Amelia Atwater Rhodes, author of Shattered Mirror, does an amazing job of making Sarah both a strong, prideful, determined, and brave, but at the same time she has this underlining vulnerability that I love. She isn’t perfect and that’s one of the reason’s she’s so relatable. This is a great YA, paranormal fantasy series with vampires, witches, shapeshifters, supernatural elements, mystery, suspense, danger, action, drama, and a little angst. Christopher and Sarah seem like typical teenagers, but they are anything but.

Sarah Vida is a witch and a vampire hunter — and a loner. Christopher Ravena is a vampire trying to pass as a normal high school student who wants to know Sarah better. Drawn to him despite her better judgment, Sarah’s forced to admit that there’s room for gray in her otherwise black-and-white world of good versus evil — until she meets Nikolas, Christopher’s twin and one of the most hunted vampires in history.

This was the first of Atwater-Rhodes' novels — and if memory serves correct the first vampire fiction too — that I ever actually read, all the way back in middle school. This is what got me into vampires in the first place, and so I can't help but look back at it with nostalgia goggles.

Plot — The plot is simple but still good. The main character, Sarah Tigress Vida, is a descendant of a vampire hunting Vida bloodline of witches, arranged by her cold, distant mother to attend a high school as cover after blowing an attempt at knife-staking a high profile vampire and ending up in a cast as a result. The school has two vampire students, a brother and sister, who don't kill and thus are extremely weak. The brother vampire takes an interest in Sarah, evidently not even able to identify her as a witch. All the while, Sarah keeps an eye out for Nikolas, the vampire she was hunting beforehand, who is infamous among witches and hunters for knifing his signature onto his victims. Sarah's time around the "self-domesticated" vampire siblings however, starts to pressure the black and white view of vampires that her witch family's laws instilled in her.

Characters — The characters are decent enough for a novel of its demographic and by such a young author. Nothing like Anne Rice wrote of course, but still acceptable. Sarah is clearly presented as an independent, knowledgeable, rebellious, strong if overly-confident female protagonist eager to take solo missions. Christopher, the vampire brother, plays the artistic suitor with a nice touch, without coming off as a creep. Nissa, the sister, nicely portrays the toned down vampire living with a vow of non-violence. Sarah's witch matriarch mother, Dominique, is an oil on canvas rendition of the cold, distant, zero excuses parent that only cares about results.

Writing — The writing is very good for an author who was in their teens when they penned the book. By adult standards it's still very simple of course, but still a lot better than some of the garbage that somehow makes it onto the NYT Best Seller list. The characters could have had a lot more depth, but they aren't cardboard cut outs either. The story isn't amazingly deep, but handling death, morality, independence, and family loyalty, it isn't totally vapid either.

Bottom Line — After the series that does not need to be named came around, there's been a flood of poorly written, watered down, cookie cutter, YA paranormal romances written by authors that are afraid of violence. This is not one of them. Shattered Mirror is "vampires in high school" done right. Unlike other novels along the same line, the main conflict isn't about swooning over a sexy vampire stud. It's about hunting down a killer and driving a knife into his frigging ribs while questioning the very upbringing that tells you that all of his kind deserve the same thing even if they aren't killers. In that respect alone, it kind of is a rare gem.
I have to admit, I blew through this book in about an hour. It was not that it was insubstantial (the book is 225 pages long), it was because it was a generally good read. I couldn't put it down.
The book is about Sarah Vida, a member of the Vida line of witches. The Vidas are elite vampire killers and devote their entire lives to that goal. Sarah was raised with the rules of the Vidas and was taught to see the world in black and white. That is until she meets Christopher...
Christopher is a vampire, but he is weak and does not feed on human blood. Although she has been trained to hate vampires, Sarah soon finds herself charmed by the artistic and polite Christopher. Through her relationship with Christopher, Sarah begins to see that having vampire blood does not make a person evil. She learns that the world is not black and white and that there are shades of gray.
While the book is not incredibly profound, it is still very entertaining. That in itself is a good thing.
One of my favorite vampire/witch stories about the humanity in all of us. Thank you for writing, I'll continue to read books by the author.
I loved the story line and the characters but the book was pretty superficial, barely skimming over what could've been a richly detailed start to a series.
Quite frankly, I am very disappointed that there was no sequel, let alone a series to follow. Hopefully, Ms. Atwater-Rhodes will pick up where she left off and tell us more about Sara, Christopher, Nicholas and Nissa. I am also curious about Adianna and the Vidas, along with Single Earth.
Yellow Judge
Book was in excellent shape no complaints.
I don't remember how I found this book, but I really enjoy the story. Its short which is good and bad. Its an easy read but leaves the reader wanting more in the end-and there isn't a sequel to the book. I love the characters as well as the references made to another book-demon in my view by atwater-rhodes. If you enjoy vampire romance (although it wasn't focused so much on romance like in twilight) Id check it out. Its not like twilight, nor are the characters, but its short and doesn't feel like its been concluded and there's no sequel to it unfortunately. For the story though I give it 5 stars!
I read this back in middle school and really liked it. Some of the characters could've used a little more development because I couldn't remember several. Actually I still don't remember after re-reading it. But it's an interesting read that would be good to borrow.
I've been wanting to read this book, but I couldn't bother myself with going to a library so I bought it instead. The book itself came in very good condition. I had assumed they would send me the book with the girl on the front cover, but instead I got the book with the original illustration. Very very pleased.
