"Worlds Collide" by Chris Colfer is an epic end to the wonderful "Land of Stories" series. I've been reading the "Land of Stories" books since they were first published, and I can say that this story does not disappoint. The characters from all of the magical realms unite to help fight off fairytale enemies to regain control of the human and fairy tale world. On top of that, Alex goes missing and Connor has to save her. While it is sad that the series is now over, I think Colfer brilliantly ended the series on a high note, fulfilling all of the storylines to their greatest potential. However, if you want to read this book, make sure you have read the rest of the series first! You don't want to miss a single detail that leads to this tale!

The sixth book in the Land of Stories series is a beautiful end to the amazing series. In Words Collide, everyone from the fairytale world has the ability to come to the “real world”. This includes not only heroes, but also villains. Alex and Connor have to figure out how to stop some of the worst villains ever in a huge villain army. Their situation gets even worse when Alex goes missing! Now Connor is all by himself having to save the entire world. Just like the other books it is a very interesting adventure book that is hard to put down once started. Around the very middle of the story I did have to power read for a few chapters. This means it got a little boring, because the book moved pretty slow and hard to read, but I pulled through, and it was worth it! I recommend this for ages 8+, and for people who like intense stories.

I LOVE this book! I couldn't but the book down and I didn't want it to end. I was so sad when I finished this book because I wanted more! This is, and forever will be, my FAVORITE series of all time! I would recommend this to ANYONE but make sure you read the series IN ORDER or else you will miss out on EVERYTHING! Also if you don't read it IN ORDER, you won't understand what is going on. I love how the author uses a bit of love and I love how descriptive he is! Overall, this was an ENCHANTING book/series.

Worlds Collide is the last book in the Land of Stories series. I love this series and have reread it about 10 times. I love the characters in this series because they are fairy tale characters but more modern. The characters always make me laugh. The storyline is also really cool. I love how the characters come out of their stories and into the modern world. It is very fun to read about how they react to everyday things. This book also has more chapters from people who don’t know about the fairy tale world and are trying to figure out what's going on. I like to read about that because it gives a very interesting perspective and shows how weird it is when you don’t know about the secret world that the rest of the characters know about. I love this series and this book and one hundred percent recommend it. @ToastieTaco of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Chris must have been so exhausted from writing six amazing books that the romance took an obvious turn. Conner marrying Bree? It’s... wow I’m not saying it’s a bad thing and I am glad he married someone from the otherworld cause’ if he didn’t they would have cut themselves off from it. Overall Chris you deserve a standing ovation 5 stars for all your books. By the way his chapters are a bit too long right?

This colossal conclusion to the Land of Stories will leave you bewildered. As the fantastical worlds collide, Alex and Conner must do the impossible and face their biggest challenges yet. Once you start reading, this book is hard to put down!

This book was one of the best ones in the series! Definitely recommend it if you haven't read Land Of Stories!!!!! I'm sad that the series ended though... This is the best way to spread fairytales throughout the world. It feels like you get sucked right into this book and live whatever they live. Keep it up magical Chris

basically what happens is everybody escapes the fairytale world and there is a bunch of different little mini-wars and both of the literary armies are fighting and it is just a lot of drama and awesome chaos!!

Frightening or Intense Scenes: It may have parts that younger children would maybe want to skip, such as head chopping, melting of people or chopping of hands or electrified monkeys.
