    Ven Khalida is a land of magic and gods. Settlements abound, both large and small, each with a life of their own and hidden secrets. Except Rottwealth. A backwater village, surrounded by mountains and ignored by most, nothing of merit ever leaves the valley. Aside, of course, from the mystical plant which shares its name. A plant that can heal even the most dire wounds in a matter of moments, and flourishes within the swamp that takes up part of the valley.

    Ean Sangrave's friends are gone. At least, his human ones are. Zin, as always, is by his side. Years of advice and getting Ean out of trouble has earned him the title of Ean's closest friend. Joining them now is Azalea the Yulari, another creature from the Abyss that feeds off the emotions of her victims to the point of death. Summoned in a moment of jealousy, Azalea would have killed Ean's friends if he had not stopped her in time.

    Uni-dimensional characters... but such potential

    Such potential, but horrible character development. narrative sounds like he has a head cold. i have a wide tolerance, but even i couldn't handle it.
