The Council of Mirrors(Sisters Grimm #9) by Michael Buckley

Overview from Barnes and Noble:

In the final volume in the Sisters Grimm series, Sabrina, Daphne, and the rest of the Grimms and their friends must face off against the Master to decide the fate of Ferryport Landing—and the world. When Mirror fails to escape the barrier using Granny Relda’s body, he turns to his plan B: killing all the Grimms so that the magical barrier collapses. In the meantime, Sabrina has gathered the other magic mirrors as advisers on how to deal with their mortal enemy. They tell her to join forces with the Scarlet Hand against Mirror, in exchange for offering all the citizens of Ferryport Landing their freedom. This final chapter is the end of the road for several beloved characters, but the conclusion is sure to satisfy devoted fans of the series.
My thoughts:
I was surprised that the series was ending, but I was satisfied with the conclusion.  I guess having these characters live with this kind of stress much longer might have gotten redundant.  Some very tough decisions had to be made in this book about fate, what it meant to be real,  personal desires and greater good, and how much we control our own destiny.
Mirror is inside of Granny Relda and unable to get our of the barrier, someone keeps taking the Book of Everafter from Daphne to make changes, a new, very unstable character has emerged from the Book of Everafter and Snow White's story and is making a lot of problems, and the Grimms have to decide who they can trust to work with them.  It was a fast paced story, with some surprises, and a nice conclusion to the nine book series.
