Publisher's Summary

The Adderhead - his immortality bound in a book by Meggie's father, Mo - has ordered his henchmen to plunder the villages. The peasants' only defense is a band of outlaws led by the Bluejay - Mo's fictitious double, whose identity he has reluctantly adopted. But the Book of Immortality is unraveling, and the Adderhead again fears the White Women of Death. To bring the renegade Bluejay back to repair the book, the Adderhead kidnaps all the children in the kingdom, dooming them to slavery in his silver mines unless Mo surrenders. First Dustfinger, now Mo: Can anyone save this cursed story?

My most liked fiction book series ever!

im a 39 year old male with 2 children ages 7 and 12 Who is used to books by Stephan King and Dean Koontz but was blown away with this series! It is a GREAT series just simply a great series! I have no problem with My 12 year old reading it but My 7 year old is too young for some of the things that happen in the story, but dont get Me wrong it is not tacky but the part's in question talks a little about a bad king and His Love of torture! But all in all I approve. Note: the book's only bad language in the series is the aunt says d@m* a few times and I think maybe the word sometimes used for butt was used once! Again it is a Great book series, but start with the first book!

Whole lotta Bad Guys

The narrator is superb, once he gets comfortable. My only complaint is about the story: an awful lot of torture, darkness and despair. I almost gave up at one point, not sure I could trust Cornelia Funke. But it did turn and the narrator does such a great job with the Adderhead.
