Kovu: PT. 1 by Kenneth Fultz Jr. is a young adult fantasy that is an anime style novel and comes with over 10 manga style illustrations. Kovu, a prince of 18, wants to make himself king by overthrowing his father, a cruel man who inflicted pain on the commoners of his country. With his brother back at court spying for him, Kovu decides to embark on a quest to become the people's king. He needs to gather the ten rings of the kings in order to save his people from the corruption of the rich and powerful. During this quest, he fights with Medusa at Hasmal, rescues Elewa from his power crazed royal family, travels to Rahab, and fights a Minotaur. He also experiences some chemistry with Busara, the lady who joined him on his quest and becomes his romantic interest.
This is a very interesting story and style of story that young readers especially will be drawn to and enjoy. The world is beautiful, and not only described with beautiful words and imagery but matched with equally entertaining and thought provoking art. The artwork really makes the story pop and will take it to a higher level in the minds of young readers. The characters are fun and easy to root for. Readers will love the idea of a son trying to overcome his evil father and bringing the kingdom back into the state that it once was and should always be.
