It's hard to call this the peak of FABLES, to date, especially since the most recent trade, "Sons of Empire" was potentially as good. But this book holds up after multiple reads. Boy Blue tearing his way through the Homelands in an attempt to assassinate the Adversary and rescue his friend, Pinocchio, as well as his long-lost love.

Through five volumes we never saw Boy Blue as a soldier. We hear stories about how these people fought in the Homelands and catch glimpses of what they can do in "March of the Wooden Soldiers" but until this collection, Bigby Wolf was the series' lone bad-ass. And then Boy Blue shows us what some of the other Fables are truly capable of. And it's terrifyingly and witty and perfectly constructed.
