Tommy Taylor has been separated from his friends and is desperately trying to find a way back to them. He also needs to stop the ancient adversary, Pullman, from killing the legendary Leviathan once and for all, but is waylaid on his journey when the various witches and magical personages of Fabletown attempt to summon the greatest mage the worlds have ever seen, in order to stop the menace threatening their own realms. Tommy is pretty sure he’s not the person they’re looking for, but it’s clear that the remaining (and rapidly decreasing) citizens of Fabletown need all the help […]
Okay, first of all, what the hell has been going on in Fables while I’ve been away? Shit is MESSED UP. Second of all, this was way more of a Fables story than it was an Unwritten story, and it was a clunky Fables story at that. I haven’t checked in with Fables in years, and the last one I read was Vol. 6, Homelands.

It’s a Fables encyclopedia. But, more importantly, I made it!! I almost didn’t think I was going to. This has been wonderful fun. I’m definitely signing up for next year, except I’m only committing to a half Cannonball.

Thanks to everyone for the interesting reviews and to MsWas for keeping this ship afloat. I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year’s Eve and a great year ahead of them.
