In Venice, magic is not unusual. Merle is apprenticed to a magic mirror maker, and Serafin, a boy who was once a master thief, works for a weaver of magic cloth. Merle and Serafin are used to the mermaids who live in the canals of the city, beautiful creatures with hideous mouths that split their faces from ear to ear, and to the guards who patrol the streets on living stone lions. Merle herself possesses something magical: a mirror whose surface is water. She can reach her whole arm into it and never get wet.

But Venice is under siege by the Egyptian Empire; its terrifying mummy warriors and flying sunbarks are waiting to strike. All that protects the Venetians is the Flowing Queen. Nobody knows who or what she is, only that her power flows through the canals and keeps the Egyptians at bay.

When Merle and Serafin overhear a plot to capture the Flowing Queen, they are catapulted into desperate danger. They must do everything they can to rescue the Queen and save the city, even if it means getting help from the Ancient Traitor himself.

Kai Meyer's bold, original fantasy conjures up a land of magic and menace as Merle and Serafin begin a journey to unimagined realms in the extraordinary world of Dark Reflections. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this a long time ago, and I remember i liked it. I might have REALLY liked it--but I can't remember. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 2/1/2014

    " An intriguing fantasy set in Venice, involving mermaids, demons, and magic mirrors. Fast-paced and engaging, it is only the first in the series, and the first book, therefore, doesn't "end." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddie | 1/16/2014

    " This book was really but i think i liked the last one the best. great plot and scarry ending!!! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 1/11/2014

    " This is the first of the Dark Reflections Trilogy. It has mermaids with pointy teeth! It is a book for teens so it is clean. Merle (dumb name but the book is from Germany) swallows the essence of the Flowing Queen and must escape the evil warriors to save her. Her blind friend Junipa is given mirrors for eyes and is sent on a separate journey. "

    " this was an interesting book and i think that it hold's a lot of promise in the next two books :) "

    " Re-read from December 31st 2010 to January 2nd 2011. I still love it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Ross | 12/2/2013

    " The Water Mirror is an interesting read. There is a twist at the end that I did not expect but it has left me anxious to read more. A bit different from most of the fantasty I've read, but that is a good thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Willshire | 11/22/2013

    " Although a young adult book this was very interesting and creative. Mermaids. Magic. Love. Stone Lions. OH MY!!! :) It was a fantastic story!!! I cannot wait to get the second book of the series!!! Very original. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 11/12/2013

    " Did they have stuff like this when I was a kid? I'm scrambling to catch up these days with all the REALLY GOOD kids' books that have come out in the first decade of the 21st century. It's just not fair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabel | 11/7/2013

    " The world of the Water Mirror is set in Venice- fantasy version. There are mermaids, giant stone lions, magic mirrors, and magic fabrics.Will write more later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitchengrrl | 11/29/2012

    " This was a really original story with some very deep thoughts for juvenile fiction. The kind of existential questions that your brain can run away with and freak you out if you think about them too long. Wooooo... :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yara | 4/24/2012

    " Slow to start, but an imaginative fantasy set in Venice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chloe | 3/28/2012

    " This is a very good book so far!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 12/12/2011

    " I'm happily hooked to this watery spooky magical world, vividly set in a fantasy Venice. I look forward to the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Inae | 11/11/2011

    " This book was amazing. The cover was what drew me in, and the story was so fascinating I couldn't put it down. I was frustrated for a while after reading it, because the sequels aren't out yet! At least, not in English. I'm still waiting, but hopefully I won't be for too much longer. Reeaaad itt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Lu | 12/27/2010

    " First ya I've read in a while. I've been drifting a little from the genre as a whole, but its an alright book. Creative, and with some powerful moments, the fantasy was believable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elithiya | 12/26/2010

    " I'm taking a break from heaviness by reading a YA fantasy. (But then again, I do that ever other week!) So far, it has some interesting creatures. The first sentence in the book is very dull though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose | 12/8/2010

    " I really liked what there was of the book, although I wished it had been a bit deeper. Alternate-world Venice, flying lions, and other elements were entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/14/2010

    " I will definitely continue to read this trilogy even though the story is almost a little too fantasy-ish for me, but I am intrigued. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sydney ?? | 11/7/2010

    " NOOOOOOO! I just finished... when Serafin died, I died. WHY DO MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS ALWAYS HAVE TO DIE! I'm crying. </3

    Anyways, it was a good series though it got a little boring and confusing at times. Let me just say the cover is phenomenal. One of the best Ive seen in a while! "
