Summary

Bridei is a young nobleman, a fosterling of one of the most powerful druids in the land, Broichan. All of Bridei's earliest memories are of this dark and mysterious man he trusts above all others. Broichan seems to have plans for Bridei, seems to be training him for a special purpose the older man will not divulge. One bitter Midwinter's Eve, everything changes when Bridei finds a child on their doorstep - a child abandoned by the Fair Folk.
It is the height of ill fortune to have truck with the Fair Folk, and all in the area counsel the babe's death. But Bridei sees an old and precious magic at work and, heedless of the danger, fights to save the child. Broichan is wary but relents, for Bridei must grow to be his own man and make his own decisions.
As Bridei comes to manhood, he watches the shy girl Tuala blossom into a beautiful woman, and feels things he didn't know were possible.
Broichan sees the same process and feels only danger, for Tuala could be a key part in Bridei's future...or could spell his doom.

enthralling

I found this book enthralling - the story is fast flowing, the characters believable, I became immersed in the setting. The narrator does a great job, I had no trouble listening to him. My only complaint is that the other books in the series are not available on audible!

Great

Where does The Dark Mirror rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have more than 300 hrs of audio books and I've enjoyed this one as much or more than any so far

The Dark Mirror

The story is set beautifully! It weaves and winds around each charater until you fall in love with them. I understand the last reviewer, but we all can not have every book that we read unfold they way WE wish. As for my reviewing friend just listen to that last 1/4...... I know why you were upset... because these charaters are so well created and presented! I am sad that my story is over and here searching for the 2nd addition! :)
