The books starts fast with a battle against a Devil Bear then settles into a slower paced investigation of a plot in Conrad's hometown where his family and his emotions complicate his efforts to stop evil from engulfing the town. Conrad is faced with his past and why he became an adventurer in the first place and we are given clues to the nature of the mystery that threatens the town with total destruction.
The art is solid with a steady cartoony style that allow the author to show emotion and fast paced action well. The pace of the book is good, there are times it seems to dragging in the middle but it is laying in the clues we need to understand the threat to the town. Unusually for a web comic the book is currently ahead of the online comic which means that if you are reading it online the book takes you past the current online story. Overall I find Lars Brown's story to be a really interesting take on a classic fantasy storyline, the mix of modern and fantastic takes a light touch and he hits it just right. I highly recommend the book.
