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!
Conner has been sent on a school trip to Germany with the girl he has a crush on and a few others though what they get from the unveiling of the lost Brothers Grimm Stories is not what Conner’s hoped for. Now he and Alex must save the fairy-tale world. Connor was getting along pretty nicely in the Otherworld, and Alex was doing great with her training.
Alex was about to have her welcoming ball; Connor was going on a trip to Germany. A problem comes up in both worlds, The Fairy Tale World and The Otherworld: The 200 years have passed and the French soldiers are ready to take over to The Fairy Tale World. When Connor opens the portal, the soldiers come.
After book two, Connor and Alex Bailey are reunited once again in book three of Chris Colfer’s Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning to fight the greater enemy, Napoleon’s army. After two hundred years of being trapped in a portal by the Fairy God Mother, they must find a way to protect their homeland and defeat Napoleon’s army.
I read this book because I really loved the first two. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy & Adventure.
