Treasure hunter Jacob Reckless is searching the Mirrorworld for a magical cure for the fairy curse that has been put on his heart. He races against death and against other treasure hunters to find a crossbow whose bolt can kill thousands or cure one. Narrator Elliot Hill keeps up with the story's brisk pace while never losing a detail. His Jacob sounds youthful but determined while Jacob's love interest, Fox, is as sly and cautious as her namesake. Magical creatures abound, and Hill breathes life into menacing stone-skinned men; six-eyed Watermen, who prefer living in ponds to land; dwarves; witches; and mysterious dark fairies. Hill brings both this fairy-tale world and Funke's cleverly written tale splendidly to life. G.D. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
