Starting with one of the special focus stories: The Last Castle which tells of the last escapes from the homelands to the mundy world. After learning the fate of many noble fables, we return to current events where a shocking event is taking place. Little Red Riding Hood walks through a gate that was thought to be closed. No one has managed this in many years. Instant strife strikes the Fables community as some rejoice in Red Riding Hood making it through, while Bigby wonders just how she managed such a feat. Can Bigby prove his suspicions in time? All of this happens as Prince Charming is in the middle of his campaign to become the new mayor of Fabletown.
This is the fourth book in the Fables series. There are a lot of dramatic events in this one. We learn the fate of several major characters such as: Red Riding Hood, Robin Hood, Tam Lin, Boy Blue, and more. There are some suprising events with Snow, BigBy, and Red Rose that readers of the series will not want to miss.
March Of The Wooden Soldiers is a very good edition to the series. I loved the back stories about what happened before many of the Fables made it to the Mundy world. I also like the personal conflicts that arise leading to great character development. This volume clearly illustrates why I love this series. It ties the previous volumes together while developing new plot points that you are eager to find out how it turns out. It is a very satisfying continuation of the Fables series.
I highly recommend reading this book.
