WHY WE LOVE IT: In this sequel to the critically acclaimed first volume City
in the Desert: The Monster Problem, we get more of writer/illustrator Moro
Rogers' wit, heart, and daring. Also, Hari and Irro are our very favorite
sardonic heroes, and we get to watch them kick more monster butt.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Rogers' sense of visual storytelling and her blend of
mysticism and humor bring to life an adventure perfect for fans of Bone,
Avatar: The Last Airbender, reMIND, and Plume.
WHAT ITS' ABOUT: Irro and Hari leave the walls of Kevala to seek new lives
elsewhere. However, when they discover that the evils of the Sacred Peace
have spread far beyond Kevala's borders, our heroes decide to return and
save the city they love. Before they can do that, though, they must journey
across the wastelands to the prison of the Monster King, and release him in
exchange for his help.
