for anyone who hasn't read this yet, my apologies if I am revealing anything too soon, this is not a review, just some things I wanted to point out.
As a long time reader of comic books and graphic novels, I am accustomed to story twists, alternate endings, character deviation - so in this book i'm actually expecting this. It's not enough to just ask where his mother is, or what "happened" to her, this brings up an opportunity to take a deeper look at Zuko, Azula, and the royal family, otherwise "the Search" would end up a pretty short story. In part one, we see a nice backstory...
Promise that you’ll end my life should I become like dad;
Promise you will take me down if I become so bad.
Cancer has run in families since before my incarnation;
An avatar must vow to curtail malignant transformation!
For the crimes of my ancestors, I would gladly atone:
The sins of my forefathers should burden me alone
But it all seems too much for a teenaged firelord to bear,
Though involving anyone else would truly seem unfair;
Just read "The Search" part one....a nice backstory about Ursa. won't say too much about the ending of this part for anyone who hasn't read it yet, the surprise ending in this story actually explains a lot about Zuko-especially his personality in particular. NOW I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL JULY TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!! Darn! (Grumble)
