Book Review: Inkspell by Cornelia Funke

Inkspellis the sequel to Inkheart and follows the continuing story of Meggie, Mo, and the characters from the book-within-a-book Inkheart. When Mo and Resa are taken to the Inkheart world by force, Meggie finds that she must read herself in too. She longs not only for her father and mother, but also to see this beautiful world full of fairies and glass men. But, the world is also filled with ugly horrors and the Inkworld seems to have taken on a life of its own. Even Fenoglio, its author, finds things don't go according to plan when he writes amendments and additions to his tale. Mo becomes caught up acting as a dangerous character, the Bluejay, written with him as the inspiration. He and his daughter must think and act quickly if they are to survive this dangerous place to return home again.

Inkspell (Inkheart)

I really was disappointed with this sequel. It didn't have as much adventure and heart as the first one. The story seemed to lag and drag a lot (it should have been a lot shorter too). I suppose, as a middle book in a trilogy, it has to be the least likable. But, I found that I lost interest during parts and grew bored.

s-factor: !@#

More language than it should have.

mrg-factor: none

v-factor: ->
There are some pretty scary and violent things that happen.

Overall rating: ***
