Cornelia Funke is the author and has also written Dragon Rider, The Thief Lord, and Inkheart.

This book is a sequel to Inkheart, and it is even more engaging. Meggie, Mo(her father), and Resa (her mother) and a number of other characters are read back into the original story. Dustfinger, the fire-dancer, has been so desperate to get back to the story he came from that he take drastic steps to get there. Then curious Meggie reads herself and the boy from another story, who has a crush on her, Farid, into the book. Once they all get back to Inkworld they find the story has taken on a life of its own. Mo is injured by an enemy in the story. The rest of the book is trying to save Mo and create a happy ending to this story gone wrong.

This is not a book that you can read, then put down and come back several days later. You need to continue reading so you can keep the happenings clear in your mind. Most of the chapters are short.
