Man, I had forgotten so much about this book. I remembered the Adderhead to be sure, but not Firefox and Slasher... I'd forgotten entirely about the bulk of the Inkworld characters (including, I am sad to admit, Cosimo and a good deal of Resa's character.) I'm embarrassed that it all slipped my mind so easily.

Many complaints have been lodged about the relationship between Meggie and Farid, and I have to agree. It felt too rushed to me (couldn't it have been present a bit more in Inkheart if it was going to be such a large point in Inkspell?) I was tempted to rate this book four stars, especially due to Fegnolio and his... handling of things. The last act of the book however, with the Castle of Night, Fegnolio's plan ans how it all turns out... It redeemed it for me. I love the character's too much to downgrade this book based on some minor annoyances, and all in all it held up rather well in spite of how much I had forgotten.

Why on earth did I remember a glass man shattering? That didn't happen...
