Lists with This Book. Apr 17, Dorreh rated it really liked it. That was so enigmatic! I feel like I just want to curl into a corner and cry. When speaking of this book I just want to say, that I remembered next to nothing of the books prior to this in the series. So basically it was like being a confused puppy! But it was such a great book, the prior introductions weren't as necessary as one would assume. Jacob reckless, I mean even the choice of name makes you cringe with excitement.
There was so much dynamic between characters, so much innovation in retold f That was so enigmatic! There was so much dynamic between characters, so much innovation in retold fairytales and stories that I just couldn't keep up at times. I'm not going to review this book in detail, but I can easily say it was such an enjoyable read.
But you probably should read the prior two books a little closer to reading this! Mar 19, C. Drews rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm so addicted to this series it's becoming ridiculous. I just wanted to rush through and read the whole thing because LOVE I just can't get over how darkly and beautifully magical it is and how it manages to make me feel all things and be so deeply in love with the world and characters that I'm just basically a small puddle of adoration. Apparently I have to wait until forever to get The Islands of the Fox. But that just means I'll have an excuse to re-read all of these yes?
Least to say they will break your heart and mend it and break it and I can't even with these two. Honestly one of my most favourite ships of ever. The plot involves a LOT of travel, but yet it's not dull! I love how the author skips over any dull scenes and just gives you the interesting and meaty ones. Insert heart-eye emoji here honestly. This is everything I want with a magical adventure. Although kind of stuck on the ship name? Like what is this blessed madness I'm so relieved. I think I'm hopelessly in love with the world. It just inspires me so much YAS All in all: Not even gonna lie.
When I say "I love dark fairy tale", this book actually delivers what I want. The characters are my precious children of stab and bad decisions and tragedy. I love brother tales and I love slow burn romance and I adore complex world building. If you need me I'm in a hole of tragedy waiting for more books. View all 12 comments.

Ich liebe den Schreibstil. Ich liebe Fuchs und Jacob. Ich hasse das Liebesdreieck. Ich hasse die vielen Perspektivwechsel. Uuuuund der rote Faden fehlt. Das Worldbuilding, der beeindruckende Schreibs Ich liebe den Schreibstil. Das Worldbuilding, der beeindruckende Schreibstil und auch die tollen Charaktere reichten in diesem dritten Band einfach nicht mehr aus, um mich durchgehend an die Geschichte zu fesseln, auch wenn all diese Dinge noch immer wundervoll waren.
Jacob darf keine Kinder bekommen. Das ist eine Entscheidung, die Fuchs zu treffen hat, nicht Jacob. Mal ganz davon abgesehen, dass es selbst in einer Welt wie der von Reckless so etwas wie Adoption geben sollte. As inseverable as the threads of fate. Who knows how long we will have to wait until the next one! Once again a wonderful trip into this amazing world full of magic, villains and secrets. Jacob and Fox are swept up into so many different tasks and treasure hunts; Jacob's brother Will once again follows him through the mirror to "The Golden Yarn Jacob and Fox are swept up into so many different tasks and treasure hunts; Jacob's brother Will once again follows him through the mirror to search for a remedy for Clara as something has been done to her - something not of our world.
The Dark Fairy is still around, but her love for the King of the Goyl or the stone men is causing her nothing but pain, and she would do anything to sever the bond between them caused by love. Jacob also comes into contact with his father after about a decade, but it isn't the tearful reunion we would expect! All the old characters are in this book as well as plenty of new ones.
That would be my only gripe that stopped this one from being 4 stars, the number of characters - all with different names and nicknames, as well as each chapter following a different person or set of people made it ever so slightly more difficult to follow than the previous two books were.

Otherwise, a magical and engaging story with lots of twists. Jacob has a debt that is owed from book 2, and it is only a matter of time until it will be paid. View all 4 comments. Soll da noch ein Band kommen? The discarded mistress of a King. Love had made her so small. The thing is, they are complicated , they are convoluted and many-sided, their plots are like clocks put to work by some inconceivably refined gears, and the very same definition can be applied to their characters. In books like hers, there are wheels within wheels and worlds within worlds and secrets you will never uncover, 4.
In books like hers, there are wheels within wheels and worlds within worlds and secrets you will never uncover, no matter how hard you try. That's the worst of curses. For it means that thankfully you qill never run out of hidden details to discover, but also that you will always keep wandering what little marvel you have not been able to figure out yet. The Golden Yarn is no exception. It is a wonderful book.
Fairy tales' lovers like me cannot avoid being totally entranced by it like childrens by their bedtime stories. And I am not talking about a purely aesthetic quality: Funke can ensure that you find yourself out of breath page in, page out, even for those characters you thought you did not care about. Kami'en and the Dark Fairy. They almost brought me to tears. And I am not one for tears. The Dark One, above all, in this book gave her best: I hadn't given her much attention before, and surely not the attention she deserved, but reading this book I realized how deep her characterization digs, and all the dirt that it brings out, all the self-hatred and the shame, the longing, an abyss of longing, the fragility and the firmness, the fear of not being herself anymore, and all for love's sake.
She was simply marvellous. And then there were Jacob and Fox. But maybe it's just me that have been building too many castles int he clouds. What I found more disappointing, instead, was the writing. Which is quite strange, because I have always loved Funke's writing, and still here I am saying it: This resulted in me having some issue with the narrative and its pace -more the 'single-event pace' than the overall pace: It felt annoyingly unnantural and I know Funke knows betterthan this, so I wasn't properly happy about it. But, needless to say, I loved the book all the same.

Think "Through the Looking Glass" but much darker and not humorous. The series tracks the adventures of Jacob Reckless and his friends and enemies and various magical creatures elves, fairies, creatures made of glass, goyle--who have stone skins, etc.
Jacob is a renowned treasure hunter in the Mirrorworld. He found his way there by surreptitiously following his father from our world the "real world" through an enchanted mirror to the Mirrorworld. It's hard to pinpoint exactly why though. The plots are convoluted and the characters unsympathetic.

That's just part of the problem. As usual Funke is very creative and good at world building, but it's hard to care about most of the people except for Fox, an appealing shape shifter. The central conceit of the book, that a magical "golden yarn" ties lovers together whether they like it or not, never came to life for me.
Jayne Entwhistle's audio reading didn't help matters. She reads this like a chirpy, bored English school girl. Her manner was completely unsuited to the material. This time we're crossing into unknown territory so there is even a map at the beginning of the book or maybe the publisher only included it because it's fashionable now.

Varangia it's called in Mirrorworld and full of tame bears wearing human clothes, fire birds, Russian witches Baba Yagas , colourful houses, lots of magical items and old old old forests that I wish so much still existed in our world today. As characters, there is the so-called "Spieler" player , an Erlelf, who definitely isn't a good guy. What happened to him and his kind was not very nice but apparently they had been bad before and are now simply seeing themselves as victims, using every available resource and there are many to get their revenge although their punishment was justified.
Revenge is the general force for Will Jacob's younger brother too. I must admit that I don't like Will very much. In the first book he was a victim, lost in an unknown world, needing his brother, being overwhelmed by a curse. In this book he was supposed to be a victim of Spieler's too, but he was just so whiney and selfish on one side, completely stupid and annoying on the other, so I couldn't sympathize with him.
And we get to see John Reckless, Will's and Jacob's father. I'm not sure I should start writing about this man. With all my heart! Not enough that he abandoned his family, no. He's addicted to fame and glory while simultaneously being the greatest coward that ever lived. He's the one bringing all the progress to Mirrorworld for which alone I'd want to kill him. You have to read it all to understand the dimension of his awfulness.
Unfortunately he does not die a violent death in this book like I had hoped. As a new character we get a man from our world. That was spicing things up a bit and creating a few quite funny interactions. Also, I think, he's the one bridging the story to book 4 and its' setting the Mirrorworld version of Canada, I think. It was also nice to have the old characters like Alma the witch and Chanute again. It balanced the whole thing and showed where Jacob really belongs. And it made up for all the awful chapters about our world in the first third of the book they were written as wonderfully as the other chapters but I don't want to read about our world, I like Mirrorworld much better, just like Jacob, and couldn't get behind the mirror soon enough.
And then we have Jacob and Fuchs. I usually hate when love stories are included but here I was really rooting for them. Having met when Fuchs was a little girl before the first book and having been the bestest of friends, they grow to need one another. At first only like friends, then like brother and sister and then Thanks to the fox fur that makes Celeste Fuchs' human name shapeshift, she's also aging sooner which is logical considering that most animals, foxes in particular, age faster than humans.
In the second book her age and that of Jacob caught up with one another and after what happened at the end of book 2, not even they can deny their feelings any longer. But thanks to Spieler, it's complicated. I usually really hate that because it's unnecessary drama but here it's never too much.
Sure, the suspense was killing me, but it was still fairly realistic considering we're in a world where fairy tales are true. And yes, there is a happy ending.
Well, it is happy for these two and that's all I really wanted that's a lie actually, I'll explain later. Also, I love the immportals the author created. Not the Erlelfen although they and their powers are pretty amazing. I mean the fae. Especially the Dark One I'm not going to tell you her name or I'll have to die for that ;p.
I felt for her sooooo much. And that is why the ending of this book was so bitter for me. An immortal who had grown to actually love only to get her supposedly non-existing heart broken? Who, despite all the pain and fury, still doesn't kill half the world? An immortal who felt so much with non-immortal creatures that she was really wanting to help like when she lifted Will's curse in book 1 or warned Jacob about her sister?
She was really great - something that cannot be said about her red sister. I wanted her to succeed with the Golden Yarn. Which she did but I don't think she actually enjoyed the prosepct of being who she had been before meeting Kami'en. Also, I wanted the situation with her and all her sisters to stay the same because I'm afraid all the magic will completely fade away now.
How many mirrors are there and have the others gone through too so we'll be rid of the Erlelfen soon or will the others think of something else? How soon will the still lasting curse work on Spieler? Who is the fae's white hope to me, there are two possibilities? What will become of Will and Nerron and Sixteen? And what the fuck will Will do about Clara - or has he forgotten her already, being as despicable as his father?
If the author has any say in it, it will be 3 more. And I think I know where the 4th will be taking us at least in part, it's possible she will have to split the narratives to show happenings on two different continents. I can only hope that I won't have to read too much from John Reckless' and only a few chapters until the whole Spieler-thing is resolved from Will's POV! See you soon I hope on the other side of the mirror!

The world and all it's fascinating details were beautiful, but it still lost it's magic for me. Only the last pages really pulled me in again like the previous books did and convinced me that Cornelia Funke still hasn't lost her talent to enchant you with her words and world building.
The characters were not as endearing as I remembered them, I honestly liked some of the supporting characters This book started out really slow and took forever to actually build some kind of interesting story. The characters were not as endearing as I remembered them, I honestly liked some of the supporting characters more than the main characters I looved Orlando and Dunbar. So I was definitely disappointed by this book, but the ending saved it for me a bit and made me kind of excited for the next one.
Apr 08, Franziska rated it it was amazing. I was looking forward to this book for quite some time. I have read the series twice now, which is a pretty good idea before reading the third book. Just so you are back on track. This is one of these rare occasions where I like the second book much better than the first.
Cornelia obviously grew accustomed to the new story-world. And by the way, you would be quite shocked that not many of the old masters of fairy-tales really wrote those stories themselves…They all copied it somewhere. It is such a great world Funke built up in the Reckless series. Also the characters are wonderful and thoroughly developed. You know how to work out, if a book is really good? When you read and read and the remaining pages diminish, you are devastated, because you only have about pages left! And you wished there were another pages. Ok, it also happens when you read a good book that is damn hard to read…believe me, reading War and Peace…you do not wish there were a pages more of it to read.
Anyhow, this is the main fault I see here. The book is very easy to read through and somehow you could definitely have more of it. The story picks up some unknown time some days or some weeks where book two ended. Fox decides to return to the Mirrorworld without Jacob, not feeling very comfortable there. Back then Jacob agreed to pay a prize, which Earlking would ask him in the future. Earlking tells him what he wants, which leaves Jacob devastated and he is now more decided than ever about suppressing his feelings.
Will is also dragged in to the Mirrorworld again, going on a hunt together with Nerron. He, too is manipulated by Earlking, who wants him to do a dark deed for him.
