About this item
Jacob Reckless is on a quest to save his life, before the Red Fairy's curse is completed and kills him. After trying numerous remedies that don't work, Jacob and his shape-shifting friend, Fox, decide to travel deep into Mirrorworld, into the land of Helvetia. There, a golden crossbow in a tomb could be Jacob's last chance. The pair are closely followed by a dangerous treasure hunter named Nerron, who seeks the same prize. Steeped in fairytales embedded in a fantastical world that mirrors old Europe, this is the second book in the Mirrorworld series by acclaimed children's book author Cornelia Funke.
Having pursued numerous legendary cures in hopes of breaking the Fairy curse that will end his life in a matter of months, Jacob Reckless considers giving up before learning of an elusive crossbow that can either kill thousands or heal a single individual, a prize also sought by a Goyl treasure hunter. 100,000 first printing.
