This volume contains two long story arcs with The Great Fables Crossover and Werewolves of the Heartland being included in their entirety of 9 episodes each. The first of these deals with the continuation of the stories featured in Fables and Jack of Fables as well as adding in The Literals. Snow & Bigby are sent to investigate the veracity of Jack's claim of a threat to all of the Fables everywhere with Kevin Thorn about to write them out of their very existence. Gary and Revise tag along to add their assistance and they all meet up with the Page sisters who are also on Kevin's trail but have become bogged down in a fire-fight with the Genre's. Can they get through and reach Kevin in time before he sets pen to paper? Jack meanwhile has managed to insinuate himself not only into Rose Red's bed but also the position of De-facto leader at the Farm. That's not going to end well is it?

Werewolves is a side-story focusing on, as you might imagine, Bigby Wolf. He has been tasked at scouting new locations to replace the newly destroyed Fabletown and also to investigate a place called Story Town. Bluebeard was funding some kind of operation there and King Cole wants to know what it was. Bigby is surprised to find an old war buddy running the town and even more so when he meets his wife. When last he's seen them they were fighting on opposite sides and Bigby had left them both for dead when a castle had fallen down on them all.

It seems that this series doesn't do endings very well. After all the build up in actually getting to the closure of a major story arc I keep finding myself asking the question "Is that it?". It was still a decent volume in the series and the diversion of the second story was also well delivered but I can't help feeling a little let down when all is said and done. ( )
