Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A prequel to the popular comic series fables, which tells of characters from famous fairy stories seeking refuge in our world when theirs are overrun by an evil empire. They set up a community in new york called fabletown, and the admin of the place is run by snow white.

The series is set in the present day, but fabletown was formed centuries before. This is a story from their early days, when snow went to visit some arabian lands to ask for military aid. Condemned to death by the sultan, she survives by telling him a new story every night. Yes, just like you know who.

The stories she tells are backstory for the regular characters in the fables series. A lot of interesting information is revealed on the way, particularly in the unbearably sad life story of flycatcher.

A mixture of text and picture stories, the latter done with some beautiful art, this is like a proper book of fairy tales. It's a work to treasure.

Format: Paperback
Snow White is sent to Arabia as Fabletown's ambassador, tasked with forging an alliance between the two peoples against the conquering Adversary. Instead, the misogynist sultan takes her prisoner and intends to give her the same fate as he's given nearly every other young woman in his land: marry her in the evening, and kill her the following morning. Snow White attempts to escape that fate by doing exactly what you would expect (if you know your fairytales): entertain him with a new story about the Fables every night.

As a stand-alone book about the Fables world, this can be read even by someone with no previous knowledge of the series; however, I would recommended reading at least some of the main stories first, to start feeling interested and invested in all the characters before you read their life stories. As it stands, I was delighted to read about some of my favourite characters: Snow White, Reynard the Fox, Bigby Wolf, and Prince Ambrose, among others. Most of the stories revolve around the theme of revenge, and they're all pretty dark - darker than most of the issues on the main story, at least those I've read so far. Still, they are really interesting and well written, and the artwork is diverse and fitting to each story, so this is a wonderful addition to your library if you like Fables.

Highly recommended.

Being a spin-off from the main fables series, this is a book that could easily be overlooked, especially considering the time and expense required just to digest the entirety of the main series. If you did overlook it, you wouldn't miss anything essential, but it does shed a bit of extra light on the long backstory of several of the main series most prominent characters and a few of it's lesser lights too.
