For the most part, I really liked this. It deals primarily with the fallout of Mr. Dark razing Fabletown; we learn a little bit more about his past, and exactly how much of a threat he is to the Fables. The book also focuses on some of the themes Willingham's been dealing with since the start - on the might of unlikely heroes, and on shifting political realities. I wasn't sure how much I was going to like it, as I'm unfamiliar with the stories that some of the main characters come from (Ozma and Baba Yaga, specifically), but they're presented in a way that doesn't matter.

What bummed me out about it, though, was that the main story ends on a cliffhanger, and then there's a two-part story after it about King Ambrose in Haven. I can understand why he may have wanted to tell it that way, but it absolutely kills the narrative flow.
