“Beyond the Kingdoms”, Book #4 of the “Land of Stories” series, written by Chris Colfer, continues following Alex and Conner Bailey through the Land of Stories. I love the twists and cliffhangers in this book because it just adds to the mystery that is already there. I admire Alex’s determination because even when she is not being supported from her community and when she is facing her own personal problems and mysteries, she still is determined to do something kind for others. The author has done an amazing job crafting already developed characters into characters that people of a whole different age group would be interested in. What I mean by this is that a lot of teens are falling in love with this series which is full of fairytale characters. I also love how this book is not geared towards a certain gender or group of people, so if you are looking for a new read then I would definitely recommend this series to you! I rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars. @Rose of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The fourth book in Chris Colfer’s The Land of Stories series is called Beyond The Kingdom. It takes twins Alex and Conner beyond the fairy kingdom into the realm of classic children’s literary worlds. Beyond the Kingdoms is a funny and moving addition to Colfer’s magical tale, which sees the twins maturing into independent teenagers without the guidance of their fairy godmother. With Robin Hood, Peter Pan, and the Tin Man thrown into the mix, it's a whirlwind adventure! There are dangerous situations and villains around every topsy turvy corner, and the stakes are raised to the most dangerous battle yet. This book focuses quite heavily on Alex as the responsibility of being the new fairy godmother gets to her. Many readers will be able to relate to the various emotions described by the author in this book. I would recommend this book for readers aged 10+. 4.2/5 stars
