Life in theInkworld is dangerous, especially for Meggie and her parents whose lives are in mortal danger. Check out a review of Inkdeath, the final book in Cornelia Funke’s Inkworld Trilogy.

Dustfinger Bit the Dust

Dustfinger is dead. But Farid isn’t ready to say goodbye. So he and Meggie turn to Orpheus, a man who can bring Dustfinger back from the dead. But they soon discover that Orpheus has greedy, power-hungry intentions. He’ll do anything for fame and fortune, even break his promise to bring Dustfinger back.

Living in the Inkworld

Three months have passed since Meggie and her parents arrived in the Inkworld, and life hasn’t been easy. They live amongst a band of robbers who are always on the move. They’re trying to stay one step ahead of the Adderhead’s bloodthirsty soldiers who were sent to capture Mo.


Becoming the Bluejay

Everyone mistakes Mo for the Bluejay, a fictional robber who, according to stories, shares the exact same appearance as Mo. But lately, Meggie’s mother Resa has been noticing changes in Mo. He’s becoming the Bluejay, body and soul. He’s acting fearless and reckless just to play the part of the hero. And Resa desperately wants to leave the Inkworld before he winds up dead…or before he forgets who he truly is.


The White Book

Months ago, Mo bound a book for the Adderhead, one that would make him immortal. But now the book is falling apart, and so is the Adderhead. He’s sick and weak, and terrified of death. So he sent his soldiers to capture Mo and force him to bind a new book, one that will keep him alive and healthy forever. Mo knows that if he refuses to bind the book, the Adderhead will kill him. But if he agrees, will the wicked villain let him live?


The Bottom Line

Like Inkheart and Inkspell, Inkdeath is magical and bite-your-nails suspenseful. This book is jam packed with [kwlink 3131]life-threatening action and moral dilemmas. It’s sure to keep you on the edge of your chair to the very last page.


Inkdeath Rating: 5

    Twisted visions. Dirty lies. No one knows the truth. That lies deep inside. The pain you hide. All day and night. It burns you. Hurts you.  Slowly, Killing you. You hide it best you can. Smile and say it's okay. But really. It's another lie. Another smudge. Inside your mind. You smile though. Keeping hope. But every day. Second by second. It goes away. And at night. There is only despair. Tearing out your hair. You scream at yourself. Why?! Why are you this way?! But when morning comes. You will wash away. All the tears. And all the pain. The lies are dirty. But the truth is dirtier.

I mean your point is fraught with worse problems, but I'm hoping this can be the most relatable.
