Day 28. Thank YOU. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh

Thank you guys so, so much for keeping up with the 28 Days of Reckless: The Petrified Flesh. Even though work has been crazy (and I've gotten a little behind on a day or two), I've had a lot of fun doing this. So, to everyone who read my posts, retweeted them, and <3'd them on Twitter -  Thank you. You are great. Hopefully I was able to convince at least one person to read the books. If you haven't read the book, you were probably confused while reading some of these. So, go read the book and be un-confused!  I love you all. As always I'll post the links under the cover to the places you can learn about the Reckless Series and purchase the first book on Amazon.

Day 27. Z is for Zealous. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh

Z is for Zealous

These last 3 letters have been seriously difficult. So, I decided to talk about my zealousness for this series. I know that I can be a bit overbearing with my love for the books, but guys... this series has been such a happy place for me. It's gotten me through so much, and I'm so grateful for the world that Cornelia Funke created. So I most definitely can be overzealous about it. I'd like to take this sentence and thank Nikki for listening to all of the Hentzau chapters in the audio books.(Even if Nikki is a John Reckless fan. :P) Anyway. I'll save me thank you for the rest of you who have been keeping up with these posts of the last month.

Day 26. Y is for Yesterday. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh.

Y is for Yesterday

I literally have nothing for this post. I decided to drop off one of the most popular highlights in the first book, though. I'd talk about the chapter labeled "DREAMS" because it's gorgeous, but you guys already know that I love the Dark Fairy and Kami'en and that they're my OTP FOREEEEEVER. So, I'll drop this lovely line from "Dreams" aka chapter 22 in TPF

"Neither Goyl nor men lived long enough to understand that yesterday was born of tomorrow, just as tomorrow was born of yesterday." -  Cornelia Funke, RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh.

Day 25. X. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh.

Sorry I'm late on my posts. I work retail so weekends are super crazy for me. Plus, I've been sick, so I just haven't gotten around to posting these.


X is a seriously hard letter to fin a word to go with. So, I decided to do it like Roman Numerals kind of thing and talk about Chapter 10 in the book. In chapter 10, the reader really gets to see the relationship/closeness of the two main characters in the series and also learn their backstory. Fox and Jacob have such good chemistry in the Reckless series, and for the first time, you get to see Fox in her human skin instead of the fur of the vixen. In this chapter, Jacob makes a decision to go seek help from the one person he swore he'd never go back to and it sets a lot of things into motion.

Day 24. W is for Will Reckless. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh

W is for Will Reckless

Will Reckless is one of our main characters and Jacob's brother. Where Jacob is more hard and lives up to his last name, Will is calm and gentle. That is until the Jade takes over his skin. The calmness and kindness that makes Will who he is becomes shadowed by the rage that lurks under every Goyl's stone skin. He's the fiercest Goyl/Man-Goyl and lives up to the myth that every Goyl child grows up hearing.

Day 23. V is for Valiant. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh

Evenaugh Valiant is the character I see most vividly in my head from the Reckless Series. I hate that I actually like him because you can't trust him - at all. His allegiance is strictly to himself and what's going to benefit him. Dwarves in general aren't very fond of humans, but Jacob and Valiant have a very tense history, and their dislike for each other is very present in TPF, I'm really curious to see if he'll be more of a friend or foe for the rest of the series.

Day 22. U is for Underground. RECKLESS: The Petrified Flesh

U is for Underground

I'm sure it won't surprise any of you, but if I could live anywhere in the MirrorWorld, it would be underground in a Goyl city. In my opinion, the underground world of the Goyl is the most beautiful place in all the MirrorWorld. Imagine frozen waterfalls, crystal flowers blossoming, mosaics made by some of the greatest artisans in the world (I just figure they have to be. Growing up surrounded by so much color and beauty has to have created amazing artists underground.) 

"Houses, towers and palaces grew from the bottom of the cave and up its walls, like wasps' nests." - RECKLESS, Cornelia Funke. (the city around the Goyl palace.)

"Higher up, above the houses and the web of bridges that looked as if it had been woven by a steel-spinning spider, hung a series of gigantic stalactites. The largest one was dotted with metal towers pointing downward like spears, and the whole structure glowed as if its walls had been saturated with the moonlight of the world above." - Reckless, Cornelia Funke (about the Goyl palace)

Guys, I would move there TODAY. As a bonus, there's no Donald Trump there! That's a win by itself!
