Description
At 12, Jacob Reckless discovered the portal into the Mirrorworld, where his father disappeared, in this first book in a new series by the author of Inkheart. Now in his 20s, Jacob has made a habit of escaping to this other world and has learned of its many opportunities and dangers. But then his younger brother Will stumbles through the portal and is quickly claimed by the Dark Fairy. Will is now turning into a stone-skinned Goyl, doomed to forget all he is and become a ruthless killing machine, unless Jacob, Will's girlfriend Clara, and the shape-shifting Fox can find the antidote. This fantasy for young adults 12 and up "takes readers on a new adventure into a magical place where the dark side of fairy tales holds sway.... With a large cast, including a dwarf, powerful fairies born from water, deadly moths, man-eating sirens, unicorns, and the terrifying Tailor with fingers ending in blades and needles, the story includes multiple fairy-tale motifs as the characters grapple with fear and despair while on their seemingly hopeless quest.... The themes of guilt, responsibility, abandonment, and love, in the context of the many dangers in the Mirrorworld, contribute to a serious tone. Ultimately the characters keep faith with what matters most to each of them.... Reckless will be enjoyed by Funke's fans, who will be pleased that she has left the door open for a sequel."School Library Journal
