This is a great follow up to Inkheart. It's plot is more thrilling than the first and there are definitly more characters to keep track of. Inkspell doesn't try to imitate the first book, but instead takes the story in a new, interesting direction. Inkheart was a stand alone book that left the ideas to use in Inkspell. Inkspell is fascinating and well done. Dustfinger is more prominent, a worthy protagonist. This book really let's you dig into the hearts of the characters. Each one of them has a different personality with it's pros and cons which makes them interesting.
Cornelia Funke is great at making up villans the whole book is filled with them! Inkspell is wonderful! The characters, the names, the worlds, the stories within stories; everything about it is fantastic. There are names like Cheeseface, Clouddancer, and Her Ugliness. There’s fire honey that gives Dustfinger his ability to talk to fire, the glass men sharpen quills, there is an illuminator and descriptions of his art. This is a book after any book lover’s heart. Highly recommended and in breathless anticipation of the sequel.

I, like so many booklovers who read it, fell completely in love with it. Overall a fantastic read.

Cornelia Funke
“Stories never really end...even if the books like to pretend they do. Stories always go on. They don't end on the last page, any more than they begin on the first page.”
