I have just finished the second book of Inkheart Trilogy, Inkspell.
In this book, the main characters are transported to the story itself, the Inkworld. However, much to their surprise, everything has changed. It seems that the printed words no longer hold the story. They are just plain, dead words. Inkworld has become a more sinister place for everyone.
This book has a darker story than the first one. For me, reading this was like a long, winding journey. It left me wondering if the story would really be as black as ink in the third book, or if I could finally reach a happy ending.
I actually took a break from reading the third book, Inkdeath. This second book made me mentally and emotionally exhausted. I must prepare for the third one.

They say reading could make us escape into another world. Wouldn't it be more fun if we could bring the characters out? That exactly is what the book Inkheart is all about. By reading out loud, Mo and his daughter, Meggie, could summon different characters out of their printed pages.

However, malevolent characters have slipped out of the book! Now, Mo and Meggie must find a way to win against this evil force of Capricorn and turn things around with the power of their voices.
Reading this book makes me wish I could also conjure characters out of books. Thanks goodness for its movie I learned about this book.
I’m now on the second book. I just hope that the story of Mo, Meggie, Resa, Elinor, Dustfinger, Farid, and Gwin would have a happy ending at the end of this trilogy.
