Funk, Cornelia. Inkdeath [#3]

Funke, Cornelia. Inkdeath [Inkheart #3]. Chicken House/Scholastic, 2007 [978-0-439-86628-6 // 0-439-86628-6]
In this third book of the trilogy we once again return to the world inside of the book Inkheart. Evil in the form of Adderhead has taken over the world and people are in constant fear. Dustfinger, the fire-eater, is dead trying to save his apprentice, Farid. Elinor has been left behind in the real world and thinks her entire family is now dead. Mo, as Bluebird, becomes a hero to the people and he makes a deal with the White Women of death to try and save the people. Mo's daughter Meggie continues to believe in her father. This 682 is a heavy read... there are so many characters living in two separate worlds. I didn't realize until I was done, that there is a glossary at the end helping the reader. There reader is brought back and forth between two story-lines in the book world and the one story-line back in the real world. Good readers who enjoyed the first two in the series, will live through the slow beginning of this book to the exciting conclusion. A movie will be released this month (January 2009) and you can see clips on youtube. Although I have enjoyed this series, I have not had much interest in them.. but with the movie out now....who knows.
