This is a combination graphic novel with a novelette (written text) to expand the story. Although I did like it, it was not as good as her other graphic novel "Bloodraven." The story opens with the aftermath of a battle. Ferris is captured and the enemy take sadistic pleasure trying to break him. My main issue with the story was the graphic torture (both visually and written). The protagonist Ferris is subjected to brutal rape/torture and has to witness others being tortured (one resulting in a particularly gruesome death). When he is rescued by Escalon, their brief affair is steamy but leaves a reader hanging because it is over so quickly. The main focus of "Wizard" remains the torture. Hopefully, the author will have a sequel. There are some typos in the novelette, and the text in bubbles sometimes went to far into the crease, but overall this is a very nice edition for being self-published. Recommended, but NOT for the squeamish or sensitive.
"Enjoyable read in an intriguing format" At first I was a little bit surprised when I held this book in my hands as it is a mixture of comic and 'novelette', so it's part comic and part text. But after reading the first pages I was intrigued by this concept and found it working out pretty well for me. Warrior Ferris of Nalvar is captured and tortured by warriors of an enemy nation which his army has lost a battle against. He is saved from a sure and painful death by the wizard Estalan. In return Ferris swears under an oath of honor and life, that he will accomplish three things for the wizard. At first Ferris naturally distrusts the foreign wizard Estalan, but soon falls for him and they begin a steamy affair. But then he becomes aware of the true agenda of the wizard... This book has beautiful drawings and an interesting story. What bothered me a little bit was the very graphic torture scene at the beginning. Believe me when I tell you that I had trouble continue... More > reading. But as this book is intended for adults anyway, I nonetheless recommend it as an enjoyable read, just not for the faint of heart.< Less
"Wizard by P.L. Nunn" I like P.L. Nunn. I think she is a great cover artist, and I was allured by the cover of this manga. When it arrived, today, I was also surprise to discover that it's a mix of text and graphic. First of all, it's not for faint hearts. It's very gruesome, starting with the rape and torture of Ferris, a warrior of a defeated army. And during his torture, Ferris has also to witness to the tortures of his fellow comrades, and one in particular is very bloody, even more when it's not only describes by text but also with images. Ferris is rescued by a wizard and thief of sacred relics, who scares the priests who are torturing him. To save him, the wizard, Estalan, expects from Ferris, three oaths, to claim when he wants. Estalan is a very handsome and quite feminine man, and for Ferris is unavoidable to fall for the man. During their journey toward the capital, they share some intimate moments, but then Estalan asks to Ferris to do something he feels... More > unright... As always the graphic is beautiful, especially when it's for Estalan character. I was pretty moved by the torture scenes... I really had some problems to continue the reading. They are pretty cruel, and so I for sure will not reccomend this manga to impressionable readers. But I think the cruelty is not free, and sincerely I think that the medieval tortures where like that if not worse. The universe is the same of Bloodraven, the previous manga I read by P.L. Nunn, but there are no connections between the two. So if you have liked Bloodraven and have no problem with the torture matter, I highly reccomend this one.< Less
