I love surprise packages.
Usually I know if one’s coming because I order them (a lot). So, it was a lovely surprise to have a big package show up on the doorstep yesterday and to remember that I hadn’t in fact ordered anything. My husband was clearly up to something…
He was grinning ear to ear when I opened it and when I had, so was I!
“When Katara and Sokka return home to the Southern Water Tribe, they are shocked to find that it has gone from a small village to a bustling city! Malina, a Northerner, is behind the change and plans to unify the two groups, but Gilak, a Southerner, leads a fierce rebellion to stop her. In the face of these two opposing tribes, Katara will have to make peace with her nostalgia and distrust to save the home she loves from being permanently torn apart.”

It’s another Avatar: The Last Airbender library edition hardcover!
The pandemic has left us all a little short but hey, we’ve been stuck inside for four months. It’s time to splash out just a little.
North and South continues the story of the Avatar and his friends, focusing on Katara and Sokka who represent the Southern water tribe. If you’ve ever watched the series, you’ll know how amazing it is. If you haven’t, it’s on Netflix – go right now and watch it, you can read the rest of this later!
I’ve wanted to continue the series of Avatar books for ages, as you can probably tell from my reviews of all the books that came before it: The Promise, The Search, The Rift and Smoke and Shadow. This series is a wholesome escape from reality while still being action-packed and full of feels.
Apparently, author Gene Luen Yang announced that North and South was the last book in the series a few years ago. However, another one has hit the shelves since (which is already in my Amazon cart). So, the series looks set to continue and I for one, couldn’t be happier.
Watch out for the North and South review coming this Wednesday!
Thanks for reading!
