Meggie is the daughter of Mo who has been running away from Capricorn whom he read out of the book Inkheart with his magical power. In reading Capricorn out he also reads Dustfinger out, who warns him Capricorn on his trail. Meggie, Mo, and Dustfinger run away to Meggies Aunt Elinor. Elinor is very rich and owns hundreds of books.
When the house is attacked and Mo kidnapped no one knows why. Mo never told anyone about his gift. Basta takes Mo to Capricorns village to find out that the book Mo brought with him was not Inkheart. Dustfinger, knowing where Capricorns villages is, takes Meggie and Elinor there. When they get there Dustfinger betrays them and Meggie and Elinor are imprisoned. Meggie had brought the book with her and Capricorn takes it. Mo tells Meggie and Elinor about his gift. He tells them that it's not perfect, because when something comes out of a books something else goes in most of the time. When he read the characters out of Inkheart his wife and two cats went in. Capricorn makes him read and a boy named Farid comes out instead of the jewels Capricorn wanted. They escape with Farid but Meggie and the writer of Inkheart, Fenoglio, are caught and Capricorn soon realizes Meggie has inherited her fathers gifts. But her gift has no side affects.
Capricorn tries to force her to read an evil demon named The Shadow but she has other plans. Fenoglio wrote an alternate ending to Inkheart and she reads that instead.
Capricorn and all his men die except for Basta and his mother, Mortola. In the end Meggie, Mo, Elinor, Farid, and Dustfinger escape. But for some reason Fenoglio disappears into the book.
They all go back to Elinors house except for Dustfinger and Farid who stole the book to find another reader for Dustfinger. Allegory Alliteration Archetype Assonance Atmosphere Some books should be tasted
