There a curse is set in place, a curse that starts turning Will into stone, the worst type of stone...
From here on Jacob, Fox and Clara, along with multiple other amazing characters are bought into the tale which is weaved beautifully and makes you feel like you are in it, are on a quest to save Will, before it's too late.
I have been a Funke fan for a long time and when I started reading Reckless I was instantly swept away, it is such a magical book and the beginning of chapter illustrations and the chapter names themselves all add to the story!
I just adored this book and I can't wait for the sequel! Hopefully it comes out soon!
More books by Cornelia are:
The Inkworld trilogy.
Igraine the Brave.
Thanks for looking,
