Reckless: The Petrified Flesh Book Review

“The mirror will open only for he who cannot see himself”

Reckless: The Petrified Flesh begins similar to one entering a dream.  Rather than filling it with prologues, backstories, and character descriptions, Funke invites all who open this dark fairytale to dive down the rabbit hole and right into the action.   650 more words

A book always keeps something of its owner between its pages.

Book Quotes

. . . "portable magic . . ."
