Dark Mirror is a novel by Craig Shaw Gardner centered around Angel and his team. It was the last Angel novel to be published.


A series of perfect clones of members at Angel Investigations are lurking in the city. They plan to kill the originals. Team Angel must find out where the replicas are coming from and why, before the murder spree hits the whole city. The gang must face dark versions of themselves.


  • The events took place after "The House Always Wins" but before "Slouching Toward Bethlehem".
  • Cordelia has no memory of who she is, Fred and Gunn are still very much in love, and Connor and Wesley are still somewhat unwelcome at the Hyperion.
  • At one point a Sinner attempts to copy Cordelia, but the attempt proves unsuccessful, most likely due to Cordelia currently being possessed by Jasmine- albeit in a state of amnesia- and hence her soul was not actually dominant at the time.
