Price: 3.99

The land of Zhal

In a wagon Adam, Peter, and their mother are trying to find comfort in one another. They are on their way to the Mosaks because Peter is dying and the Mosaks have a healer. Even though the Mosaks’ betrayal caused the downfall of their family, but Peter’s life depends on it. Like the cowards they are, the Mosaks ignore Zeb’s call and Adam’s brother dies.  

Now to the present where the remaining Mosak Knights have realized the horrors of what the Mud King has done. Now it is up to them to fight the good fight. One of them asks Adam to fight with them, to clear the Osidis name the good old fashion way. Adam, who was there to save his family’s name by possibly hearing the Mud King’s offer, declines. His anger towards the Mosaks is too great, and his family’s safety is in the front of his mind. The other Mosaks that are there begin to fight the Mud King’s minions. Refusing the King’s offer is a death sentence in these parts. But these Mosaks’ are strong and hold their own.
Jevalia is cowering in a corner with Adam, she helped the Mosaks enter his territory, and now she worries that it was a huge mistake to help them. As the Mosaks continue to fight, a massive beast is summoned by the Mud King. The monster stands at the bare minimum 50 feet tall! This being is apparently some kind of keeper of magic at the Library of Black Well. Mud King tells the giant that he does not wish to borrow from the beast’s library but to add to it. That is when the monstrous being takes notice of the Mosaks. As the monster begins to collect the Mosaks to add to the Library of Black Well, someone else steps up. Adam with the nail with his brother’s blood on it releases it into the room. The luminescent beauty that is created brings even the evil to their knees. Jevalia sees her chance and as the Mud King is distracted she strikes him in the head with a mallet. A friend was lost but the Mosaks now have the Mud King in their possession and can attempt to unlink the King’s mind from all he’s possessed. Adam has decided to join them on on the basis that the Mosaks protect his family and relinquish the curse of his family name when he is gone. Placing a decoy for the soldiers to follow Adam, Jevalia, and the Mosaks begin their dangerous three-month journey to the Isles of the Wizard Torgga with the imprisoned Mud King. 

The Confessional

There’s nothing like a good sci-fi novel to get you excited and going. There was definitely some Lord of the Ring vibes going on, which I absolutely loved. Adam takes the role of reluctant protagonist. At this point you almost admire his father more than Adam himself. So I’m excited to see the character develop and hopefully he’ll begin to care about the fight he’s now apart of. Being terminally ill bring a new desperation to each of Adam’s actions. You can tell he is very thoughtful about his next move. Every panel in this story arc so far is meaningful and is able to capture this story in a gripping way. The art is phenomenal. I’m more of a story person but when Adam releases his brother…just wow. I stared at those pages for a while, just taking in the beauty of Peter’s soul surrounding the ugliness of the Mud King’s layer. It was just a great contrast. I can not wait to see where this journey takes Adam and the Mosaks and I am 100% along for the ride.
