When a savage creature known only as the Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters have created their own peaceful and secret society within an exclusive luxury apartment building called Fabletown. But when Snow White''s party-girl sister, Rose Red, is apparently murdered, it is up to Fabletown''s sheriff, a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to determine if the killer is Bluebeard, Rose''s ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.
"Willingham's happy idea of bringing the Fables--that is, the characters of Europe's best-known fairy tales--to contemporary New York rolls merrily, dangerously along in two stories."
From the Publisher
LEGENDS IN EXILES presents the opening chapters in the FABLES saga, about a crew of fairy tale refugees. The Adversary forced them out of their homeland and they've taken up secret residence in New York City, setting up their own government (with Snow White as Director of Operations). This is the beginning of a series as mythological in its scope as its inspirational material--and you won't want to miss these genesis episodes.
