Very good! The end was the weakest point. It tied everything up a bit too neatly for me. I really enjoyed it though! Looking forward to reading vol. 2! ( )

The first volume of the series Fables, picked up at the library after being recommended to me.

The premise is that the members of the fairy tale (Fable) community have been exiled from the Homeland by a creature called the Adversary and are now taking refuge in New York.

The artwork is wonderful, the plot rather interesting, and there are a lot of fine tidbits for a folklore loving person to pick up. While the plot of the first volume is more of a murder mystery than anything fantastical, I'm looking forward to seeing where the next few books lead.

This is a compelling, fun, very modern take on our fairy tale heritage. I enjoyed it and plan to read the entire run. ( )
