Reckless by Cornelia Funke

Publishing House: Little, Brown Young Readers

Genre: Dark Fantasy

Rating: PG-13
Summary: Beyond the mirror, the darkest fairy tales come alive. . . .

For years, Jacob Reckless has enjoyed the Mirrorworld's secrets and treasures.

Not anymore.

His younger brother has followed him.

Now dark magic will turn the boy to beast, break the heart of the girl he loves, and destroy everything Jacob holds most dear. . . .

Unless he can find a way to stop it.

If you're looking for happily ever after, you've come to the wrong place.


Being a fan of the creepier fantasy novel, I really enjoyed this book. And although it could probably fit into a few other genres, I decided just to go with ‘Dark Fantasy’, since that sums it up well.

Now, as for the rating, I chose PG-13 mainly for violence. There’s one especially gruesome character, and you get to spend a chapter with him. I usually don’t get too scared by books, but I was completely freaked after reading about said character.

There are also some sexual innuendos but nothing incredibly heavy. The main character “spends the night” with another character, but that’s as detailed as it gets. Two characters (one being the main character) accidentally drink some magic ‘love water’ and kiss passionately. There’s only a few swear words, so nothing too bad.
