from Rose on Reading — Earlier this fall, we sent out several copies of The Petrified Flesh to reviewers around the world, and it's been lovely to see so many of their pictures and thoughts about the first book in the series!
Rose sent us a link to her wonderful review, so of course we had to pass the good news on to you! It's full of great pictures, fun facts about the book, and of course Rose's thoughts on the story. You can read the full review here.
Here's one excerpt:
Reckless: The Petrified Flesh begins similar to one entering a dream. Rather than filling it with prologues, backstories, and character descriptions, Funke invites all who open this dark fairytale to dive down the rabbit hole and right into the action. The story opens on Jacob Reckless, a man who ventures from our world into the world beyond the mirror. He builds a reputation for himself as an enchanted treasure hunter, discovering fairytale riches to be sold to the highest bidder.
Thanks again for sharing this with us, Rose!
