Inkworld, then you've got a major treat to look forward to in October: Inkdeath, the final installment of Cornelia Funke's Ink-Trilogy! Completing the story set in motion in Inkheart and continued in Inkspell, the third Ink-Trilogy book will reveal the fates of Meggie, Mo, Dustfinger, Farid, and all your favorite characters from the infamous book within a book.
Not that we had to tell YOU about that — from what we've seen on the message boards, it's obvious that all you Funke fans have spent more than a little time imagining what lies in store after Inkspell.
And what exactly does the next book have in store? Well, I was lucky enough to read an advance copy, but I'm forbidden to say. Like voiceless Resa, my lips are sealed. Except I will say this: Inkdeath is GOOD!
Jealous? Don't be! Here's an exclusive look at the first chapter (PDF)! Give it a read and then tell everyone what YOU think will happen next!
