In “The Mirage” (shortened the title), a beloved character from the first book comes back in a very unexpected way. I definitely did not see that coming. I have been wondering about the fate of said person since they went missing. Needless to say, a lot of the loose ends from the previous books are beginning to be revealed.
A bad habit that Mr. Crusoe has with his dialogue is over explaining situations. There is no need to simplify every single event. I suggest trying to replace some of that dialogue with action scenes. Show us, don’t tell us. And PLEASE don’t repeat dialogue. I got it the first time. If you’re trying to update a new character through an old character just write “Asha filled her in”, or something like that. Don’t re-explain! Argh! That drove me nuts. That is really the only thing left for Mr. Crusoe to work out.
The “Mirage” was an interesting place. This is a great example of how much Mr. Crusoe’s writing has improved. The picture he paints of this ethereal world is fantastic. It sounds beautiful and magical. I would love to see this world brought to life in film or animation.
Learning more about Asha was a real treat too. Her character is growing and I’ve built a real fondness for her. She’s strong and intuitive but not egotistical. The relationship that her and Zahn are building is beautiful to witness. The bond between them grows stronger every page. They bring a new definition to “soul mates”.
Speaking of growing character, Zahn is getting wise and very philosophical! There are a ton of points that he makes in the story that stuck me right in the heart. Between him and Asha, they would make one heck of a governing system. I would like to see them move up the ranks.
The action in this story is steady and is paced well to keep you on your toes! The creative plot twists were surprising and interesting.

The way the people communicated on Tavisi was very fascinating, almost as if the internet of today was replaced by thought or just implanted into their brains. I quickly grew to feel for Jyana as she studied the plight of the crabs. The distrust seen in Torin for much of the book sadly rubbed off on Jyana for some time, and I kept hoping it wouldn't make cooperation impossible with Zahn and Asha.
This is my favorite book out of the three books so far, and I could clearly see how the author's writing style has grown through the trilogy. The Mirage on the Brink of Oblivion really grabbed me, was a fun read, and encourages the reader to consider many topics in the real world around them. Andrew Crusoe brought the threads all together at the end, which felt very complete and peaceful to me; there are still some loose ends that could lead to more stories though. Let's encourage him to tell them, too.
This book was an easy read. The plot followed on the story line of previous books and continued to build a universe where a young boy and girl found themselves challenged to find ways to save all of humanity in a far flung universe. There were times when I wondered how someone who was as young as these could end up with faster than light space vehicles and some of the decisions the society described by this story did not follow what I might have thought were rational directions; but the story did flow well and in the end it seemed to come together well.
There was a sense of accomplishment that the story followed through with; yet you were left with the impression that there were so many more things these people would accomplish.
The two young people displayed different ways to solve their problems that worked in harmony with each other so that neither dominated in the decision making and overshadowed the other
The author is still building the universe and story line and it was good to watch it grow through the series. I hope he continues to build on the universe and to mature the two young people as they progress from adventure to adventure.
