Brings out the complexity in Yu Dao, a post-war Fire nation colony, pretty well. The story build up, the conflict and the eventual resolution were pretty good.
Nice book, ties up the loose ends from the original series about the backstory of Zuko’s mother Ursa. The connection between Ko the face stealer and ‘the mother of face’ spirit was also interesting.
The premise of the story is a rift between Toph and Aang over protecting the heritage of Air Nomads. It is a bit less interesting than the other four.
Azula pretends to be a dark spirit, Kemurikage and tries to overthrow Zuko from being firelord. Among the four nations, fire nation history is pretty interesting. Wish they would delve deeper into Air Nomad history like that of Guru Laghima, the spiritual leader for Zaheer.
It is a bit like ‘The Rift’ except it is set in the southern water tribe. The story is okay.
