Huzzah! This garbage is over! No more self-aggrandizing mediocrity! Some fantasy novels come to a grand and glorious climax - epic battle scenes. Some fantasy novels contain mysteries that unwrap like a year-round Christmas present. This particular piece of *cough* fantasy, fizzled out like a roman candle doused prematurely in water. ( )

This book is very intense but is a great read for anyone into mystery or even humor. ( )

Anyone who has ever written a story knows that it can take on a life of its own and go places the author never consciously intended. In this, the third book of the Inkheart trilogy, things have really gotten out of hand. Attempts by the author to 'fix' the plot on the fly seldom work quite as he expects. And the people, both 'real' and 'fictional' who live in the author's world, are plagued by all sorts of strange things, including people who can't reliably be counted on to stay dead if a writer wants them back again. It's certainly an engaging story, although it's a bit darker and the prose is too 'purple' for my personal taste. It's also quite long (663 pages) for the young audience for which it's obviously intended. Still, it's a good read, and except for letting a couple of the bad guys disappear at the end, it provides a decent conclusion. ( )

I am the song that sings the bird.
I am the leaf that grows the land.
I am the tide that moves the moon.
I am the stream that halts the sand.
I am the cloud that drives the storm.
I am the earth that lights the sun.
I am the fire that strikes the stone.
I am the clay that shapes the hand.
I am the word that speaks the man.
--Charles Causely, "I am the Song."
To Rolf, always -- it was the best of things to be married to Dustfinger.

To Ileen, who knows all about loss and was always there to understand and ease the pain.

To Andrew, Angie, Antonia, Cam and James, Caroline, Elinor, and last but for sure not least, Lionel and Oliver, who all brought so much light, warmth, and true friendship to dark days.

And to the City of Angels, which fed me with beauty and wilderness and with the feeling that I had found my Inkworld.

Moonlight fell on Elinor's bathrobe, her nightdress, her bare feet, and the dog lying in front of them.

The masterful conclusion to the epic, award-winning, bestselling INKHEART trilogy by internationally acclaimed author Cornelia Funke.

The Adderhead--his immortality bound in a book by Meggie's father, Mo--has ordered his henchmen to plunder the villages. The peasants' only defense is a band of outlaws led by the Bluejay--Mo's fictitious double, whose identity he has reluctantly adopted. But the Book of Immortality is unraveling, and the Adderhead again fears the White Women of Death. To bring the renegade Bluejay back to repair the book, the Adderhead kidnaps all the children in the kingdom, dooming them to slavery in his silver mines unless Mo surrends. First Dustfinger, now Mo: Can anyone save this cursed story?
