    An amazing book filled with imagination and adventure, the power all readers secretly think they have, to read things to life. It seems that all of Cornelia Funke’s books are just awesome. the finale to a brilliant trilogy.

    I was hooked onto this book, I just couldn’t tell what was going to happen next! Definitely recommend the whole trilogy to an avid reader as they are all truly amazing. But it is confusing, so re-reading some bits is necessary to get the grasp of the story. Truly a 5* book.
