Very very very exciting book packed with even more action than the last and leaves you hanging on a very dangerous cliff hager. The whole series is awesome and very addictive and I would definitely recommend it

In my perspective, “The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning” is possibly the most intense yet incredibly creative book I have read in my lifetime. This book is a thrilling adventure novel. From reading the previous books, I was expecting this novel to be just as fascinating or perhaps even a bit less. However, I was mistaken. The Land of Stories novels just get better every time I picked up on them. I would deservingly give this spectacular novel five stars as it never fails to make me feel various emotions while reading it. Words cannot by any means describe how attached I felt to this book as I read it. The moment I touched the cover of the book, I could feel my heart bursting tremendously. Chris Colfer never fails to make me put down a Land of Stories novel. Vivid pictures appeared in my mind as I followed every word on every page. To tell the truth, I felt quite a few connections with this book. The characters are seemingly my age and have dealt with some similar scenarios as me. Every time I finished reading a chapter, I was left wanting to know more. It felt as if my hands were glued to the book until I read another chapter and another. Adrenaline rushed through my blood as I flipped the page to find out the exciting and life-changing scenes! I felt tears piling up in my eyes and slowly rolling down my cheeks when something significant had happened. The emotions that I felt throughout the entire novel caused me to feel as if I were in the story myself the whole time. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel and hope to read the next book in the series soon!

A Grimm Warning, written by Chris Colfer is the third installment for his series, The Land of the Stories. Following the end of the second book, Connor finds himself being pulled once again towards the direction of the Land of Stories, as a bigger enemy evolves. Along with new characters and new stories, both Alex and Connor, although in two completely different worlds are struggling to bring both worlds together. This novel definitely carries an outstanding amount of twists and turns, as the twins learn more of their past and the history of the Land of Stories. Overall, I can say if you enjoyed the series so far, you will truly be surprised with the events coming in this novel. I give this book a 5/5 stars, and I recommend this series to anyone around the middle school age.
