The Singular & Extraordinary Tale of Mirror & Goliath – Ishbelle Bee ★★★★

Blurb; 1888. A little girl called Mirror and her shape-shifting guardian Goliath Honeyflower are washed up on the shores of Victorian England. Something has been wrong with Mirror since the day her grandfather locked her inside a mysterious clock that was painted all over with ladybirds. Mirror does not know what she is, but she knows she is no longer human.

John Loveheart, meanwhile, was not born wicked. But after the sinister death of his parents, he was taken by Mr. Fingers, the demon lord of the underworld. Some say he is mad. John would be inclined to agree.

Now Mr Fingers is determined to find the little girl called Mirror, whose flesh he intends to eat, and whose soul is the key to his eternal reign. And John Loveheart has been called by his otherworldly father to help him track Mirror down…

My Review; This is another off the library pile and I picked this up purely because of the cover, it is eye catching and absolutely gorgeous. The story was brilliant! An easy read. A wierd read, but I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it all. The ending was different and wierd but suited the story perfectly.

There are many unique characters in this story and some were just one of a kind, wierd, absurd and twisted. You need an imagination to read this story as this will just blow your mind. I cannot wait to read the next one by this author which also has a gorgeous cover. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something wierd and different. A well deserved four stars from me.
