If you go to the Amazon page for TLOS3 and click on the Look Inside icon on the top left corner of the screen, you can read the first few chapters or so. Personally, I prefer the first two books from what I've seen....

So I guess CrissColfer idiots are taking Will's name out of the book and/or replacing it with a certain someone? I believe they did this the last time to TLOS2 as well. Yet they claim to support LGBT people? CrissColfer shippers are no more allies of LGBT people than are the straight guys who think the 'actresses' on lesbian porn videos are hot, but who think that real life "dykes" are disgusting. To them, this is less of a human rights issue and more of a self centered fetish.

These spoilers are from an interview in the Miami Herald :


Alex wrestles with her responsibilities to her magical powers and her first attraction to a boy, while Connor grapples with insecurity over his talented sister and his first crush. Mother Goose has a tendency to get drunk in bars at crucial moments. Goldilocks’ history of breaking and entering turns her into an outlaw. Community-minded Little Bo Peep ousts obliviously self-centered Little Red Riding Hood (known as Red) from her kingdom.



Even the megalomaniacal general who is the baddie in A Grimm Warning springs from the author. “I was born with the drive to conquer and accomplish, and he represents that side of me,” Colfer says. “Of course, he’s much more evil, but I think it’s much more interesting to explore the villain in yourself. If a reader says to themselves, ‘I would have conquered a whole nation, too, if that had been done to me,’ then I think you’ve done your job.”

4YE’s Spoiler Free Review of “The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning”
by Zoe Ambrozewska · July 8, 2014


Credit: Little, Brown Books For Young Readers

The Land Of Stories: A Grimm Warning is the third book in the Chris Colfer penned series, and I will openly admit that I bought the first book for the simple reason that one of my favourite Glee actors had written it. I absolutely loved The Wishing Spell, however, and was maybe overly excited to start its sequel The Enchantress Returns, not for Chris Colfer, but to catch up with twins Alex and Conner Bailey. Myself (Zoe) and my colleague Kirsty were lucky enough to read A Grimm Warning before its official release today, so here are our spoiler-free thoughts on our third trip to 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 200-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.


In A Grimm Warning we rejoin a lot of the characters at important points in their lives, which leads to a change in plenty of their perspectives. As the book progresses, it cleverly takes a group of characters who traditionally belong in children’s stories, and teaches them about growing up, taking responsibility, and moving on. As the first two books saw the Land of Stories become real to Alex and Conner, I felt that, thanks to the events of A Grimm Warning, a group of previously abstract fairies, princes, princesses, criminals and frogs started to feel more real to me as the reader.

If I had to make one criticism (and it is a very small one), it would be the same one I would make of the first two books, and that is that the finale seems to happen very quickly in comparison to a big build up and backstory. There was a lot going on, but I never found myself bored or skim reading for fear of missing something – as most points became (rather cleverly) relevant by the end. As well as this, a couple of characters felt under-used, but I understand that, at over 400 pages, the book was already quite long for a children’s audience. Besides, who knows? They may return in the next installment!

All in all, if you read and enjoyed The Wishing Spell and The Enchantress Returns, I would most definitely recommend A Grimm Warning. Despite a slightly more concrete and grown-up feel to it, the book still retains its magical vibe, and was equally as charming as it’s prequels. Colfer’s imagination is as impressive as ever, and his unique voice and writing skill continues to improve, especially his descriptive detail – I could picture the story crystal clear in my head as if it were a movie.

For me, however, the sign of a good book is how it makes me feel. While reading A Grimm Warning I was totally gripped – I laughed, I cried, I was scared, and I was shocked. I found myself feeling sad as I closed my book and left the Fairytale world for the time being, and almost regretted reading it so quickly (in two large sessions within 24 hours), as I wanted to keep going. The thing that sticks with you after you have finished, however, is the cliffhanger – and wow, what a cliffhanger! I need to know what happens next, and I will most definitely be getting my hands on a copy of The Land Of Stories 4 as soon as possible when it hits book stores next year.

Much like Zoe, I devoured A Grimm Warning. Seriously, I read it in 12 hours! What instantly struck me with this latest journey of the Bailey twins through the Otherworld and The Land of Stories was how much Alex and Conner had grown up.  We see the twins dealing with real life issues; love, war, death and deception, all the while keeping to their true nature.

Like Zoe, I first read the The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell because it was written by one of my favourite Glee stars, however now I read the later instalments purely because they are well written exciting books.  This new book definitely shows how Colfer has grown as a writer, with much more detail given, especially to the idea that the two worlds always have a connection that ties them together.  I have to say I laughed, I cried and my jaw dropped at the cliffhanger to the book, and no we won’t give it away here because that would be mean and horrid.

I was really pleased to see the return of all the characters I had grown so fond of; Jack and Goldilocks, Red Riding Hood and of course Mother Goose.  When reading a multi book franchise like this, I always love it when new characters are brought in and Colfer does not fail to deliver on this.  Again, I will not spoil anything by telling you who we meet but all I will say is that he makes The Fairy-Tale World a much fuller, more rounded place by the introduction of the new species.

Colfer’s ascerbic wit is never far from the surface in the book, and no part shows this more than his creation of “The Book Huggers”. They really are a true group of mean girls, and I love the fact that he is not afraid to create characters that people will love to hate.

One small thing that really made me love this book was Colfer’s attention to detail when talking about the locations in The Otherworld.  I live in London, and one thing that really irks me is when authors and film-makers do not make trips through my adopted city realistic.  Colfer does not fall guilty of this, and this should come as no surprise to his fans because we all know how much he loves London. I can imagine Colfer wandering around London last summer taking notes of all the places he mentions, and Zoe and I will be making a mini pilgrimage to one particular sight later this week.

Although these books are primarily for children, there is definitely something for everyone and I can definitely hear Colfer’s voice in the books, and that voice helps keep the characters real and grounded, even the magical ones.  I can’t wait for book four next year, and I just hope that I get the opportunity to tell Chris Colfer how much I love these books, and how they are genuinely up there in my all time favourites, right next to another series of books about a boy and his journeys in a magical world. I can think of no greater compliment than saying I enjoy these books as much as the adventures of Harry Potter and his friends.

One of my favourite things to do now that I have read the book is to listen to Chris Colfer bring the story to life via the accompanying audiobook which I will be buying as soon as I can get hold of it.

I can see myself giving The Land of Stories series to my friend’s children as a rite of passage book when they are old enough to read them, and I can think of no greater honour for a book to be passed through the generations.

I can only hope that we are lucky enough to get another UK signing this year, so I can tell Chris just how much I have enjoyed this book.

Spoiler:
Does the ending mean what I think it means? Alex and Conner have a half sibling? Or maybe they were the infant that was mentioned earlier, and Little Bo Peep is their real mother? Or maybe their father really isn't the Masked Man after all?

What an evil twist!  Smile

since this is a spoiler thread, i assume by now either everyone has already read hte book, or you will avoid this thread altogether. anyway the rest are very spoilerish:

the dad/masked man was sent to the prison over a decade ago, before the kid was born. that means the bastard child will be about 10 yrs old, so he can't be that infant. my theory is that he's that german boy - he was very different from the usual kids and was feeling rather lonely. that's why he was willing to take the twins to the castle. there was only him and his mom. no dad. he also has magic blood. he's perfectly set up for the reveal that he's AC's half brother - the other "heir".

i do have a question about AC's dad - how did he "die"? i forgot from the first book.

I wonder how much the fairy godmother and mother goose know about this other heir; if the german boy turned out to be that heir, I guess they only saw him when was a baby, if not would have noticed since the beginning something strange on him. Or actually never saw him before.

Umm what about bree? seems she also has some magic blood.

Oh can't be 2015 already?

^ bree is AC's age. if bree's dad is also AC's dad, does he have both children around the same time?

wait, i am confused. the masked man can't be AC's dad. he's been in jail for over a decade, he couldn't possibly be AC's dad in the other world until 3 yrs ago. is it possible that the masked man has a identical twin brother who was AC's dad? if so the "heir" is not half brother but cousin to AC.

^ I support the twin theory, though I was thinking to re-read TLOS as I've forgotten how the twins's dad supposedly die. The twins theory might be more reasonable to me as since I read the book I've been trying to understand why AC's "dad" is acting so weirdly (and vengeful).

Things are getting so complicated lol

Well, twins run in families so an 'evil twin' would make sense. Emmerich is 10 (the Masked Man was locked up for a decade), never knew his father, has some magic in him, and could have been handed over to his perhaps adopted mother near the castle portal by Mother Goose (who then promises to not let on about him to TFG).

But... what about Bree? Why does she have magic in her???

Post  fantastica on 7/21/2014, 11:48 am

bree could be a red herring - she may have magic blood from some obscure sources (her grandma is german so maybe she has Grimm blood aka mother goose blood?) but i will put my bet on the german boy being the "other heir".

i agree this book is the best of the three. chris' writing improved a lot since his first book. this book is really "evil" because of that cliff hanger.  Smile 

"evil twin" makes a lot more sense because it's almost impossible to justify AC's dad suddenly turn from a very good hearted man to pure evil. according to the witch the masked man has been evil pretty much throughout his life - lied and cheated and made fake promises etc. not just to Little Bo. he just can't be AC's dad. it would make sense that AC's dad had always been the good one and his family favored him and made him the heir-apparent and banished hte evil twin so the masked one hated his family and everything.

i re-read hte first book regarding AC's dad's death and he died in a traffic accident. there was a funeral, although there was few details. it is possible that he wasn't comletely dead and was ferried back to the fairy world to be cured but it's too much of a stretch. i don't think he would let his loved ones - wife and kids all suffer by pretending to be dead, unless he was bewitched by some sort of evil power.

so, evil twin until proven wrong next year. god at my age i really wish time can stand still, but i can't wait for next year to come sooner. really looking forward to the next installment. maybe there will be a book 5/6 too?

Post  Glorfindel on 7/24/2014, 7:29 pm

I finished the book today, and really loved it. I agree it's the best book of the series so far, although I liked the evil enchantress' storyline and the twin's quest to get the wand of the 2nd book a bit more. Wars and battles just don't interest me that much. But despite that minor pure personal thing I thought this book was a good read, was catchy, and had indeed a good pace (Chris' writing keeps getting better and better with each new book imo), and I wanted to keep reading on and on till the inevitable end.

I especially liked Conner's journey through Europe, e.g. his surprise that every country looked different and had its own identity. I also like how his crush on Bree 'bothered' him, lol. And how he learned to embrace and use his own magic (like when he found Emmerich).
Alex's Fairy Inaugural Ball storyline was a bit 'shy ordinary girl becomes pretty princess/fairy trope' predictable in comparison to Conner's story, although I bet little girls (Chris' target audience) will love that part of the book.  neutre 

Highlights (random) :
- The Hall of Dreams, and the way the dream bubbles 'worked'.
- Gretel's story about wanting to be an individual and not only a part of 'Hans and Gretel' (hello, massive shade on Klaine, lol).- Chris letting the peasants and citizens, men and women, fight alongside the armies (this is something that always annoyes me when writers don't include the actual people living in the land in their 'noble' battles and wars fought by 'noble' warriors/heroes, as these people normally would indeed be willing to fight for everything they own: their lives and homes).
- The queens fighting alongside the kings and the rest of the army.
- Froggy being elected instead of Red in the end.
- Alex calling out the Happily Ever After Assembly on excluding the non-human kingdoms/territories: the Elves and the Troblins.


The chiffhanger was obvious to me, so I wasn't that shocked by it, but it does provide a delicious open ending so we can look forward to the 4th book even more.  fanny2
I also think Emmerich is the Masked Man's and Little Bo Peep's child. Bree could be a descendant of Wilhelm Grimm (German grandmother). As Hagetta said the child was a boy it can't be Bree, plus she's too old.

The Masked Man is imo not Alex and Conner's father, but his brother (twin or a brother looking a lot like him: it's been 4-5 years since the twins saw their father, so a close resemblance to him must have shocked Alex into thinking it was her dad himself). Hagetta said that the Masked Man was the youngest brother of a powerful family (like the Fairy Godmother's family).
The Masked Man also was in prison for a decade, so he couldn't be their dad (who at that time lived in the Other World).
So Emmerich is probably Alex and Conner's cousin. (and I have the suspicion that Alex and Conner's dad is still alive too)

Can't wait till TLoS4 (which was no doubt Chris' intension Wink ).

This book I just could not put down.

I do believe the Masked Man is an evil twin.

Hagetta probably forgot The Masked Man had a twin.

Emmerich has to be the other heir.

Conner I feel is Alex's anchor, and if he wasn't with her right now, and after Rook betrayed them all, she might have given way completely to her heartbreak and anger as we saw when she blasted those French soldiers.

I hope we see Bree again, I liked her.

This is definitely the best in the series so far.

Chris's writing has really improved.  neutre 

I think there are going to be funny moments with Conner learning how to use his magic.  Razz

Posting the feelings right after finishing the book.

I read it really slowly, whether that was because of my own unconscious lackluster towards reading in general, or if I wanted to savour the book a bit longer...I don't know.

The book seemed to move ahead a bit slow, but even then I would have wanted Chris to focus somewhat on Conners home situation further, Alex was in the same world the two of the previous books have been located so I would have like some of that time given even more to Conner's side of the story. (Doh, the book is called The Land of Stories I know, but still.) Cornelius still rocks, BTW...every fairytale needs a fat, frumpy unicorn.

About half way through I was waiting for something to happen, and by the time Bree and Conner were travelling through Europe I though it was a bit too much. A treasure hunt in Europe. Yay and at the same time ugh.

The puns were good, and reminded of me that the kids have to hear the "bad jokes" Conner blurts out from somewhere, why not from this book. Adults know, or should know, most of these jokes so they gave me just a small chuckle every now and then.

I thought the shift in the mood was quite cleverly introduced with the violent turn of events; as if saying right, now we're getting to the mood of the bookcover, kids! The tight line between kids books and, serious death inducing violence was cleverly handled here, but it definately is advancing from the previous books in that front.

And I as an adult find the real depictation of fairy tale characters facing violence interesting. I did raise a few questioning eyebrows for the other fairies being completely incompetent at defending themselves at the start...well hundreds of years of peace does that for you? The fairies are a bit of wimps TBH.

Enjoyable reading, but because of my current mood, the book felt more like a childrens book than the previous ones? Good and engrossing for the children I'm sure.
