Book Review: A Mirror Among Shattered Glass by Romarin Demetri




A Mirror Among Shattered Glass (The Supernatural London Underground, #1) 
by Romarin Demetri
Genre: New Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy)
Date Published: June 4, 2016
Publisher: Self

Unable to contain the deadly nature of her family secret and powers, nine-teen year old Romarin Demetri hails from California, U.S.A, to unearth her heritage as a descendant of serial-killer, Countess Bathory, the woman that lent Dracula his legend, and cursed Romarin with an appetite for blood. 

Unenthusiastic about relocating to her birth city of London, a charming paranormal investigator with claim to the throne could change her mind, as he leads her to the only living and distant relative she has: a raven-haired recluse named Talia, who has taken refuge in an old castle in the heart of the city, and doesn’t seem to have a heart of her own. 

After a rough introduction to the lethal, inappropriate, and enchantingly sarcastic people she calls her housemates, perhaps the other misfits will be her first true friends; However, as much as these people are like her, they still have hidden vendettas, a taste for revenge, and will struggle between what is just, and what will settle their psychological upheaval. There is only one way for Romarin to become part of the Supernatural London Underground: Can she be the one who challenges them to put down their ghosts and demons and make their world together?

A Mirror Among Shattered Glass is the first book in the The Supernatural London Underground by Romarin Demetri. The main character's name is also Romarin Demetri. It is told from multiple point of views. Romarin's point of view is the only one told in first person. Each character has some kind of something going on in their lives. We get parts of some of their histories. I'm still not sure what the overall conflict/issue is that was supposed to form the plot. What are they all working towards besides their own little separate issues? What was I supposed to be following? The potential is here for a great story, but I feel like I missed something. Or maybe a few somethings.

The ARC of A Mirror Among Shattered Glass by Romarin Demetri was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
