The Petrified Flesh

Review:

The Petrified Flesh (Reckless Book 1) - Cornelia Funke, Oliver Latsch

The Petrified Flesh (or Reckless as it used to be called), is a series by Cornelia Funke that I have seen in the bookstore about a million times. Something, however, stopped me from reading it previously. I can’t even begin to explain why, because her Inkworld trilogy is one of my favorite children’s books and The Thief Lord I also enjoyed a lot.

Maybe it was just a warning from myself, because now that I read it, it didn’t feel right and I can’t say that I enjoyed it. It felt part like a cheaper version of Inkworld, with another world behind the mirror, and also the characters didn’t come to life for me (pun intended). It was not truly bad either, but just very forgettable.

I was disappointed, and I haven’t decided yet wether or not to continue with the series.
