Summary from Goodreads:

Sometimes you find home, sometimes it comes looking for you.

Callie knows a lot more about pain than she does about family. She’s never belonged, at least, not until she falls through a portal into her true home. The beautiful faerie city of Eirensae doesn’t come free. Callie must find her amulet and bind herself to the city, and most importantly, avoid the Fallen fae who seek her life. Seems like a small price to pay for the family she’s always wanted.

Then she meets cynical and gorgeous Rowan, who reads the darkness of her past in her eyes. He becomes Callie’s part-time protector and full-time pain in the ass. He has secrets of his own for Callie to unravel. What they don’t know is that the future of Eirensae lies with them, and the once peaceful city is about to become a battleground for power.

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!


A great start to a new fantasy series. Callie has never felt like she belonged, and when she  accidentally falls into a magical pond she finds out why. We follow Callie as she is dropped - literally - into a new world, new friends, new abilities. It's hard and scary and confusing but Callie does her best to meet the challenges she faces. While we learn quite a bit about Callie there is still a lot we don't know about her and her past.

Of course there are boys - brooding warrior Rowan and sweet teacher Ash. Rowan is definitely the more interesting character, he's an outsider who keeps his distance but there is something that draws him to Callie. I liked Callie and Rowan together, they're both stubborn, determined, searching for a place to belong.

And there's action, Callie attracts trouble like a magnet. There are people who want to use her and people who want to kill her but Callie has Rowan and some awesome abilities so it isn't easy.

Reflection Pond ends with a lot of destinies still up in the air and many unanswered questions, making me eager to find out what happens next.
