Product description

The second book in Cornelia Funke’s internationally celebrated trilogy – magical, thrilling and mesmerising.

‘I don’t think I’ve ever read anything that conveys so well the joys, terrors and pitfalls of reading’ Diana Wynne Jones on Inkheart

Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of the extraordinary events of Inkheart, and the story whose characters strode out of the pages, and changed her life for ever. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater, torn from his world of words, the need to return has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the magical ability to read him back, he sets in motion a dangerous reversal that sees the characters of Inkheart transported to a charmed Inkworld, about to be fought over by rival rebels and princes.

    five reasons why this book is amazing: 1. It has brilliant descriptions and makes you feel like you’er there. 2. It is full of mysteries and strange happenings. 3. It goes from one characters narration to another in perfect time. 4. A lot of the things talked about in ink heart are put into more depth. 5. Although it is a big book, 675 pages, once you get into it you won’t be able to get out. So read this book guys!!!!!!!!!!!

    I liked this sequel just as much as the first one! Cornelia Funke has this way of making her characters and fantasy world SO real. If you like fantasy, give these books a try!

    An amazing book filled with imagination and adventure, the power all readers secretly think they have, to read things to life. It seems that all of Cornelia Funke’s books are just awesome. the second of a brilliant trilogy

    This is a really good book. If you have read any of Cornelia Funke’s book. You will like this one (read Inkheart first for the story to make sense.)

    This is amazing, however not as good as the other two in the series. It is still gripped with mystery and Meggie is such an amazing character!
