Format: Paperback
In this book the whole story from the beginings of the tale of the mirror is shockingly unvailed and the purpose of the books laid bare. The level of plot twists involved in this book caused me to read the entire thing in less than 48hrs. IF anything could be faulted the scene on the rock is slightly long but as the writing is so good this was not a big issue.

The plot all comes together at the end and there were moments where I was gob-smacked.. I originally thought the well of echoes had nothing to do with the view from the mirrors .. how wrong I was.. absolutely astounding, finished reading it yesterday.. yes, there may be a few flaws, but these are completely wiped out by the intricacy of the plot, the characters behind it, of whom many are very endearing and I just wish that it could continue!! Cant wait for the next book telling of Karan and Llian and Maigraith! 5 stars Ian, well done!

I discovered Ian Irvine this year and was delighted to find out I had been slow finding him, enabling me to buy all the titles to date and read the story one book after the other. I couldn't put the books down!
Although not as good as some of the previous books it held my attention. I had planned to pass the series on to my 12 year old son who is an avid reader but this and the other two of this trilogy are a bit to dark and gruesome for his age although I'm sure it wouldn't matter to him.'

Another masterpiece from Irvine, picking up right where the last left off. MASSIVE plot and background develpment in this one, and as I have come to expect, it ends on a cliffhanger. Very good book, but I wouldn't advise it if you haven't read the first in the series.

Irvine is brilliant, the whole series has been gripping from book to book, and this one is no exception. I am so excited I don't think I can wait a year til the next one comes out!

Having enjoyed the first book of the series and really been left hanging at the end of that one, I was naturally very much looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, I feel quite disappointed with it and I am surprised that other reviewers have given it five stars. I would have given it only two stars if it was a stand alone. But much as it drags down my rating of the first instalment, 'The Fate of the Fallen' pulls up its successor.

I just didn't enjoy the reading experience. Sometimes being good at describing something can work against the author and page after page of Maelys wriggling through slimy things was literally overkill for me. I also thought that there were some major flaws both in character development as well as in the story telling.

My star ratings are the result of the following breakdown:
How difficult was it to put the book down: not very difficult = three stars
Would I buy the hardcover of this one: no = one star
Am I likely to read it again: possibly bits of it if it connects a good first book with a good third book = three stars
