This series was recommended to me when I asked for suggestions on Facebook. It took me a while to start them, but once I did I didn't want to put them down.

THE COLLECTORS' SOCIETY was a great introduction to the series. I loved the alternate take on the different fairy tales and the way the author brought them to life.

THE HIDDEN LIBRARY started off  a little slow, but kept me guessing. I enjoyed diving more into her character and learning more about her past. I have to admit that I was truly heartbroken to learn all that Alice has had to give up and endure. 

THE FORGOTTEN MOUNTAIN wasn't my favorite of the series. A few things got a bit tiresome and boring at times and I didn't feel like there was a lot of progression in book three.

I can't say the series ended like I expected in THE LOST CODEX, but it totally worked.  I would love to read more in this world, but it ended well.

I loved all of the characters. Again, I found it so neat the way the author made their stories and characters come to life and the different spins she put on them. The romance was great. I have to admit that once I found out about the White King I was kind of sad that him and Alice had to part and was kinda looking for a way for them to be together again. BUT I really fell in love with Alice and Finn and couldn't imagine either with any other characters.

This is one of those series that I would love to see come to life on the big screen. I would pre-buy my tickets and be in the first showing.

I gave the series 4/5 stars
