Sabrina finally comes to terms with her Grimm heritage. Sabrina and Daphne's mother, Veronica, was secretly being helpful even while her Henry was trying to avoid that same heritage.

Fairy godmothers and godfathers are low on the totem pole as far as regular fairies are concerned. Moth from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is a haughty shrew who is the reason Puck left home. ( )

I enjoy these books, but I find it frustrating how un-self-contained the stories are. You really need to have all the books ready so you can go straight from one to the next. ( )

Great adventure & really moved the plot along fun! Am a little weirded out by the budding romance but I'm willing to go along.

My friend Jenne once said that all books are better with a giant robot. This book has a giant Wicked Witch robot that climbs the Empire State Building, a la King Kong. Four stars right there.

Oh, and the rest of the book is good too. ( )

This fantasy series is getting better and better as it goes on (just as I wrote about the previous book in the series). ( )

"GET OFF THE STREETS!" SABRINA CRIED. "There's a monster coming!"

"Do you people want to get squashed?" Daphne shouted, but the pedestrians were used to ignoring screaming lunatics. Daphne turned to Granny Relda with a panicked face. "They won't listen!"

Granny Relda took the girls by the hand. "They will. Run, children!"

The girls shared a nervous glance as they raced down the sidewalk, pushing through the crowd and calling out warnings to anyone who would listen. As far as Sabrina knew, her grandmother had never run from anything. She was the bravest woman Sabrina and her sister had ever met. Soon, the family came to an intersection and stopped in their tracks. They weren't on the quaint streets of Ferryport Landing anymore; this was the big city. If they tried to cross against the light, a truck or a speeding taxi would flatten them. While they waited anxiously, Sabrina took a quick look back, in time to see the entire front of the building they had just been standing in collapse. A huge leg stepped through the rubble. The people around them paused, then let out a collective scream.

"They're paying attention now," Sabrina muttered.

With a dreadful pounding, the gigantic creature freed itself of the store. Its lantern eye scanned the streets far below and fixed on Sabrina.

"I'll get you, my pretty," the monster cried, then lifted one of its enormous, pointed shoes and kicked a taxicab out of the way, sending it slamming into a light pole and then skidding into the intersection, where it crashed into a newspaper delivery truck.

A wave of terror rolled through the crowded street; pedestrians turned as one mass and rushed toward Sabrina and her family. Many people were looking back as they ran; a young woman knocked Daphne to the ground in her panic. If the monster didn't kill the Grimms, Sabrina realized, they would be trampled to death by the mob.
For my mother, Wilma Cuvelier

The explosion shook Sabrina Grimm so hard she swore she felt her brain do a somersault inside her skull.
