Once again a great continuation of the Avatar: The Last Airbender storyline after season 3 and the other 2 books published by Dark Horse: The Search and The Promise. Beautifully drawn and colored, this next chapter is certainly worth a fan's time. The hardcover binding is, however, still cheap. The same used in the other 2 books. It cracks and unglues easily. The pages are oversized once again to accommodate notes from the artists and writers... Unfortunately there are very few in this one which was disappointing. The story and art gets a 5/5 stars but the book itself only a 3/5 so the score above is the average between the two. Recommended.

I LOVE the hardcover library edition of the avatar books. I don' often buy graphic novels anymore, just due to finances, and other hobbies, but I am a big Avatar fan, and love these. The nice big pages are beautiful to look at, and the additions of artist or writer commentary, as they plan a paticular scene or have a certain thought, I enjoy, lets you see a bit of their thought process. As well, having one big edition, hardcover, compared to three smaller editions paperback, just looks nicer on a shelf, and the hardcover has the extra lifespan to it, since it wont wear down or bed as much.

My favourite part? The story itself. A lot happens between the end of The Last Airbender, and The Legend of Korra. Some of what happens, like the building of Republic city, is covered or mentioned in The Legend of Korra, but these books help to flesh out what happens between these two points a bit more, adding more backstory and history to the Avatar universe.

Love the fact that one of my favorite shows didn't just end the story !! Love watching the gang grow up! Also these books are absolutely stunning. From the full color print to the thick pages and great size they are a beautiful part of my library !!

I liked that this story focused on Aang, Toph, and the difficulties of a trying to find a balance between tradition and innovation. It seemed like a nice precursor to the hybrid society of Republic City/The Legend of Korra.

The art is great, as usual (Gurihiru, the same artist team that did "The Promise" and "The Search", also worked on "The Rift"), but in terms of plot, I felt like the story wrapped up a bit too quickly at the end.

So far, I've ranked the Avatar comics like this (from best to worst): The Search, The Promise, The Rift

This library edition is a nice hardcover, colour release, with some side notes from the creators and character design sketches at the end (basically, the same format as the previous "Avatar library editions")

I think that any Avatar fan will be pleased with this book

We are huge Avatar fans here and these books are essential reading, bridging the story from Aang to Katara. These library bound versions were much bigger than expected - large hardcovers - but so worth it. The paper is very high quality and the artwork is beautiful, and best of all, there's annotations in the margins from the artists and authors. A must-have for fans - get all three.

The Promise Part 3 is the final installment in The Promise series and it is also my favorite out of the three. The tension built up by the previous two was almost unbearable and it was evident throughout Part 3. It is also significantly thicker than the previous two, but I ended up reading it much faster - pretty much in one sitting! As usual, stories from the Avatar: The Last Airbender conclude satisfyingly, tying up most loose ends while establishing future plot-lines.

For anyone unfamiliar with the AtLA universe; the series, to me has always been surprisingly deep and symbolic - especially for an animated show. I felt taken aback at times during my initial viewing of the series as to the stirring moral undertones the writers tackle and the positive lessons you can draw from these characters' actions. Part 3 of The Promise series really brought out all of those aspects for me while staying exciting and fun! This was by far the most intense of the entire trilogy. It was filled with a sense of urgency and even a touch of destiny about what needs to be done to really restore peace to the world...WHILE staying true to oneself in the process.

Aang really kicked butt in this one, like he usually does when he gets down to business and makes stuff happen. You can tell the Avatar has been changed for the best by the trials he suffered in the past...but there is also still much confusion about his ties to the Avatar legacy. Zuko, who remains one of my favorite characters ever (and easily THE BEST transformation ever seen) was also really changed by everything he's lived through and the family he's had.

I'm a very big Avatar fan and getting a continuation of Aang's story in this form is awesome. I enjoyed reading all three of these immensely and would recommend them to any Avatar fan. The art is bang on with the TV show and it's just an excellent story.
