This one has more meat to the story with picking up with Bodkin in Oz and the choosing of a new North Wind. Even with all of that happening in the book there is not a ton of action since Mr Dark has been taken care of. You do have to wonder about the Bigby and Snow's other children with the prophesy and how that will all be handled. ( )

One of my favorite in the recent runs of this series--one of the cubs (and not the expected one!) is chosen as the new North Wind, Rose Red is troubled by Hope, and a turtle carries it's soul in a teacup. Certainly not all that's covered in this volume, but a few of my favorite pieces. Willingham and co. continue to enthrall with this series. ( )

Bigby and Snow's cubs are doing “tests” to see who will take over from The North Wind, Bigby's father, as King. The other winds aren't happy with this idea. Elsewhere, Bufkin the flying monkey, is wanting a revolution in Oz.

I often have differing opinions on the different storylines, so it's hard to come up with a rating. I quite enjoyed the cubs' storyline, but Bufkin's wasn't as interesting to me. There was a short Christmas story at the end, which I really liked! I am trying not to give ¼ or ¾ stars, anymore, but in order to fit my rating in better with the other books in the series, I am doing that this time. It would have stayed at a 3.5 rating, except the Christmas story raised it up a bit. ( )

In the aftermath of the last adventures, the story turns to several dissimilar storylines with Bufkin, Rose Red, and the Bigby Wolf family each having their own adventures. Because it's a bunch of stories, it comes off as a bit disjointed. Still great reading and it left me with a few cliff hangers that have me wanting to read more. ( )

I used to be really into the Fables series, but this had been languishing on my shelves for some time and I realised after reading it that I had actually skipped a volume and not noticed. The title story is actually rather nice - the six/seven children of Snow White and Bigby are in competition to see which will become the new North Wind after the death of the incumbent, though the East, West and South Winds are rather unfortunate racial stereotypes. The other stories in the book are linked with the grander narrative, which I'd lost track of. Not a volume for newcomers to the series, which to be honest might have been better brought to a close after the grand conflict in volume 11. ( )
