WOW. Really good story line. Azula is so unpredictable, Zuko's past makes you want to cry. Ozai is/was such a wretched man! My only unsatisfied part is that Toph is not in this Trilogy. I think it would have been nice to see some Toph and Azula scenes.

Zuko’s search for his mother comes to a shocking conclusion with a revelation that leaves the reader with a certain sense of disquiet—not for the story structure but the ethical dilemmas it poses. Once again, the writers layer their story with complexity as we deal with the aftermath of a mother’s painful decision. Questions are raised and not all of them easily answered. What, exactly, do we owe to our children? Should we sacrifice our happiness for the sake of theirs? How do you deal with a deeply unhappy home life, especially when you see the effect it has on your offspring? Do you stay and tough it out or do you leave?

The writers know that such issues aren’t resolved with a neat stroke of the pen. Because of that, this graphic novel is worth continual re-reading, both for its masterful writing, familial plots and the fantastic illustrations that grace its pages and take off from the television series that inspired it.

A fitting conclusion to this mini-saga, though I was disappointed that Azula didn't feature more prominently (is it wrong that I was team Azula during the cartoon series? Yes? OK, it probably is...)

The search begins. The creators of the TV show Avatar; The Last Airbender finally answer the one question fans were left with. What happened to Zuko's mother. Continuing from where The Promise left off, Aang and friends continue their adventures, bridging the gap of events that happened between avatar Aang, and the new avatar Korra. Further steps are taken to make a connection in volumes two and three by having more spirit encounters, thus speaking to a shift in focus that occurs during Korra. However, the main topic is about family, which is shown namely through Zuko's desire to reconnect with not only his mother, but to repair his relationship with his sister Azula as well. The images are of the same quality as the TV series, and the story features the same mixture of humour and quality themes that fans expect. The answer to this long-awaited answer will not disappoint.
