The Lovereading4Kids comment

January 2013 Book of the Month Best-selling Cornelia Funke has an exceptional gift for creating gloriously gothic otherworlds in which the unusual and seemingly impossible can – and does- happen. Part two of the Mirrrorworld series, Fearless follows Reckless and catches up with Jacob who desperately seeks a cure to overcome the curse imposed on him by the fairies. Jacob’s cure is such a dark magic that it must be deeply hidden; the search for it takes him where no one should tread. That would be dangerous enough but, worse still, someone else is desperate for the cure too. Luckily, Fox, a shape shifting girl is willing to help in the quest.

In addition to our Lovereading expert opinion for Fearless a small number of Lovereading members were lucky enough to be invited to review this title. Scroll down to read them. Here’s a taster from one of the reviews. “This is a fast paced fantasy story with lots of action. We need more!" Scroll down to read the rest of this review and all the reader reviews.


Fearless by Cornelia Funke

After saving his brother, Jacob Reckless faces death from the fairy's curse burning in his heart. In search of a cure he returns to the Mirrorworld, where he is reunited with Fox, a beautiful shape-shifting girl. He has one more chance: a golden crossbow, with the power to both save and destroy life, buried in a dead king' tomb beneath an invisible palace. Jacob must cross continents,ace monsters and men - including a dangerous rival - and learn what it means to stay alive.
