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, the once trusted knight of the House of Manas, murders his commander Leon, robs his corpse 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.

Note: This manhwa is based on the MMORPG.

Seams mangakas or manhwakas? just love annoying brats as their main char, I didn't dislike the series much on most aspects, it's nothing novel, it's actually VERY generic still it was not bad and chars ain't bad either but having that brat as main char is really it's main negative point, Ugrasil would have been a way better choice for main char, can't get to enjoy this and since there is no char development as other say he's just a brat all the short series till you get to that crappy ending which is not only a little contradicting to the story itself and its chars attitudes but also is there to remind you that this is nothing more than a spice to the game.

The ending sucks. And for that reason alone I could never recommend this. But if you like tragic endings then don't let me stop you.

The girl is killed, and it ends with the two guys who were suppose to protect her going to war against each other.

The art was nice and the story was enjoyable, but predictable. The ending had a nice video game-ish touch, which is no surprise since the manga was created to promote the game. If you are wondering whether or not you want to read it for the girl with the animal ears, then you should be good to go. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

except the art this manga is just bad. There is nothing good about it. The storyline is boring. Everything is boring. The ending tried to be mysterious but failed to do so. Many unresolved questions. Don't bother reading this. Its just got good art and thats it.

I picked up this manhwa not expecting much. After reading it through, I must say that it's better then belived to be. Well, the story has it's share of cliches, but that is something you must get used to when you are reading tolkien-based fantasy genre. Six volume appears to be too short so the plot doesn't get the chance to develop much. Even so I liked the ending which was pretty interesting in my book. The art is really good, fabulous I might add, and action scenes are great.

If you are action-loving fantasy fan this series is for you. Otherwise...well it doesn't hurt to try, now does it? :-)

Note: MMORPG on which this manhwa is based upon is utter crap. Stay away from it!

This manhwa had everything to make it a great manhwa from the beginning but lacked intelligence and emotion.
the characters were never really developed past the 1 volume and it had nothing but half explained question. the characters are like unreasonable little children carrying swords.
the is a lot of 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 didn't die.
