Sisters Lili (12) and Madeline (7)have recently moved to a mysterious town in Eastern Germany called Magdeburg when their parents suspiciously disappear. With no one to take care of them they become wards of the state and are relocated to a downtrodden orphanage run by a stern priest named Father Gier.
Soon the girls will discover the true nature of the prison-like orphanage. The scary bedtime stories their father used to tell them of demons, werewolves and even aliens were more than just fantasy. The girls desperately try to escape the orphanage and start to discover cryptic clues and magical artifacts left by their father that will lead them to the truth about their parents and the truth about life.
A graduate of Florida State University's prestigious Liberal Arts program, D. Ian Naran is an American artist and writer who is currently living in Germany. Inspired by Magdeburg's history, gothic architecture and ancient cathedrals, this graphic novel is (in part) a tribute to the city he now calls home.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
Reminiscent of Harry Potter, this story contains some dark themes but it is safe for children and also entertaining for adults. This graphic novel is a work in progress. I will be adding new art work and plot lines as often as possible.
Affordable sponsorships are available. You can read more about sizes and costs on "intermission" pages within the book. Sponsorship will give you high visibility as the novel is published on multiple social websites and is available as an IPad and mobile app. Please contact me for more details (email@example.com).
This is an ever evolving story and my hope is that it is also interactive. I am open to plot suggestions. If your suggestion is apporopriate for the story I may create art based on your plot idea. Please send it to me. I hope you enjoy my work!
