Each character is introduced with a bang; poignant and compelling imagery introduces Helen with the birth of her child, the product of a brutal rape. The intense fight for survival was haunting, and with each page, my heart ached for Helen. I found myself rooting for her, but with a morbid curiosity about the one who victimized her simultaneously.
My wishes to know more were always satiated, as Broken Mirror answers all of the reader's questions in great detail. The author succeeds in creating a truly mulch-dimensional killer; the other main character Lucas Wheelan does not fit the typical murderer prototype, which makes his character increasingly compelling and disturbing. Getting inside his psyche and his thoughts was satisfyingly macabre; his use of his authority and his unrelenting dark thoughts left me with a pit in my stomach .
The tangled web of murder, revenge, and evil is woven in such an attention grabbing way as the story peaks again and again that I could not put it down. It is a thrilling look into the world beyond, and into the mind of a killer. The twists and turns along the way left me both in absolute shock, and wanting more.
Oliver Rixon has crafted such an amazing version of a thriller that just keeps you guessing throughout the whole book. You feel for and understand the "heroine" and even his villain was more than just your typical bad guy. Each character is so beautifully written you are invested in them. Even the side characters (sometimes a throwaway with other authors) are perfectly done; you care about what happens to them and what they are doing, but not so much so that it distracts you from the main characters and story. He also has added in a twist that really takes the story to the next level!
Murder, lost love, reincarnation, and so much more! If you like thrillers, you will LOVE this book! Honestly, if you love reading, you will love this book. It is just that good. I can't wait to see what he comes out with next!!
The characters are well developed and dynamic, which allows them to be believable. The plot is structured beautifully and precisely, which moves not too slow and not too fast. All details included only enhance the reader’s understanding and nothing unnecessary is included. It’s clear that the author has created a work of art and Broken Mirror could not have been written in any other way.
Whilst reading, there are loose strings floating around everywhere, leaving questions hanging and avoiding answers. The end ties everything together so perfectly that you realize the strings were left intentionally. The ending is surprising in itself and allows for further deep thoughts. This is a book which could easily be analyzed.
It’s well worth the price considering the fact that I will be re-reading this in the future. I would recommend this book to people who love psychological thrillers as this book is simply that. I’d give this book 6/5 if I could.
He gives us a three-dimensional social path in Lucas Wheelan that pulls you in for a close look and then scares you silly. The whole time you feel like you’re part of a cat and mouse game that leaves your heart racing a bit. I loved the storyline with Jenny, it was one of my favorite parts, but I love paranormal and the author pulled together a solid balance at weaving and enfolding it around such a strong sociopath. Great job, I’m ready for more.
