Part of the Graphic Novel Shopping Guide for Perplexed Parents of Tweens and Teens, Nov 2013 (imaginative look at fairy tales for grown-ups and almost-grown-ups, and fans of the TV show "Once Upon a Time")

This volume is separated in distinct sections and stories compared to the first two. This destroyed the fluidity and made it hard to follow.

When the volume started, it reminds me of Supernatural with the soul trading. I was pretty amused. And it got super intense and exciting when a reporter tried to expose the fables. I love how some of the fables characters had a heist to prevent the exposure to happen, but it felt short. To me it was a silly kind of heist, nothing that made you stop breathing. You know what everyone is going to be save and sound. But the plot was pretty interesting.

I do have to say that I am not a fan of the character Snow White. Every time she appeared in the volume, it was just politics, politics, blah, blah, blah. Boring! But as the story moved on, I hated her less, perhaps it was because she became more human to me. When Snow and Mr. Wolfe was in the forest, it reminded me of Twilight mix with the action of The Hunger Game. I wanted more! I was screaming in my head to "run, run, run", and "awwwww". It definitely left me wanting to read more to see how this "relationship" turns out.

I enjoyed the last section of the distinct section about SmallTown. The drawings were more cartoon than comics. It was very rustic and less defined, kind of like children's picture books. I was a little lost from the transition because I didn't understand how this story was connected to the previous one. It seemed like who ever created this volume just put this story in to fill in the space. :S But I did enjoyed the story.

Overall, I enjoyed this volume fairly much, 3.5 out of 5.

While entertaining, not in anyway as good as the first two. Nice to see Snow and Bigby get together at last, although I would have liked a slower romance.

The main storyline is moving swiftly and there's promise of major political shifts in Fabletown. Prince Charming gets an expanded role and Bigsby spends a lot of time in awesome wolf form. There are three shorts included, two I didn't care for and one that's a neat Fabletown caper incorporating fairytale magic. Also, hello gratuitous nudity, gore, and violence!

Prince Charming: I always truly love a woman when I'm first chasing her, but I'm only good at the chase, my love quickly faded once I had to settle down to the tough business of actually living with her.
