Plot/Story
The great warrior Leon Manas, son of the legendary Nathan Manas, now carries the powerful sword Brumhart. Though this blade is coveted by many, only the heirs to the House of Manas can wield it. But that doesnít stop the sinister from trying. Ernan, once trusted knight of the House of Manas, murders his commander, robs him of Brumhart and orders the death of Leonís only son, Zian. But the men sent to perform this infanticide come up against a mysterious figure in a dark cloak who defeats them only to disappear with the child into the thick of the Tass Forest. Sixteen years later, Ernan has become a feared tyrant, but still has not been able to unsheathe Brumhart. Thus begins the tale of this desperate king and the young boy who would become one.

The first volume is brilliant but it goes down hill after that. there are many sub-plot that start but never finish there are so many question that are never answered. there is nothing but needless, pointless deaths.

Characters
The characters are annoying as hell, they were never really developed past the 1st volume and they are like unreasonable little children carrying swords.

Drawing Style
The art is the only redeeming point about this manhwa. it's sharp, clear and to put is simply it's just great art better than some of the best selling manhwa out there and the artist does a great job of drawing the characters from different angle so one gets a feel of the surrounding area.

Enjoyment
Enjoyment? what enjoyment? like i said the art is the only redeeming point, there is consistency in the plot and you are left trying to make sense of something but not knowing what it is.

Overall
Overall, this manhwa was a major disappointment. IT'S LIKE LISTENING TO A VERY LONG BORING JOKE AND GETTING NO PUNCH LINE. i wouldn't recommend this manhwa unless you like mayhem and if you like mayhem you will probably like this but don't expect more than unreasoned mayhem. i doubt there was a single chapter where something or someone wasn't killed.
