The masterful conclusion to the epic, award-winning, bestselling INKHEART trilogy by internationally acclaimed author Cornelia Funke.
The Adderhead--his immortality bound in a book by Meggie's father, Mo--has ordered his henchmen to plunder the villages. The peasants' only defense is a band of outlaws led by the Bluejay--Mo's fictitious double, whose identity he has reluctantly adopted. But the Book of Immortality is unraveling, and the Adderhead again fears the White Women of Death. To bring the renegade Bluejay back to repair the book, the Adderhead kidnaps all the children in the kingdom, dooming them to slavery in his silver mines unless Mo surrends. First Dustfinger, now Mo: Can anyone save this cursed story?

Cornelia Funke is the internationally acclaimed, bestselling author of The Thief Lord, Dragon Rider, and the Inkheart trilogy, along with many other chapter and picture books for younger readers. She lives in Los Angeles, California, in a house filled with books.From AudioFile:
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. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
