Though I thought this was a suitable ending to the trilogy, I felt more distanced from the characters than I had been in the first or second books. I think this may be rooted in the fact that, though this is a children's/middle grade series, most of the POV characters are adults. In Inkheart, I felt pretty rooted in Meggie's perspective for the most part. This started to change more in Inkspell, but by Inkdeath we rarely get Meggie's perspective, and are more often hearing Mo's, Resa's, Orpheus's, or Dustfinger's perspectives. In part because there are so many POV's (I haven't counted, but I think it's around a dozen) and most of them are adults, it makes this feel a bit strange for a middle grade book. The story is certainly suitable for children, but the characters aren't themselves kids. In addition, the actual silvertongue magic is used less and less in the series, and that was a huge part of the appeal of the first book. All in all, I enjoyed it, but the first book will always be my favorite.

Inkdeath is the third book in the ink series. This is my second time reading my the series but I still have enjoyed the first (inkheart) and second book (inkspell). Inkdeath is full of surprises and and makes you fell a lot of emotions as you are reading it. But I wouldn't recoment this book for anyone who is not willing to read a supper long book as each book in the series is about 500,600,700 pages long. The first time I read the series I read it with a friend but she didn't enjoy the book as she said that there was way too much details, but I think it was fine. Over all I thought the ink series was awesome and a good series to read over the summer or if you are a really fast reader like me spring vacation and some of school (if you are willing to carry a really heavy book around).

I didn't read it. Ran out of time and there are too many other books I'd rather spend my free time reading.

The amount of detail and information, while nice to read, lost me way too quickly. I recommend having read the first and second books just a bit before and no longer because there is a LOT of content and characters. Some I know say that this was a great fabulous ending to an amazing series, while I have had people squint and either have never heard of it or ask if what I am asking is the same as what they read. Personally, I am a bit indifferent at this point because it may have been a good book, but I just couldn't flow with it. 2.5/5 stars

While the story is entertaining there is way too much swearing; I'm appalled that a children's writer would deliberately use offensive language in a children's book.

I love hoe clever Meg is and comes up with a way to trap the Adderead, save her parents and the slaves and little children.

All good series must come to an end. This is well crafted story with a suspenseful conclusion. If you read the first two you already know this one will be fun.
