The Brothers Grimm have a warning for the Land of Stories.
Connor Bailey thinks his fairy-tale adventures are behind him – until he discovers a mysterious clue left by the famous Brothers Grimm. With help from his classmate Bree and the outlandish Mother Goose, Conner sets off on a mission across Europe to crack a two-hundred-year-old code.
Meanwhile, Alex Bailey is training to become the next Fairy Godmother… but her attempts at granting wishes never go as planned. Will she ever be truly ready to lead the Fairy Council?
When all signs point to disaster for the Land of Stories, Connor and Alex must join forces with their friends and enemies to save the day. But nothing can prepare them for the coming battle… or for the secret that will change the twins’ lives forever.
The third book in the bestselling Land of Stories series puts the twins to the test as they bring two worlds together!
* from Goodreads
At beginning of this summer, I started reading the Land of Stories series thinking it would be like all of the other popular young adult novels that I couldn’t read more than a chapter of. And, when I finished the first book in hours I assumed that it was a fluke. Then, I couldn’t put down The Enchantress Returns. As I read A Grimm Warning it occurred to me that this author had managed to do what so many had failed, he found me and amazing set of adventure stories that all readers will love!
I absolutely could not put down A Grimm Warning. From the moment I picked it up I was wrapped in a story I didn’t want to leave. The best part for me was that so much of the story was about Connor and that was so much fun because he deserved a chance to be the hero.
I loved everything about A Grimm Warning… except the end. There’s a cliff-hanger that thoroughly irked me… Guess I’ll be reading Beyond the Kingdoms earlier than I’d anticipated.
