Shadows and Mirrors by Rena Aliston is a juxtaposition of life and death, love and pain, hurt and healing. This captivating collection explores the human condition through poetry.

The poetry is relatable, intriguing, diverse and dark and written in such a way that it is easily digestible for the reader. I enjoyed the journey this book took me on through the darkness of the authors words.

My favourite lines from this collection are: ‘I pulled it out of my heart, your love – death’s splinter’. I would recommend this to all lovers of dark and foreboding poetry. – Karen L. Richards, Author
