…When Hayden was a child, she lost her cat. Adults told her the cat ran away, but she knew the truth. The mirror had taken her. She knew because the mirror gave her a glimpse of an alternate world and had nearly pulled her in, so she was certain the cat had suffered that fate.
Twenty years later, Hayden discovers the secret of the mirror when she is thrust into it. She learns of an enchanted world she never knew existed, and a family she never knew she had.
But danger brought her here, and it followed her. Now, Hayden is on a mission to remove the threat, so that she can begin her magical, meaningful new life in this enchanted world.
Get ready for a charming and magical adventure with this book! If you love a cozy mystery that adds mystical/magical attributes, then you're going to find yourself absorbed into this book and will want to devour it in one sitting. Elizabeth Pantley paints a whimsical journey as you follow along with Hayden and her cat, Sassy (aka Latifa). The characters are relatable and full of unique qualities that help define their place in the storyline.
In addition to the mystery, we have other spin-offs within the book that have you trying to wrap your head around everything going on. But it's such a smooth, seamless process that you'll have no problem keeping up. I loved how Destiny Falls is ever-changing and you can't pinpoint what will happen next.
Even with the magical/fantasy aspects of the book, there are a lot of relatable situations (especially with Hayden and her family) as well as the shift from living a happy, fulfilled, safe life to one of uncertainty and breaking new bonds before they're even formed. I love that that there are more books in this series. Can't wait to read where it goes!
