    Three different earths, three different dimensions, each spiraling out of control as the weave that holds the dimensions begins to crumble. With Beyond the Reflection’s Edge, Bryan Davis has penned a tale that readers of his previous works couldn’t have anticipated. Starting out fast, the book never slows down until the last turn of the page. A worthy read for all lovers of science fiction and contemporary fantasy.

    When I finished reading Beyond the Reflection’s Edge the first time, I was blown away by the intricacies of the plot and characters. All I can say is “Wow.”

    Sixteen-year-old Nathan Shepherd has an unusual life traveling the world with his investigator father, his world-renowned violinist mother, and his personal tutor. Something goes wrong at a concert in Chicago that results in the death of his parents. Nathan moves to a small town to live with a childhood friend of his father’s and his teenage daughter Kelly. He takes little with him: his mother’s violin and the Quattro mirror his father had insisted he keep safe.

    As Nathan tries to adapt to his new life, he discovers that his small mirror is the missing piece of a wall-sized mirror in his new bedroom. Once the mirror is whole, Nathan stumbles onto a mystery. The mirror shows him things. But are they his dreams? the future? or a different world? Could his parents still be alive? Nathan and Kelly must work together to figure it all out.

    Wow. This was a completely unexpected and unique story. I’ve read a few books before that deal with different dimensions, and although this one did get a bit confusing, it was much easier to understand for this non-science girl. I liked Nathan’s character a lot. This world needs a lot more “perfect gentlemen.” I also really enjoyed how the plot kept unfolding. I sort of saw the ending coming, but I didn’t know how Bryan Davis was going to get us there. Overall, this was a really entertaining, fast-paced story. My kind of book. My kind of unique plot. My kind of story. Highly recommended.

    I really tried to like this book. However, I found it very hard to follow, with the multiple changing characters, and jumping from place to place. I had to draw a diagram to keep the good guys and the bad guys straight. I did finish the book and was very disappointed with an ending that left too many unanswered questions. I found the main character a little “too good to be true”, at one point in the story he asks himself if he can overcome the “past” of the female lead. The only past mentioned was that the girl made the mistake of wearing a low-cut dress and liked the attention it brought. A little unrealistic for this day and age.

    That being said I did enjoy the Christian ideals set forth by Nathan and his parents, and the beautiful language used to describe God’s beauty in the world.

    Yesterday afternoon, when I decided to get ahead by reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Most of the reviews I had read so far were brief and all stating the wonders of this book and this author in general. The first chapter was a little odd and I was a little confused. But as I read more, more was able to sink in and I was able to understand what was going on.

    This is one of those books that I could not get my eyes to travel fast enough to find out what was coming next. There we…more Yesterday afternoon, when I decided to get ahead by reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Most of the reviews I had read so far were brief and all stating the wonders of this book and this author in general. The first chapter was a little odd and I was a little confused. But as I read more, more was able to sink in and I was able to understand what was going on.

    This is one of those books that I could not get my eyes to travel fast enough to find out what was coming next. There were times when I had to go back and re-read a passage, just because it was too much. I’ve never been much of a fiction sci-fi person outside of TV shows and movies, but this was better than any TV show and any movie that I have ever seen.

    There was spy action, there was holistic attitudes, and morals! Suspense and thrilling twists… An under lying message, and even just plain good human interaction and relationships of people to each other.

    I’m extremely glad that I have now been introduced into the works of Bryan Davis and I must say that I’m excited for more. I especially cannot wait until this fall when book two comes out Eternity’s Edge!

    I stumbled upon this book in the Kindle store as a free promotion. Since I am a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan I figured I’d give it a try. As a 34 year old mother I was a little hesitant, wondering if I’d relate to a young adult book. Well…let’s just say my only complaint was that I stayed up way to late on too many nights because I couldn’t put it down. I had no trouble following the characters from Earth Red, Yellow and Blue. I thought the characters were refreshingly honest in their struggles and I admired the dedication to purity in a world (or worlds-LOL)where the concept seems foreign. I read all 3 books and loved every minute. The music and dance analogies/metaphors were so powerful and I am looking forward to reading all the authors other books. If only they were on Kindle already…..
