This one might be my favorite of the series, if only because it's not a collection narrative like the first two. Also, all the side characters are so intriguing!

Third installment of the Land of Stories finds the Alex and Connor battling an army of French solider's who have been trapped in between the Land of Stories and the real world for two hundred years.

Fast-paced, inventive, time-traveling, dimension-hopping, crazy cliff hangers....this book was phenomenal! I cannot wait for #4!!

This series is growing on me. Colfer's narration is a nightmare, but the story itself is nice.

Book three in the Land of Stories kids' series, about an alternate dimension full of fairy tale characters and the twin brother and sister who discover they have an important connection to it. In this one, they have to deal with a two-hundred-year-old army that is coming with the intention of conquering the Land of Stories for Napoleon, among other things.

I thought the first two books were fun, if a little slow to get going, but I'm afraid I didn't find this one nearly as engaging. Honestly, I thought the plot was a bit dull -- much more so than it seemed like it should have been, given the premise -- and a lot of the story details just didn't quite work for me. It did read pretty fast, but somehow it felt like it was dragging a bit, anyway.

Oh, well. At least I still find this series' version of Little Red Riding Hood weirdly entertaining. And it this installment does set up some potentially interesting mysteries for the second half of the series.

This was such a fantastic addition to this series! So much action in this one and a crazy cliffhanger ending...wow!

Entertaining and fun, but darker than the previous ones. Nice touch with the historical component.
