History has a habit of repeating itself–both in the Mundy (our) world and in the world of the Fables. Only in the Fables world, histories wars are populated by wooden soldiers and angry toys, and even early in their time, sitting around a big wooden table after pulling a sword out of a stone. As Rose Red realizes that she’s the reincarnation of Arthur, and being called to bring Camelot back to the Farm. Cut off from her beloved sister, Snow White, and Snow’s children, due to the events depicted in Fables Vol 19: Snow White, Red does what she can with what she has–setting up a tournament with the Fables interested to find the champions that will sit around the table with her, and finding her equivalent to Guinevere. She works with the Woodsman to build a castle at the Farm, despite the Mayor of Fabletown protests. As Rose preps for war from others, will she expect war from those she loves, like Snow White? Only time will tell, and time is of the essence, as usual, in this world of fairy tale characters, and those from folklore, myth and so much more. I am saddened that there are only 2 more books in the series, so that is a bit bittersweet. However, Camelot is one of the strongest character-building stories that I have read in the Fables series. Rose Red has always been one of the characters I try and keep in mind–especially considering her crazy entrance into the series in Volume 1. She has come such a long way, even from the depression she had with losing someone she loved. I am happy that she’s becoming a fierce leader…those at the Farm have known this, but the people that pass in Fabletown haven’t had cause to know this. I also really enjoyed the story featuring the band of musicians that strike out into the world… It, too, was bittersweet because it mentions something that is the downfall of Fabletown. But, we get Puss in Boots, which was completely and utterly loved by me. There can never be enough of orange, furry cats, in my opinion. Then again, I am a bit biased. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was not as much of a chore to read this, as I have seen in a few of the past books, despite it being a little longer than those books. Also, I think that it shows so much progress in the Farm and Fabletown communities as a whole–where the groups should have been from the start. I look forward to what Willingham and his team have in store for the series end.

Well, got to say I had started the series and took a little...okay a longer break than I realized. Then after a while, I got around to catching up with this and other manga or graphic novel series I had started but stopped reading. If I were to add some of my favorite book covers, some of the Fables I'd probably add. The covers are just well drawn, well done and eye catching in a way. Basically, this volume was pretty good and sad that the series is ending. The series is worth a read.
