Lopez (THE FAIRY FLY, THE STRANGE TAIL OF ODDZILLA, THE DARK MISTER SNARK).This unique adventure depicts one night when an ordinary person lacking confidence must battle a Wicked Wind. The stakes are high as she, along with friends and foes, travels through a magical Stormworld that culminates in a ghost town populated by more than just spirits. ILL WIND is a story that keeps delivering action and fun throughout, a fable as whimsical and unconventional in style as it is in plot. More than a single tale in a single genre, the book blends Humor, Fantasy, Adventure, Suspense, and Horror.From the time the characters are sucked into the Storm, the reader is transported with them on a strange chaotic trek. Meezly finds herself tangled in a web of chills and intrigue as she attempts to search for a mysterious gem called The Cursed Eye, which her missing father entrusted her to safeguard. The stone was used by a Sumerian king to transform an evil Jinn from a wind spirit to a vainglorious force.The female protagonist is introduced as a vulnerable individual struggling to overcome debilitating losses. Meezly stumbles through a gauntlet of thirteen macabre tribulations down a forest highway. Twists and madness abound during her eclectic hectic journey of the soul. It is a lighthearted yet touching trek that readers may wish to take again.This Illustrated Print Edition features odd and vivid artwork by the author.
