“Mirror X” by Karri Thompson was phenomenal. I could not put this story down. I wanted to know what was happening and where the storyline was headed the entire time. Thompson does a great job at keeping the reader in the dark too. The reader was able to find out what was going on when Cassie found out what was going on. I think “Mirror X” is very well written. Thompson grips the reader right away and continues to keep them hooked throughout the story. There was one revelation right after another.
Cassie wakes up in the year 3025 when she had died in the year 2022. She doesn’t know anyone, her entire world has completely fallen apart. She is told that she is the only person that is able to save humanity. Cassie is woken up in a world where women can’t conceive. When Cassie finds out that she is the only female that is able to get pregnant and have a baby, she doesn’t want to do it. She is only 17 years old and she wasn’t to live her life a little. Cassie finds out what is really going on in this new world and all she wants to do is get out.
Cassie is an amazing character. I loved her from the very beginning and I was on her side the entire time. Saving the world may be the right thing to do what you should have a choice not be commanded. I actually thought that Cassie was handing life pretty well for some that has been frozen in time for so long. I think Cassie is a very well developed character. I don’t feel like Cassie grew up at all but I do feel like I got to know her a whole lot more as the book went on. I’m not really sure that Cassie had any growing up to do anyway.
The story line and plot were absolutely fantastic. I really couldn’t put this book down. “Mirror X” was great. I am looking for to the sequel because this is a story I don’t want to miss. The revelations in each chapter were fantastic. I felt like I was getting to know a little bit more about the mystery of what was going on. The plot was rushed a few times, so there were a few flaws but all in all I think that the story is great and Thompson did a wonderful job. I would definitely recommend picking this up as your next great summer read.
I think “Mirror X” has just enough mystery in it to keep a reader hooked. I am looking forward to the next installment in the Van Winkle Project.
