After eight books of magical adventures, Michael Buckley’s hit Sisters Grimm series comes to its thrilling conclusion in book nine, The Council of Mirrors.

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, Sabrina has gathered the other magic mirrors as advisors on how to deal with their mortal enemy. They tell her to join forces with the Scarlet Hand against Mirror, in exchange for offering all the citizens of Ferryport Landing their freedom.

This final chapter is the end of the road for several beloved characters, but the conclusion is sure to satisfy devoted fans of the series.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Like the finale of Harry Potter, Michael Buckley ends this popular series with a hint of romance and a peek at the future—a glimpse of the much older Daphne and Sabrina Grimm. L. J. Ganser, has…superb diction and the ability to make clear distinctions between the dozens of characters. Overall, a satisfying listen.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

    " A good conclusion to an enjoyable series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/19/2014

    " Michael Buckley is one of the great writers who can produce novels that appeal to children but are also enjoyable for adults. I have enjoyed this series following the spunky Grimm sisters as they attempted to bring peace to the fairy tale characters trapped in a small NY town. I didn't think that this book was the best of the series, but it did plausibly tie up loose ends and provide a glimpse into the future of Ferryport Landing and the Grimm family. I appreciate that this series does not talk down to kids and also provides strong, smart female protagonists having adventures that may appeal to fairy-tale loving girls. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miranda | 2/10/2014

    " It was nice to read a real ending to a series. Not a bad way to wrap things up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 1/31/2014

    " I was never the Target audience for this series so it's not surprising that I personally found the end of this book anticlimactic. Still, the ending felt slightly forced like the Author just wasn't sure how to wrap it up, but had to do it anyways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 1/10/2014

    " Such a cute, fun, wholesome series. The audiobooks are fun because the narrator does such a great job with the different characters' voices and accents, but I have to recommend the physical books if you can get them. My sister showed me her copies - lucky girl has the entire series - and I was so thrilled to see the magical illustrations! A treasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/10/2014

    " I loved this series. I think I would have enjoyed the final book even more, though, if I reread the earlier books. There were parts where I just couldn't quite remember the details from previous books to make sense of things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 12/29/2013

    " Mostly satisfying conclusion to a solid series. Rather high body count (albeit non-human fairy tale folk) for a YA book. "

    " This was an ending to a series that didn't make me mad!!! I loved this whole series and will continue to recommend it for years to come. I am sad to say goodbye to Ferryport Landing and all it's wonderful characters, but most of all I am going to miss Puck! "
