- Seiten der Welt tells the story of a world ruled by the love for books – and by their magic
- A novel on a level with "The Neverending Story", "Inkheart", and "The Shadow of the Wind"

"While she was running down the stairs to the library, Furia could already smell the stories: the best smell in the world.” Furia lives in a world of books. The country estate of her family is situated on top of an endless library. Eagerly, she is awaiting her soul book – to unleash the magic of words with its help. Then, however, her brother is kidnapped and Furia has to fight for his life. Her path leads her to the city of the disappeared bookshops and to a forest in which trees grow from dead books. She meets Cat, who can “get anything for you”, and Finnian, the rebel. Together they go to war – against the rulers of bibliomancy and the de-writing of all books.
