Book Review: Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke

Inkdeathis the thrilling conclusion of the Inkheart trilogy (first two books are Inkheart and Inkspell). As Mo becomes more and more the part of the Bluejay, Meggie and Resa struggle with their fears for his life. The stakes are raised higher when the evil king Adderhead demands the Bluejay in exchange for hundreds of kidnapped children. Mo gives himself up to save them, but will he be able to save himself? And will Mo, Meggie, and Resa ever decide to return to their own world?

Inkdeath (Inkheart Trilogy)

I liked the final volume a lot more than the second one. The story was interesting again and kept me turning pages, wanting to know what happened. I think it could have been shortened a lot and still been a fantastic story - really, the length almost detracted from the excitement. I found it exhausting at times trying to keep up with all the complex story lines, but I still loved it.

s-factor: !@

Too many for a children's book.

mrg-factor: none.

v-factor: ->->
Some of the violence was pretty scary for young kids.

Overall rating: ****


  1. I don't know why they have to put swearing in children's books. (Or adult books for that matter.)


Love it when you comment!
