(Book 7 in the Sisters Grimm series)
After a two year long magic-induced sleep, Henry and Veronica Grimm are finally united with their daughters Sabrina and Daphne. Henry is less than pleased to find himself back in Ferryport Landing with his estranged family. He doesn't have long to be affronted. War between the Everafters looms. Those loyal to the dreaded Scarlet Hand are eager to fight and promise to take no prisoners. The Grimm family seeks refuge with Prince Charming in his rebel camp. The rebels have little success against the Scarlet Hand. Their camp hides a spy. The war rages on and leads the Sisters Grimm closer and closer to the mastermind behind the Scarlet Hand.
What I thought: Another rousing installment in a great series. Lots of surprises. An evil cliffhanger. (A word to the wise: don't be so trusting!) Everybody from Uncle Jake to Puck is dealing with problems in this book. Can't wait to read the final book (The Inside Story) set to be published in May 2010.
