Of course, it's that sort of earnest, almost gushing veneration of books and book-loving that made the absorbing suspense-fantasy Inkheart so wonderful in the first place, with that lit-affection getting woven integrally into the plot (Inkheart being both Funke's first book in the series, and the fictitious book within that book, authored by the frustrated Fenoglio, now trapped within the book, er, within the book. Fenoglio, perhaps not surprisingly, self-referentially wishes in Inkspell that he had written a sequel to Inkheart.) Inkspell should serve as a special treat for fans of the first book, as characters from Inkheart who have found themselves in the "real world" (if there is such a thing) find themselves read back into their own mythic, word-spun world--along with some of our favorite "real-world" characters. As with the previous book, Funke's greatest accomplishment here is telling such a rich and involving (and fun!) story, while still managing sweet, subtle commentary on the nature of words and meaning. Expect a tantalizing finale, too--as Funke says, "No reader will forgive me the ending, though, without a part three." (Ages 8 and up) --Paul Hughes --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Great book! I loved this book and the other 2 in the trilogy. Cornelia Funke creates a neat word and the book is hard to put down.Published 5 days ago by Cassady

Fun continuation of the series. I read Inkheart with my daughter for school, but have continued through the series on my own since she has other things to read. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Karenlev
I have read Ink Heart and loved it but when I read Ink Spell I loved that too! Though the book was a little dry in the beginning the story picked up and I would recommend it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Laura Benn
