As the war with the Empire grows closer, Prince Ambrose, otherwise known as Flycatcher, has regained his memories of what happened to his family, and wants to find some way to revenge them. Fly’s one of the kindest people in Fabletown, so it almost doesn’t seem possible that he could find a way to do this, but this book is the story of how he gains the power to keep a kingdom safe, and thus become a king.
I think what I really love about this series is how it takes these fairy tale characters and turns them into real people, and then turns them around again to be better than regular people, to be truly larger than life. There are other stories in this book, mostly of the other Fables preparing for the current war, but Fly’s story is larger than life, and so thoroughly wonderful to read. I love these books. Absolutely love them.
