Book Drops: "Inkspell" by Cornelia Funke (childrens/YA) (rated 4 stars)

by Cornelia Funke

Book 2 of the “Inkheart” series does not disappoint. Cornelia Funke returns to bring us a tale centered in the “Inkworld.” Dustfinger has been searching for another reader and he finds him in a strange man called Orpheus, or “Cheeseface” as Farid call him. Dustfinger and Farid are double-crossed by Orpheus and Farid has only one option, to get to the Inkworld to be with Dustfinger. In order to do that, he must find Meggie.

Full of sword and fire fights, Funke brings the Inkworld to life. Vivid passages describing the world and it’s folks as well as giving the reader an “inside” look at the characters of “Inkheart.” Excellent read. Now, I will have to pick up “Inkdeath” the final installment of the series!

I wonder if they will make this as a movie as well. I finally watched “Inkheart” last month at my brother’s house and it was pretty fun.
