Jacob Reckless returns once again to the Mirrorworld--filled with profound characters, extraordinary creatures, and epic life-or-death treasure hunts that could only come from the mind of the master storyteller of our generation, Cornelia Funke.
Jacob Reckless has only a few months left to live. He's tried everything to shake the Fairy curse that traded his life for his brother's--legends such as the All-Healing Apple, the Well of Eternal Youth, the blood of a northern Djinn. And yet hope after hope is extinguished. After months of fruitless searching, Jacob journeys through his father's mirror one final time to deliver the bad news to Fox.
But there they hear of one last possibility--an item so legendary that not even Mirrorworlders believe it exists: a crossbow that can kill thousands, or heal one, when shot through the heart. But a Goyl treasure hunter is also searching for the prized crossbow. Jacob must find it first--and somehow convince Fox to do whatever it takes to save him.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Urgency meets desperation in this fantasy adventure story, translated from the German, as Jacob and Fox seek the legendary crossbow that they hope will save Jacob's life. But they must find it before a fairy's curse takes its mortal toll, and only if Fox can summon the courage to shoot the magical artifact. In this sequel to Reckless (2010), Jacob and Fox race against time, death, and a rival band of treasure hunters who are equally determined to steal the crossbow. Along the way, shape-shifting Fox is trapped by a Bluebeard figure, while Jacob must deal with intense pain as his life is magically bitten away by unseen forces. Readers drawn to the first book by its nonstop adventure and fairy tale-based elements will find more of the same here, while the main characters are somewhat more fully drawn and sympathetic. The ending leaves enough unresolved questions to ensure that another sequel will follow in the dark, enigmatic ­Mirrorworld series.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
