THIS IS THE SEQUAL TO INKHEART….A book which has 675 pages that drive us through an extraordinary world .This is one of the longest book I have read. Inkspell is written by Cornella Funke in German.
Inkspell is a 2005 young adult fantasy novel by Cornelia Funke. It was named the 2006 ‘Book Sense Book of the Year’ in the Children’s Literature category.
Dustfinger finds a man who can read him back into his world and Meggie reads herself and Her friend Farid into Inkheart .Her parents follow her. Meggie’s father is thought to be a mysterious villain called “Bluejay”. Bluejay was being hunted for treason. They have many adventures that are scary .This book leads us through a magical world of myths; that too in contemporary style. Inkspell is definitely better than Inkheart, by far. This book is better than inkheart in some ways. It has more in terms of characters and feel. However, as with the first, there are some swear words. There is more violence, and many people die. But comparing with Harry Potter series this novel is mild in narrative.
I recommend this book for students. Grown ups would like it too. It made me feel a bit worried while reading it, in case it ended on a cliff hanger.
