From the Inside Flap
"With The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, Stephen R. Donaldson changed the face of fantasy fiction forever. In The Mirror of Her Dreams," the astonishing first novel in the two-volume Mordant's Need series, Donaldson shows us a world of wondrous beauty and seductive illusion, where mirrors hold the deadliest of magics and nothing is what it seems. . . .
The daughter of rich but neglectful parents, Terisa Morgan lives alone in a New York City apartment, a young woman who has grown to doubt her own existence. Surrounded by the flat reassurance of mirrors, she leads an unfulfilled life--until the night a strange man named Geraden comes crashing through one of her mirrors, on a quest to find a champion to save his kingdom of Mordant from a pervasive evil that threatens the land. Terisa is no champion. She wields neither magic nor power. And yet, much to her own surprise, when Geraden begs her to come back with him, she agrees.
Now, in a culture where women are little more than the playthings of powerful men, in a castle honeycombed with secret passages and clever traps, in a kingdom threatened from without and within by enemies able to appear and vanish out of thin air, Terisa must become more than the pale reflection of a person. For the way back to Earth is closed to her. And the enemies of Mordant will stop at nothing to see her dead.
From the Back Cover
g Joyse and the kingdom of Mordant are in dire need; threatened by the evil arch-Imager Vagel and the hordes of Cadwal from without, betrayed by unknown enemies from within, Terisa Morgan is Mordant's unlikely champion, plucked from a life of wealthy dreariness in New York by the accidental magic of the apprentice Imager Geraden. The kingdom is directed by the power of images, of visions and of mirrors and Terisa and Geraden must master this power if Mordant is to survive. But the traps laid for them are many and treacherous…
'The Mirror Of Her Dreams' is the first volume of 'Mordant's Need', the mesmerizing new series from Stephen Donaldson, internationally acclaimed master of fantasy.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. See all Product Description

I read it from cover to cover enjoying both the story line and characters, at the three quarter stage I searched Amazon for the second volume and ordered it. Book 2 arrived on the morning of my last chapter of book 1.
(NB: Intrigued by the word Mordant? Look it up...)
This is where it suddenly gets curious. Two sides are formed before the halfway point of the book. The first is the kings side who appears to not care less whether his land survives or dies while the other side is the Imagers who want to try to save the land they live in. The author is clearly (but also oddly) on the kings side despite him being written as someone who deserves to lose while the Imagers (who are later replaced as the kings enemies with warring neighbouring countries who want to take the kings throne) are seen as traitors and evil. A further oddity comes in the form of Arch-Imager Vagel. He never appears in the book yet he is mentioned several times as the person who is causing some of the trouble described within. No proof of him being part of this is given however yet he is still blamed for much of the troubles.Read more ›
