No matter how far I travel down this road, will hatred only give birth to more hatred?


The hunters become the hunted when the Elric brothers and Prince Lin set a trap for the homunculus with the insatiable appetite - Gluttony! On another front, state politics are shaken up when a horrifying truth about Fuhrer President King Bradley is revealed - and Colonel Roy Mustang is right there to capitalize on the situation.
(Synopsis taken from Goodreads)


There are tons of revelations in this book.

First off, Winry finds out the truth behind who killed her parents and has the change to take her revenge, but Ed convinces her not too. She then decides to go back to Rush Valley to continue working as an auto-mail apprentice. 

Secondly, we finally see the characters learn the truth about the head of their military, King Bradley. We, as the readers, discovered this a few books back. Roy likes this news, and decides to try and use it to his advantage.

And lastly, Lin and Ed catch their homunculus. The questioning doesn't really go as planned, but much is still learned about theses beings and how the philosopher's stone is related. 

Overall, a great addition to the series and would recommend you start reading it, too!


"What right did you have to take her life!?"

"Your hands weren't meant to take people's lives. They were mean to save them."

"You can't measure the worth of a person's life with addition and subtraction!!"
