"A young girl sits waiting at the top of the stairs,
glowing in the darkness.
Leading you quickly to the far side
of the banister, she hops up into a
painting of a small winding staircase,
shrinking beautifully as if she and
Alice were old friends.
You shrug your shoulders: there is
nothing to be done but to follow."
Dare to enter the dark, magical mansion of the Warlock on the Hill -- full of dangerous riddles, echoing voices, and terrifying creatures -- and you may never be the same again.
The Errand: The Warlock on the Hill is the second volume in The Errand graphic novel series. In each book of this series, Leo La Fleur and Adam Oehlers use poetic language and hauntingly beautiful illustrations to spin a darkly fantastical tale in which the reader follows a simple errand boy on a courage-testing adventure of great magic and ever deepening peril.
Leo LaFleur writes short stories, poems, novels, and songs. He studied English, Philosophy, and Great Books at St. Thomas University and has been published in literary magazines throughout North America, as well as nominated for multiple music related awards. He lives in Saint John, New Brunswick, where he finds a great deal of inspiration in nature and the surrounding forests.
Adam Oehlers is a UK-based illustrator and sculptor whose work has earned him a British Fantasy Awards nomination.
