Description

Caught between the covers of a cursed story. 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 fill its pages fast enough. Inkdeath-the captivating final tale in the Inkheart trilogy.

Professional reviews

"Listeners new to Funke's trilogy, who might be overwhelmed by this hefty book's dizzying number of characters and their extensive history, will be particularly grateful to narrator Allan Corduner, who does an admirable job leading them through the story. At the trilogy's heart is Funke's premise that certain people have the magical ability to bring characters from books alive by reading aloud. With meticulous pacing and deep insight into the story, Corduner sets listeners at ease while drawing them into the world of Funke's story-within-a-story. His particular flair for dramatizing exchanges between characters is of great use, as much of the plot is carried on through dialogue. Corduner's bright, artful distinctions between the many voices help listeners keep confusion at bay. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
