As you may or may not know, I live in Europe. When it comes to (pre)ordering books, I might as well live in Narnia. The past 3-4 years have proven that it's very hard -impossible, in fact- to get my hands on a copy of new TLOS books on the actual day of release. Shipping hassle takes somewhere from 14 days up to 2 months (!).
This means that I cannot/will not be updating TLOS6-relevant infos on the days immediately following its release. (Current estimation of delivery here is July 20th...)
If YOU are one of the lucky ones to have your book on the 11th of July (my birthday, actually...), you are very welcome to post a chapter-by-chapter plot recap (or anything else you want), but please keep it in the relevant sections (Worlds C…Read more >
Plot, unreliable narrator, or plothole?
In TLOS1, the Fairy Godmother tells the twins that her husband died shortly before her son John was born. (ch 24, p. 430)
In TLOS4, we learn she has a younger son, Lloyd, and that he was very upset when his father died.(Prologue, p 7)
What does this mean?
A) The FG was lying to Alex and Conner about the time of her husband's death to hide the fact that she had another son.
B) Lloyd has a different father.
C) TLOS1 was originally going to be the only book Chris would write about the fairy tale world, and the plot involving Lloyd was created after the release of TLOS1, thus retconning the FG's words.

The Dwarf Forests
After the Dragon Age, the Land of Stories went into the Age of Magic and the world was divided into kingdoms. One area was apparently not ‘claimed’ by any of the royal fairy tale families: the Dwarf Forests. Why was that?
Froggy describes it as a dangerous place full of criminals and fugitives. At least 3 witches live(d) there (and the sneak preview from tlos4 mentions a lot more witches..!). Ezmia persuades the woodland villains from the forest to join her, and General Marquis musters for his army from the forest. The dwarfs seem friendly enough (?).
Were the royals afraid to claim the territory? Or is there a ruling order we don’t know about?
Will we learn more in Beyond the Kingdoms? :)

As you probaby know, there are about 2 or 3 other wikias about TLOS out there, in various states of care. One of them, http://thelandofstories.wikia.com/, hasn't been edited in a long time. I have left the most recent users this message:
Hi! I am contacting you because you are one of the last active users of the The Land of Stories wikia. I have noticed that this wiki hasn't been edited in a long time, and I was wondering if you'd be okay with merging it with a more active TLOS wiki:
I think the URL of your wiki is a lot more accessible to users looking for information on The Land of Stories. Combined with our content, we might get a lot more traffic and generate a more active user community of Chri…
