Description

Milo leads a lonely childhood marked by the absence of his mother, about
whom he knows next to nothing. His father has gone to work in the city, leaving
him in the care of his three elderly aunts, who give him his freedom to distract
himself by the lake where he lives. In this lake, Milo discovers a fish egg of
unusual size, and when it hatches, a magnificent golden fish is born. Milo is
only half surprised when strange creatures, including a toad man, become
interested in his secret discovery. He soon meets and frees a fiery young
girl named Valia, who was held prisoner by the toad man, and the two are forced
to flee, guided by the golden fish, to "the other side" of the lake
. . . the flip side underneath, one of many parallel worlds that are
connected through the lakes, rivers, and oceans. In this parallel universe, an
evil wizard wields power, driven by blind vengeance, with the toad man
does his bidding.

Milo finds himself the subject of
fascination, fear, and excitement by the elf-like population, who aren't
sure what to do with him, until he sets out on an adventure to protect them from
the evil wizard. Along the way, he finally encounters his mother, who turns
out to be a sorceress from this world, and the polar opposite power of the evil
wizard. He's the lost scion of a new generation and wizards, and he never
knew it (even though his three aunts and the golden fish did). Milo is the key
in this battle; if the wizard manages to capture him, there will be no more
opponents in the world on this side of the lake, meaning he could extend his
domination and carry it even further, leading the conquest of the multiple
parallel universes . . .

A beautifully illustrated,
family-friendly, magical adventure in the vein of Amulet and The Wizard of
Oz.

The first of three self-contained story volumes.

Review quote

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL (Good Comic for Kids Blog) --
Lion Forge releases an adventure set in a new magical world. Milo, having never
known his mother, and with his father working in the city, lives with his three
elderly aunts near a lake. He soon discovers many strange things in this lake; a
fish egg that hatches a magnificent golden fish, a toad man who is interested in
the fish, and a fiery young girl who was being held prisoner by toad man, who he
frees. Now on the run, Milo finds himself on "the other side" of the
lake, a parallel world where an evil wizard rules over an elf-like population.
He seeks to extend his rule to the other parallel worlds, and only Milo stands
in his way. The first of a three part series, this volume also stands on its
own, and will appeal to fans of titles like Amulet and the Wizard of
Oz.
