The Seven Deadly Sins—a legendary order that once servedthe Kingdom of Liones as the mightiest of its Holy Knights—stand accused of treason and have fled the realm. Princess Margaret and young Gilthunder, the slain commander Zaratras’ son, know the terrible truth about the betrayal but dare not speak of it, not even to each other.

The aftermath of the event that shook Britannia comes to life in seven prose chapters that provide a superb introduction to the rich world of the original comic and satisfy longtime fans’ craving for more. Illustrated in a classic, warm style by the creator himself, Seven Scars They Left Behind walks the royal road of fantasy.

Author Shuka Matsuda briefly worked in design at an ad firm before turning to what she was meant to do. A writing role for the videogame franchise Far East of Eden marked her debut as a storyteller. These days she is known for her children’s books and YA novels.

“A blend of action and character drama thoroughly accessible to fans of all ages.... Illustrated with a handful of black-and-white drawings by series creator Nakaba Suzuki, [The Seven Deadly Sins] Seven Scars They Left Behind is an excellent introduction or supplement to the manga/anime series. Highly recommended.” –Wisconsin Bookwatch
