Inkspell by Cornelia Funke

Inkspell holds all the love of books, magic, and adventure that Inkheart did. What a fantastical sequel. In this one, Meggie, Mo, Resa and Farid are actually in the Inkworld. With them, we travel the Wayless Woods, see the Castle of Night, meet the Adderhead, the Laughing Prince (Prince of Sighs) and even Cosimo the Fair.

For some reason it took me a while to get into it and I struggled with the first 100 pages or so, but once it got going I couldn’t put it down. I liked the budding romance between Meggie and Farid. All the new characters introduced made the story all the more enjoyable. With a new nemesis and some of the old one’s being back, Inkspell takes us to a higher and more dangerous level. The ending was a bit sad (why did it have to be my favorite character?) - but I have high hopes that Inkdeath will turn it all around and wrap it up to my satisfaction. :D

I fell in love with Dustfinger in this book. I've been holding off reading InkDeath, but I'll get to it soon.

I am truly looking forward to reading this series! I've got the first two on the shelves, but not the third yet. I'm glad you're enjoying them...it's a good push for me to read them!

I think I need to reread Inkheart before reading this one. With all the good reviews around, I'm thinking I just might.

I have mine on audio...I pray it won't take that long for me to get into it...I might not last as long as you did. :(
