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.
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...
