Mirrored Time by J.D. Faulkner is the story of a young woman’s incredible journey of discovering herself. Gwen believes she is a normal woman who decided not to go into law school because her aunt is fighting cancer. Instead, she answers an ad for a job in the Archives. However, this job is not the legal filing she believed she would be doing. Her new boss, Alistair, holds many secrets, including what the Archives really are: time streams. Gwen must come to terms with the new knowledge that time is not linear, her own ability to use the time streams, and deal with Rafe, the handsome young thief who wants to protect her. Meanwhile, there is a dark force working to get out of its mirrored prison.
J.D. Faulkner tells a riveting story in Mirrored Time. I won’t give any spoilers, but the end is a surprising twist that has me aching to read the next book. The book does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, but I enjoy that personally. This book had me smiling, crying, and on the edge of my seat. Gwen and Rafe were characters that were easy to identify with, and I loved that the story wove in key aspects of Gwen’s “normal” life so that I could journey through the heartache and happiness with her. The plot is fascinating and kept me guessing about what was going to happen. Faulkner’s writing is easy to read and flows well; I forgot I was reading because I was transported into the story. I look forward to the next book.
