BUY IT! BUY IT! If you want to know what happened to Zuko's Mom!


Well, if wanting to stay in order... The Promise is first. But, I could not wait! I read out of order and OMG.... LOVED IT SO MUCH! I literally read this book so much... I love everything about the connection, hearing the characters from the show speak and seeing the new developments. I was hooked and bought the rest of the series pretty much after this book.
Totally recommend for any time, night and when the fire nation... Started to rebuild and NOT attack. -snicker-

Now you're going to tell me... Where is my mother?

by -

I gotta say, I was completely caught off-guard at how well-written this story was. It immediately exceeded my expectations. The Search turned out being more than just an answer to the question "What happened to Zuko and Azula's mother?" but also conveys really clearly how much the main cast, especially Zuko, has grown/changed to an extent from the events that occurred in The Promise. It delves in pretty well with the distinction of 'who' a person is and 'what' a person represents. I don't want to say too much, but the plot elements that were incorporated into the story were really well put together and fitted the overall theme to enhance the overall experience. If you happen to be an Avatar fan AND a Ghibli fan, I think you may find this book pretty worthwhile (particularly due to the inspiration derived from their films).
The art and paneling is so smooth too, it's like your watching the TV show too!

Good way to continue the story

by -

The graphic novels are a good continuation of the story, but they are certainly different than the show. The art is very good and looks great in color and on the large page size. This volume features the best story of the existing graphic novels released so far. The story reveals important information that is not covered by the show.Ultimately, these GNs are a good way to continue the Avatar story, but they have a very different feel and style from the show.

You don't love the show if you haven't read this.

by -

Bought It last year and it was worth reading it with my mom and my siblings. We are all fans of the show and this is really fulfilling and this website has the best christmas deals.

No spoilers, buy and read! You’ll love it!

by -

If you loved the show and felt like it was too short, buy the graphic novels! These novels are such a great continuation. Make sure to start off with The Promise before reading this one. My book came in carefully wrapped so it had no damage whatsoever. I would suggest buying the hardcover books not because all the parts are in one, but for the creators annotations! I can’t wait to finish my collection. Such a great book, will not give any spoilers.
