Amazing! Inkspell is a great sequel to Inkheart.
In the first book, Inkheart, Meggie and Mo read characters out from a novel, Inkheart. And this time, we get to see Meggie, Mo, and her mother, Resa read themselves into the novel. How exciting is that!?
When Meggie found out that someone read Dustfinger back into the world of Inkheart, she was determined to follow him and Farid. They need to warn Dustfinger of what Basta and Mortola was about to do to them. And soon, with the help of Orpheus, Mo and Resa was now sucked into the book. Things have become out of hand. Now, Meggie seek for Fegnolio, the creator of Inkheart for help. Afterall, Fegnolio is the one who could save Meggie and her parents. But, things were not going to as what Meggie and Fegnolio planned when the characters and story get out of control, and refuse to listen to the creator.
There’s a little bit of Robin Hood references when Fegnolio decided to model Bluejay, after Robin Hood, who steals from the rich to give to the poor. When Fegnolio writes about Bluejay, he always imagined Mo as the character. So, when Mo was sucked into the world of Inkheart, everyone assumes him as the real Bluejay.
The world of Inkheart is somewhere I would very love to live in. There’s fairy, the black princes, the Wayless Wood, magic and everything. It sounded wonderful. The story is amazing. I love Meggie and her adventure along with Farid, Dustfinger and Fegnolio to save her parents, Mo and Resa. It was full of suspense! I love the little bit of romance between Farid and Meggie. The ending to the story was both exciting and sad.
I can’t wait to read the next book, Inkdeath to know what will happen to the characters next! I’m sure it is as exciting as Inkheart and Inkdeath.
Book Cover’s Description
THE BEST BOOKS NEVER END...
Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of Inkheart, the book whose characters came to life - and changed her life forever.
But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the original tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the magical ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval inkscape once more.
Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long both are caught inside the book, too. There they meet Inkheart's author, Fenoglio, now living within his own story. But the tale is much changed, and threatening to evolve in ways none of them could ever have imagined. Will Meggie, Farid, and Fenoglio manage to write the wrongs of a charmed world? Or is their story on the brink of a very bad ending?
