Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of INKHEART, the book whose characters became real.

When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past. Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. But the story is threatening to evolve in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.

"Bequiling...skillful...the story seems to be sprinkled with some magical fairy dust." - The New York Times Book Review

Kirkus 9/1/05 One year after the events of Inkheart (2003), one by one, the characters find themselves read from the real world into the Inkworld. Dustfinger is ecstatic to be back home after his long exile; Meggie is thrilled to explore the story that has seduced her with its beauty; Mo and Resa want only to bring their daughter Meggie back. The metaliterary musings begun in the previous title become grander here, as each character grapples with the possibility of challenging the fate that has been written. Fenoglio, the author of the fictional Inkheart, takes on a tragic role, as he sees his godlike idyll threatened when his words and characters take on lives of their own. Woven in and around the breakneck adventure is the provocative notion that words, and the meanings they carry, are plastic and ever susceptible to change. While the permeability of the membrane between imagination and reality may form the base of the novel, Funke delivers more than enough action, romance, tragedy, villainy, and emotion to keep readers turning the pages- and waiitng for the sequel the cliffhanger promises. *STAR* INKSPELL, by Cornelia Funke (UNCORRECTED PROOF)- BOOKLIST Readers who enjoyed Funke''s Inkheart (2003) are in for a treat with this sequel, a stronger book than its predecessor. In the first volume of the trilogy, a few characters have the ability to "read" a character out of a book and into today''s world. In this book the process is reversed, and most of the earlier characters are transported to the magical, yet perilous and sometimes brutally violent land of the fictional book, also called Inkheart. Young Meggie has longed to visit that world, but once she travels there she realizes the consequences of her choice and the seeming impossibility of putting things right in either place. With the help Fenoglio, the book''s author, who now lives in the secondary world, she connives to turn events toward a good outcome. Though some readers will simply enjoy the adventure story, other will be intrigued by Fenoglio''s reflections on the impossibility of controlling what he has created. As before, the book''s flow shifts from one group of characters to another as the plot moves swiftly. An indispensable key to the many characters precedes the story. Readers will enjoy the many quotes at chapter headings from writers as diverse as Margaret Atwood, David A
