Publisher: DC Comics 2003
Genre: Graphic Novel; Fantasy
Rating: 3 / 5 stars

How I Got It: borrowed from library
Definitely not as good as Legends in Exile, but still a good graphic novel. This story revolved around Fabletown’s non-human inhabitants. They attempt a takeover of control of Fabletown and hopefully the Homelands. Of course, not everything goes as planned. And Snow White and Rose Red are caught in the middle. The twists and turns and intrigue weren’t a surprise. I felt like I had read this story before. The plot was overdone and old. The characters were fairly interesting. However, Snow White was such a disappointment after her excellent debut. Read this volume in about an hour. It wasn’t a wasted hour, but definitely not the best. Here’s hoping that Volume 3 is better.
