Something truly horrible has happened up at the Farm, and this time there's no Bigby Wolf on hand to investigate - no one to find answers to all of the deadly questions that keep mounting. Why is there an unmarked grave in the woods, and who's in it? Why is Reynard the Fox on the run from everyone from Shere Khan to the Bandarlog Host? Why is Snow White in deadly peril and by whom? Why's the Woodland Building's flying monkey drunk and what has that got to do with the sudden prophecies of doom from the Forsworn Knight? And finally, what's with all of the guns?

    This issue does a very nice job of introducing the characters who look to be acting as the primary antagonists, and while seeing cute little Goldilocks cast as a super militant aggressor is a surprising twist, the book does some strong work establishing the feelings that are driving her & the others to rise up. The book also introduces us to a rather charming character in Reynard the Fox, as he basically becomes the dashing rogue who moves through life with danger at his back, and a carefree approach to life that guides him past the various threats he comes up against. We also get a nice little turn of event when Rose Red decides to join the rebellion, thus leaving her sister alone to face the mounting danger. One also has to enjoy how the characters from the Jungle Book are inserted into the story, as the chase sequence in the woods does a wonderful job of drawing upon the tensions between Shere Khan & Beghera, which Reynard uses to aid in his escape.
