Overview

Ophelia and Thorn arrive at the observatory of the Deviations, an institute shrouded in absolute secrecy and overseen by a sect of mystical scientists who secretly conduct terrifying experiments. There, they hope to discover truths that will halt the destruction and death and bring the world back into balance. Now that the distrust between them has been overcome, they love each other passionately. However, they must keep their love hidden. Only in this way can they continue their journey toward an understanding of the indecipherable code of God and the truth behind the mysterious figure of the Other, whose devastating power continues to bring down entire pieces of arks, plunging thousands of innocents into the void.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The Mirror Visitor stands on the same shelf as Harry Potter.”—ELLE Magazine

“Spectacular settings, exquisitely rendered characters.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“As mesmerizing as a waking dream.”—Margaret Rogerson, New York Times Best-selling author of An Enchantment of Ravens

“Imagine the poisonous politics of Versailles in a glittering, steampunk world of quill pens, airships, masks, illusions and murderous courtiers.”—The Wall Street Journal

“The Storm of Echoes is the final instalment in Christelle Dabos’ Mirror Visitor series of four utterly extraordinary books. This series is probably the strangest, most compelling, frustrating, and addictive. From the first page of the first book, Dabos plunges the reader into an utterly hallucinogenic world where you can’t quite believe what you’re reading. It takes a while to learn it, but once you do, things start to make an illogical sense.”—Quare Living

“Pulse-pounding suspense, memorable characters, rival clans and elaborate political arrangements rooted in myth.”—The Buffalo News

“Looping wildly through revelatory sequences, the twisting narrative keeps readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. Dabos’ final installment offers a chilling but simultaneously euphoric experience.”—The Daily Californian

“A series that is nothing like any YA book series on the shelves today. Ophelia is the type of character I love to read about: great at some things, terrible at others, brave at times, cowardly at times, brilliant at times, and frustrating at other times. I could read about her all day.”—Barnes & Noble Review

“Your next YA obsession.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Metaphysical mystery, compellingly in the wings for most of the series, takes center stage in the quartet’s final installment. Political intrigue gracefully pivots to fraught introspection and identity turmoil, and the inertia of over 500 pages is easily overcome by the continued thrill of treachery and momentum of answers finally revealed.”—Kirkus Reviews

Gr 9 Up—Arks are falling as the world collapses, entire villages disappearing into the void. To try and stop the destruction, Ophelia and Thorn must discover the secrets of Babel's Deviations Observatory. But what should have been a straightforward mission tangles Ophelia up in the power of God, the nature of the Other, and a plan centuries in the making. A series founded on political intrigue and romance has made a hard pivot into the nature of identity, agency, and sacrifice as these characters fight for their happy ending. VERDICT This award-winning French fantasy series went viral on TikTok during the pandemic and its American readers finally have the epic conclusion. Readers might have to sit with this finale to appreciate its metaphysical possibilities.

With the world barreling to its end, Ophelia finds herself back at the beginning.

What’s left of the world is falling apart—literally. Unexplained sinkholes and landslides are eating away at the arks at random, with whole communities falling into the void, and all of it might be Ophelia’s fault. After their investigation at the Memorial, Ophelia and Thorn believe the key to undoing what God and the Other set in motion centuries ago and to halting the current destruction lies in Babel’s Deviations Observatory. With a supposedly straightforward mission of studying and correcting aberrations, the observatory’s secrets are nonetheless impenetrable even to Babel’s highest authorities, meaning they must be accessed from the inside. But when Ophelia is accepted into the Alternative Program and discovers the observatory’s interest in the possibility of phenomena called echoes to re-create God’s power, she finds that disrupting the ripple effect of God’s choices and repairing the world may require destroying herself. Metaphysical mystery, compellingly in the wings for most of the series, takes center stage in the quartet’s final installment. Political intrigue gracefully pivots to fraught introspection and identity turmoil, and the inertia of over 500 pages is easily overcome by the continued thrill of treachery and momentum of answers finally revealed. The focus on certain aspects of (meta)physical disability among the observatory’s participants yields some necessary nuance, but overall, disabled and non-White representation remain a series miss.

A cataclysmic conclusion. (Fantasy. 14-adult)
