Inhaltsangabe: A fantasy adventure story - what happens when Julia finds herself on the other side of her bedroom mirror, in a strange, beautiful, but also frightening world of glass.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6-8 A story that is set in an underground world of glittering, gleaming glass with narrow passageways, chasms, cliffs and ravines; a desolate place ruled by Quorgrun, who wants to be its only inhabitant. Because of a piece of yellow crystal she added to her rock collection, Julia is drawn into this world through her mirror, her ``gate of glass.'' Quorgrun leads her to his chamber and entreats her to locate the three missing pieces of crystal, needed to make his crystal orb whole and restore his evil powers. There is much to like in this book, beginning with the characters: Julia, a shy, winsome youngster with untapped strength; Quorgrun, the malevolent wizard; and unusual creatures, such as huge butterflies and sheppals, nicely balanced by Julia's solid, working-class British parents. The adventure moves at a good clip, maintaining reader interest and hope that the wicked Quorgrun will not succeed in his goal of decimating all life in his world of glass. A good beginning fantasy book that ``follows the rules,'' with its required quest, triumph of good over evil, and unusual surroundings. Pam Spencer, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Fairfax County, Va.
