I enjoyed it thoroughly, but then I’m biased because I adore Fables. Aimed at young adults, but you can read it as an adult and still enjoy it a lot. Little bit dark, but not that dark. Some violence, but fairly tame. Heroes quest, an unlikely band of protagonists, talking animals, mysterious bad guys, suspense, ruminations on the meaning of friends and also on books and characters in books. It can be read as a fun kids with talking animals and a resourceful boy scout, or as a deeper exploration of literary themes.
