4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable., 18 Dec. 2012
This review is from: 01: The Obsidian Mirror (Shakespeare Quartet) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Jake has just been expelled from his boarding school in Switzerland so he is going to be sent home to live with his Godfather, Oberon Venn who, he believes, killed his Father. Obviously as a minor, he cannot travel alone so his head of Humanities teacher, Mr. Wharton travels with him back to England and to the strange house of Oberon Venn.

Wintercombe Abbey is not exactly a welcoming place and neither is Venn very welcoming either. Jake is determined however to find out what happened to his Father. In the events that follow, Wharton decides to stay on to help Jake and also to try and protect him.

The story centres around a centuries old black mirror which supposedly you can time travel through.........is this where Jake's Father disappeared to? You will have to read this really quite good book to find out.

It is very well written although I did notice two teeny mistakes.....1) The Shee should be written as The Sidhe although it is pronounced as the former and 2) Mortimer Dee is incorrect. It was John Dee who was Elizabeth the Firsts Astrologer. Leaving these two niggles aside, I would recommend this book thoroughly for adults and children alike.

Are those actually mistakes, or a deliberate choice by the author? My thought, on reading the book, was the latter.
