Synopsis:
Justin Wells has a less than perfect life. His parents have recently divorced and he is living with his dad, who does nothing but watch TV all day. They've moved into a house that is falling apart around them. Worst of all, he is attending a new high school, where everyone treats him like an outcast.

Things don't get any easier for him when he becomes interested in Sarah Ellis, girlfriend of all-star hockey player Brandon Tate, a quick-tempered bully who soon has it out for Justin.

Right when Justin is starting to make friends and his life is incrementally improving, an ancient and mysterious entity is unleashed on the sleepy New England town. After a few suspicious deaths, it becomes apparent that something is going on a killing spree.

…something that can only be seen in mirrors.

As the bodies start piling up around them, Justin and his new friends have to figure out how to stop this terrible force before it picks them off one by one.

Review: After reading Deadly Reflections, you will never look at mirrors the same way again. Justin Wells is the new kid in town - no friends, a junker for a car, a hovel for a home, and a father who does nothing but watch TV all day. Justin starts to make friends and falls for Sarah Ellis, the BMOC's ex-girlfriend. However, Sarah's ex-boyfriend has unleashed a never-ending evil over the town. A creature that has existed from time immemorial and lives in the mirror exacting terror. Now Justin and his friends have a short amount of time to figure out what the creature is and how to stop it before everyone in town ends up dead.

I was easily drawn into the world the author created in Deadly Reflections. The characters were very realistic of how "typical" high school kids act and I enjoyed the suspense. The evil was deliciously reminiscent of a Freddy Krueger, but with its' own set of rules and and a different sort of viciousness. Very engaging and I look forward to more of the author's work!
