When a desperate call for help interrupts the holiday celebrations at the Bureau of Balance, Taako, Magnus and Merlea are sent out after their fourth target for deadly relic Reclaiming: a powerful transmutation stone, hidden somewhere in the depths of a floating arcane laboratory that’s home to the Doctors Maureen and Lucas Miller. An unknown menace has control of the stone and is using it to turn the lab into a virulent pink crystal that spreads to everything it touches. It’s only a matter of time before this sparkling disaster crash-lands, but in order to find the stone and save the whole planet from being King Midased, our heroes will have to fight their way through a gauntlet of rowdy robots and crystal golems, figure out if they can trust the evasive Lucas Miller, and solve the mystery of what — or who — has put them in peril, all before there’s no world left to save.
Based on the blockbuster podcast where the McElroy brothers and their dad play a tabletop RPG and illustrated by cartooning powerhouse Carey Pietsch, The Adventure Zone: Crystal Kingdom takes this #1 New York Times Bestselling series to glittering new heights.
Meet the McElroys! Clint was born first, which recent studies have shown is the best procedure for fathers and sons; then came Justin, Travis, and, last but not least, Griffin. This hilarious family gained fame in the world of podcasts with My Brother, My Brother and Me (which spawned a popular tv show), Sawbones, Shmanners, Rose Buddies, and a farcical romp called The Adventure Zone.
Carey Pietsch is a cartoonist based out of Brooklyn, New York. Her work includes drawing for Lumberjanes and the Mages of Mystralia webcomic. Carey also makes Keepsakes and other original comics about magic and empathy. Along with brightening her workdays, The Adventure Zone got her to join a D&D campaign. careydraws.tumblr.com
