In the third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series by Chris Colfer, the Brothers Grimm have a warning for the Land of Stories.

Conner 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, Conner 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 must bring two worlds together!

Gr 4 Up—This delightful installment brings listeners back into Colfer's (The Enchantress Returns) unique fairy tale realm with twins Conner and Alex Bailey. Alex has settled into her training as a fairy godmother, while Conner is forced to work his way through school trying to be "normal," which is very difficult when you have fairy blood. When brand-new Brothers Grimm tales are discovered in Germany, Conner's interest is piqued. It's lucky that his class is heading there on a field trip, even luckier that his crush, Bree, is going as well. As the Grimms' tales are read, Conner realizes these stories are warnings about events that'll happen 200 years in the future—which is TODAY. Frantic, Conner must find a way back to the Land of Stories to warn his sister and grandmother of impending doom. Colfer narrates his tale with ease, creating the illusion of more than one voice. Familiarity with previous installments is not completely necessary to follow the story; however, listeners will most likely want to hear the first two and will definitely be clamoring for the fourth due to the epic cliff-hanger. A great choice for fantasy and fractured fairy tales enthusiasts.—Amanda Schiavulli, Finger Lakes Library System, NY

I am so excited for this to come out and I hope they never end! After reading the first and second the books are constantly in my mind. My curiosity and envy of the characters are always growing. I have always had trouble thinking of my favorite books because there are so many amazing ones but after reading the first two of the books I know what it is. Personally though I believe the first one may have been slightly better because the second one was eerier but still fantastic. This is a series that I will remember till the day I die. It is too perfect. I recomend this book to anyone willing. It was so good I read in a day and a half eventhrough its size. This series is better than anything else! I would do so much to be in the Land of Stories for a day. I love this book and not just because of the author. This book was on my wishlist before I noticed that it was written by an actor in my favorite tv show. This series was solid gold perfection and the best thing in the world. My words don't do it justice. This is the best series ever!!!

I bought the first 2 books for my 10 year old daughter for her bday.  She LOVED them!  She breezed thru both books in a matter of days.  I bought her the 3rd book and she finished THAT in 2 days.  She's eagerly awaiting the release of the next book.  EXCELLENT SERIES!!  From a very picky reader who will put a book down if it doesn't excite her within the first few pages, these books are fantastic!

if the masked man is alex and conner's dad...he pretended to die and come to the fairy tale world undetected, fell in love with little bo peep(huh?), had a child, attempted robbery of his mother, aka the fairy godmother, and stopped loving his family by what i read. so confusing! he tries to rob and kill his mother, leaves his children and wife- what's wrong with him?! I need a 4th book right NOW!

Review: 1. An examination with a view to amendment or improvement; revision; as, an author's review of his works. 2. A critical examination of a publication, with remarks; a criticism; a critique. Not to give away the ending. I'm glad I read the book before I came on here to see what others thought of the book. If you have read the series then this book is a must read, and if you haven't read it yet then you should start now. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves all things fairytales. This book brings you around the world, and then to a world you would never imagine. There are new characters introduced to the story. Villains, heroes, crushes, and some that just want an adventure, but they all make up the details to this story. It's a read that will make you laugh, cry, make you angry, and even say oh my, and will keep you reading till the very end. Hope everyone enjoys the book as much as I did!

This book was amazing! It really suprises you. It has a huge cliffhanger and EVIL arrises which over whelms Alex. She finally knows how Ezmia felt and she learns magic. This will make you sad at at some points, but it's still amazing.

I literally just finished this book, and am pleased with it and excited to get my hands on Beyond the Kingdoms. To anyone wondering, in my opinion it's as equally awesome as the first two, with a sad yet epic ending. Try not to venture too far in the reviews if you don't want spoilers...
