About The Legend of Korra – Book Two: Spirits:
From the creators of the beloved animated franchise Avatar: The Last Airbender comes The Legend of Korra. After ridding Republic City of Amon and his Equalist revolution, Korra is more confident and headstrong then ever – she is even able to enter the Avatar State at will.  But when political tensions arise between the Southern and Northern Water Tribes, Korra’s hot-headed approach sets off a Civil War of epic proportions.  Complicating factors is the sudden appearance of mysterious Dark Spirits who are attacking the Southern Water Tribe people and Korra learns that even her Avatar State cannot defeat them. With a battle for the fate of the world fast approaching and villains on every side, Korra delves deep into her past lives to connect with the very first Avatar.  Only then will she have the power and knowledge to restore balance between the physical and spirit worlds.
