The captivating sequel to INKHEART, the critically acclaimed, international bestseller by Cornelia Funke, an author who is emerging as a truly modern classic writer for children.

Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of INKHEART, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past. Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. But the story is threatening to evolve in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.

    I LOVED IT!!!!!!! It was very fulfilling and made me really want to read the last book in the trilogy, Inkdeath. The love in it was funny and how everyone is in the book is cool. I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful book.

      I have not finished it but so far it is actually really good, it is really imaginative and creative and it is not that hard so far like the words aren't hard even for a 5th grader and I love that before you start reading it tells about the characters.

        i am currently reading this book and i do not like it so far, it is not a hood starting point from where the last book stopped. Granted i have only read the fist few chapters but still i do not like it so far and do not reccomend it.

          Inkspell, the story that takes place a year after the events of Inkheart, where Dustfinger returns to the Inkheart after a storyteller brought him in there, leaving his friend Farid. Meggie somehow gets in this situation and the adventures begin. The storytelling is great and the plot flows smoothly and it was really a page-turner for me, giving this book 5 stars. The characters actions relates to me on a personal level. I recommend this book for middle school and higher who love fantasy and adventure in their books (after you read the first book).

            I read this book because I watched the movie of the book prior to Inkspell when i was 6 and I remember LOVING it. I recommend this book if you love to read. WARNING they do curse in the book if you wanted to know. AND a kissing scene btw.

              This book was even better than the first one in this series. Though, all of these books are amazing, this is the one that will always hold a place in my heart.

                      I read Inkspell. Meggie reads herself into the book. Can she get out? Her father might die. Her mother is scared. People attack and they are going to hang Meggie and her father. Will they live? Who is the bluebird? Read it yourself to find out.
