Synopsis (Goodreads)
Fairy tales are just the beginning.

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.

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?

Of course, Colfer does it again. Yet another amazing installation in the TLOS series. With each new addition in this series, Colfer’s writing style improves and he continues to impress my socks off.

Kind of sad that this series will be ending soon, but, all good things must come to an end.

Note to author: Please never stop writing. You are amazing.
