Inkspell by Cornelia Funke
This second book of the Inkheart trilogy is set a year after the first book. Dustfinger and Farid have been wandering around while Meggie and her parents and Darius, have been living happily with Aunt Elinor. Meggie, having learned much about Inkworld from her mother, longs to read herself into the book. When Farid shows up and tells them that Basta and Mortola have had a man named Orpheus read Dustfinger into the book, leaving him behind, Farid asks Meggie to read him into the story so that he can warn Dustfinger and save him from Basta and Mortola. Meggie reads herself and Farid into the story and the adventure takes a dangerous turn. What is reality and what is the story? Why can't Fenoglio make his characters behave the way he wants them to? Can a writer bring a character back from the dead? Fantastic book and I look forward to reading hte last one!
