Dark reflections and fleeting images of a magical underworld color this fantasy set in medieval Venice. Two young teenaged orphans become apprenticed to a maker of magic mirrors and discover that the ancient city of canals is in desperate danger from attacking Egyptian forces. Reader Toby Longworth invigorates this peculiar tale with the kindly, wise tones of the elderly mirror maker, as well as the unsettling yet protective voice of a resident mermaid. Longworth shines in his portrayal of apprentice Merle, who possesses an innate but naive understanding of magic, as she teams with magical mermaids in a quest to save the famous city.
