4.0 out of 5 stars Back into the world of Avatar Feb. 4 2012
By Fantasy's Ink TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
For those that don't know, Avatar: The Last Airbender is a popular animated TV series about a world of element benders. The series ended three years ago and in 2012 a new spin-off series The Legend of Korra will be released. Author Gene Yang has collaborated with the two creators of the show for a trilogy of graphic novels that will be set in between Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. As a fan of the series, I was beyond excited when I heard the news for the graphic novels and was ecstatic when I was given a chance to review the book and see an early look.

The Promise Part 1 starts right where the last episode of the series ended, and I mean right after. We see that perhaps the world is not in peaceful as they thought it would be. Zuko, now the Fire Lord, is finding it especially difficult to deal with the demands of being the Fire Lord and protecting his country. We see the full conversation between Zuko and Ozai - when Zuko asks Ozai where his mother is in the series. Team Avatar of course all appear in the graphic novel and I give the artist high points for drawing the characters as they appeared in the TV series but still giving them each a new look.

Sadly though, I felt that the Graphic Novel was too short - a mere 82 pages - and I felt that nothing really happened, I have a feeling the other 2 Graphic Novels in the trilogy will have a similar length and if that's the case, it would have been better off it they just combined all of them together to make one graphic novel. There was also quite a lot of bending fights in the graphic novel and although it was pretty cool it just didn't flow very well, which was a bit of a disappointment when you compare it to the epic fights of the show.

Such a great addition to the series! Still upset 'Zutara' didn't happen, but can't be too picky. I brought this in to a ESL class with 12-13 year olds and they love it. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars After the war ends Feb. 22 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"Avatar: The Last Airbender" ended with peace being reestablished between the four elemental nations -- but there were still some dangling threads. "The Promise Part 1 (Avatar: The Last Airbender Book Four)" picks up where the series left off, and addresses the problems of restoring the Fire Nation to how it should be -- especially when not everyone agrees what that is.

Now that there is peace between the Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom, Zuko implements the "Harmony Restoration Movement" (named by Sokka) -- the Fire Nation will relocate colonists who have been living in the Earth kingdom for the past century. And while everyone is celebrating, Zuko also extracts a promise from Aang: if he ever becomes like his father, he wants Aang to kill him.

But after an assassination attempt, Zuko unexpectedly withdraws the Harmony Restoration Movement. It turns out to be a little more complicated than Zuko expected -- the Fire Nation citizens there have intermarried with the Earth Kingdom people, and don't want to be uprooted from their homes. Now not only must Aang and Zuko deal with colonials who don't want to leave, but also with "freedom fighters" who want the Fire Nation gone.

"The Promise Part 1 (Avatar: The Last Airbender Book Four)" is a story that I would love to see translated into an animated movie -- there's a feeling of warm, comfy familiarity in seeing all our old characters reunited again. It springs pretty seamlessly from the end of the TV series, showing where the characters have gone since and the troubles of a post-war world.

Find out what happened to Aang and everyone else after the end of the series.

A must-read for any Avatar fan. As always: great illustrations, wonderful story, and captivating world of benders. Definitely a nice way to keep busy until the next season of Korra is released.
