Set in the medieval kingdom of Ralamid, a fantasy world all of its own embroiled in mystery and intrigue where anything can and will happen if needed. A young girl known as a Ferat, one who can prophesise fortune or dangerous fate witnesses with her own eyes a disaster waiting to happen as a fierce dragon, Noigin, the dragon of the dark is set to descend on their world without conscience and fear to conquer it ultimately. This dragon is supposed to be a creature of three-fold darkness and when it appears in that shape, it will command everything it wants. This particular Ferat has seen eighty years into the future and is believed to be one of the best seers the world has ever known, and whatever she sees never fails to come true. Lazarus, an envoy of the clan of the heavy eye discusses Aitenbara and the prophecy, also that their seer is the youngest ever known to their country, which gives them cause for concern. Once Lazarus sees the Ferat, he sees how young she really is and how little, but also how she is not human and scarred across one side of her face. When he finds she is of mixed blood, human and Gaderin his interest piques. Readers will love the setting of this manga, first in a series of volumes that touches upon the idea of those who can predict the future without failure, and also of their lives in this cleverly weaved tale of fantasy and flair in an original world penned by Gyojeong Kwon, who will show the reader how interesting that world is with the characters of Det and Osen getting to know each other more so as the story progresses to make this one for a Christmas present with a difference. IN SUMMARY: Fantastic story, elegant art, flowing robes and enchanting settings. Gyojeong Kwon is a manga-ka tipped for future greatness. The faces of the characters seem sculpted to perfection, while the Celtic style theme running through the manga is beautiful to the eye.

***********************************************************

The Adventures of Young Det is billed as the story of "two adventure-loving boys who set out on an epic quest to slay a fearsome dragon that threatens their world." Presumably, at some point it will be just that, but this first volume serves as a prologue, focusing on the relationship between a powerful human sorcerer named Lazarus and the lovely Ferat, chief of a race of prophets. Lazarus, as we first meet him, is extremely talented and he knows it. Initially unimpressed with the Ferat, his admiration for her grows when he realizes her magical abilities exceed his own. Eventually the two strike up an agreement to teach the other their styles of magic. Unbeknownst to Lazarus, the Ferat is also keeping an eye on him because of a prophetic vision that indicates he will have something to do with the summoning of the dragon some eighty years hence. Many in-depth conversations about the universe's magic system follow and it's to Kwon's credit that these scenes manage to be more about the characters than magical mechanics. Lazarus palpably changes as a result of these lessons, and his growing feelings for the Ferat evolve quite naturally. Occasionally these discussions can get a bit wordy, and there are a lot of terms to get straight as well, but on the whole they're perfectly comprehensible and don't drag down the narrative. Quite a few intriguing questions are left at the end of this volume, and I get the overall sense that Kwon has plotted this tale very carefully. Will Lazarus actually be responsible for summoning the dragon? Will the Ferat and her home really disappear as some visions have indicated? Will the story continue to be as enjoyable when it actually gets to the epic questing? With beautiful art and a well-crafted story, The Adventures of Young Det gets off to a very good start in this volume. I look forward to reading more. Volume one of The Adventures of Young Det is available now.

    I love the in depth development of the fantasy world in this story. The explanation of magic at play sets the stage for discussion of the exact nature of the magic necessary for the prophecy in the upcoming chapters. It's also interesting to watch the development between the two main characters, and the balance between their contrasting natures. While the first book is concentrated on world development, I'm excited to see where the story will go from here in terms of the action, political intrigue, romance, and tragedy the first books sets in motion. And I'm very curious as to who exactly Det is.

    I wasn't expecting this to turn into an action series, but wow, battles! We finally got to see some flying monsters, too! Anyone else think that the sorcerer guy is a bit fishy? Like he might be hiding something?

    I am VERY excited about the recent turn of events...I am so glad that the Ferat is back in the story (though I do enjoy reading the new storyline, the prologue was defintely my favorite part!!)

    I find the latest chapters interesting. I suppose it takes a little while to adjust to the new characters, but I like them, as well as the current plot. If anything, the pace has picked up now that there are monsters to fight, adventures to be had, etc. Even if you disagree, however, please don't give up on the story yet. I think you'll be missing out.

    Today I have read all chapters till vol. 3 ch. 2. I like the art and I really liked the story until vol. 2 ch. 4, however after it started with Young Det the story became boring. I hope it will become more interesting soon, else I will give this one up.
