Mark's out of the military, these days, with his boring, safe civilian job doing explosives consulting. But you never really get away from war. So it feels inevitable when his old army buddy Jason comes calling, with a lucrative military contract for a mining job in an obscure South-East Asian country called Quanlom. They'll have to operate under the radar--Quanlom is being torn apart by civil war, and the US military isn't strictly supposed to be there. With no career prospects and a baby on the way, Mark finds himself making the worst mistake of his life and signing on with Jason. What awaits him in Quanlom is going to change everything. What awaits him in Quanlom is weirdness of the highest order: a civil war led by ten-year-old twins wielding something that looks a lot like magic, leading an army of warriors who look a lot like gods. What awaits him in Quanlom is an actual goddamn dragon.

Dramatic, and often grotesque, full color artwork illustrates this dark fantasy story about a modern day east Asian country which was ravaged by war.

For teenage fans of violent fantasies.

I agree. The only disappointing part about this book is the story was too short. I want to know more about the kids. :(

My only disappointment was that the book was not longer! I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel.
