Funke, Cornelia. Inkspell

Funke, Cornelia. Inkspell. Scholastic, 2005 [0-439-55400-4]
WOW..I think this sequel to Inkheart is better than the first! We are back with Meggie, her family and friends in a place where certain people who read out loud from a story will transfer characters from the story to this life and back and forth. Now Meggie, her mother, father, Dustfinger are back within the story along with the original author of the story. The author notices the story (and world they are in) is changing from what he has written. He starts writing new sections of the story having a "reader" read it. This unfortunately changes things not quite as he imagined them. Meanwhile back on the real world, Elinor is being held captive in her house by some characters who have come out of the book. It is all much to complicated to explain here. All I can say is that this 635 book paints an incredible picture of two worlds wrapped up in a fantasy situation. It is a "meaty" read which took me a long time to get through and the writing is beautiful (even though it is translated) but don't miss this series.
