{English} Avatar - The Last Airbender: The Search, Part Three (The Search #3)

For fans of: the Nickelodeon series

Blurb: The Fate of the Fire Lord! Avatar Aang travels to the spirit world to parlay with an ancient power, bringing Fire Lord Zuko ever closer to discovering the truth about his mother's fate—and his own past. Yet Zuko's sister Azula is becoming increasingly dangerous, threatening to ruin everything that Zuko, Aang, Katara, and Sokka have struggled to achieve on their search!

My opinion: The end was only a mild surprise, nothing very exciting. It had it's twists and turns, but other than that it didn't have much new.
I wondered if it was really necessary that the whole Team Avatar went on the journey with Zuko. Sure, Aang was important, because he communicated with the spirit world and all that. But Katara? She was just there as his girlfriend. Fullstop.
Sokka wasn't much more than a comic relief. Would it have been that bad to split up the team for just one adventure? I mean, Toph wasn't there either!
Then the whole thing with Azula... She wasn't a very convincing crazy person. Drawing her eyes like that didn't help much. There could have been a lot more character developement, given all her talking about being a monster and so on. That storyline wasn't solved up in the end, unfortunately. And I still don't get why it was so important that Zuko took her with him.
Ursa was quite a boring charakter. She's all about being a loving mother and wife. That's it. No surprises.
Either the drawing style got better or I got accustomed to it. Zuko changed his hairstyle every other page though.
All in all it was a mediocre story that I expected more of, but it was comfy read.


My rating: 3/5 Buttons
