Inkdeath (Inkheart, #3) by Cornelia Funke

Inkdeath (Inkheart, #3)

Title: Inkdeath
Author: Cornelia Funke
Published: October 2008
Pages: 663
ISBN: 9781905294718

Description: Ever since the extraordinary events of Inkspell, when the enchanted book Inkheart drew Meggie and her father, Mo, into its chapters, life in the Inkworld has been more tragic than magical. Dustfinger is dead, having sacrificed his life for his apprentice's, and now, under the rule of the evil Adderhead, the fairy-tale land is in bloody chaos, its characters far beyond the control of Fenoglio, their author. Facing the threat of eternal winter, Mo inks a dangerous deal with Death itself. There yet remains a faint hope of changing the cursed story—if only he can fills its pages fast enough.

I Give This Book 3.5 Stars!

After a so-so first book, a fantastic second one, I was not sure what to expect for the final book in the Inkheart trilogy. Honestly, it fell somewhere in the middle. It was still rich in descriptions. I really love the characters the author has created. And the story is such an original concept. But, at times this book was just too long. I found myself skimming areas just to get to the next set of adventures. I don't think we need long paragraphs about why or why not something is going to happen. At this point, we already know the characters and nothing was out of the ordinary. And it switched view points a lot. When you have so many characters that play important parts in the story and they are in so many different locations, the story gets overwhelming. There are still some fabulous parts of this book and it wraps up the story wonderfully. I'm sure it won't disappoint anyone who has enjoyed the series.


  1. I totally agree with you, the book was incredibly long and boring, but rich and good in some parts. I practically skimmed through the whole thing!

    The other books in the series are good though (Farik!!! ~hearts~)

  2. I've never read this series but I just might after reading your review.


I love comments!
