“Desperate to find a sanctuary where his lover, Casca, will be safe from the demons drawn to her Brand of Sacrifice, Guts the Black Swordsman pushes his motley band of followers onward towards fairy Puck’s homeland, Elfhelm. With new allies who make their home in a mystically guarded woodland paradise, Guts’ goal seems within reach, but danger lurks in the shadows of even the most dazzling utopias, and even fairy witchery may not protect the wondrous kingdom from an army of marauding, murderous trolls!”
This is the 24th volume in the Berserk series and was an amazing volume in this series. Guts and crew continue their journey to Puck’s homeland, desperate to find a safe refuge for Casca. They end up stumbling upon some evil trolls and meet with witch apprentice Schierke. Schierke’s mentor provides them with some magical items and offers Schierke’s help on their journey.
After that Guts and crew end up defending a town against a horde of these evil trolls.
I loved the new characters introduced, especially Schierke. I really like where the story is going and love the whole adventure/journey theme to it.
Overall an amazing volume in the Berserk series. I love this new story arc so much and am curious to see where the story is going. Recommended to all fantasy horror fans out there.
