BLOG TOUR: The Wolf Mirror [Review]

20 feb. 2017



The Wolf MirrorThe Wolf Mirror, Caroline Healy
About the book - from Goodreads:
Changing places doesn’t always help you see things differently.

Cassie throws the first punch in a brawl at Winchester Abbey Girl’s School. Her subsequent suspension is a glitch in Cassie’s master plan; Finish School/Get Job/Leave Home (and never come back). As punishment her mother banishes her to Ludlow Park, their creepy ancestral home. In the dark of a stormy night Cassie finds herself transported to 1714, the beginning of the Georgian period.

With the help of a lady’s maid and an obnoxious gentleman, Mr Charles Stafford, Cassie must unravel the mysterious illness afflicting Lord Miller. If Lord Miller kicks the bucket the house goes to Reginald Huxley, the brainless cousin from London.

Meanwhile, Lady Cassandra Miller frantically searches for her smelling salts. Tell-a-vision, the In-her-net, horseless carriages and women wearing pantaloons; Cassandra is afraid that she might have inhaled fowl air causing her to temporarily lose her senses.

Only when both girls can get over their pride, societal prejudices and self-importance will they be able to return to their rightful century. Until then, they are free to wreak maximum damage on their respective centuries. 

This is my second time writing a review in English so I apologize for any mistake before you start reading. This not the way I usually review books (my main language is spanish) but I like to try new things so ... here we are.
The first thing I have to say about the book is that I've never read or seen something like this before. The plot is so great and original... and once you get involved with the story then you finish it in nothing. 

At first, it is quite slow but then I couldn't stop reading... I needed to know who was behind the mistery of Lord Miller. It was so easy to follow and even though the ended seemed a little rushed to me, I enjoyed the whole book. Cassie and Lady Cassandra, our main characters, felt real, they were not perfect and I liked that. 

It was funny and interesting to see two different people from different centuries adapting to heir new realities and taking the place of the other. At the beginning I didn't connect neither with both characters but as the story was developing so did the girls... and they turned out to be nice characters  :)

It was a really enjoyable book and it's the perfect one to read if you're looking for a quick  and pleaseant reading.
