Colfer's newest series is set in the same universe as The Land of Stories, so if you loved that, you'll definitely want to try this series. When a teen discovers a book hidden in the library that teaches her forbidden magic, she is whisked off to--you guessed it--a magical school where she will learn to be a fairy. Again, all is not as it seems. Despite following many standard magical tropes, Colfer's fans will appreciate his expansive storytelling and ability to explore different areas of the enchanting universe he's created.
