The Lady of the Mirrored Lake – Jennifer Ivy Walker


Hunted by the Black Widow Queen, Issylte–a healer with the verdant magic of the forest–must flee Avalon with the two finest knights in the Celtic realm, both wrongly accused of treason. The trio travels to Bretagne, where Issylte heals a critically injured wolf and obtains fiercely loyal, shapeshifting allies.

In mystical Brocéliande, Issylte becomes a warrior priestess of the Tribe of Dana and otherworldly mate of the Blue Knight of Cornwall, discovering with Tristan a passion that transcends all bounds. When she becomes the Lady of the Mirrored Lake, sworn to defend the sacred waters of the Goddess, Issylte must undertake a perilous quest to discover what priceless object lies hidden in its murky depths.

As a nascent evil emerges in a fetid cave, Issylte and Tristan must face a diabolical trio that threatens their lives, their love, and their kingdoms.

Enchanted. Enflamed. Entwined. Can their passion and power prevail?

My Review:

The Lady of the Mirrored Lake is Book 2 of the paranormal romance trilogy by Jennifer Ivy Walker.

Issylte must leave here Irish homeland to save her life after it is clear her stepmother, Queen Morag, is determined to kill her. Escaping with Sir Lancelot and his protégé, Sir Tristan just in the nick of time, they team up to save their homelands from Viking invasions and the evil queen and her dark guard, Lord Morholt.

After reading Book 1 (I’d suggest starting with The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven), I couldn’t wait to delve into the second installment, and I wasn’t disappointed. While I’m a huge fan of paranormal fantasy, Ms. Walker went above and beyond my expectations.

The story involves a romance between the pair, but the reader will find plenty of excitement and danger from other sources such as evil dwarves and wizards. Arthurian mythology and plenty of magical herbs and healing move the story along at just the right pace.

The characters, description, and storyline, along with the author’s descriptive writing, will keep the reader wanting more. I know I do! Highly recommended.

I received an advanced review copy of this book, however, my review is unbiased.

About the Author

Enthralled with legends of medieval knights and ladies, dark fairy tales and fantasies about Druids, wizards and magic, Jennifer Ivy Walker always dreamed of becoming a writer. She fell in love with French in junior high school, continuing her study of the language throughout college, eventually becoming a high school teacher and college professor of French.

As a high school teacher, she took her students every year to the annual French competition, where they performed a play she had written, “Yseult la Belle et Tristan la Bête”–an imaginative blend of the medieval French legend of “Tristan et Yseult” and the fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast”, enhanced with fantasy elements of a Celtic fairy and a wicked witch.

Her debut novel, “The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven”–the first of a trilogy– is a blend of her love for medieval legends, the romantic French language, and paranormal fantasy. It is a retelling of the medieval French romance of “Tristan et Yseult”, interwoven with Arthurian myth, dark fairy tales from the enchanted Forest of Brocéliande, and otherworldly elements such as Avalonian Elves, Druids, forest fairies and magic.
