In this wildly entertaining fantasy debut we meet Broxo, the only surviving member of a tribe of barbarians who once occupied a now-desolate mountain. All alone in the world, Broxo spends his time on the mountain hunting and avoiding the man-eating walking dead that periodically drag themselves out of a fetid lake.

Everything changes when Zora, a foreign princess, arrives on the mountain seeking Broxo's lost tribe. Can the two young warriors together defeat the living dead?

With accessible and beautiful art, killer fight scenes, and a story that mixes humor, romance, and classic high fantasy, Broxo is a tale you're sure to enoy.

Zora and Broxo have considerable chemistry, often-acerbic banter giving way to more intimate, heartfelt exchanges.

Broxo ends up teaching Zora how to apply skills to action as well as to be more alert to danger, while Zora reminds Broxo of a family and legacy he had before he was a lonely barbarian and helps him back towards accepting people again.

City Book Review

Broxo and Zora have a nice friendship going on, with none of the usual sexual tension that tends to slow these stories down.

Broxo and Zora run into one obstacle after another including ravaging zombies, a rabid cat beast and some sort of psychotic witch with weasels as her minions.

Review Fix

Unfortunately Giallongo cuts the best parts of the story off just when you’re settling in for a good read.
