Golems: living dolls crafted by adept molders of earth and magic. Farmers use them to perform menial labor, law enforcement use them to bolster security, and aristocrats use them as their closest companions. Just like any tool, however, golems can be used for good or evil.
Enter Clay, an aspiring young molder who travels to the city to take part in a golem-building contest-the winner of which will become the guardian of the city’s treasury! When dark forces learn of Clay’s unique skills, he becomes a target worth more than the city’s coffers.
Luckily, Clay has three golem friends who will do anything in their power to protect him. Join fledgling golem-maker Clay and his eccentric companions as he embarks on a journey of grand adventure!
Clay and his friends had me laughing once I opened the page. As a reader, they easily came off the page and because real characters before my eyes. It was so easy to fall into this story. Before I knew what happened, it was the end of the first volume!
The story flows effortlessly. Needless to say it’s a great one, and the artwork is eye catching as well. Another thing that I liked about Clay Lord, was that the story is seriously action packed!
I love all the characters in this book. Seriously. Actually, I enjoyed every bit of this story, so I’m very excited to read the next 2 volumes.
If anything, I’m a little bummed that there’s only 3 volumes. However, that just leaves me wondering how the story will play out.
I give Clay Lord: Master of the Golems (first volume), 5 stars. — I loved it so much!
Have you read Clay Lord? If you have, what did you think of it?
I don’t think many people have heard of it, unfortunately. Which is sad, since this volume was genuinely hilarious and filled to the brim with emotion.
