Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile when a savage creature known as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales. These magical characters now disguise themselves as normal citizens in modern-day New York and around the world.

In this volume, Pinocchio suffers seriously divided loyalties between his father, the evil Adversary, and his fellow Fable refugees in New York. Discover what he does while his father hosts a secret conference of the imperial elite to decide the ultimate fate of Fabletown. Plus, Bigby Wolf reluctantly decides it's finally time to square accounts with his long-estranged father, the North Wind and makes a journey with Snow White and their kids to find him.

Review:

"Willingham and Co. continue to astound....Sons of Empire is a great book and more proof that Fables is the best ongoing fantasy series in print — comic [or] otherwise." Paperback Reader

Review:

"This is all more entrancing than it may sound. Short-short stories featuring minor Fables and the still-flowering stylishness of Mark Buckingham's drawing enjoyably relieve the general somberness." Booklist

Review:

"[U]tterly superb....If you've yet to experience one of the true highlights of modern-day comics, by all means don't start with this collection, but the very first. Work your way up; you'll be richly rewarded and solidly entranced." Bookgasm

This Fables volume is mainly a bunch of short one or two-issue arcs, setting things up for the next major plot development. This doesn't make it any less entertaining to read, but it did make me impatient for the next volume.
