Rapunzel meets Jane Eyre in the epic conclusion of this fairy tale romance!

Grayson Eyre has left her old life behind. She’s no longer stuck serving Lady R, a sadistic Rapunzel from the Lowood clan of elves. Instead, Grayson now teaches at the Thornfield home for shifter orphans. Even better, her boss is none other than the sexy alpha, Dex. It’s all good until a mysterious witch, Jocasta, appears in a nearby tower, demanding that Dex and Grayson discover the true nature of all Rapunzels. If not, Lady R will return to claim Grayson… and Thornfield will be wiped out by the evil Prism Master. Can Dex and Grayson discover the truth in time? And what will it mean for their growing attraction?

Secrets are revealed and feelings explored in this epic conclusion to the story of Dex and Grayson!

Dex is blinded by Lady R and thrown into the woods. Luckily his shifter magic is still there so he can find his way back home. Grayson is free from Lady R and in search of a job and finds herself at Thornfield as a teacher for young pups. With Dax as her boss, they start to spend a lot of time together and get to know each other and the sparks just fly. :) 

But the mystery is still not solved. With Jocasta demanding that they find the true nature of Rapunzels. There is also a bit of a Jane Eyre template thrown into the mix. :) 

I just love Dax in Mirrors & Mysteries. Even though he is blind and the fate of his home depends on him finding his Vita, he is still so compassionate with her and patient. You can just feel his affection for her. 

Grayson is being thrown into a completely new environment. She is finally free, but the voice of Lady R is still in her head. It takes a lot of bravery for her to overcome it and believe in herself. I loved finding out about her heritage with her. 

It's the ninth book in the series, that I just love. Every few books there is a new romance and new magical template with a lot of new twists and turns. I loved reading it and couldn't put it down until the end. :) And now I can't wait for the next book. It's a quite short and quick read, but nonetheless totally awesome. :)

about the author

Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
