4.5/5 stars rounded up

This was even better than the first one.
Full of lessons that were so prevalent in Avatar, The Promise part 2 is a treasure for all of the true Avatar fans.
Can't wait to see what the conclusion brings.

Sokka is the greatest, just saying.

"Metal is just a part of the earth that's been purified and refined. But how does it becomes like that? By getting heated, melted, and pounded. By going through pressure and pain."

That got intense real quick. I started this second issue been a bit concerned... ok, a lot, about how things were gonna progress since the way things ended in the last one was not very reassuring, and I end it even more concern.

Yes, I already know how things are bound to end -thanks Legend of Korra - but the

Easily as good as part 1, although I could do without all the ‘sweetie’ comments. I especially enjoyed the developments towards the end of this volume and the cliff-hanger ending!

So happy I decided to give these books a try. I was craving the fun I had with the Airbender tv show up & these books definitely have the same vibe and fun level!

A war?!?!
These are good.
And Toph is still a bad-posterior.
On to the finale.

Again, I read this a while back, so I can't accurately say that I was surprised or anything, but there was one particular scene in here that was burned into my memories and I have never been able to forget. (view spoiler)

I did really like the parts with the metalbending students and Zuko's turmoil. I actually don't think I've read volume 3 before, so... here we go. 4/5 stars.
This was pretty enjoyable, but still had the sickeningly sweet romance that was in the first book. And there were some other small things I didn't like.

Katara and Aang still call each other sweetie, and Katara even gets jealous when they go to a fan club for Aang, full of excited, squealy girls. Based on what I saw from the TV show, I doubt that the romanca would move from a random kiss to calling each other those sorts of names. Nobody really uses those terms when they're in a relationship.

Another great Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novel! I loved the storyline of The Promise: Part Two, particularly because it featured two of my favourite ATLA characters: Zuko and Toph. I just love Zuko so so much. He is a precious smol bean. Bless him.

This one picks up where the last one left off. Aang and Katara go on their adventure to speak to the earth kingdom leaders. Toph trains her new recruits. Zuko deals with more political decisions with his father. The zuko stuff is easily the strongest bit, and getting more of his past is interesting. Aang stuff is good, funny here and there. Toph, who I usually love, gets a dull story here. While good, not as strong as volume 1.

Tooth’s students get sort of annoying and one-note, but everything else is solid. Zuko speaking with his father was great, the growing conflict between Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom was fabulous. There’s even nuance and fractures within each faction which was nice to see.

Sigh...what wouldn't I give to be trained under Toph! This graphic novel was beautifully scripted and illustrated. All my favourite characters coming back, just a teensy-tiny bit older (view spoiler) and having their epic adventures :)

Second Read:
This volume sets up the tension within the Avatar world. The Earth and Fire Kingdoms are on the brink of war and Aang is caught in the middle. Zuko has some tough choices ahead though his story lines are always awesome! On a brighter note, Toph and Sokka have some pretty cool moments with Toph's students. This issue felt exactly like an episode from the animated series, it was so good and makes me so excited to read the conclusion!

The men in this graphic novel/show I swear. I can feel my heart breaking a little as I read this. I absolutely love Zuko and he is going through so much in this graphic novel. At the same time, I find that I appreciate the fact that Zuko is going through all this. He has always struggled with the line between good and evil and I am loving seeing him struggle with it a bit as it makes him more human.
This part of the graphic novel was about trying to r

Better than part one! These are just so much fun, and I’ve been missing the show lately and these are perfect for dealing with that.


After reading part one of “Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise,” I was excited to check out the second part of this fantastic series and I was definitely not disappointed by the results of this volume!

What is this story about?

In this volume, after Fire Lord Zuko turns down the Harmony Restoration Movement for the Earth Kingdom, there seems to be an impeding war brewing between Zuko and Earth King Kuei and it is up to Aang and Katara to prevent that war from happening! M
So many funny parts in this one. Manly were Sokka is concerned.

But I think the build up for the potential war was being overshadowed by the metalbending school rivalry scenes and Aang and Katara's visit to see the Earth King. It was nonetheless, very amusing and appealing, I quite liked Aang's little marble Scooters. So cute. And OMG little Zuko, in Ozai's memory, But hold the phone are they trying to back us feel sorry for him? Well it worked on me.

We only get snap shot scenes of Zuko kind of

I really love these Avatar graphic-novels. They're a great way to dive back into the world of The Last Airbender, and they're just very fun.

The story continues with Aang trying to calm tensions between the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom. Zuko is having struggles with his identity, while Katara is going through some jealous phases over other girls swooning over Aang.

On the more funny and lighthearted note, I really liked the Sokka and Toph story line. It was very refreshing and funny to read a

Zuko keeps struggling to keep everything on balance (and failing miserably. Honestly, same), Toph and her students are about to fight for their right to be at their school (with Sokka’s help) and Aang and Katara make the trip to Ba Sing Se, to meet with the Earth King to figure out what to do next (warning: it doesn’t go well).

Tensions are growing. Will the avatar fail to keep his hard-won peace?

Loving these issues. Seeing Zuko struggling to do the right thing is just so him, for real. Sukko a

This was a really cute read too. But then again, it’s hard to go wrong with avatar. They just put so much thought and effort into the details of their stories and it really pays off.
