Publisher's Summary

Jacob Reckless continues to travel the portal in his father's abandoned study. His name has continued to be famous on the other side of the mirror, as a finder of enchanted items and buried secrets. 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 too well.

    "I tried to like me storyteller despite the previou"

    I tried to like the Storyteller despite the previous reviews just so I could be different however I must agree it's kind of hard to enjoy the story with a new reader. the story seems a little cramped for information and was a lot to take in at once. it ended abruptly. there was no closing or even something to draw you to the next suspense if there is another book I don't know

    "Bring back the old narrator"

    the old narrator was way better. you can't just change them midway, she gave everyone a French accent and made it difficult to listen and understand

    "Horrible narration."

    Loved the first two books and the narration. Was not happy to have a new narrator but was willing to give it a fair shot. She uses inconsistent and strange "accents". Can't even understand what she is saying at times. Makes great story hard to listen to. Very, very disappointed

    "A bit disappointed"

    I was really looking forward to this book and I was very disappointed that Elliot Hill did not narrator this book. The story is great but Elliot Hill gave the other two books and their characters so much life that this narrator was just not able to do. 😒

    Story
    "Fairies and silver and mirrors and stone"

    This was a great edition to the Mirror-world novels... not my most favorite of Mrs. Funke's books (or series... I reserve that place for the Ink trilogy. ;) ) but still an exciting tale. one of the things I love most about her books is that when things get dark... they get REALLY dark... and even when you think things have GOT to be getting lighter, they get darker still. buy she mixes in just enough hope and love and wonder to balance the dark and keep readers wanting more. (and, I have to say, I LOVE the tiny nods she made to the Ink books in this story... made me so happy!)

    "3rd not as good as 1 & 2"

    having enjoyed Funke's books when my son was younger, I began this series. The 1st 2 were entertaining, as was this 3rd. However, I found it a little difficult to follow, perhaps because of the new narrator.

    Story
    "Another excellent story from the mind of C.F."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Golden Yarn to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version, though I think I will.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Honestly, I love all the characters, so I can't choose a favourite. They all have so many facets to them, parts of their personalities that are revealed only as the Reckless stories continue. Certainly Fox ranks among the top.


    What does Jayne Entwistle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The accents; when I read a good book, I see a movie in my mind and I hear different voices, but I could never have done the accents.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Another world as you've never seen.


    Any additional comments?

    When I first learned that Eliot Hill would not be reading the third Reckless book, I was very disappointed. I had loved his reading, and didn't see how a women could do as well. Was I wrong -- Jane Entwistle was excellent, brought so much to the story, and I will definitely be looking for other audible books read by her.
