Why does it have to end on a cliff hanger??????????

*Spoilers* The ending of this book had me shocked, like what the hell? I love how Bree wrote her own stories, and I loved the reunion (I'm not saying, but if you read the book you know which one I'm talking about). I'm really curious to see how this one ends. I loved seeing how the Fairy Tale World characters interacted with the Otherworld, it was very entertaining. I think my favorite part of this book had to be Alex and Conner going into Conner's stories to recruit the characters to form their own army.

On Chris' part 5 stars.But Conner come on, how did you think the Dolly Lama's crew was going to react?

I love this book because all the character were spot on! I loved that there were many characters. I loved all of the characters because their personalities related to me. I also thought this book was good because the magical world was so big. The book was funny because of the magic. The author made everyday objects into magical things. Lastly, the author connected with the reader by taking me on an emotional journey. I loved that it had sad and happy moments. Also the game in the book made me think that the author was really creative. I would recommend this book because of the magic and because it’s really funny! Micah Berger-Sollod

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!
