Gr 7-10-After saving his younger brother Will's life in Reckless (Little, Brown, 2010), Jacob Reckless now has to save his own. With only months to live after being cursed, he searches for the Witch Slayer's crossbow, rumored to give life instead of death when it's used out of love. He is competing for the crossbow against ruthless fellow treasure hunter Nerron; a stone onyx, Goyl, who's saddled with a spoiled prince; and other unwelcome companions on his quest. A map helps readers track Jacob and Fox, the lovely shape-shifting human/vixen who loves him, as they desperately search all around Mirrorworld while encountering such familiar fairy-tale characters as Bluebeard. The action lags a bit when it's interrupted by descriptions of this fantasy world's unique inhabitants and history, but it reads quickly because of its many short chapters. Jacob's and Fox's personalities remain a bit flat because the plot takes precedence, although more is revealed about Fox's background than in the previous book. Jacob's continued inability to express his love for her lends poignancy to their close relationship, which is in danger of being cut short. Recognizable fairy-tale lore such as poisoning by the "Snow White method" and intriguing characters like mysterious Norebo Earlking will keep readers waiting for the next book in the series. Recommended reading for fans of Reckless and for readers who like reimagined fairy tales set in a unique world.-Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trentonα(c) Copyright 2011.

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. Grades 7-10. --Carolyn Phelan

Mirrorworlders will devour it.
And like Inkworld, Mirrorworld is populated with colorful, complex, flawed yet intersting characters. Yes, even some of the antagonists have you warming up to them, especially the Goyl. The world she has created on the other side of the mirror will enchant you as much as the woods and kingdoms and inhabitants of Inkworld.

The book reads well and is based in geography, which I always love about Fairytales; knowing the history and context behind monsters.
