Review: Dark Mirror

Dark Mirror (Dark Mirror, #1)
Dark Mirror
M.J. Putney
St. Martin's Griffin
Lady Victoria Mansfield, youngest daughter of the earl and countess of Fairmount, is destined for a charmed life. Soon she will be presented during the London season, where she can choose a mate worthy of her status.

Yet Tory has a shameful secret—a secret so powerful that, if exposed, it could strip her of her position and disgrace her family forever. Tory's blood is tainted . . . by magic.

When a shocking accident forces Tory to demonstrate her despised skill, the secret she's fought so hard to hide is revealed for all to see. She is immediately exiled to Lackland Abbey, a reform school for young men and women in her position. There she will learn to suppress her deplorable talents and maybe, if she's one of the lucky ones, be able to return to society.

But Tory's life is about to change forever. All that she's ever known or considered important will be challenged. What lies ahead is only the beginning of a strange and wonderful journey into a world where destiny and magic come together, where true love and friendship find her, and where courage and strength of character are the only things that determine a young girl's worth.

My Review:  This book was a fast and thrilling read. I love the time periods it was set in. Great Characters and using real history to play as the adventure was amazing. I just picked up the second book so I look forward to reading the complete series and adding them to my shelves. My daughter is reading now so more of a review to come when she finishes.
