Dying to Read (6)- The Obsidian Mirror

Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

This week the book I’m dying to read is The Obsidian Mirror by Catherine Fisher! I love Catherine’s Incarceron Series and I can’t wait to read this new series of hers! 

The Obsidian Mirror (Chronoptika #1)
Catherine Fisher
Release Date: April 23, 2013
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Dial (Penguin)
ISBN: 0803739699
Jake's father disappears while working on mysterious experiments with the obsessive, reclusive Oberon Venn. Jake is convinced Venn has murdered him. But the truth he finds at the snow-bound Wintercombe Abbey is far stranger ... The experiments concerned a black mirror, which is a portal to both the past and the future. Venn is not alone in wanting to use its powers. Strangers begin gathering in and around Venn's estate: Sarah - a runaway, who appears out of nowhere and is clearly not what she says, Maskelyne - who claims the mirror was stolen from him in some past century. There are others, a product of the mirror's power to twist time. And a tribe of elemental beings surround this isolated estate, fey, cold, untrustworthy, and filled with hate for humans. But of them all, Jake is hell-bent on using the mirror to get to the truth. Whatever the cost, he must learn what really happened to his father.

So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?


  1. I haven't read any Catherine Fisher. It sound pretty good! :)

  2. I went to add this to my "to-read" shelf on Goodreads, and it was already there! I guess I forgot... Also, the synopsis reminds me of The Obsidian Blade by Pete Hautman. I hope they're way, way, way, way, different.

    Great pick all the same! Here is my WoW.
