I LOVE this book! I couldn't but the book down and I didn't want it to end. I was so sad when I finished this book because I wanted more! This is, and forever will be, my FAVORITE series of all time! I would recommend this to ANYONE but make sure you read the series IN ORDER or else you will miss out on EVERYTHING! Also if you don't read it IN ORDER, you won't understand what is going on. I love how the author uses a bit of love and I love hoe descriptive he is! Overall, this was an ENCHANTING book/series.

Worlds Collide is the last book in the Land of Stories series. I love this series and have reread it about 10 times. I love the characters in this series because they are fairy tale characters but more modern. The characters always make me laugh. The storyline is also really cool. I love how the characters come out of their stories and into the modern world. It is very fun to read about how they react to everyday things. This book also has more chapters from people who don’t know about the fairy tale world and are trying to figure out what's going on. I like to read about that because it gives a very interesting perspective and shows how weird it is when you don’t know about the secret world that the rest of the characters know about. I love this series and this book and one hundred percent recommend it. @ToastieTaco of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Chris must have been so exhausted from writing six amazing books that the romance took an obvious turn. Conner marrying Bree? It’s... wow I’m not saying it’s a bad thing and I am glad he married someone from the otherworld cause’ if he didn’t they would have cut themselves off from it. Overall Chris you deserve a standing ovation 5 stars for all your books. By the way his chapters are a bit too long right?

This colossal conclusion to the Land of Stories will leave you bewildered. As the fantastical worlds collide, Alex and Conner must do the impossible and face their biggest challenges yet. Once you start reading, this book is hard to put down!

This book was one of the best ones in the series! Definitely recommend it if you haven't read Land Of Stories!!!!! I'm sad that the series ended though... This is the best way to spread fairytales throughout the world. It feels like you get sucked right into this book and live whatever they live. Keep it up magical Chris

I absolutely loved this series, and I’m super sad that it ended (I may or may not have teamed up a little when I finished the last chapter of the last book in the series!!!). Ending was predictable but surprising at the same time, but don’t worry, no spoilers here! If you’re reading this review and have not yet read The Land Of Stories series, I’m begging you, PLEASE READ IT, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT IT!
5 stars!!

A lot of wars happen they defeat them all. everything is good. epilogue Alex comes to visit.

Jul 21, 2017

basically what happens is everybody escapes the fairytale world and there is a bunch of different little mini-wars and both of the literary armies are fighting and it is just a lot of drama and awesome chaos!!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It may have parts that younger children would maybe want to skip, such as head chopping, melting of people or chopping of hands or electrified monkeys.

Sep 18, 2017

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Alex gets turned evil by witches' potion, witches are super sick, and Morina—she's just a MONSTER (I can't describe it in words; you have to read the book)

Sep 18, 2017

Violence: Lots of fighting, head and hand getting chopped off, curses, etc.

"Happily ever after isn't a solution to life's problems or a guarantee that life will be easy; it's a promise we make to ourselves to always live our best lives despite whatever circumstance comes our way."

"Sweetheart, 'happily ever after' DOES exist, it's just not what you think. 'Happily ever after' isn't a solution to life's problems or a guarantee that life will be easy it's a PROMISE we make ourselves to always live our best lives, despite whatever circumstances comes our way. When we focus on joy in times of heartbreak, when we choose to laugh on the days it's hard to smile, and when we count our blessings over our losses—THAT'S what a true 'happily ever after' is all about. You don't get there by being perfect; on the contrary, it's our humanity that guides us. And that's what fairytales have been trying to teach us all along." - John Bailey
