A mystery story with a monstrous twistIn book three of the series, Sabrina and Daphne Grimm tackle their most important mystery: Who kidnapped their parents more than a year ago? Sabrina enters the hideout of the Scarlet Hand, the sinister group of Everafters who are keeping her parents prisoner. She has a chance to rescue her mom and dad but is foiled by the most famous fairy-tale character in the world. With the help of her little sister (who might be tougher than Sabrina realizes) and a long-lost relative, Sabrina finds a powerful weapon for fighting her enemies, and discovers that magic has a high price.

    This third book was sincerely better than the first ones, but I didn't really like it...
    The things about it that I appreciate are Puck, my favorite character so far, and the list of fairy-talesque inmates in the Asylum - it is hilarious. And the reference to the Andersen's descendants - but it is just a reference for now, indeed.
    Besides that, I don't like how massive the use of magic is, and overall these books are to short and superficial (kind of).
    Sabrina here is like in the first book, obnoxious. I can understand that magic in this series is like drugs, it creates addiction, but in book two, where I stood for her, she was like "Everyone here uses magic to resolve their problems!", and in book three, "I need more of my precious!". But fortunately she is freed from her addiction by the end (I think).
    And the true identity of the Blue Fairy from the Pinocchio story by Carlo Collodi, hidden character, is obvious, so no surprise there.
    In the end, I have so great expectations for the next book, Once upon a crime. :)
