Boy Blue has returned to the Homelands with some magical items he stole from Fabletown. He has the Witching Cloak that allows him to teleport and hide/hold items until he wants them again. He also took the Vorpal Sword(think Jabberwocky) that can vanquish any foes. With these handy items he becomes a great menace to the Adversary. He is on a mission to save Red Riding Hood, and cause trouble to the Adversary while he is at it.
This is the 6th boook in the Fables series. I liked discovering where Boy Blue has gone, and why he stole magical items from Fabletown. There is a lot of important information for the series in this volume, so it is essential to read it. We also learn beyond doubt who the Adversary is, and why he decided to take over the Homelands, which is amazing! There are some important developments with Mowgli, Pinnocchio, and Red Riding Hood as well.
Homelands was a great addition to the Fables series. There is plenty of action, and we get to learn some very exciting things about the series. The artwork was incredible! I enjoy the different styles that are used, and find some of it very beautiful.
I recommend reading this book, and the whole series.
