The series has come to an end. April 25 2012
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well, the series has wrapped up. You figure out all of the secrets. What was changed in the book of Everafters, and who did it, why the mirror is so evil, what happens throughout the mess, what happens to Jake after Briar dies, and if Puck ends up with Sabrina. I really like the ending, Puck is really taking up the role of the hero! I just really wish there was a bit more detail on the last epilogue. I feel really sad that the series is over, but I guess that is how it always is. Oh, and the first epilogue? The best surprise guest ever! I would totally encourage you to buy this book.

This series is punk rock, gravy, and totally Pucktastic!:D May 22 2012
By KourtneyP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one of the best series ever. Michael Buckley just dominated my favorite author/series/book lists with this. I know some people were dissapointed by the ending but if you think about everything Mirror had said about being abandoned it totaly made sense. I loved the part about the piece of mirror getting into her already magic alergic body and making her really sick. I liked the epilogues but the first one really dissapointed me (I'm a Puck and Sabrina together forever fan <3) but the second one made me so happy i just about screamed. I agree with everyone that thinks that he should continue the series with Sabrina's girls. I can already see the trouble those two would get into. Michael Buckley you are an awesome writer stay Pucktastic!!!!

This is my "Harry Potter" April 23 2012
By J. Longo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been reading this series since it was published, when I was Sabrina's age. Never reading Harry Potter until after all the books were released, I never really connected with that series like I did with the Sisters Grimm. When other kids my age were reading about Hogwarts, I was waiting anxiously for each Sisters Grimm book, rooting for Puck and Sabrina and laughing along with Daphne. Despite the seemingly filler 8th book, Michael Buckley did not disappoint in this finale. It was a fabulous end to a fantastic series. However, Mr. Buckley did throw in several twists that kept me on my toes through out the entire book. I can't wait to read the book again! It was absolutely Pucktastic! :D

Nice ending to a delightful series May 23 2012
By drebbles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have faced many challenges in their young lives but they are now facing their toughest challenge of all. The body of their Granny Relda has been taken over by The Master who is determined to shatter the barrier that separates Ferryport Landing and the Everafters from the "real" world. A war is raging and the Magic Mirrors have declared that Sabrina will lead the army that is trying to save Ferryport Landing. Sabrina has always wanted to be taken seriously but even she isn't sure she is up to the task.

Aimed at ages eight and up, "The Council of Mirrors" is the ninth and final book in Michael Buckley's The Sisters Grimm series. Buckley does an excellent job of tying everything together and bringing the series to a final and satisfying ending. While some of the earlier books focused more on the magic (and danger) of living with fairytale characters, the books got darker as the series went along and this is the darkest book in the series. The emphasis in this one is war and Buckley doesn't take the easy way out or sugarcoat the fact that people, even fairytale characters, die during war. Indeed several favorite characters die. Buckley also shows that war can tear families apart in other ways with some family members aligning themselves with different sides of the war.

This may sound a bit intense and I think it may be a bit much for younger readers to handle. But older readers should enjoy it and there are lessons to be learned here and not just about war. Sabrina and Daphne are both brave young heroines and Sabrina especially has grown throughout the series. I like the fact that Buckley has Sabrina showing that she is both brave and afraid and finally willing to admit her fears. Sabrina and Daphne's efforts to convince their parents they are growing up are well done and very believable. While there is plenty of death, destruction, and scary moments there are still some humorous moments - mostly involving Puck (although Granny Relda, relegated to the background for most of the book, is much missed). Buckley provides two epilogues which neatly wrap up the series (and no doubt will make young female readers sigh) although there does seem to be one major continuity error (I won't spoil it except to say it involves Granny Relda) that didn't make sense to me. But all in all it was a fitting ending to a delightful series.

A Book of Forgiveness Jan. 23 2013
By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
SPOILER ALERT

Just to clarify things, I LOVE THIS BOOK.
I LOVE THIS SERIES.
I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS.
I LOVE THE ENDING.

Some reviewers said the ending was lame, rushed, and unsatisfying.
I don't think so.
As I said in my review for The Unusual Suspects, I think these stories have morals. At the end they don't say "And the moral of this story is:" or anything, but I see the lessons hiding in there. In this book, I see lessons in forgiveness. Everyone seemed to get a second chance: Bunny got one with Snow, as did Charming. Canis gets a chance to live without the Wolf. Red and Sabrina become friends, giving Red the chance at a normal life. Jake gave Heart a chance to join the resistance (even though she didn't take it) And, in the end, Sabrina gave Mirror a chance to redeem himself because she forgave him. The final battle wasn't lame at all, in fact, I wouldn't have been happy if she killed him, forgiveness and love are better, every time.

So let me say it again.
I LOVE THIS BOOK.
I LOVE THIS SERIES.
I LOVE THESE CHARACTERS.
I LOVE THE ENDING.
