The second in Chris Colfer’s fairytale series dives back into a magical world, but doesn’t have the charm of the first.
When their mother is kidnapped the Ezmia the Enchantress, Alex and Connor Bailey find their way back into the Land of Stories on a mission to save her. But, Ezmia is more powerful than they feared and has taken over.
Like the first book, Alex and Connor embark on an incredible adventure to combine six items from the most hated in the land. Readers will enjoy meeting the villains of great fairytales while also reuniting with the heroes.
However, there’s a bit of emotion missing from this adventure compared to when you read the twins discovering their history in the first.
Final say: Still fun, just not as fulfilling. ★★☆☆☆
