After the icy north, Thorgal and his companions now face the oppressive heat of the Middle East. On the road to Bag Dadh, the reluctant hero has gotten dangerously close to the bewitching Saluma, who tells him the story of the Red Mages—the very same who kidnapped his son Aniel. It doesn't take long for Thorgal to realize that he isn't just mixed up in a simple crime, but in political machinations that could determine his fate, as well as that of the entire city.
Thorgal's coming-of-age is painfully similar to the rest of his life: the young man finds himself tied up to the stone of sacrifice by Gandalf the Mad, king of the Vikings of the North and father of his beloved Aaricia. There, the Child of the Stars can do nothing but wait for the coming tide—and death. Until, that is, a mysterious sorceress with flaming red hair comes to offer him a deal: his life, and revenge, against one year in her service. Discover the first two volumes of the adventures of Thorgal, published in 1980, translated into English at last. Now available in print from Cinebook
