A Shadow on the Glass was published in 1998 by Penguin Books.

The Way Between the Worlds. In the Three Worlds Cycle, there are naturally Three Worlds. These Three Worlds are separated by the Void, a place of incredible ferocity and violence.

With this stunning and original debut, Ian Irvine begins the saga of The View from the Mirror, a brilliant epic fantasy that rivals the works of Robert Jordan and J. V. Jones. "Once there were three worlds, each with its own human race. Then, fleeing from out of the void came a fourth race, the Charon. Desperate, on the edge of extinction, they changed the balance between the worlds forever..." The Tale of the Forbidding In ancient times the Way Between the Worlds was shattered, leaving bands of Aachim, Faellem, and Charon trapped with the old humans of Santhenar. Now Llian, a Chronicler of the Great Tales, uncovers a 3,000-year-old secret too deadly to be revealed-while Karan, a young sensitive, is compelled by honor to undertake a perilous mission. Neither can imagine they will soon meet as hunted fugitives, snared in the machinations of immortals, the vengeance of warlords, and the magics of powerful mancers. For the swelling deluge of a millennial war is rising, terrible as a tsunami, ready to cast torrents of sorcery and devastation across the land...
  • If you like vast worlds - intricate story lines - conflicting priorities - flawed heroes - then you will love these books. I am a huge fan of this series - not because I'm an Aussie - but because the author builds a world of complexity and delight that few writers achieve.
    Ian Irvine creates realistic scenarios for "why" things happen - yes there are goodies and baddies, this is the genre ... but the baddies have good reasons for their actions ... and sometimes the goodies ... well ... aren't always good. So in others words this is not a world where everything is Right or Wrong - Black or White as a hue of grey colours many of the characters - which is what makes them believable. Very much a study in human studies. It is easy to "imagine" yourself as a great warrior ... easier still to "connect" with characters showing the desires and flaws you see around you every day.
    There are many great fantasy books - I hope you will rate these amongst yours.

  • A Shadow on the Glass (Kindle ed) began slowly, but grew into obsession as I continued.
    Overlooking apparent editing issues (as though occasional German particles were dropped into the text!), I read of Maigraith, Karan, Llian, & Yggur, & his opponents.
    This is a tale of the madness of power, the beauty of words, how fulfilling an oath may not be the path of honor & how the inept may truly save the world.
    It is powerful... having kept me up all night, then disturbing my sleep until I could return.
    Excellent book.

  • Depending on the reader this is a three to a five star book. Almost every character has a secondary story, but the book really just did not grab me.

    Read a sample. If you like it, the rest of the book will deliver exactly what the sample offers.

  • I love A Shadow on the Glass because there are no elves. No Orcs or Dwarves either. A great story with races we've never seen before.

    The only bad part is that the book is rife with typos. I read the original in paperback years ago and it didn't have any of those issues. It looks like the book was scanned and here and there a word was scanned wrong. Pretty sloppy work.

  • I read this book years ago and loved it. I still do. I have one problem with the kindle version though. I wanted to reread it but left my paper copy in another state so I decided to purchase the kindle version. Almost immediately I noticed some strange typos. Whatever software they are using to scan the text and convert it for kindle has a problem. There are frequent typos throughout the book. They are very distracting. I have noticed many cases where 'that' appears as 'mat', 'the' as 'die' etc.It isn't just with small words like those. Punctuation is missing, random letters are missing from words. Someone really should have read through this before they put it up on Amazon.

    Other than that it's a good book that I'd recommend to anyone who loves a good story.

  • at first i was not sure but as it played we are joying it very much

  • i recommend this book to anyone with a good imagination. this series is one of my favorites.
