Castle in the Stars Hardback edition by Alex Alice
Alex Alice is a French graphic novelist, working in France and sometimes the U.S. His works have been translated into more than fifteen languages.
Born in 1974, he grew up in the south of France and had the chance to travel around Europe, where he developed a lifelong passion for the ruins and castles of the medieval and romantic ages. This experience influenced his art, from the grim setting of his esoteric thriller The Third Testament (co-written with Xavier Dorison and published by Titan Comics) to the primeval, mythic world found in Siegfried, an operatic re-telling of the northern saga of the great dragon slayer (published by Boom Entertainment). In Castle in the Stars, he draws on Jules Verne and nineteenth-century romanticism to create a watercolor world of adventure and wonder to enchant adults and younger readers alike.
Conrad of Marburg and his companion Elisabeth continue on their quest for the Third Testament. But to find the relic they must first escape the dark island where they are held captive and then reach the monastery of St Luke, which seems to hold the answer to many of their questions.

Nicht nur die Tempelritter scheinen ihre Pläne zu durchkreuzen, auch der finstere...
