The newly dragonified Jack of Fables has finally found contentment in the form of a huge pile of gold upon which he can rest his enormous, scaly bulk. Contentment, however, never makes for an interesting story--which is why Jack isn't the star of this exciting collection. Instead, his son Jack Frost take center stage, traveling through a kaleidoscope of worlds in search of chivalric adventure and entry-level heroism. Along the way, his unique brand of open-hearted altruism will yield some cruelly valuable lessons regarding human nature--provided he can survive the endless waves of assassins that his efforts inevitably stir up.

While I love "fables" I was never all that impressed with the Jack spin offs. I do on the other hand appreciate Jack's son trying to the hero. Just very well done. This, as his first real story, does an excellent job of showing him as a young hero. Not stupid. Just young and unconsciously idealistic. And it's good to see that, to watch innocence being lost, without it growing into bitter and jaded cynicism. He grows. That's good. We don't see enough of that any more. Plus a heaping helping of humor, action, and wisecracks. Most enjoyable.
