Today I’m shining the Spooktacular Spotlight on Wooldridge’s Dark Fairytale Retelling, Mirror of Hearts!
Roger Hunter has served the Lady White for longer than his life span should have allowed, at a cost higher than his conscience should have allowed, yet he has only questioned orders once, a long time ago.
The one time he decided to listen to his own heart.
And it wasn’t enough to break the spell he submitted to: The power of another heart’s song.
Now, his heart is drawn to the lovely Melody Devonshire, Lady White’s orphaned niece, but will the whispers of love be loud enough to overcome the call of power over life, itself?
Or must another heart be sacrificed before Roger can see his true destiny?
