Twin bothers, Jakob and Matthias, live in a monastery studying to become monks. Jakob however is influenced by temptations that surround him more easily than Matthias is. Jakob finds he would rather take pleasure in the things life offers over what is considered following the right path, as Matthias prefers. When Jakob meets Lord Gustav in town and brings him home, Matthias is thoroughly upset. But after the three spend some time together, Lord Gustav offers them the opportunity to travel with him to his home for the winter with the promises of warm rooms, good food and lots of books with which Matthias can fill his mind. With the offer to good to turn down, the twins travel with the Lord and are awed at his home when they arrive, as theyíve never seen anything so grand before.

Jakob is a happy go lucky sort of person who always has a smile and is ready for anything. Matthias is an uptight individual who is always looking for something wrong in everything he sees in life. Lord Gustav is a conniving individual who lusts after the twins. He wants to make them his own to love for all eternity and he knows he must win them BOTH over to make that happen.

Mirror Mirror is a story about twin brothers who lust for each other with one fighting his lusts and the other wheedling his twin into sexual exchanges. When they team up with Lord Gustuv itís more of the same with Jakob always giving in and Matthias fighting the attraction. Mike Shade is an excellent author whose writing is incredible. Iíve always felt itís hard to write a love triangle with more than a couple and he does a remarkable job at this and it shows in the story. However, for me the constant conflict marred the flow of the storyline. This story was just a little darker than I thought it would be and while the story ends up on a happy note, it does so kind of abruptly. I would have liked to have seen the conflict worked out just a little sooner so the happy ending would have left me as the reader feeling a little more glow at the menís happiness.
