Maldene: Volume One

Maldene is a world of magic and science, wizards and dragons; but home also to an incredible secret.  One jealously guarded by History's most villainous being: Miro.  For centuries his presence has been plaguing the nightmares of gods and men; the world is in his thrall, there is no one willing to face him.

Or perhaps there is.  The young wizard Sabu, and his elven friend Eldar, lead their companions on a journey to seek a destiny foretold them by a blind gold-skinned gypsy.  Fighting a three-hundred foot dragon will be but the beginning of this quest, as they journey the globe in search of answers to the mystery of Miro's villainy, and uncover the world's long-buried secrets.  For they are destined to lead a new battle against this most ancient of evils, to gather all beneath the banner of a mysterious King and face the unfaceable.

There is just one problem:  Miro is counting on their success.
