Inkspell by Cornelia Fluke
Book 2 in the Inkheart Series, Inkspell by Cornelia Fluke.
Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of INKHEART, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past. Distraught, Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too. But the story is threatening to evolve in ways neither of them could ever have imagined.
I love this series, maybe its because of the book theme, or I've gotten close to the characters and seem to know them so well. There was a couple times where I felt it dragged on a little, but that didn't happen enough to make me stop reading. Fluke has a way of writing thats makes one feel the emotion that takes place in her stories. I have read some of her other books and can say she is one of my favorite authors.
I enjoyed the Inkheart movie, though it was changed a fair bit from the book, I don't know if they will be making the second or third book, it would be interesting if they did.
