Amazing!

This is one of the best books ever! Chris Colfer narrates it wonderfully and the story line is fantastic. My favourite moment is when they go to the giant's castle because Chris makes the cat so funny to listen to that I laugh out loud at points. I definitely recommend this book and the whole series because it is really funny and just a fabulous book!

You will go down a rabbit hole

If you have reach book two, you already know that the world Mr Colfer has created is intriguing and fantastic, you will also know that Chris Colfer is a great narrator, but what you need to know about book two is this, this is it, you will want to know what happens next, so just go ahead and get book 3 while you’re at it... loads of new great characters and voices to be enjoyed and the story just gets better and better!
Enjoy!

An amazing audio book!

I really enjoyed it and I couldn't stop listening. Surely the narrator wasn't Chris Colfer?

Fast paced and Fun! Couldn't put it down!

Even though this is a children's book, I am a 35-year old adult who loved it!
Chris' performance is even better (if possible) than the one in his first book. 5 well deserved stars!

This being the second and a continuation to the story, I kind of expected it to be similar to the first. It is a continuation to the story, but it is so much better, there are so many adventures, and some of the characters even had personal growth.

It was very nice to see Alex and Connor grow into these great teens who are already seeking for their life career's.

There are character's from the first one who you will miss, but you will be delighted to hear about the new ones too.

I wish I could have finished it in one sitting. This book is frontier fun for the whole family.
If you want something fun to do with the kids, I'd recommend listening to this book with them. To tell you the truth, I still keep thinking about it. Nice job, Chris Colfer! Waiting anxiously for the next one now.

Some of the book reminds me of my book

If you could sum up The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns in three words, what would they be?

I like the part about the past present and future it sounds familiar like out of my book Elven Magic i think my angle is better though still the voices you act out are good but not as good as my voices in my head... look forward to the next one but the first one is better the sloth stuff is a funny one i hope it doesn't run into diablo though...

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most... goldilocks on the run.... least... sloth stuff 7 sins

Have you listened to any of Chris Colfer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

It's not as good as the first

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No
