The second book in Cornelia Funke’s internationally celebrated trilogy – magical, thrilling and mesmerising.
‘I don’t think I’ve ever read anything that conveys so well the joys, terrors and pitfalls of reading’ Diana Wynne Jones on Inkheart
Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of the extraordinary events of Inkheart, and the story whose characters strode out of the pages, and changed her life for ever. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater, torn from his world of words, the need to return has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the magical ability to read him back, he sets in motion a dangerous reversal that sees the characters of Inkheart transported to a charmed Inkworld, about to be fought over by rival rebels and princes.
