Yay! Wolves!!!

One of my favorite characters, Bigby is the focus, but in addition, really good plot development, and yes, a Happily Ever After ending ( )

It's not as bad as the previous volume, but this is still tepid stuff. Willingham is now displaying his politics in bright, blazing colors - he literally stops the story dead to go into a pro-Israel rant - and the misogyny present in the Bigby/Snow White relationship has come to the fore. (It's really somewhat distressing, too, because I expected it to be a slightly eye-rolling point of conflict, not the lead-in to their wedding!) Frankly, Willingham needs to step away from the soap operatics and focus on the war storyline; I don't agree with every political comparison he's making, but at least I feel like he knows where he's going. The relationship stuff is weak in comparison. ( )

Mowgli continues his search for Bigby through Russia and the wilderness. Meanwhile, Snow White tries to raise the cubs at the Farm.


Mowgli finds Bigby and convinces him to come back to Fabletown for one last mission. Cinderella has negotiated a treaty with the Cloud Kingdom, so Bigby is able to climb a beanstalk, travel through the clouds, and land right in the Adversary's Empire. He burns down the Sacred Grove, and in thanks Fabletown gives him a valley where he and Snow can live together with their shape-changing cubs. He and Snow reunite and get married. It's all very saccharine...none of it had any tension or stress. Even Bigby's mission to destroy the Adversary's greatest resource felt lackluster. ( )
