I read this aloud to the kids and they enjoyed it, but I found myself removing words and restructuring sentences while reading aloud. I also thought the plot a bit predictable and the dialogue corny. ( )

OMG I loved everything about this story!!! I figured out only 1 of the mysteries of the story, but the ending blew me away. ( )

Well written book and keeps you wanting to read more. I was hesitant, at first, wanting to read a book from a celebrity I knew on television show Glee. However, the book was different enough and I like how the twins seemed more realistic (being a twin myself), rather than the stereotypical good/bad twin or the everything is the same twins. Excited to read the rest of the series when I get around to it. ( )

***Very Slight Spoiler Ahead***
I went into this story knowing nothing about it, except that it was recommended due to other books I had enjoyed. It was a very pleasant read, the story starts out a bit slowly but picks up nicely by the end. One of the most notable and impressive parts of this story is the accuracy with which the author speaks of childhood grief. I lost my father as a child as did the kids in the story, and the author wrote so poignantly that it was actually a bit difficult to read. ( )

I gave it three stars because of the last 100 pages. I almost put this one down, mostly because it was dragging a bit, but I stuck it out. First, I picked it up because I thought it was by "Artemis Fowl" author, Eoin Colfer and I like fairy tale-type stories. When I realized it was by Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on gLee!, I thought I'd keep going with it. I really liked the new spin on the Evil Queen's story. The story line was a bit familiar and predictable. I will have to see about #2 in the series.... ( )

"A villain is just a victim who's story is never told" - Evil Queen

I love a good fairytale-retelling but this series is a bit different. It is a mixture of the fairytales we know, the original dark tales they originate from, and imaginative new twists.

There are strong moral themes throughout and broches difficult topics like grieving the loss of a parent, in a way young readers can understand. The twins also learn the importance of compassion and understanding and that not all villains start out evil, that they're sometimes born of circumstance.

The kids remind me of Jack and Annie from Magic Treehouse. Jack and Annie portal through time to historical events and Conner and Alex fall through a book into the fairytale world. Not only is the world building great but the character development is creative and fun as well. Conner's snarky humor is pure gold and had me audibly laughing several times.

The only thing I didn't care for was the occasional cuss word throughout. I just don't see why a kids book needs them no matter what the subject but that is just my opinion. Otherwise, it's great for young readers and adults will enjoy it as well. Happy reading! 📚
