Encorr Wishstone, a 17-year-old genie but with round ears, encounters a mysterious death in the Genies’ State Bottle Race, followed by her father’s sudden disappearance. She then is guided into a flying Bottle by an unknown person with a bathtub of fluorescent liquid... What she uncovers sends shock waves through the magic world—the evilest wizard is alive, and she is not a genie at all. Caught in an accelerating tempest of secrecy and danger, Encorr battles to save the magic world with Harold. As more startling truth comes to light, she finds herself fighting not only for her folks but for her life, which sadly turns out at the sacrifice of her love... "Enthralling...Leng masterfully concocts an intelligent and lucid fantasy that marries the gusto of an murder mystery in the magic world with a collection of fascinating details culled from 100 years of magic history." "A dazzling performance, a delight display of the power of imagination."

Aug 17, 2009"A Rare Excellent Read" IN BETWEEN MIRRORS is a really good read for fun. I rank it as NO.1 in the shelves of fantasies.

Jun 12, 2009"★☆★A Real Genius★☆★" This book is a strong, mutilayered example of a hugely popular genre. It is fantasy and adventure, with a glimpse into a possible parallel reality of someone else’s imagining. But it is not a “fantasy” or “science fiction” novel; if we are looking for a category, then it falls into the attractive definition of “magical realism”. Within a “fantasy” structure, Rose Leng has in fact created a literary novel of character and situation. Rose writes with a hand that is both sure and light. The world in which her characters move, is logical within its inherent concept. It is in many ways not too far at all from the possibilities of our own time, and in other ways a metaphor for our own reality. A book such as this casts a little doubt on the accepted structures of reality; it is about memory and imagination. This is an adventure of the creative spirit; it holds together very well, there is a new twist and turn around every corner, and the excitement and... More > hence the interest, is maintained. A world, a universe, is logically developed. One gets the feeling that Rose had as much excitement writing this novel as the reader will in the reading, and the writing style is clear, logical and accurate. To this reviewer, a very welcome element of this good length novel is the fluid, easy, unaffected and original literary style, quite unlike much accepted contemporary writing, which Rose has developed. It is pleasing to find something special in a book, and this effective and personal use of language together with this good sense of character, situation and narrative advancement, all work well together to create in the reader the willing suspension of disbelief. That is the object of the creative writer since the first story teller unrolled his mat in the market square.< Less
Oct 3, 2008"WOW！！！" The word for IN BETWEEN MIRRORS is a rare invertible palindrome. Rotated 180 degrees on a horizontal axis so that it is upside down, it denotes the maternal essence that it sometimes linked to the sport of football. Read right side up, it concisely conveys the kind of extreme enthusiasm with which this riddle-filled, code-breaking, exhilaratingly brainy fantasy can be recommended. That word is WOW. The author is Rose Leng (a name you will want to remember). In this gleefully erudite fantastic novel, Ms. Leng fine-tunes her unique style to a blockbuster perfection. Not since the advent of Harry Potter has an author so flagrantly delighted in leading readers on a breathless chase and coaxing them through hoops...The book moves at a breakneck pace, with the author seeming thoroughly to enjoy her contrivances. Virtually every chapter ends with a cliffhanger.
Sep 21, 2008"Break a Leg with Your Fantasy, Rose!" I gave you a vote,Rose,because I love your story. It's pretty fantastic! Come on! I'm looking forward to reading your next one!
