Book Summary: Maria finds herself in a stunning, masquerade ball of her dreams, reunited with her husband at long last. But like all things in the Labyrinth...everything is not what it seems.
Book Review: Wow!
The story between Maria and Sarah in this issue is eerily parallel. Both girls experience a dream-like dance event and both end up breaking the dream-like state. Both girls are out to rescue a baby from the Goblin King. The only difference is that in Maria's dream-state it is her husband that tells her that the owl King is out to make their son his heir and she needs to get to him quickly.
When Maria comes back to the Labyrinth, she finds that her friends had been captured and that they are ready to ready to storm the castle to save Maria's son.
Again this continues to be a bit of a parallel between Sarah and Maria. Both women will be doing the same thing but in their own way. We already know how Sarah's journey ends but we still have yet to see how Maria's plays out and how hers will end. I mean we have an idea but not the entire story.
Part of me really wants to see Maria succeed but the other part of me knows she won't. I really would love to see her continue to raise her son but it is apparent from jareth's storytelling that isn't how it ends. So we will be left wondering until the very end of it all.
This series is wonderful and I love how we are still getting Jareth's origin storyline. Maria is one fierce Momma and she has the determination to continue her quest to gain back her son.
I cannot wait for the next issues and I am looking forward to seeing how this story concludes at the end. If you are looking for something fantasy to read, then definitely pick up this series. You will not regret it.
