It had good parts but not very many of them, it was a slow go but very interesting how everything worked out and the conclusion had me hooked so I will probab A very slow start for me, it took a long time for me to read because the storyline didn’t catch my interest or connect with me.
Once again, Mirage’s story captivated me wholeheartedly. Thanks for telling us about the problem. The society presented and the price of magic dopplganger make this an interesting fantasy tale, and Marie’s writing is smooth and draws you in to the setting and the characters nicely.
They seem to have their own hierarchy. It wasn’t an author’s version of “Western Europe.
I found that I could make no connection to the characters, they were flat and a bit boring, especially Miryo. Mirage recognizes him and calls him Kerestel. No trivia or quizzes yet.
On an unnamed continent unless I’m mistaken, witches and warriors with no magic live among each other. I think Brennan could have really created an exceptional story had she made it a little more fast paced. I don’t want to mention some of the other things I didn’t enjoy for fear of spoilers, but one thing I can say is that everything seems to end too nicely and people become friends too quickly.
She always gets her mark. Yes, we have swords and magic and horses and witchcraft. This is a good book. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I really enjoyed the world-building and the detailed religion the witches follow. I really enjoyed how they tried to work on it, and how much effort they put into trying to figure it out.
To control her powers and become a full witch, she must find her doppelganger, Mirage, and kill her. Mirage is a bounty hunter who has always survived by her wits and strength.
I’m not a religious person, but I always find myself intrigued by new takes on religion. Or how her doppelganger survived anyway!
I speed read this madie on the train and couldn’t put it down. Oh I need to go kill my other half to regain control of my magic?
Mirage is a strong woman, with a chip on her shoulder and something to prove. I’m actually annoyed by the presence of Eclipse, and while he is a supporting character, I don’t understand why no men like him have any magic in this world. But while some aspects were familiar, the book doesn’t feel like something I’ve read a thousand times before.
There was many aspects of this novel that I absolutely loved, and just a few that fell flat. This is a world of Brennan’s own creation, but its roots appear to be more Eastern in origin, which is refreshing. I rarely glance at these excerpts, but in this case, I immediately read it and wanted more.
Doppelganger (Brennan novel) – Wikipedia
I’m the type of person who asks “Why? Trivia About Warrior Doppelga Calling her a Witch is ill advised. The book includes a short preview of the sequel, Warrior and Witch. In order to rescue her powers and herself from certain destruction, she has been given one c Pros: I was completely lost to what any of it could mean until Mirage or Eclipse figured something out. Originally, I incautiously bought Doppelganger but not Warrior and Witch ; just before I finished Doppelganger, I had to make an emergency evening run to our local bookstore, which happily had Warrior and Witch on the shelf, so that I could gobble it up as soon I finished the first book.
How cool is that?! Jan 28, Liz rated it liked it Shelves: Not too soapy either for a fantasy novel. Naturally, Miryo’s mission to kill her double soon becomes far more complicated and messier than In brief: I would like to see more development for the characters in the following books.
This book had a very interesting premise. And for a mzrie, she seems alright with the idea. I always hesitated when I saw this book because the cover always seemed way too close to the teen vampire romance books, and with the second in the series being called Witch I was very wary. Mirage is a religious person, although not very zealous about it.
Meanwhile, Miryo is introduced in the story sitting on a roof and brdnnan over her future as a witch and what will happen if she fails the test she needs to pass to become a witch. The scene cuts to Eclipse, Mirage’s schoolmate at Silverfire, one of the numerous Hunter schools, walking through Chervie’s streets amidst a festival.
The Book Smugglers doppelganegr Red Room say: Eikyo helps Miryo decide what Path she will be in and without much conclusive results, Miryo goes back to her room to start a homework. Miryo gets nervous about failing, remembering a schoolmate Hinosuka who died as a result of the test. One soul, two separate people. A huge flaw, you’d think, yet somehow this didn’t truly detract from the novel. O I was really brenan that the world was so interesting to read about.
