This story leaves off perfectly from the end-of-the-series cliffhanger to the next big question on every fan's mind: what happened to Zuko's mother?
With the writers and animators of the show coming together for this next epic arc, you will not be disappointed in the story and development of the characters. Again fans will be faced with intrigue, development, and the adventure that made the original series so memorable. A character you thought was finished and gone also reappears to become an unlikely ally...
The Softcover version is large, which I tend to dislike with softcover versions due to the weight of the book pressing down on the corners and warping the book itself over time, but this is a very minimal problem.
As we know what this story is about, I'll skip the synopsis. So far the story focuses mostly on Zuko, Azula and informative flashbacks of Ursa's past, one of which will play a very large part in what's to come in Parts Two and Three. Aang, Sokka and Katara are more supporting characters here, which fits, given that this is about Zuko's family and history. Toph is absent so far, although mentioned by the Gang (and we're given a few subtle nods to how things will come about in Korra's time regarding Republic City and Toph's role therein), but Iroh makes an appearance with his usual wisdom and eccentricities.
And unlike 'The Promise', where a few new characters were a bit shallow and jarring compared to our TV series crew, there's really only one or two additions to the Avatar line-up here, and we are given just enough on them to make us curious to how this Search will all pan out. We may be building up more questions with each answer at this point, but that's what makes the beginnings of a good mystery.
One reviewer below remarked that one new character and surprise in particular changes certain dynamics a little too drastically, especially those concerning former Firelord Ozai, and that they make him seem flat and one-dimensional. Not so. They explain a LOT about his character and the very cold choices he made later in life regarding his son and wife.Read more ›
