Hello there, I have finally been able to get my hands on the fourth ever-engaging book ‘Beyond the kingdoms” of the Land of Stories series and started reading it just yesterday. Just like the previous 3 land of stories books, this one has also had me reading for hours non-stop and completely enveloped in the book’s world leaving me craving for the next book.
This book once again shows me how much power and magic, books, or in other words a few pages with a good, well written, story can hold, and I can assure you that good books like this can leave you dazed for hours, sometimes even days.
After the amazing last book this one is no less astonishing, in the fourth book, shocking secrets about the twins past, future and present are revealed, With the twins team consisting of themselves, the runaway goldilocks and jack, red riding hood, mother goose and her gander Lester the twins are on an adventure with Breath-taking action, laugh-out-loud moments, and exciting new revelations that will definitely leave you, my friends craving for the fifth and final book of the series ‘an author’s Odyssey’
the Masked Man is on the loose in the Land of Stories, and it’s up to Alex and Conner Bailey to stop him…except Alex has been thrown off the Fairy Council, and no one will believe they’re in danger.
After reading these paragraphs from my friends at Land of Stories wiki I dont think I can describe my thoughts better –
“With only the help of the ragtag group of Goldilocks, Jack, Red Riding Hood, and Mother Goose and her gander, Lester, the Bailey twins discover the Masked Man’s secret scheme: He possesses a powerful magic potion that turns every book it touches into a portal, and he is recruiting an army of literature’s greatest villains!
So, begins a race through the magical Land of Oz, the fantastical world of Neverland, the madness of Wonderland, and beyond. Can Alex and Conner catch up to the Masked Man, or will they be one step behind until it’s too late?
Fairy tales and classic stories collide in the fourth adventure in the bestselling Land of Stories series as the twins travel beyond the kingdoms!”
I must say that this book has by far been my favourite in the Land of Stories series. With this book Chris Colfer has taken his writing to the next level – his way of intercepting classic stories dumbfounded me the day I read the first book – The Wishing Spell and continues to astonish me to this day.
This book has left me with an extremely strong craving for the next one and i like to pamper myself, so you wont have to wait long!
If I were to rate this marvellous book in the storyline, grammar and sentence formation and vocabulary I would give it –
10out of 10 for sentence formation and grammar
9 out of 10 for vocabulary
9 and a half out of 10 for the storyline
But for the whole book including all other factors, I would finally rate it –
4.85 / 5
This book was splendid in all aspects for a child of my age (9-12)
So merry reading!
