Overview

A world without monsters is a dangerous place.

A monster hunter is suddenly out of a job when a religious sect supposedly rids the world of them, but is the sect’s noble deed too good to be true? In this sequel to the critically acclaimed first volume The Monster Problem, Hari and Irro must venture out across the desert to seek the aid of the King of Monsters. Monster hunter Irro is perhaps the only person in Kevala making a good living. The city pays him and his tailed assistant, Hari, a bounty for each monster carcass they bring in. But one day a religious sect called The Way of the Sacred Peace comes to Kevala to solve the monster problem by capping the city’s Spirit Fountain. Out of a job with all the monsters gone, Irro and Hari are determined to prove that there is a more sinister plot behind the Sacred Peace’s plan. In Volume Two, Irro and Hari leave the walls of Kevala to seek new lives elsewhere. However, when the Crown Serpent of Kevala tracks them down and informs them that the evils of the Sacred Peace have spread far beyond Kevala’s borders, our heroes decide to return and save the city they love. Before they can do that, though, they must journey across the wastelands to the prison of the Monster King, and release him in exchange for his help.

Meet the Author

Moro Rogers was born in Newark, DE in 1981. When she was very young her parents showed her a lot of scary movies like DUMBO, which informed her nightmares as well as many other aspects of her personality. Some of her earliest memories are of her father bringing home rat snakes and other creepy crawlers to show her and her siblings. For a while she thought about becoming a zoologist, but eventually she realized that she enjoyed making things up more than collecting data, so she decided to apply to the California Institute of the Arts’ Character Animation program. Here, she met a bunch of cool people, learned about filmmaking and overcame her fear of drawing from life. After graduating Calarts in 2007, she had various odd jobs in animation and freelance illustration. She lives in El Segundo, CA with her husband Jason and Gozer the Cat (with whom she shares a love of birdwatching.) CITY IN THE DESERT is her first graphic novel.
