The Salad Breaker

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Cyrus Olancian's father runs weapons in the black market, and his mother hides a secret tool that almost cost her life. Torn between the two of them, Cyrus finds himself carrying an impossible burden: he must find a long-awaited savior or risk losing everyone he cares about. However, two unstable nations have already been seeking this legendary messiah for centuries, and many have given up hope. Surrounded by chaotic cultures, desperate religions, and international tension, Cyrus must hold on to his last shred of faith, or question the beliefs that have shaped his life. Like the old saying goes: When life grows weeds, build a salad. Containing over 100 original illustrations, THE SALAD BREAKER develops a curious, visual world populated with hopeful scholars, religious fanatics, commonplace assassins, and an idealistic laundryman who chases a living legend. This vivid, entertaining story takes you deep into the lives of one family whose struggles reflect the turmoil of their contradictory country -- an imaginary nation that reflects our own. Is a savior ever coming to free them? Or do some promises exist only to provide hope? This revised edition of THE SALAD BREAKER has been remastered and resized from the book's first printing, making it more accessible and readable than ever.
