Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This adventure-driven fantasy, the first in a series, will have readers turning pages.” Booklist
“Funke takes readers on a new adventure into a magical place where the dark side of fairy tales holds sway. Jacob Reckless, like his father before him, escapes into the Mirrorworld, and all is well until his younger brother, Will, follows him in and falls under the enchantment of the Dark Fairy…readers are pulled into the thrill of the story. 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. The fact that the main characters are in their twenties will help to extend its potential readership to older students. 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
