Reckless Living Shadows
The moth on Jacob’s breast is getting darker. This is going to be his very own treasure hunt. A magical crossbow is supposed to save his life, but Jacob is not the only one searching for it. Nerron, the Bastard, becomes his shadow and a tenacious foe.
Can Love Save Jacob Reckless? Jacob Reckless has only a few months left to live. He’s tried everything to shake the fairy curse that traded his life for his brother’s - legends like the All-Healing Apple, the Well of Eternal Youth, the blood of a northern djinn. And yet hope after hope is extinguished.
After months of fruitless searching, Jacob journeys to Mirrorland one last time to deliver the bad news to Fox. But there they hear of one last possibility. An item so legendary that not even MirrorWorlders believe it exists. A crossbow that could kill thousands, or heal one, when shot through the heart. To find it, Jacob is going to have to beat out a Goyl treasure hunter who is also searching for the prized crossbow— and somehow convince Fox to do whatever it takes to save him."
Jacob's second adventure is told, and this time I had travelled so far beyond the mirror, that I almost didn't find back. I travelled with mermen, Bluebeards and princes, by train and ship, on horseback and by uncomfortable coaches. I looked into Fox' past and I felt Jacob's mortal fear. I met false witches, a blacksmith with a golden foot, a Goyl with onyx skin... and I miss all that so very much, so that I am now reading Russian fairy tales to continue my journey with book III. Who knows how many books this story will fill in the end. It keeps its secrets safe as the treasures that Jacob is searching for! I can't wait to disclose them all. Jacob is smiling. Needless to say! He knows what I am talking about...
