Good thing The Rift Part One came out.
Let me start by saying, no Zuko is not in this one. The cover doesn't include him and the first dialogue is pretty much saying that he is not going to make an appearance. Even though I'm a major Zuko fan, I understand considering The Search focused on him and his relationships. But, that doesn't mean it can't still be an excellent story!
A lot of this story seems to focus on the fact that Toph and Aang are foils to each other. Since Toph is generally more vocal, Aang is accompanied by three air acolytes so he can throw passive aggressive jabs at her and say he's teaching his students... this in unlike Toph who outright calls Aang's ideas foolish. Depending on how and where you were raised, you can feel either side is more right. However, both of them have solid reasons as to why they feel the way they do.
The conflict and tension between these two characters continues to rise throughout the story. I almost feel it's a conflict that was bound to happen. Even in flash backs with Toph and Aang during the Legend of Korra you can see that even though they are really close friends, their completely different demeanor causes some tension and fights.
Sokka is funny as always and the mild, loving sibling banter between him and Katara is always amusing and relateable to anyone with a sibling.
As we've come used to with the Avatar Comics, it ends in a twist. You do kinda see it coming with the stories set-up, but it ended at a perfect scene that makes you hungry for more!
The only complaint that I have is that I feel that Katara is a little out of character. She is usually extremely protective over Aang and tends to act as his more aggressive voice. We already know that her and Toph have had conflict in the best so I'm not sure why she just took such a backseat in this book. The reasonable answer, I assume, is she is two or three years older by this point and has matured, but she is still pretty young.
Anyway, definitely worth the buy if you've been reading the comics or just a fan of the series. If you are new to the comics, I highly suggest buying The Promise and The Search trilogies first.

and even took advantage of being Chi-blocked ! Is there nothing Azula can't do ?! Azula even got the better of Zuko
when he brought her some tea,on a tray as a peace offering,awesome ! I must admit to being sad when Katara
defeated Azula...,although I know that Katara has become an experienced fighter too,it's just that
I LOVE AZULA !!
The creators have come up with the ultimate in absolute power and mastery of the elements in Azula.
I read and re-read Azula's escape time and time again...,using Zuko's fire blast to shatter her chains...,
it just doesn't get any better than that.At the bottom of page 43,Azula has the most disgusted scowl Ever !
So...,this book explores just what happened to Ursa,Lord Suko's Mother.
Obviously we don't know what to think because we know so little about her and her past.
Is Ursa an innocent bride taken away from her childhood friend or is she a bit of a witch ?
There is a slight misunderstanding at the beginning of this book where Azula asks Ty Lee
and Suki why they betrayed her and how did 'she' convince them to change sides.
They both reply that they don't know what Azula is talking about.You see,the mystery might have
more than a little to do with Ursa,was she secretive and manipulative ?
Did she live a complicated life...,so far,we just don't know.
But I aim to find out by buying books 2 & 3 in The Search series.
All the Avatar books are great creations filled with brilliant characters and engaging plot lines.
You have to read each book several times to catch all the little extras going on in the background.
I've loved reading comic books and graphic novels all my life and rate Avatar up there with the best.
More of that classic dialogue and humor we all know and love, and some interesting plot points and twists to keep things going. A must for all fans of the show.
All the comics so far are excellent and this one has shown the most character development for Toph.
Buy "The Search" before this book because that chapter is finished and is best read before this one.
