This is it. The Fables have gone to war with the Empire.

I was a little conflicted about this volume; it's a fun read, sure, but I was a little disappointed that, after ten volumes of build-up, the war was finished in a single volume. That didn't seem like enough, and it seemed like a bit of an abrupt resolution to the main issue of the series so far.

The tale is told well, however, and it's lots of fun watching the action unfold, and seeing the Fables' strategies playing out. As in any war story, there's heroism and tragedy. There are battles and plenty of action. There are victories and defeats.

But it did feel rather condensed. I guess, though, if the war wasn't a long one, there's no reason to drag it out for the likes of me.
