V2 Malika: Warrior Queen

(1)

Malika, queen and commander of the fifteenth-century West-African empire Azzaz, has been flung into the year 2025. After years of moving in the shadows, Malika is forced out of hiding by the Olon Jin --ancient sorcerers imprisoned for centuries because of their obsession with dark magic. In their sights is the Fire and Frost stone, a relic that holds the combined power of two legendary dragons. On her journey to Egypt to retrieve the stone, Malika uncovers a sinister plot that predates her own five-hundred-year-old legend as Warrior Queen and threatens to end humanity. This Dark Horse edition will collect the YouNeek Studios editions of Malika: Fallen Queen Parts 1 and 2.
