The White Women took Dustfinger away and the Adderhead is immortal. Inkworld is getting even darker. Under the cover of the Black Forest, the Bluejay and his men fight to free Ombra.
Life in the Inkworld has been far from easy since the extraordinary events of Inkspell, when the book Inkheart magically drew Meggie, Mo and Dustfinger back into its pages.
With Dustfinger dead, and the evil Adderhead now in control, the story in which they are all caught has taken an unhappy turn. Even Elinor, left alone in the real world, believes her family to be lost between the covers of a book.
But as winter comes on there is reason to hope – if only Meggie and Mo can rewrite the wrongs of the past and make a dangerous pact with death.
This is the third book of the Ink-trilogy, and the story will begin about 8 weeks after Inkspell ended.
You will meet many of the characters you know by now, Mo and Meggie, Resa and Farid, Elinor and Darius, Fenoglio and, yes, you will also meet Dustfinger again and Roxane and the martens. The Black Prince will be back and many of the other robbers.
You will get to know the Strong Man's brother Doria and the Adderhead's brother in law, whom the widows of Ombra call the Milksop.
Violante and Orpheus will play a big part this time and there will be some others of course, new and old places and hopefully as much adventure, as you want to find on the pages!
