I wonder if there is going to be another book. This book was amazing! My only complaint is that that the book is way to short.

Author Name : Chris Colfer Book Series : Land of Stories Book Number : Five Rating : Five Stars! SUMMARY__________________________________________________ Alex and Conner must come up with a army to fight their Uncle's Literary one. They go inside Conner's short stories to recruit the characters for their own army. But on the way, the twins learn secrets about themselves and their family. Tradgey strikes. Emmerich is kidnapped by Morina as a hostage, and Lloyd finds out about him. He kidnaps Emmerich and Bree, the goes to the Otherworld, and kidnaps Charrlotte. You can read the book to find out what happens next. WHAT I DID'NT LIKE________________________________________ (SPOILERS MAY APPEAR!) Alex is ruled by hate and anger at the end of the book, and in this book, his writing didn't come as smoothly as his other books. At times, it seemed choppy. OVERALL____________________________________________________ Overall, it was an excellent book. There was a plot, storyline, and action. Chris Colfer is amazing. Long Live Land of Stories!

{I am actually planning on doing oncept albums of sorts of books that I like. I am starting on The Land of Stories, with only one song even close to finished. I wanted to see what you guys thought of the one song, which I am currently calling 'Goldilocks, Wanted Dead or Alive.' It's obviously sung by Goldilocks as of right now, and it so far is giving her basic history. It's not complete yet, and may need some work. -Kai517}<p>I was fairly young<p>Fairly recognizable<p>When someone took a risk<p>That most would just call sizable<p>I received a letter<p>Supposedly from Jack<p>Telling me to meet<p>Before the bears came back<p>Thinking I was early<p>I took some liberties<p>I ate, I sat, I slept<p>Choosing as I pleased<p>Jack never came<p>When the bears arrived<p>I was chased right out<p>Ran off so I could survive<p>A cold, hard truth<p>I spent life on the run<p>At my expense<p>Someone had their fun<p>{Chorus}<p>So now I'm<p>Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive<p>Dodging all authorities<p>Struggling to survive<p>During my spare time<p>To keep from being bored<p>Got a horse named Porridge<p>Taught myself some sword<p>Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive<p>I will do what it takes to survive<p>{Chorus is done}<p>Life hasn't treated me fair<p>I knew it never would<p>So I tried to make it right<p>Doing all I could<p>The signs say<p>Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive<p>What was meant for guilt<p>Only gives me drive<p>I know I was innocent<p>It was not my blame<p>If only I could find who<p>tried to put me in that frame<p>How could they<p>They know what they did<p>Goldilocks, wanted dead or alive<p>I never truly was one to kid<p>It's all their fault<p>They're to blame<p>Their own jealousy<p>Ruined my good name<p>I'm no longer the Goldilocks<p>You think you knew<p>I'm different now<p>Not just becase I grew<p>{Chorus x2}<p>Goldilocks<p>Wanted dead or alive...

This is one of my favorite series and I just love Chris Colfer! He is a great actor and author but I really thought that this series was going to end with the third book but I feel as if this series should end with this book. But don' t get me wrong, I love this series and I reccomend it to everyone who likes anything fairytale like. I got hooked with fairy tales after I finished Once Upon A Time, so Im saying its great! Happy reading!
