Book Review: The Sisters Grimm: Book Nine: The Council of Mirrors


About the author: Michael Buckley is the New York Times bestselling author of the Sisters Grimm and NERDS series. He lives inBrooklyn,New York, with his wife and son. Peter Ferguson is a comic book and editorial artist who has illustrated a number of young adult novels. He lives in Argentina.


About the book: In the final volume in the Sisters Grimm series, Sabrina, Daphne, and the rest of the Grimms and their friends must face off against the Master to decide the fate of Ferryport Landing—and the world. When Mirror fails to escape the barrier using Granny Relda’s body, he turns to his plan B: killing all the Grimms so that the magical barrier collapses. In the meantime, Sabrina has gathered the other magic mirrors as advisors on how to deal with their mortal enemy. They tell her to join forces with the Scarlet Hand against Mirror, in exchange for offering all the citizens of Ferryport Landing their freedom. This final chapter is the end of the road for several beloved characters, but the conclusion is sure to satisfy devoted fans of the series.

My Review: Michael Buckley created a fairy tale that revolves around several well-known fairy tale characters such fairies, giants, witches, monsters, princesses, Magic Mirrors, flying carpets and many. This is the final book in the series called The Council of Mirrors.  

Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are descendants of one half of the Brothers Grimm and it’s their duty to keep their eyes on the Everafter Community. Everafter has taken up resident in Ferryport Landing and the town is being destroyed by an angry mob of ogres, trolls, talking animals and assorted creeps running down its streets, terrorizing people. As war rip through the town, Sabrina consults with a team of magic mirrors who told her that the only way the good guys will win is for her to lead the army in exchange for offering all the citizens of Ferryport Landing their freedom.

If you haven’t read The Sister Grimm series this is the best time to start and take a journey into fairy land.
