Summary

A glorious epic fantasy in the grand tradition of CS Lewis and Philip Pullman, and a major publishing event, The Mirror Chronicles will take you into another world and on the adventure of your lifetime…. < /p>

Half of your soul is missing. The lost part is in the mirror. And unless Sylas Tate can save you, you will never be whole again.

Sylas Tate leads a lonely existence since his mother died. But then the tolling of a giant bell draws him into another world known as the Other, where he discovers not only that he has an inborn talent for the nature-influenced magic of the Fourth Way but also that his mother might just have come from this strange parallel place.

Meanwhile evil forces are stirring, and an astounding revelation awaits Sylas as to the true nature of the Other. As violence looms and the stakes get ever higher, Sylas must seek out a girl called Naeo who might just be the other half of his soul - otherwise the entire universe may fall....

Critic reviews

"I became totally immersed in an amazing world of painted words...breathtaking and an absolute joy to read.... A book that you will reflect on for the rest of your life. Just like when you first read the Hobbit or Sabriel or took your first stroll along the story path of Terry Pratchett.... Fantastically exciting.... Quite simply.... Possibly the best book that I have read - or will read - this year." (Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books)
"Dramatic and with perils that are both real and colourfully described. Highly recommended." (The Bookbag)
"Not since Harry Potter have I devoured a fantasy world as much as this. Just from this, his debut novel, I can tell Ian Johnstone will sit high up on the fantasy author list at some point soon, I'm certain of it." (Readaraptor)
