The Council of Mirrors (The Sisters Grimm #9)
In the final volume in the Sisters Grimm series, Sabrina, Daphne, and the rest of the Grimms and their friends must face off against the Master to decide the fate of Ferryport Landing—and the world. When Mirror fails to escape the barrier using Granny Relda’s body, he turns to his plan B: killing all the Grimms so that the magical barrier collapses. In the meantime, Sabrin...more

Wow... I mean...Wow!
This was crazy! I really can't believe it's the end! I'm gonna start them all over right now.
I've been waiting far too long for this book! And May 8th 2012?! Do you wish to torture me, Mr. Buckley?!
I loved it. I really loved it. It was so awesome. I would have liked it if (view spoiler)[Sabrina had killed Mirror with her epic magical power she acquired for a few minutes instead of with kindness, but y'know, kindness is okay too (hide spoiler)] and (view spoiler)[Puck had swallowed his pride ...more
It's time for the final battle.
There's almost no one left to fight, but they'll fight anyway.
Witches, fairies, knights, bears, princesses, and more, but what it really comes down to is two girls.
Together, the Mirrors have presented a prophecy that states that the only hope to survive and defeat the First is the skills and determination of the Sisters Grimm: Sabrina and Daphne.
Unfortunately, Sabrina can't bring herself to believe that she and her sister ca ...more
I can't explain myself.
I think the beginning was pretty good, it started out well, re-introduced us to the main problems and how they were going to solve them - then, BAM, ACTION.
After that, the story was a big blur of secrets and revealing and dialogue and plotting things out, but I kept n thinking as I read the book "Who is this Sabrina?" because she changes so much through the course of events. I especially love how Puck tells her th ...more
Basically, this book is the last installment for the Sisters Grimm series and I must say, I’m completely, perfectly, undeniably disappointed on the ending. I've expected a lot of things from this book. I mean it’s the ending. It should be like a huge grand finale for the series I had loved and adored! But I was wrong.
There’s still adventure and it radiated what books did when you were readin ...more
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE BOOK TO COME OUT!!! I mean, I really love the series and all but this is already like the ninth book in the series. Most readers will not even consider reading a series if it has more than six books in it.But, back to the main point...
CAN'T WAIT 'TILL MAY 8TH!!!
This year I have a group of students reading the series - "Mrs. Eaves, I couldn't believe it when I got to the end 'to be continued.' How could they!" I went to the bookstore yesterday in search of The Council of Mirrors. I knew it was supposed to be "the ...more
BUT. Honestly. This saga could easily have been covered in 3 or 4 books, not nine. You think J.K. Rowling overwrites? If you cut out the excess verbiage in The Council of Mirrors alone, the book could be reduced ...more
The Sisters Grimm and the Mystic Kettle of Nackledirk (or, why I hate two-star books): A Pompously-Titled and Overly-Italicized Review.
As soon as I finished the final Sisters Grimm book, I groaned. I knew that this was going to be frickkin' long review. Why? Because I'd assigned it the rating I fear most:
The dreaded 2-star.
Why do 2-star ratings make me mad?
"I giv ...more
DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK
i have been reading the sisters grimm since I was in primary ( quite a while ago) and to have it end is like a part of me being ripped out ( not talking about horcruxs) Well. Where do I start? I seriously thought it was one big fanfiction story, it just didn't seem right:( some characters REALLY changed (ahem red, puck) and i didn't really like it. I found this book seriously like the everafter war. It seemed to go nowh ...more
First of all, I would like to say that I have read and enjoyed books 1 through 8 of the Sisters Grimm series. Most of the characters were likeable, the scenarios were entertaining, and the battle was, if nothing else, interesting. That being said, I was disappointed with the conclusion, in particular the ending. The battle/war scenes were well written, but some of the plot twists, such as the death scene after the wedding, were predictable. The ending, though predictable, could ...more
Now I freak out over the events that happened.
OMGOMGOMGOMG SABRINA AND PUCK DO GET MARRIED!!! HE CRASHED HER WEDDING AT THE END AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
I figured they would become Everafters...couldn't imagine Sabrina dying and Puck living after they get ...more
Oh my freaking god!!! I freaking loved this book!!! It was funny, action-packed, and so twisting. At the very end (thirteen years later) when Sabrina is about to get married to a guy ned Bradley, I was like, what the hell????!!! I thought Sabrina was going to marry Puck. But Puck ends up coming to the wedding. Then it has another thirteen years later after that part and Sabrina is married with two daughters: Alison and Emma. She hears a scream and Sabrina and her other daughter Emma rush in to ...more
The series has had some ups and downs, and this conclusion wasn't perfect. There were times that I felt that the author was stretching things a little, and a few continuity errors that the boys noticed, too. I ...more
Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are descendants of one half of the Brothers Grimm and it’s their duty to keep their eyes on the Everafter Community.
Everafter has taken up resident in Ferryport Landing and the town is being destroyed by ...more
Since this is a series that I'm sad to see end, I'll list some of the things I loved about it.
1. The illustrations. Just like the cover images only in black and white ...more
Since I will forever and always think in multiple choice, I have taken the liberty of doing this review that way.
A.) Sabrina did not devlop enough as a character for me. She was always angry and unsure and I HATE that in a character, just because I think that once in a while, an author can come up with a better flaw.
B.) How the Grimms dealt with Mirror. I mea ...more
Once upon a time there was a girl named Mallory who got a call from Sabrina Grimm in Ferryport Landing.
"Hello? Is this Mallory?" Sabrina said through the phone static.
"It is," replied Mallory blowing out bubbles from her smoke pipe.
"I could really use your help. My granny has been captured and possessed by an evil mirror. We need you to stop him and free my granny!" Sabrina cried.
Mallory checked her calendar. "I suppose I have time to run ...more
Without giving away too much, I will say this one reminded me very much of "A Wrinkle in Time," which is awesome because that is one of my favorites. It was a dynamic I hadn't considered before, but Sabrina Grimm is very Meg Murry-like. And Daphne, with her magical abilities that Sabrina lacks is Charles Wallace-like and, ...more
I was obsessed with The Sisters Grimm all throughout elementary and middle school. I wrote fanfiction about this series. Reading this book was like stepping back into those times. Holy hell.
I'm really glad that Buckley found a way to save Granny, however cheesy the "defeating Mirror with love" gig was. Because I struggled forever while writing my fanfiction, and I eventually ended up having Sabrina sacrifice Granny to stop Mirror from ...more
This was a very solid ending to the series. Either this book is a bit darker than the others (ie: a lot more deaths) or I am just not remembering the others correctly. Maybe they got darker as they went. Because of all the deaths, this is not for the younges ...more

Henry put his arm around Sabrina. "You're officially grounded from ever getting married."
"Thank you," Sabrina whispered sincerely.”
