This book is a masterpiece! I was blown away by an author who can make spiritual truths relevant to younger people by making them small pieces of an adventurous fantasy tale. OK, maybe you'll say C.S. Lewis already did this, or Phillip Pullman (tho I don't really remember his themes). Yes, they are also good. Maybe I was just ready for a new version, one that also included a hero that learns to think selflessly, a calamity where it is necessary to put the greater good ahead of one's own needs. A story that isn't subliminally christian or dependent on a know-it-all savior.
DiMartino introduces us to Sacred Geometry, the esoteric meanings behind different shapes. He doesn't harangue us with this, but gives just enough to whet our appetite and, perhaps, make us wonder about reality beyond what we see with our eyes. He merges Jewish descriptions of golems with Buddhist mention of tulpas. He draws a world ruled by a despot, where people live in fear and those that are creative have their inspiration stolen from them and become Lost Souls.
Part of my enthusiasm for the book may be because my home-schooled grandkids have a strong interest in art and (the youngest) in fighting, and their parents have a strong social justice take on life.
Before I run out of time to write, let me jot down the quotes that show the most important truths. Note: quotes from an ARC copy, may not be them same as published. I do intend to buy a final copy to keep.
"Our bodies and minds were opposites...Our souls unified them and made us human....What if our souls went back to the Wellspring?" (about p.266)
"We're all built from the same blueprint, he realized. W're all connected...A feeling of peace overcame Giacomo as he realized the whole universe was contained within every single thing, and all those things were woven into the fabric of the universe. I'm not separate from the others after all." (about p.310-11)

I love reading "the art of ____" books because they show you how much work goes into our favorite things. It was a true team effort that made Avatar: The Last Airbender such a masterpiece.

Honestly I loved it. I've been craving more Avatar content and this definitely delivered. Good character arcs, really interesting villain, fantastic plot, good/decent prose (for YA) and overall just a ton of fun.
