What I liked:
Anytime an author uses a book inside a book and breaks the fourth wall to talk to the readers, it makes for an interesting tale. James Riley has created a wonderful world in his Once Upon a Time book with characters from just about every fairy tale under the sun, which makes these books a great place to start for middle-grade readers. They already know the characters. I feel the ending was more rushed than needed, but it was fun to spend time in this world again. The dual points of view help propel the story and keep you engaged as you read.
Final Verdict:
An interesting wrap-up to these three books. Even with the Fairy Queens working against them, Lena and Shefin free the djinn and save the kingdoms. Plenty of humor and sarcastic wit for middle-grade readers. This book starts slowly, but the action picks up about halfway through. With the rushed ending, this was not my favorite of the three books.
