Readers should care for the characters, whether it is a hope that they will succeed or meet justified ends. By the time this story ends, who cares? At the end of this book three, it is "kick the trilogy out the door and don't come back!" Another rule of writing is that characters change. They change for the good or for the bad.But they don't remain their whining little selves throughout an entire trilogy.
Cornelia should also get rid of those stupid and non-consequential book quotes that preceded each chapter.
Picking up where "Inkspell" left off, Meggie and her family are living within the magical fictional world of the novel Inkheart. But all is not well within its pages, as her father Mo has fully assumed the identity of the Bluejay (a Robin Hood like character) which makes him the target of the Adderhead. For even though Mo bound the White Book to make the Adderhead immortal, the book is working as Mo intended it to, not as the Adderhead wishes, and now the king is out for revenge on the man who is slowly killing him. As Mo's life becomes ever more in danger, he places the lives of his friends and families, and indeed all the children of Ombra, at risk as well. Meggie desperately tries to find a way to fix what has gone wrong with the story, but Fengolio has lost his way with words and cannot write anything. And would it even work if he could, for Meggie and Mo are uncertain what is real and what is an illusion inside this world made of words.
"Inkdeath" seems much more grown up than the previous two works as Funke grapples with some serious issues, questioning just how much we can control our own fate. The beautiful thing about Funke's writing is that it pays homage to the wonderful children's literature that has come before it and draws upon a wide array of fairy tale and fantasy elements. At times the plotting seems disjointed and keeping track of the huge cast of characters can be difficult without Funke's A-Z listing at the end of the book. However, "Inkdeath" is a fitting conclusion for the fantastical events begun in "Inkheart". It is a truly unique and magical tale that lives beyond the page.
