This series is very consistent, and the wedding was quite nice. The reference to Israel was a little weird, though. ( )

It's been over two years since I broke off reading 'Fables' because I'd reached the end of my library's collection. A chance spotting at a used bookstore allowed me to snag the next two books in line.

There are couple of hanging plot threads I need to reacquaint myself with, but this was a great collection and I'm sad it took me so long to get to it. The main plot is, of course, Mowgli tracking down Bigby and bringing him back to Fabletown for a special mission. That mission is awesome.

I also liked the Cloud Kingdom subplot that brought more intrigue into play - and I love Cinderella.

There's not much else I can say, since I don't want to spoil anything. Its hard to believe that this story isn't even halfway through - not even counting the spinoffs. Worth checking out and worth the wait.


Next: 'Sons of Empire'

I've only been waiting FOREVER for more Bigby action!!! After Bigby's self-exile from Fabletown, Prince Charming decides that enough is enough. He sends Mowgli to track down where in the world the wolf went. Prince Charming has a plan and he can't do it without Bigby. He promises to find a way for Bigby to be with Snow White and their children, which is all that Bigby really wanted anyways. The task he's given is beyond dangerous but he's definitely the man for the job. Nothing will get between him and his family. ( )

This is an outstanding book! It very nearly stands alone from the series; there's enough history woven into it to make the story make sense. But I think having read the previous books makes this one all the richer.

I don't entirely like how Bigby's face is drawn - in a lot of frames, he seems to have forgotten to put in his dentures. But that's the closest to a complaint I have about the art; it's otherwise outstanding. Some of the cover art is breath-taking.

And I do believe I have a massive crush on Mowgli. He's all grown up and terribly appealing in this series. I hope we get to see more of him (and I don't just mean his body, but I won't cry about that either) in the next books. ( )
