The second book in Cornelia Funke's internationally celebrated
trilogy - magical, thrilling and mesmerising.
don't think I've ever read anything that conveys so well the
joys, terrors and pitfalls of reading' Diana Wynne Jones
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.
