Oh I didn't really like that book. I remember loving the first book in the trilogy and then reading the next one and already skipping a few pages. But with this one the beginning was already so boring that I skipped so many pages and then I just didn't feel like continuing anymore which is pretty sad because I liked the series so far. ( )

I kept chugging along through all three volumes of this story on the recommendation of a friend, hoping to get involved, hoping to like the characters, hoping to become engaged their story and lives.

Couldn't do it.

Inkdeath, by Cornelia Funke is the third book in the Inkheart trilogy. This book honestly has the most interesting plot I've ever heard of, yet it is so repetitive and predictable! It is a very long, 600+ page story that involves tragedy after tragedy, followed by another tragedy. Meggie and her family are sent into the Inkworld by her or her father reading out of the book Inkheart, where there's magic, poverty, and people who can control fire. The characters face Death, disaster, and broken hearts. When the Adderhead is bound a book of immortality, Meggie and her father, now known as the Bluejay, are faced with several dangers.
This book, like I said, had an interesting plot, but was extremely repetitive and got boring quickly into this book. I had gotten the same sort of tragedy after tragedy pattern in the first two books, and Inkdeath was nothing different.
Although I loved the outcome and it was very clever, I disliked all the sadness expressed within this trilogy. I also disliked how everything good that happened always had a catch- then something bad would happen because of it.
I recommend this trilogy to dedicated, advanced readers. There are many parts of the trilogy that are hard to follow, and many people may drop this trilogy due to the author's slow start on the first and second books. I also recommend it to people who love to read about suffering people who die.

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.

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?
