Reading Challenges: Fables Series

The Siege of the Golden Boughs occurs in which Bookburner’s army attacks Revise’s compound. Jack returns not as a prisoner but as its Commander in chief. A further explanation of the Literals, and their extended family of characters who symbolize literary notions is explored. Secrets and setups are revealed such as the relationships between Jack and the Page sisters.

Back to Jack’s big story involving Golden Boughs and the Bookburner.  I loved this volume.  It had it all: action, romance, drama, cliffhangers, comedy.  We finally learn about the connection between the Bookburner and Revise and all the Literals.  I love how they’ve expanded the world beyond the Fables.  We are getting to see how all the worlds are connected and in fact rely on one another to survive. That’s something that the Bookburner fails to grasp.  if he succeeds in destroying all the Fables, what does he then do?  He would have no purpose, no goal.  He would cease to exist.  Interesting concept…  I am continually amazed by how well written this series and the parent series, Fables, are.  I love them to pieces.
