A Mirror Mended is the next installment in USA Today bestselling author Alix E. Harrow's Fractured Fables series.
Zinnia Gray, professional fairy-tale fixer and lapsed Sleeping Beauty is over rescuing snoring princesses. Once you’ve rescued a dozen damsels and burned fifty spindles, once you’ve gotten drunk with twenty good fairies and made out with one too many members of the royal family, you start to wish some of these girls would just get a grip and try solving their own narrative issues.
Just when Zinnia’s beginning to think she can't handle one more princess, she glances into a mirror and sees another face looking back at her: the shockingly gorgeous face of evil, asking for her help. Because there’s more than one person trapped in a story they didn’t choose. Snow White's Evil Queen has found out how her story ends and she's desperate for a better ending. She wants Zinnia to help her before it’s too late for everyone.
Will Zinnia accept the Queen's poisonous request, and save them both from the hot iron shoes that wait for them, or will she try another path?

Zinnia Gray isn't the damsel in distress anymore in Harrow's fast-paced and snarky sequel to A Spindle Splintered. Zinnia has spent the five years between volumes jumping through different "Sleeping Beauty" tales to free the eponymous princesses from their destinies. But at the end of her most recent rescue, Zinnia's pulled through the narrative multiverse and into a different tale: "Snow White." Zinnia knows how the story should go, but the evil queen has other ideas. She wants out, and she thinks Zinnia can help her. While Zinnia's trapped with the evil queen in a dark and dangerous world, a startling consequence of her story-hopping comes to light, making it more important than ever that she find a way back home. The barrage of pop culture references is just as relentless here as in book one, which may overwhelm some readers, but all will be pleased to see Zinnia grow into herself, and the unapologetic focus on queer relationships delights. Series fans and lovers of fractured fairy tales will find plenty to hold their attention. (Jun.)
