Conspirator. Failure. Murderer.

Seraphina Dovetail is used to being called all these things. As the seventh-born daughter to a witch, and the cause of her mother losing both her powers and her life, Sera has always felt isolated. Until Nikolai Barrington.

The young professor not only took an interest in Sera—he took her into his home, hired her for his moonlighting detective agency, and gave her the one thing she’d always dreamed of: a chance. Under Barrington’s tutelage, Sera can finally take the School of Continuing Magic entrance exam to become an inspector and find her family. Now if only she could stop her growing attraction to her maddening boss—which is about as easy as this fiery elementalist quitting setting things on fire.

But when ghosts start dragging Sera into possessions so deep she can barely escape, and then the souls of lost witches and wizards appear trapped in mirrors, these two opposites will have to work together to uncover a much deeper secret that could destroy the Witchling world…


Action packed and well-paced!” -Tammy R., NetGalley

Mirror Bound was a magical read. It really was. If I hadn’t loved the first book so much this would probably be a five star review, but I think the first book gave me very high expectations. Seventh Born was a 5 star plus for me. I loved every second.

10 stars out of 5. Extraordinary sequel!

It has been absolutely lovely to be back in the magical world of Seraphina Dovetail and Professor Barrington, as well as the magical community in which they live. The story picks up some months after the events of the series opener. It is a pleasure to see... ...more

Oh my!! This book was so much better than the first where the multitude of mysteries unfolding in the pages had me gasping with joy. The story pulled me from all angles. The chemistry between the lead characters had me wincing with the muted passion that was shown.

Sera was now living with Profes... ...more

Loving this series. Sera and Barrington are both dealing with inner demons. Their work relationship and personal one are starting to merge together. While a lot of the focus was on Sera and her exams the mystery part of it was interesting. I wish there would be more about the background of the ev... ...more

***ARC received in exchange of an honest opinion***

Mirror Bound starts right after Seventhborn ended and I loved going back to Sera and Barrignton.

This book might have been less angsty than the first one, but I loved seeing Sera and Barrington's relationship grow and evolve. I also loved learning... ...more

I really don’t know how to put into words how much I love and appreciate this series. Sometimes, I guess, you are meant to just feel and leave it at that.
Still, I can’t say nothing at all, so here we go.
I don’t think that I have ever read a love story that intense. Every tiny caress felt like a v... ...more

This novel was an enjoyable read and continues the story of Seraphina Dovetail, whom is trying to discover her family, become an inspector, and keeping ghosts away from her. As a seventhborn, she is treated unfairly and has very few allies, one being Professor Nikolai Barrington. Sera became his... ...more

3.75/5 stars.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did Seventh Born. I absolutely loved the first book, so I was really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, this just didn't hit me right. A lot of it felt predictable to me, especially the climax near the end. For most of this book I was tee... ...more

By Nikole September 10, 2019

Mirror Bound is a great sequel with magical moments and mesmerizing characters. It’s a sequel that is just as good as the first book, if not better. Sera’s growth in this book is fantastic; she doesn’t just grow as a person, but also grows in using and understanding her magic. It was really nice... ...more

All Seraphina wants is to be a inspector, but she has to be accepted to take the exam and people are working to keep that from happening. Thankfully she has allies that are on her side, but its still a journey.

It's been a little over a year since I read SEVENTH BORN, and I was scared that I woul... ...more

This is the first time in reading this author with her story intriguing me. It had me as soon as it said seventh born which has always intrigued me. This is also in a genre I do not find often anymore that can pick my interest unless they are a go to author.
This story turned out to be very refre... ...more
