Thief Lord and Cornelia Funke
Was a completely enchanting story- however I did not think it would go the direction it went in. That was good but I can see why a person would be disappointed in the ending...I thought that there should have been more on Prosper, I feel that I never really got to know him. Loved the characters Victor and Ida. They were interesting and charming and I think they enlightened the story. Cornelia Funke is a fabulous author- Inkheart and Inkspell are her best works. Did not enjoy Dragon Rider too much - would not recommend that. I would like to see a sequel to Thief Lord and a brand new series. I give Thief Lord a five out of five.Good book!

P.S. Did u know that the book was originally written in German? I recently found that out. You might have known already though.

I loved it so much! This book is as good as Harry Potter. I think Funke should make a series. Riccio is hilarious,Prop is so sweet, Scip is adventerous, Bo is so hypnotizing. This book is great I recommend it! I seen the movie too, it followed the book really well.

This book was my absolute favorite book in the world!
I could read this book over and over and never get tired of its wonders.
It was so mysterious and wonderous and just jumped out to grab me and hook me like a fish.
The description realy came alive and came to and put on a play in your mind!
This book really takes you in by the pages after each other one is finished.
