Bryan Davis has flipped from fantasy to suspense fiction. I bought this book because I loved all of Bryan's other works (Dragons In Our Midst, Oracles Of Fire), and I was not disappointed in his new series. His account of Nathan and the mystery surrounding his family will keep you reading til late into the night. Amazing and highly recommended read.
God bless Bryan Davis!
Amazing Book!| Posted May 13, 2008
Echoes from the Edge is yet another outstanding book by bestselling author Bryan Davis. The way all of Mr. Davis's books are written with such intricacy and depth never ceases to amaze me. From the very first page the reader in plunged into excitement with Nathan, the main character who is left orphaned with just a strange mirror that sees thing that are not really there and his tutor, Clara. For an musician like me, this book is wonderful because the way the author blends music and the different dimensions in wonderfully written. The way Nathan felt whenever he played his violin, is exactly how I feel whenever I play my piano, to glorify God. It is also a great ministry tool, to give an friend who is not Christian. This book contains excitement, drama, friendship, love, loyalty, and a wonderful message. I highly recommend this book to anyone! Bravissimo, Mr. Davis for yet another fine piece of literature!

Beyond the Reflection's Edge is a literary roller coaster that never slowed down. I loved every minute of it. I don't think I will be able to find a book of this caliber anywhere else among the genre. Bryan Davis did a masterful job and I will be eagerly awaiting the sequel.
Impelling.| Posted April 09, 2008
After reading Dragons in our Midst and the beginning of the Oracles of Fire series, I confess I wasn't sure what to expect from this new book that did not promise fantastical adventures with knights and dragons. Despite my initial doubts, I am relieved to report that Bryan Davis' latest did not disappoint. On the contrary, I *almost* liked it better.
Unlike many authors today who tend to borrow ideas and themes from other authors, often resulting in an overused and predictable storyline, Bryan Davis has once again proved himself a rebel against this popular trend. Not only has he threaded together a completely original story with believable characters, he has not neglected to weave in refreshing truths and impelling ideas that add unique depth and emotion throughout.
"Beyond the Refections Edge" is edgy, exhilarant, and enthralling; a showcase of extraoridinary talent.
Check it out!
