Europa Editions. (The Mirror Visitor Quartet: Bk. 4). Oct. 2021. 528p. Tr $20. ISBN 9781609456979.
Gr 9 Up–Arks are falling as the world collapses, entire villages disappearing into the void. To try and stop the destruction, Ophelia and Thorn must discover the secrets of Babel’s Deviations Observatory. But what should have been a straightforward mission tangles Ophelia up in the power of God, the nature of the Other, and a plan centuries in the making. A series founded on political intrigue and romance has made a hard pivot into the nature of identity, agency, and sacrifice as these characters fight for their happy ending.
VERDICT This award-winning French fantasy series went viral on TikTok during the pandemic and its American readers finally have the epic conclusion. Readers might have to sit with this finale to appreciate its metaphysical possibilities.
