Reviews for Mirror Images Book 1: The Darkness of Man
"This book is amazing. I bought it on a whim when I ran out of books on my phone. What a great purchase. I could not put it down. The suspense had me flying through each chapter (even when I said to myself, just one more chapter). What a great book. Can't wait for the next one!!!!!" by 945reader
"I am normally a person who reads history or older westerns. But the description and the cover of this book caught my attention. And I have to say I was very impressed with the authors spin. It was nice to read a book with an original plot and theory. I would recommend this book and look forward to more from the author." by JP
"The Darkness of Man is an awesome concept by a remarkably talented author. I've often thought there's magic in mirrors and Powers brings it on home. Don't miss it!" by Charlene Keel

"This book delivers the suspense, mistery and excitement that I look for and a good book. I will definitely read this one again! New fav!" by D. Alexander
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mirror Images Book 1: The Darkness of Man. I can't wait for the next book to come out!" by Jennifer W.
"The story was what grabbed me when I read the blurb for this book. It's original and I was instantly intrigued. (The cover is brilliant as well, it captures what the book is about and looks really cool at the same time!)
"The main character is Gabe, a guy who makes the mistake of thinking the wrong things in front of a mirror and in doing so unwittingly trades places with his image on the other side. I loved the concept of this, it was nicely creepy. That said, this book isn't a horror - it is full of horrifying things, but it is a fast-paced action-packed fantasy novel with a host of colourful characters and two settings; here, and the brutal perilous land on the other side of the mirror.
"It's edge of seat stuff and I read the whole thing over 2 nights. I wasn't sure about the narrative used, as there's a lot of 'head-hopping' going on. I prefer first person, or third person limited, and as a result I didn't feel like I connected with the characters until pretty late on. That said, I did connect with them and actually gasped out loud when something happened unexpectedly to one of them - but I won't spoil that surprise!
"I enjoyed the dialogue exchanges between Gabe and the people he meets in Darkar, in particular Dozier and Haylay. There were some darkly humorous moments which I enjoyed thoroughly. The highlights for me were the images experiences on our side of the mirror. The sadistic Cutter, Gabe's image, amused me with his confusion of how things are on our side of the mirror. There was even a laugh out loud bit for me about peanuts, of all things!
"Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I will be looking out for the next one." by S.S. Martin
