This collection is Volume 1 of a series taking place in a fantasy world in which the Mozaks are rebelling against the Mud King who makes people offers of the greatest desires to enslave them. It is well-written although a little wordy in places but the beautiful illustrations make up for that. They are reminiscent of the work of Philippe Druillet, a real compliment. (If you don't know Druillet's work, look it up or buy it!)
Highly recommended and I look forward to the next volume.
