Cornelia Funke, the enormously talented author of the international best-seller THE THIEF LORD, brings readers another spellbinding tale of adventure and magic. Meggie lives a quiet life alone with her father, a book-binder. But her father has a deep secret— he posseses an extraordinary magical power. One day a mysterious stranger arrives who seems linked to her father’s past. Who is this sinister character and what does he want? Suddenly Meggie is involved in a breathless game of escape and intrigue as her father’s life is put in danger. Will she be able to save him in time?
I’ve loved every book I’ve read by Cornelia Funke thus far and Inkheart is no exception. It’s masterfully written, the premise is clever and delightful and the entire story is engaging and kept pulling me forward to find out what happens next.
