Inkspell, Quotes

I'm falling in love all over again with Inkspell...  I can't believe I went a year and a half without reading it.  This is my third time, and it's just as good as the first time, if not better.  I'm finding myself in a world of words, summoned as Meggie was into the ink.  It's a powerful book, just like its companions.

And now, for my quote:
He turned, pushed aside Darius, who was standing there in the open doorway with a sad, owl-like gaze, and went to his study, where those damned notebooks were still stacked among his own papers.  He swept them off the desk one by one, as if he could silence the words that way - all the accursed words that had bewitched his child, luring her away like the Pied Piper in the story, to a place where he had already been unable to follow Resa.  Mo felt as if he were dreaming the same nightmare all over again, but this time he didn't even have a book whose pages he could have searched for Meggie.

Chapter 11, page 114

It's coming back...  My third time reading this book, and all of the feelings, the emotions and gripping vortex's that sucked me in last time, are coming back.  Read this:
"Who said anything about bringing her back?"  Mortola's narrow lips twisted into a joyless smile.  "Do you think I intend to stay in this stupid world of yours any longer now that I have the book?  Why should I?  No, I'm going to look for your daughter in my own world, where Basta will catch her like a little bird.  And then I'll give the two of you to my son as a present.  There'll be more festivities, Silvertongue, but this time Capricorn will not die.  Oh no.  He'll sit beside me and hold my hand while Death takes first your daughter, and then you.  Yes, that's how it will be!"

Chapter 17, page 164

GAH!  Ok.  Do I need to say anything else?  Even before my review, I want to scream, GO READ THIS BOOK!!!  (Read Inkheart first, but that one is wonderful as well!!!)

Happy reading!!! :)

[...] February 26, 2011 Inkspell by Cornelia Funke If you haven’t read Inkheart yet, but want to, I’d HIGHLY recommend it.  You can read my review here.  Inkheart is the first book in the trilogy and you won’t understand anything that’s going on in Inkspell if you haven’t read it.   Also, if you’d like to read some quotes from Inkspell, you can read them:  here  and  here.
