When Juliette has a domestic servant beaten for pursuing a young man above her station, she finds herself cursed by a witch to live in a world behind her own mirror. She is unable to leave except on the first night of a full moon.

Juliette is forced to seek what food and shelter the new world provides with the help of a unicorn, a man who is half bear, and a centaur. Together they struggle to survive against lions, wolves, and the challenges of watching their friends live and die through the back of the mirror, as their own world, family and friends moves on without them.

Reflections begins in Regency era London, and ends in Clover Springs, California, an all but abandoned Gold Rush town.

A tale of love, friendship, and facing unavoidable challenges.

Review
3.5/5
Juliette was raised to never talk to those under her station. Whenever she did, her parents beat her. By the time she is older, she is an insensitive rich girl. She gets her maid beat because she is jealous and mean. A witch than curses her.She is in a world nothing like her own. She has to figure out how to live. Scrounging around in this strange place with her new allies while she watches her old life through a mirror.
It was a good book. I was not fond of Juliette for a good portion of the book. I thought the story was interesting. I loved the characters that she met after she was cursed. They were different and really made a good story. I felt in some places it could have gone quicker, besides that a nice quick read.
