Guest Post: Rune: A Tale of Wizards and Kings by CC Rogers
Author and Illustrator: CC Rogers
Genere: Graphic Novel, Comic Book
Audience: Young Adult
500 years after their banishment, the legendary evil known as the Jinn have returned to the kingdom of Valheigh. A vengeful wizard unleashes the most horrific curse of Jinn legend such that Prince Rune must either kill woman he loves or die at her hands.
Prince Rune does not want to be king. Unlike those who would murder him for the throne, he values the well-being of his subjects above his own and knows that ruling is a difficult task. What he really wants is love and a family, especially since he has lost both of his own parents.
After a nine year absence, he returns to his homeland on the eve of his 21st birthday and must make choices that affect his kingdom's fate as well as his own.
