Curse of the Chosen Series : Titles in Order

Book 2
The dramatic and hotly anticipated conclusion to Alexis Deacon’s original Geis series, featuring new branding and a format designed to sit alongside Curse of the Chosen Volume 1.

As the great chief matriarch lay dying, she gave one final decree: Upon her death there would be a contest. Having no heir of her own blood she called on the Gods. Let fate decide the one truly worthy to rule in her place. The rich, the strong, the wise, the powerful; many put forward their names in hope of being chosen. But when the night came… only fifty souls alone were chosen.

As Io’s quest reaches its deadly and dramatic conclusion, things are not all as they seem in the sorceress’ game for the right to rule. Still trapped inside the torturous nightmares within the castle, who will remain in the battle for the throne, and which of the chosen will be lost along the way? 

Alexis Deacon draws his Geis series to an epic and emotional conclusion in this newly branded volume, packed to the rafters with his beautiful artwork and gripping storytelling.
Book 1
After an evil sorceress casts a spell, a community is sent into a tailspin, fighting for survival. Book one of the mind-bending graphic novel series, featuring gripping action, supernatural mystery, and magical fantasy worlds where fifty souls battle in a contest to become the ruler of an island. A stunning fantasy epic unlike any other!
