liked it

A lot of potential ruined by rushing a war that's been gearing up for nearly the entire run of the series.

Pros: Fabletown's well-planned tactics, the design of the airship, Prince Charming's issues-long character arc

Cons: A little too neatly wrapped up, no sense of danger for major characters due to the flashback narrative style, an uncharacteristic "oh, our hubris has doomed us all" shared moment of self-realization within the Empire

While I still eagerly read the entire book in one sitting, the story would have benefited if it were longer and more cinematic in its presentation - the excessive narration killed many opportunities for tension.
