His family and friends, from his brother, Will to the shape-shifting vixen, Fox, are on a collision course as the two worlds become connected. Who is driving these two worlds together and why is he always a step ahead? This new force isn’t limiting its influence to just Jacob’s efforts – it has broadened the horizon within MirrorWorld. Jacob, Will and Fox travel east and into the Russian folklore, to the land of the Baba Yaga, pursued by a new type of being that knows our world all to well.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Jayne Entwistle gives a lively performance, showing listeners both the Mirrorworld and our human world as mortals, fairies, and other magical beings see them…Entwistle does a marvelous job keeping the pace quick while portraying determined treasure hunters, shy fae, evil fairies, growly rock men, arrogant kings, and brave soldiers. There are so many wonderful accents! Will and Jacob are American, while the people of the Mirrorworld sound French, Russian, or Eastern European. Entwistle is excellent, a master storyteller bringing a fantasy world to life. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Combines ‘once upon a time’ excitement with endless possibilities and breathless hopes for a few ‘happily ever afters.’” Foreword Reviews
“Funke’s world is based on a combo of many different fairy tales. So many times in retellings we will get one or maybe two but never have so many been put into one story…She does so well with all of the characters in her stories that even through there are many you don’t get lost and you know everything that is going on.” Night Owl Reviews
“The fantastical adventures of brothers Jacob and Will continue in this exciting installment in Funke’s fairy tale-inspired series…All the characters grapple with heartbreak and betrayal and find that the Golden Yarn, the inseparable bond between lovers, does determine their destinies…[A] story set in a richly imagined world full of familiar fairy tale elements in a unique and compelling way.” School Library Journal
“Dark fantasy, fairy-tale elements, a magic mirror portal into another realm.” Kirkus Reviews
