Goodreads Synopsis:

 Jake's father disappears while working on mysterious experiments with the obsessive, reclusive Oberon Venn. Jake is convinced Venn has murdered him. But the truth he finds at the snow-bound Wintercombe Abbey is far stranger ... The experiments concerned a black mirror, which is a portal to both the past and the future. Venn is not alone in wanting to use its powers. Strangers begin gathering in and around Venn's estate: Sarah - a runaway, who appears out of nowhere and is clearly not what she says, Maskelyne - who claims the mirror was stolen from him in some past century. There are others, a product of the mirror's power to twist time. And a tribe of elemental beings surround this isolated estate, fey, cold, untrustworthy, and filled with hate for humans. But of them all, Jake is hell-bent on using the mirror to get to the truth. Whatever the cost, he must learn what really happened to his father.

Author Interview:  Catherine Fisher

Tell us a little bit about yourself...
I live in Wales and like to write, draw and walk in the woods. That's about it really.

What inspired you to want to become a writer?
Reading fantasy novels by writers like Alan Garner and Tolkien. Also reading poetry, because I began by writing poetry.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
The Obsidian Mirror will beguile and entertain you, I hope.

Alice in Wonderland, The Mabinogi, The Hill of Dreams, Treasure Island, The Owl Service, the Lord of the Rings, and a lot more.

If you could travel back in time to a certain event in history, what would it be?
The building of Stonehenge- the phase when the sarsen stones were erected. I find the Neolithic a fascinating age.

Favourite fictional character?
That's very difficult. Sherlock Holmes?

I really enjoy reading the author interviews in blog tours. I especially enjoyed this interview as Catherine Fisher and I share a lot of things in common; both live in Wales, I love fantasy especially Tolkien and also love The Mabinogi. So really enjoyed reading this one! Also the giveaway isn't a bad extra :P haha!
