Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are no strangers to trouble and fighting monsters. They no all about it, but now that their parents are awake and their Granny Relda's body has been taken over by the Master, they are feeling smothered. Their parents will not allow them to help get Granny Relda back, they say that it's too dangerous. Sabrina knows that they are going to be able to help, because, Hey, they've fought more monsters and gotten out of more sticky situations than they can count! But things are more difficult now, because Granny Relda's gone, and the Grimms are in hiding, because Granny's house is also gone. Sabrina needs to figure out how to help and fast, so she does the one thing she can do, she goes to talk to the mirrors and they make a prophesy that the only way that the Grimm family will when the war is if Sabrina and Daphne lead them. The army that the Grimm family has enlisted wants nothing to do with a couple of kids leading them, but they are soon shown that even if they are young, Daphne and Sabrina have plenty of ideas for shenanigans that just might help the good defeat the evil.
This series has been so fun! I have loved getting to know the characters of Daphne, Sabrina, Granny Relda, Mr. Canis and Puck, not to mention all the other fairy-tale characters. I have enjoyed the spin that Michael Buckley puts on all of these fairy-tales. I am very sad to see the series end! Michael Buckley wrote kind of a thank you to bloggers and readers in the front of this book, so I thought that I would write kind of a thank you to him too.
Thank you Michael Buckley for writing such a great series, a series where the characters could seem real and jump off the pages. Also a series that mothers could read right along with their daughters and both enjoy and talk about together. A series where daughters could see that they have potential to do great things, even though they are young. Thank you so much!
