    1. The third and final book in the Dark Reflections trilogy was satisfactory but not as spectacular as the first two books.The plot thickens, the stakes are high than ever and the probabilty that the whole cast will survive is than low Still, I wasn t as captivated by the story as I was before Somewhere along the lines I grew impatient and wanted it to end Maybe there were too many POV s, too many things happening at once I can t say what it was exactly but it lost a part of its magic.Still, it wa [...]



    2. Not good enough ending Something strange happened during the intervening time I read and finished this series I grew impatient with it and it lost most of its magic.


    3. I really do not like this trilogy trend that is taking place in the Young Adult writing world The first book of this series was wonderful It was such an interesting concept.I couldn t wait to read the second, which was okay The second book felt like a placeholder here s what everyone is doing while I make you wait to read my super awesome climatic ending Well, I didn t find the third super awesome, nor climatic To be honest, it was a bit of a let down Serafin sacrifices himself for Merle and the [...]


    4. Wow So, Meyer wasn t kidding around with that Dark Reflections business There s dark There s definitely dark And ye gods are there reflections Mirror hardly looks like a word to me any.Thinking positive, the world is still awesome Great critters and magic and stuff, and I kind of like that the rise of various great civilizations is due to their catching Summer and harnessing her power And there are some neat little scenes, like the whole chapter where the world is recovering from the Egyptian ru [...]


    5. ich wei nicht mal genau, was mir nicht so richtig gefallen hatdie Story und die Wesen waren ganz okay, die Charaktere eher so mehich freu mich aber auf das Wolkenvolk, das fehlt mir n mlich noch von Kai Meyer und bisher konnten mich fast alle seine Werke zumindest viel mehr als dieses hier berzeugen


    6. This definitely reminds me of His Dark Materials, but even better I could not put it down The descriptions, the fantasies, the characters just drew me in Meyer has some great, original ideas The great conclusion to a great series.Indeed, the back of the book promised a great battle at the end, and even though it was expected, it was also shocking Oh my God I can t believe SPOILER ALERT Serafin freakin died It put me in tears I love the whit and whimsy of these ideas, especially with Winter and S [...]



    7. Translated by Anthea Bell.Opening ICE AND TEARSThe Pyramid rose above deep snow All around them, the Egyptian desert lay buried under the cloak of a New Ice Age Very exciting trilogy this Starts off in Venice, visits hell and a winter ravaged Egypt 1 The Flowing Queen 2 The Stone Light 3 The Glass Word




    8. This part was better than the last one the beginning was a little slow and then suddenly a lot of questions were answered in one chapter Personally I enjoyed the book, though a lot of questions are still open for me I don t know if this series continues though I still miss some information Even though this is the case, I did enjoy the world Kai Meyer created here.



    9. Nachdem ich die ersten beiden B nde der Merle Trilogie noch als H rbuch geh rt habe, habe ich mir den letzten Band als Hardcover Ausgabe geg nnt, um zu erfahren, wie es mit Merle, Junipa und Co weitergeht Schade, dass dies bereits der letzte Band ist, denn ich w rde am liebsten noch viel mehr ber Merle erfahren.Kai Meyer konnte mich mit seinem Schreibstil wieder einmal begeistern Der Autor beschreibt s mtliche Ortschaften sehr detailliert, sodass ich mir nahezu alles bildlich vorstellen konnte D [...]


    10. Reviewed by Carrie Spellman for TeensReadTooNOTE This is the third book in a trilogy, just in case you were unaware, and if you can make sense of this story without having read the first two You re either amazing or scary Merle, Vermithrax, Junipa, and, of course, the Flowing Queen, have just barely escaped Hell and Lord Light with their lives Although none of them is, or will ever be, quite the same Thanks to the stone light, Vermithrax has turned from regular stone to a nearly impenetrable obs [...]


    11. I was quite disappointed in the third book in the trilogy The first was outstanding, the second was good, but this last one was not good Sure, I ve read worse, but I ve read Kai Meyer at the top of his game, and this book was not the cream of the crop All the secrets that we d been waiting to learn about Merle s Mother, The Flowing Queen s business with Merle, Burbridge s importance to the story, Winter s quest for his love were resolved rather suddenly There was no build up.Where s Summer In a [...]


    12. The ending Was so beautiful I just I can definitely see why this trilogy draws comparisons with His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman And I think that while this is a huge, hee yoo ge compliment, it s also kind of a drawback because His Dark Materials is infinitely deeper Not that Dark Reflections is bad, on the contrary There were some genuinely beautiful ideas explored here the mirrors, the mermaids, the phantoms, but ultimately I felt that the world building in Dark Reflections wasn t as eloqu [...]


    13. What I Liked All of the individual story lines make sense now And I do mean all of them What this tale ended up being, once you cut through all of the weird world building, was a mystery A who done it and why puzzle full of misdirection and interesting twists On the whole, I loved the continuing creativity and I enjoyed how it all wrapped up in ways I did not expect Despite being YA, there was not a sappy, feel good ending either It was bittersweet, partially tragic but true to the story.What I [...]


    14. I was quite pleased with the ending of this trilogy While I think the landslide of plot related happenings that happened in this last book could have been shared with the second book, overall it was very well done Seriously, this book was shorter than the second, but I feel that way was happening However, every story line was wrapped up, even if a few details seemed like they were missing along the way Serafin doesn t really receive that much in the way of character development so it is hard to [...]


    15. This is clearly the best of the three as often happens with the third in a trilogy Many of the details about the characters were being held until this novel as trump cards to add to the drama that plays out through the story As a result, the characters convey better depth and their motives become complex, creating a stronger sense of empathy with the audience Even the writing itself has become stronger with greater aesthetic details, poetic language, and variance in sentence complexity As for t [...]


    16. Wenn man die ersten Teile gelesen hat, und zumindest nciht schlecht fand, sollte man diesen hier auch lesen Die Story erreicht ihren H hepunkt und so macher Charakter konnte mich noch berraschen Zudem werden endlich alle Geheimnisse und Fragen der ersten beiden Teile beantwortet.Ich bin allerdings nicht sicher was ich vom Ende halten soll view spoiler Pers nlcih fand ich es nicht so toll Es sterben die falschen Charaktere er hat einfach Serafin sterben lassen Das hat f r mcih das Ende ziemlcih r [...]


    17. The conclusion to Kai Meyer s Dark Reflections series, The Glass Word wraps up the story of Merle, Serafin, and Junipa as they escape from a hell like underworld only to find the Egyptian desert buried in snow The book is full of the interesting mix of mythology and adventure that characterized the previous two installments Fans of authors Rick Riordan and Meredith Pierce will most certainly enjoy this series The Glass Word becomes confusing at its long, drawn out, and somewhat anticlimactic end [...]


    18. this was the very first series of Kai Meyer books I bought back then when I was a child it takes the reader on an imaginary journey that makes it impossible to take away the book just for one minute few years later I m sitting here and I can doubtlessly say that this book hasn t lost any of its magic on me the same girl just a few years older sitting on her bed although its far past midnight and shedding the one or another tear about the tragic end while she is closing the last and final of the [...]


    19. Der letzte atemberaubende Teil der Merle Trilogie findet mit Das Gl serne Wort sein Ende Die Flie ende K nigin sowie Das Steinerne Licht waren die Anf nge und der Mittelteil der Merletrilogie und nun ist es doch soweit gekommen das diese Geschichte, auch ihr Ende findet, und das mit einem kr nenden Abschluss und einer gro en Menge an Fantasie Ich kann direkt schreiben das ich dieses Buch sehr gelungen finde und sehr viel Spa hatte es zu lesen Leider ist nun wieder eine Reihe abgeschlossen und so [...]


    20. Good way to end a trilogy Did not inspire in me quite the same sense of wonder as the first two books The things we learned about Merle s background were not surprising, though they were unexpected view spoiler Likewise the ending I m still not sure if I approve of what Serafin did As a reader, I am glad that Merle lived, since she was THE viewpoint character, but at the end he took the choice from her and I don t know how I feel about that I will say, though, that Merle s grief was conveyed wit [...]


    21. This is the third book in the Dark Reflections trilogy Merle, with Junipa and Vermithrax, who survived his encounter with the Stone Light are escaping Lord Light and are in hot pursuit of Seth, the former high priest to the Pharoah Merle is unsure of who she can trust and it weighs on her heavily Separately, Serafin, the sphinx Lalapeya, the former mermaid Eft and the other thieves are headed to Egypt on a pirate submarine When they reach Egypt, Winter has arrived They converge on the Iron Eye f [...]


    22. DARN WHY That question keeps popping up in my mind WHY no spoilers, i know I ll try to be as careful as I can Okay inhale exhale The thrill was never absent This book might be my favorite one, compared to the first and second I m not saying that first and second book was boring It s just this one is interesting and intensifying.I can t not won t because I literally can t say I hate it because something UNTHINKABLE happened, I LOVE it instead despite that that incident sigh The plot was really g [...]


    23. For what started as such a promising first book, I was really disappointed with how this all turned out Not so much the story, because the story remained good, though it did make an odd leap at the end But what I really enjoyed about the first book was how deeply it made me think about ordinary things, and the existential questions it was raising In The Glass Word, Meyer does what I hate YA authors doing, which is that he hands you conclusions constantly instead of letting you figure things out [...]


    24. Wow, I was not expecting this when I started reading a YA trilogy Who knew that I would become so caught up in the farflung adventures of Merle who is trying to save her city from an invasion Heartbreaking choices had to be made, and as I read this on a plane ride, I was echoing poor Junipa, agh Indeed, is this a YA novel They mention at the end that this isn t how it ends in fairytales Gah Almost reduce me to tears will you This trilogy reminded me of His Dark Materials, also with a young heroi [...]


    25. OPS a pesar de que dije que el primero es mi favorito, tengo que decir que este es complicado Veo que todos los reviews difieren entre el amor y el odio, y quienes lean la saga sabr n entender S lo decir que eviten los spoilers porque si no, el libro no tendr el efecto necesario En su momento me pareci una porquer a de libro, pero supongo que ser porque yo quer a otro fianl, no me gust el desenlace Pero con el tiempo, se aprecia y la verdad, tengo que decir, es un excelente final EXCELENTE JK RO [...]
