Bigby Wolf embarks on a quest through the American Heartland to find a new location for Fabletown, a secret society of exiled fairy tale characters living among the "mundys." In his wanderings, Bigby stumbles across Story City, a small town that seems to be occupied solely by werewolves. Oddly enough, they seem to already know and revere Bigby, but at the same time they've captured and caged him.
Been meaning to pick up this volume for awhile now and thankfully I did this week. I loved the side story of Bigby and his former comrade in arms. Bigby has been one of my favorite characters from the main Fables series since the beginning. It was nice to once again learn more about his past while tying everything back to the main storyline. The fabled Story City is a fantastic setting for this story of the perfect little town gone bad. A treat for fans of the Fables series.
