Awesome awesome awesome!
None and yet so many at the same time. Chris Colfer really wrote a great adventure and made it his own. While this story recalls many of the fairy tale classics, Colfer keeps the integrity of each character without commercializing them. But they aren't who the story is about anyway. Alex and Connor Bailey are awesome and lovable and new characters who are a fresh breath of air.
What? I have to pick just one? That's not going to happen! I caught myself a few times wondering how in the world he gave each characters voice such a different range, I had no problem telling which character was from the other.
If I could have I would have! But I just didn't have that much free time in one sitting. But I did finish it in a week and a half.
Thank you Chirs Colfer! After listening to The Land of Stories, the wishing spell and finding out soon after that he had already had The Enchantress Returns in the works, I was so delighted! I hope he isn't done with Alex and Connor Bailey just yet, please don't be! I have more to say but can't without spoiling something awesome for those who haven't read yet.
