The Land Of Stories: The Wishing Spell is the first book in my current favorite series (it’s funny how fast things can change!).
The book focuses on twins named Alex and Conner. For their twelfth birthday, the twin’s grandmother gives them her old fairy-take storybook, and after strange things begin to happen, one day Alex falls head-first into the storybook! Conner jumps in after her, and they end up in the fairy-tale world! When they realize the book is only an entrance, the twins begin collecting items for a spell called The Wishing Spell. Legend has it that the person that uses The Wishing Spell is granted one wish. The twins go to a lot of trouble to get the ingredients, but end up going home a different way. On the way, Alex and Conner Bailey learn a shocking secret about their heritage, their dead father, and themselves.
The second book in the series is called The Enchantress Returns, the third book is called A Grimm Warning, the fourth book is called Beyond the Kingdoms, the fifth book is called An Author’s Odyssey, and the sixth and final book is called Worlds Collide.
I adore The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell and every book after it! I’d recommend the series for teenagers.
On a scale from one to ten, The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell is an 8 and a half, in my opinion. Chris Colfer is a wonderful writer, and knows how to put just the right amount of suspense in an exciting moment! His series are action packed, thrill-jammed, and amazing right to the core. I highly recommend this book and series; I love it so much that I’m even writing a fan fiction!
