    Story
    (53)

    Once there were three worlds, each with their own human species. Then, fleeing out of the void came a fourth species, the Charon. Desperate, on the edge of extinction, they changed the balance between the worlds forever. Karan, a sensitive with a troubled heritage, is forced to steal an ancient relic in repayment of a debt. It turns out to be the Mirror of Aachan, a twisted, deceitful thing that remembers everything it has ever seen.

    Scott says: "Not quite good enough."
    "Excellent series"
    Overall

    This is a most excellent fantasy series. I've listened to hundreds, probably thousands, of Audible hours over the past few years and this is one of my favorites. The world Ian Irvine has created is well defined and completely believable. He keeps the tension tight throughout the four books: you are never bored. The plot is seldom predictable and the character development is extensive. There is a good balance between dreadful moments when things go all wrong for the heros, and "happy sigh" moments when things go just right. The reader is perfect with a rich variety of voices that are never annoying. The first book can be a bit tedious sometimes as the heroine is running for her life through most of it, but the other three books have a much better variety of action.
