The conclusion to the Inkworld trilogy, I'd been looking forward to this book for a long time, after I really liked the first to books.

Luckily, this book didn't disappoint! It was still very nice to read, I still like the idea and especially the characters (although I really missed my favourite one). It felt like a good ending to the series, although I liked the first two books best...

Overall, I think this is a very nice series probably best for ages around 12. It's one of those series where you can just feel how much the author loves books. ( )

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 am the tide that moves the moon.
I am the stream that halts the sand.

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.

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?
