Guardian Review

Reckless by Cornelia Funke, reviewed by Marcus Sedgwick

what saves this book from being merely a smörgåsbord of the fantastic? Two things. First: the confidence with which Funke has created her world, being careful not to explain new ideas any more thoroughly than the ones with which she knows we'll be familiar. This creates a mixture of recognition and uncertain discovery that keeps the book from being mundane. Secondly, as the plot thickens, incorporating the political intrigues of the Mirrorworld, with the fate of our heroes dependent upon the machinations of kings, empresses, princesses and generals, it is the genuine human dramas of love, desire, loyalty and betrayal that bind.
