In this conclusion to the graphic novel trilogy, tensions between the Fire Nation and Earth Nation over their contested colony come to a head, and Avatar Aang, the teenage spiritual leader of all four nations, must resolve the conflict. Unfortunately, Zuko, the leader of the Fire Nation, is one of Aang's closest friends, and on the day he became Fire Lord, he made Aang promise that Aang would kill him if he ever put the Fire Nation's needs over the balance of the world. This continuation of the Nickelodeon cartoon series Avatar: The Last Airbender continues to grapple with the television show's complex issues, such as colonialism and cultural appropriation, in nuanced and complicated ways. Illustrator Gurihiru provides jewel-toned, kinetic drawings in the style of the television program with great attention to detail (for instance, the teenage protagonist is depicted as subtly growing older in between the first book and the third). Fans of the television program will clamor to know what happens next in the lives of their favorite characters, and the ending of this trilogy provides a segue into The Search, the next Avatar graphic novel trilogy, to be released in 2013.

I found Part 3 of The Promise to be a satisfying conclusion to this Avatar story line. Minimal mushy stuff. Much more action. Interesting contrast of culture preservation and a "new world".

Awesome finish to this part of the story. The ending was a major cliffhanger to The Search.
