Yesterday was my birthday. I turned a year older, and I finished another first draft. In just over two and half months, I’m proud to be able to announce that Mirror’s Fate is complete at 96,500 words.
Murandy Damodred and I never expected to write another book in the Mirror World series, but life has thrown us all a lot of curveballs in the past few years so it’s only fair we throw one back.
For those of you who are already fans of the Mirror World series, this book will finally reveal the true nature of the parallel worlds and also answer any questions you still had after reading the first four books.
If you haven’t read the series, I don’t recommend starting with book five, of course. The best place to begin is the first book, Mirror’s Hope, where Tendro and Mirena’s love story begins.
While you get caught up, or re-read the series as a refresher, I’ll be editing and working on a second draft and hopefully I’ll have this book ready for you sometime next year.
For a teaser though, here’s the blurb:
Balance is everything.
The Mask Tendro picked up after the battle in the Mirror World is more than it seems. When he puts it on he is flooded with all the memories of his previous lives and all the ways his future could play out. Choosing to destroy the Mask instead of giving into the temptation of hiding beneath it, Tendro decides that this time he’s going to do things differently. And that means staying one step ahead of Caralain in his own world and the one that Mirrors it.
Mirena agrees to help Tendro with his plan, even though it will have her facing harsher consequences for her involvement in the attack on the Capital. But in order to break the cycle, they’re both going to have to tread into uncharted territory and face down friends and enemies alike. Alliances shift, fates change, and the past comes back to haunt them as they finally unravel the secrets of the Mirror Worlds and their place in them.
