"The truth is cruel but justified."
Ed returns to Resembool and meets his father Hohenheim for the first time in many years. Although his father is happy to see him, Ed harbors intense feelings of resentment for being all but abandoned many years ago. However, anger gives way to intrigue as Ed and Al discover an important fact about the human transmutation ritual they attempted years before. What they thought was a partial resurrection of their mother was something else entirely - a revelation that could change their destiny forever.
Ed and Al are getting another lead on their search for the philosopher's stone, as well as whether or not they can use it to get their bodies back. Ed also uncovers the truth about the being that he and Al transmuted 4 years ago. This also leads to the revelation their teacher has, when this news is shared with her.
I think what I enjoyed most about this book was seeing the selflessness of both Ed and Al. They are truly remarkable people.
Overall, I would recommend this series to everyone!
Al: "This body of mine is a ticking time bomb."
Ed: "I won't run away... no matter what!"
