Review: RECKLESS by Cornelia Funke


4 of 5 stars


This is the first book I've read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed this inventive YA fantasy. The alternate world was brought alive with vivid descriptions of both the countryside and the creatures that inhabited it. The pacing of the story was excellent and the pages flew by. Would Jacob find a way to save his brother from becoming the legendary Jade Goyle? Jacob's companion Fox was an intriguing character. I wanted to know more of her story and the author gives us snippets of this shape shifter. Can't wait to see what happens to Jacob and Fox in the next book.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
