Synopsis

“In a distant time, a small country — the “Land of Bones” — discovers a strange technology, and plunges the world into fear and despair.” Since the dawn of time, the Kingdom of Karan — loved by its inhabitants and neighbors alike — has existed in peace and in harmony with nature. But now, the kingdom has fallen and its citizens have scattered. Karan’s sole hope? A small boy — Prince Tsunashi. Despite his reluctance to accept the challenges of reviving Karan, Tsunashi’s right eye patch hides the mark of the prophesied savior: THE EYE OF GOLD. Threatened by the intensifying advance of the fearsome and mysterious Land of Bones, a skillful ploy by a vassal allows Tsunashi to discover and harness his legendary ability hidden underneath the eye patch — and fight to save his kingdom. From bestselling author Masahito Soda, creator of “Firefighter! Daigo of Fire Company” (8.3 million copies sold) — and the kart racing manga Capeta (6 million) — comes THE TENTH PRISM. Soda’s new epic fantasy marks his entry into the genre and is certain to be yet another masterstroke for this author.
