Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Cornelia Funke’s acclaimed Inkheart trilogy, whilst rooted in the real world, sweeps beyond words to the Inkworld, a richly imagined parallel place that is the stuff of classic fairy tales that rivals Tolkien in its mastery. Inkdeath is a magnificently fast-moving tale that will see wrongs of the past put right in a tumultuous conclusion that will surprise and leave you in awe and wonder. In addition to being available in this paperback edition, it is also available in a wonderful slipcased package and in hardback. The first two in the trilogy, Inkheart and Inkspell are also available in paperback.
A message from the author:Inkdeath came to life in my new home in Los Angeles. For the first time I had enough room to put up all the photographs and paintings that inspired me to write. Hundreds of notes with ideas and plot points covered my bookshelves, and in front of the windows my son played. When I sat down to write the first chapter, it felt like meeting up with very old friends and soon Inkdeath became as great a writing adventure as Inkheart and Inkspell.

SynopsisInkdeath: Inkheart 3 by Cornelia Funke
Life in the Inkworld has been far from easy since the extraordinary events of Inkspell, when the story of Inkheart magically drew Meggie, Mo and Dustfinger back into its pages.
With Dustfinger dead, and the evil Adderhead now in control, the story in which they are all caught has taken an unhappy turn. Even Elinor, left alone in the real world, believes her family to be lost - lost between the covers of a book.
But as winter comes on there is reason to hope - if only Meggie and Mo can rewrite the wrongs of the past and make a dangerous deal with death...

About The Author
Cornelia Funke is the New York Times bestselling author of the INKHEART trilogy, THE THIEF LORD and a whole host of popular children's novels and picture books.
Born in 1958 in the German town of Dorsten, Cornelia initially worked as an illustrator but soon began writing her own stories. She quickly established her reputation as one of Germany's best loved children's authors with her series Gespensterjäger (Ghosthunters) and the Wilden Hühner (the first two books of which series are published in the UK as C.H.I.X. THE SUMMER GANG and C.H.I.X. THE NEW GIRL).
Her international break-through came with the fantasy novel DRAGON RIDER, which spent 78 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Success continued with the publication of THE THIEF LORD, which immediately climbed to the #2 spot on the New York Times bestseller list and stayed there for 19 weeks, selling 1.5 million copies.
INKHEART, the first book in the INKHEART trilogy, followed, winning the 2004 BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature Award. INKSPELL continued the trilogy's success, winning a second BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature Award in 2006. The trilogy concluded with INKDEATH, in 2008. INKHEART the movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in the same year.
RECKLESS (first published in hardback in 2010) marked the start of Funke's exciting new Mirrorworld series, and is followed by FEARLESS this January (2013), along with a reissue of RECKLESS.
Cornelia Funke now lives in California in the USA.'
