Description

Two girls. Two worlds. Only magic can bring them together, in this fantastical middle grade adventure for fans of the Descendants and School for Good and Evil series.

Halan is a powerless princess. She is heir to the Magi Kingdom, a blazing desert land ruled by ancient magic. But unlike every royal before her, Halan has no magical powers of her own.

Nalah is a powerful pauper. The glassblower's daughter, she lives in the land of New Hadar, where magic is strictly outlawed. But Nalah has a powerful force growing within her—one she can't always control.

One girl fears magic, one worships it. But when a legendary mirror connects them, Nalah and Halan finally meet—and must work together to save their two worlds, before everything they know is shattered forever.

        Gr 4-7-Into the crowded highway of middle grade fantasy enters newcomer Cyprus, with a mystical tale of two girls from mirror worlds connected by a magical shard of glass. Halan is heir to the Magi Kingdom; but alas, this princess is devoid of magic, and thus a detriment to her world. Nalah, a glassblower's daughter, lives in New Hadar and holds a powerful magic within her that threatens to erupt in a land where magic is strictly forbidden. When wealthy Tam approaches Nalah and asks for help repairing a magical mirror, Nalah sees a chance to solve her family's money woes. She doesn't realize that by helping Tam she creates a link between the two worlds, which Tam escapes to while kidnapping Nalah's father. Nalah must travel to the Magi Kingdom to rescue her father. Nalah and Halan team up to uncover the identity of the rebels who are torturing innocent people, even if it implicates the King, Halan's father. The girls' tales unfold in alternating chapters, which eventually overlap in this adventure. VERDICT Those searching for a new fantasy may want to give this one a try, but a fair amount of violence and a somewhat complicated story line may keep less confident readers from sticking with it.-Michele Shaw, Quail Run Elementary School, San Ramon, CA

        September 1, 2017
        A tale of two girls fighting for justice and truth in a Middle Eastern-inflected world of magic. Nalah Bardak, or, as the other magic-using Thauma kids call her, "No-Luck" due to her clumsiness, helps her struggling father sell glass trinkets at the New Hadar market. The Hokmet government strictly forbids any magical activity, so most Thauma live quietly, trying to sell their wares inconspicuously. Her friend Marcus Cutter fares better, as his rich family has connections that allow them to continue Thauma craftwork. When Zachary Tam, an old family acquaintance, asks the Bardaks to re-create an illegal mirror, Nalah secretly takes the commission, hoping to earn enough to start a new life far from Hokmet rule. As soon as Tam receives the mirror, however, he kidnaps her father and escapes through it into another realm. Crossing over in pursuit, Nalah and Marcus find a world eerily similar to their own. There, Nalah meets Princess Halan, a decidedly powerless royal who dreams of life outside her palace walls and whose story unfolds in alternating chapters. Under extreme circumstances these two must work together to reveal the truth of their worlds and restore peace. Cyprus creates in Nalah and Halan two appealing and independent female protagonists; their mirrored worlds are a fresh alternative to familiar medieval Europe-esque fantasylands. A story that will inspire many to find the light within. (Fantasy. 8-12)
