This is a brief volume with a main story concerning the choosing of the new North Wind, a Christmas one-shot about Rose Red and a series of mini stories. At first sight these mini stories seem to be the weak link but peer closer and you see they do subtly weave into the main plot.
The art is good as always but seems to have a bit more polish. Brighter colours and more detail on the faces seems to be the order of the day. The Mini stories also get to showcase new artists and styles.
Not the greatest book in the series but still an integral part and a Thumbs Up!
