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.

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. 😒

A really good book

I really enjoyed the book and didn't mind the change of narrators. The story is excellent and really gripping the whole way through.

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

Really wanted to like this book.

What disappointed you about The Golden Yarn?

I love Cornelia Funke, her Inkheart series is one of my top book choices. This series however was ok but this last book was horrible in every way.

Any additional comments?

Try Inkheart it is a wonderful representation of her work as an author very detailed and something you can truly escape into.

Great Narration

Jayne Entwistle does a terrific job narrating The Golden Yarn! I wish she had narrated the first two books in the Reckless series, and sincerely hope she narrates the new ones to come!

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!)
