For months, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm’s parents have been sleeping under the influence of a terrible spell that no one could break. Now at last the spell is broken and the Grimms are reunited again after being apart for two years. Sabrina has imagined this moment in her darkest hours. There will be rejoicing and then she and her parents and sister will go back to their lives in New York City. At first, everything goes as hoped. There is the rejoicing and celebrating, but it is short-lived because Ferryport Landing is in a state of chaos. Not only have humans been driven out of the town, but the Everafters have been divided into two groups, and it looks as if all out war is in the offing.

Henry Grimm, Sabrina and Daphne’s father, is completely anti magic and anti Everafter. He wants nothing to do with Ferryport Landing and its peculiar inhabitants. Sabrina is inclined to agree with him, but Veronica Grimm and Daphne want to stay to help their friends (who are being led by Prince Charming) to fight against the terrible Scarlet Hand organization, which is being led by the mysterious “Master.” Soon Daphne and Sabrina are helping to train Prince Charming’s soldiers, using whatever magical means they have at their disposal to help them win the coming battle. Everyone knows that if they lose this war, Ferryport Landing will never be the same again.

This seventh title in the Sisters Grimm series is just as exciting and thrilling as the other titles in the series have been. Just when you think that the sisters are going to have the “happy ending” that they have been looking for, something happens. It soon becomes clear that Sabrina, Daphne, their relatives, and their friends are going to have to fight very hard for the ending that they want.

In this audiobook, L. J. Ganser gives his readers a thrilling audio adventure that they will find enthralling and enormously engaging. The story ends with these dreads words: “To be continued…”
