Take note Crusaders, for Tama will present you with another reading from the Book of the Geomancers:
Gilad Anni-Padda does not hold the title of The Eternal Warrior for nothing. The second installment of Valiant’s Book of Death series will prove that to you emphatically, for Gilad Anni-Padda is a soldier of Earth, armed with the accumulated knowledge and experience of centuries past who is vehemently dedicated in his role of guardian; protector of the legendary line of Geomancers – Earth’s chosen mystic mouthpieces. His struggle is to endure the arduous journey of the present time, fervently protecting Tama, a Geomancer sent to him from the future who conveys revelations affecting all who dwell in the Valiant Universe. Sadly for Tama, she has drawn the unfavorable attention of Gilad’s closest allies – Unity.
Unity suspects Tama is the source of the unexplained calamities that have transpired of late and they have intentions of bringing the young elemental into government custody. However, Gilad is fully aware that Tama is being hunted by a Dark Geomancer and he is determined to protect her at all costs. The inevitable then occurs, a historic confrontation between Gilad and his Unity teammates; a showdown that does not disappoint by any means.
With this Book of Death issue, I firmly believe that the character of The Eternal Warrior has been propelled to a new height. The creative team’s efforts were successful at keeping the reader fully engaged by showcasing the trials and tribulations that Gilad must endure in his ever important role as a defender of the Geomancers. This issue contains high-octane entertainment with a battle sequence between Gilad and Unity that will not easily be forgotten. The resiliency of The Eternal Warrior really stands out with this book, justifying Gilad’s recognition as The Eternal Warrior and commanding respect for it from his peers and readers alike. If there is ever an issue where you wish to learn more about The Eternal Warrior, this one is it. The creative team did a masterful job of presenting the chronicles of Valiant’s past, present and future, making it easy for you to jump right in and enjoy this epic event.
Until next time Crusaders!
