Rose Red, sister of Snow White, has finally hit rock bottom. Does she stay there, or is it time to start the long, tortuous climb back up? The Farm is in chaos, as many factions compete to fill the void of her missing leadership. And there’s a big magical fight brewing down in the town square, right under her window.
Another great addition to the Fables series. This one had so many storylines, and I loved every single one. That’s not always the case. Of course we get the main storyline of Rose Red’s triumphant return. But we also get Beauty and Beast’s baby, Bellflower’s (Frau Totenkinder) battle with Mr. Dark, an interesting meeting with the North Wind, and a few shorts after the move to Haven. I loved it! The best part… the beautiful illustrations. This volume included the series’ 100th issue. The artwork for that issue was too beautiful not to share. So, I made it my button for this year’s challenge. Enjoy!
