First sentence:

A mess! A great big filthy mess!

Acquired: Received a copy through ILL.

Reason for Reading: Next in the series.

Comments: This is a big issue and I mean that literally and metaphorically. It's a nice, hefty book containing ten issues with nine of those continuing the title story. In the middle there is a one issue intermission that centres on the cubs. The main story, though, without giving anything away, focuses on a minor character who has been around since Vol. 1: Flycatcher, whose real name is Ambrose, and is better known to mundies as the prince who was once turned into a frog. Prince Ambrose takes centre stage and the action switches between him and the resident Fables as he undertakes a very important journey and mission. This book is a turning point in the series. Things will not be the same from the point forward. This was a fabulous issue! I loved it and am more eager than usual (if that is possible) to get my hands on the next volume.


  1. Yay, FABLES! I received the newest book in the mail the other night, but I haven't had time to read it yet...

  2. From what I've heard it joins Fables and Jack of Fables together storywise, right?

    That's what I've been lead to believe anyway so I was planning on reading the 6 Jack of Fables books before reading the newest one. Also thought I might as well read the novel since it was published first.

    I'm kind of a stickler for reading things in published order. So I don't miss out on an insider reference or two. LOL
