When Brystal Evergreen stumbles across a secret section of the library, she discovers a book that introduces her to a world beyond her imagination and learns the impossible: She is a fairy capable of magic! But in the oppressive Southern Kingdom, women are forbidden from reading and magic is outlawed, so Brystal is swiftly convicted of her crimes and sent to the miserable Bootstrap Correctional Facility.

But with the help of the mysterious Madame Weatherberry, Brystal is whisked away and enrolled in an academy of magic! Adventure comes with a price, however, and when Madame Weatherberry is called away to attend to an important problem she doesn't return.
Do Brystal and her classmates have what it takes to stop a sinister plot that risks the fate of the world, and magic, forever?

I basically have grown up with these books!! I remember pre ordering all of the Land of Stories books months in advance. Once the 6th book (the last book) came out, I was super sad!! Then this one was announced!! Thank you so much Chris Colfer for creating the most magical and amazing, adventure book series ever!! Even though I am no longer in middle school or high school I still continue to read them and will until the end!! This series is that good, so no matter what age you are, everyone who likes fairytales or Disney will enjoy this series.

This book is a perfect prequel to TLOS and I can’t wait until the 2nd!! I can’t wait to find out what it’s going to be about! I need it now!!

This book is one of Chris Colfer’s best yet! When you read the book you get really attached and captivated with each one of the characters and you can’t put the book down, like it’s glued to your hands! I could write an 80 page essay why this book is the best. This book is good for when you have finished the Land of Stories and you want more of Chris’s writing and creative mind. This book is also great for girls who want to rule the world. I give this a 105/5
