Reckless: The Petrified Flesh

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Chicken House

A dark and dangerous world peopled by dwarves, shape-shifting vixen, mythical beasts and stone Goyls lurks on the other side of the ornate mirror in Jacob's father's study.

Jacob has often secretly ventured through the mirror in search of his missing father. But one day his brother Will follows him, with disastrous consequences.

Only the powerful Fairies, who can turn grown men into wriggling fish, can reverse the spell which is turning Will's flesh into jade. But should Jacob trust the Dark or the Red Fairy? Both can easily destroy Jacob, Will and his beloved Clara.

An atmosphere bristling with menace and nerve-jangling apprehension permeates this fantasy thriller. Readers will beg for more, even as they turn the last page.
