Fearless (A MirrorWorld Novel) by Cornelia Funke

Fearless (A MirrorWorld Novel) by Cornelia Funke

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,927 |Likes:
Jacob Reckless returns once again to the Mirrorworld--filled with profound characters, extraordinary creatures, and epic life-or-death treasure hunts that could only come from the mind of the master storyteller of our generation, Cornelia Funke.

Jacob Reckless has only a few months left to live. He's tried everything to shake the Fairy curse that traded his life for his brother's--legends such as the All-Healing Apple, the Well of Eternal Youth, the blood of a northern Djinn. And yet hope after hope is extinguished. After months of fruitless searching, Jacob journeys through his father's mirror one final time to deliver the bad news to Fox.

But there they hear of one last possibility--an item so legendary that not even Mirrorworlders believe it exists: a crossbow that can kill thousands, or heal one, when shot through the heart. But a Goyl treasure hunter is also searching for the prized crossbow. Jacob must find it first--and somehow convince Fox to do whatever it takes to save him.

WAITING
He still wasn’t back.
“I won’t stay long.” 
Fox wiped the rain o her ace. WithJacob, this could mean anything. Sometimes he stayed or weeks. Sometimes months.The ruin lay deserted as usual, and the silence betweenthe scorched walls made her shiver nearly as much as therain. The human skin warmed so much less, yet Fox now shited into the vixen ever more rarely. All too clearly shehad begun to eel how the ur stole the years rom her—even without Jacob reminding her.He’d held her so close beore he let, as i he wanted totake her warmth with him into the world where he wasborn. Something rightened him, though he didn’t admitit, o course. He was still like a boy who thought he couldoutrun his own shadow.
