"While I think the first book in this series was better on a technical level I found this one to be more fun. The book moved at a breakneck pace and the many action set pieces were well done and nicely varied. The subplot of Sabrina's anger and prejudice against the Everafters was a nice touch and could be used in a classroom discussion on these subjects. One of the minor but grating issue I had with this book is Michael Buckley's using certain adjectives, like little girl or the teacher over and over. I thought it was overdone in the first book and is doubly true for this one. L. J. Ganser narration while not top shelf is still pretty good. My personal preference would have been to have a female narrator as this is a book with the Sister Grimms as the main character. I feel that choosing a male narrator for this series was a bit of a odd choice and a major misstep on the part of the publisher." said.

"Plot: I thought the first book was more interesting. At the end of this one I felt like, "that's it?".

Characters: I enjoyed seeing a softer side to Charming. I also liked the introduction of the Piper and various kids of the Everafters. I did roll my eyes at the fighting capability of Snow White. It seemed forced.
Sabrina had some good points about the Everafters and I think her suspicions are valid. At Charming's fundraiser in the previous book the majority of the Everafters hated the Grimms. I totally get where she is coming from. The grandmother is doing a horrible job of educating her grandkids. She also isn't even trying to see the situation from their point of view. She continues on in her ways and expects the 7 and 11 year old to adapt with little direction. Basically they are just told to read the fairytales. I wanted to slap her when she told Sabrina she wasn't the girl she thought she was and yada yada. A bit harsh coming from someone who has been with them for a few weeks. It's just harsh in general because she's the adult and they are children. No wonder the parents didn't want their grandkids to have anything to do with her. She's self-centered. I'm starting to hate the grandmother.
Also getting a bit tired of Puck's shenanigans.

" these characters just keep getting crazier and crazier.. " said.

" Good books I enjoy it. I got the two frist sisters Grimm books as a gift. " said.

" Another solid installment in The Sisters Grimm series. " said.

" Solid book, though I think it was more exposition for the real story. Loved Sabrina's characterization in this one! " said.

" With the creativity Vertigo's Bill Willingham showed in Fables, Buckley writes for a younger audience. It was funny seeing the "same" characters in such a different light between the 2 series " said.

" The second book was not as well plotted as the first one. It is still a good romp. This is a great series for elementary school children (girls especially!) who lean toward science fiction/fantasy or mystery. " said.
