The war is over. So all those fairy tale characters who escaped from their worlds to take refuge in ours during the reign of "The Adversary" just might be able to return home. Unfortunately, The Adversary was actually keeping some even darker forces under control and now at least one of them is free. It has been a while since I read Fables; this is not as good as most of the earlier volumes, but a little better than the last. I was glad to see Willingham's version of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
