Críticas:

PRAISE FOR INCARCERON AND SAPPHIQUE:

'... displays all of her usual strenth of imagination ... she is simply too good to miss.'

( Independent)

'... stands out above all others. Its imaginative scale and gobsmacking finale make it one of the best fantasy novels written for a long time.' ( Times, Amanda Craig)

'one of today's best fantasy writers ... a deliciously dark and scary ride.' ( Independent)

'... imaginative, rich in texture and vividly realised. Catherine Fisher writes with consummate skill and depth of feeling.' ( The Bookseller)

'One of this year's most striking fantasy novels' ( Amanda Craig, The Times)

PRAISE FOR THE ORACLE SEQUENCE:

'... a rich, resonant conclusion to the series.'

( Booklist - May 06)

'Vivid, complicated, and thoroughly engrossing, this fast paced adventure keeps readers avidly turning pages until the majestic conclusion.' ( Horn Book Review May/June 06)

... an intoxicating world reminiscent of the Arabian Nights. Highly recommended. ( The Bookseller)

suspense is constantly built ... rattles along at a dizzying pace ... next volume please. ( School Librarian)

A crisp, quick-moving narrative and fully fleshed out characters will keep readers hooked ( Publisher's Weekly)

A powerful and very exciting adventure story. ( School Library Journal)

'... one of the most skilled and original writers currently working in young adult fantasy' ( New Welsh Review)

'Beautifully imagined and realised, this novel of future regression is rich with strong characters, big issues and a compelling plot. It is a barnstorming piece of serious fantasy that doesn't put a foot wrong.' ( The Bookbag)

'Catherine Fisher is an artist with words ... An engrossing, intricate story of an extraordinary journey undertaken by ricjly imaginative characters' ( Carousel)

'a deliciously dark and scary ride.' ( Nicholas Tucker, The Independent)

'a deep and sophisticated adventure story' ( Write Away)

'... wholly engaging and rushes along as a breathless and nail-biting pace ... a gripping read that should enthral both young and old fans' ( Buzz)

'the most cleverly comples and fascinating novel for teenagers I have read since His Dark Materials.' ( School Librarian)

A sophisticated and beautifully written novel with a brilliant climax. ( School Librarian)

A genre buster... a great set up for what promises to be a fantastic series. ( Bookbag)

A riveting read that will leave you impatient for the next installment. ( Peters Gazette)

Time-travelling, historical, supernatural sci-fi thriller, with its replicants, fairies, crazed scientists, changelings, wolves, genies and Dickensian waifs. Don't ask, just enjoy. ( Financial Times)

Author of the brilliant Incarceron and Sapphique books embarks on an ambitious new series with The Obsidian Mirror. ( We Love This Book)

Time travel and the faery world collide in the first book in a stunning new sequence from the best-selling author. ( Western Mail)

A new novel by Catherine Fisher, poet and prize-winning novelist, is always a treat. The Obsidian Mirror is both thriller and science fiction and - being written in Fisher's acid prose - is equally satisfying to fans of both genres. ( The Times)

Another fascinating hero can be found in Catherine Fisher's The Obsidian Mirror. Fisher's universe is wholly envisaged. This is bleak, brittle and brilliant. ( Literary Review)

Dark and scary with a fast moving narrative and imaginative characters. An intricate plot... a real page turner for teenagers. ( Carousel)

Clever, complex and sophisticated. Fisher not only interweaves strands of dystopian Science Fiction with fairy tale fantasy but expertly crafts a story of loss with bittersweet and tantalising prospect of time travel fixing everything. The book is a tangled web and Fisher jumps from scene to scene with cliff hanger moments urging the reader to unlock her puzzle. ( School Librarian)

Extremely exciting and interesting, and it keeps you on your toes throughout the book. ( Scottish Daily Record)

This book is beautifully written and keeps you wanting more. It's fantasy with a thrill of adventure, and is one of those books that you just can't put down. ( Teen Titles)

A well-plotted, gripping fantasy adventure with a touch of wild magic. ( Booktrust)

One of the most engrossing fantasy thrillers of last year. ( The Daily Telegraph)

Reseña del editor:

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.
