Meesh the Bad Demon

Meesh the Bad Demon #2: The Secret of the Fang

The second book in the stunning graphic novel fantasy series about a girl discovering she is truly powerful when she loves herself, despite her inner demons.

When Meesh banded together with Fairy Princess Nouna to defend Mount Magma, she never expected she’d have to save the whole entire world someday!

As Meesh grows into her newly discovered destiny as the Guardian of the Underworld, she figured there would be a few minor rescues, maybe some crime-fighting here or there. But in the blink of an eye, her new friend Chai’s family is driven out of their home by an evil force that threatens to destroy all of Ponderosa if they dare to stay. Meesh suspects the same masked villain who poisoned Mount Magma is behind everything—but in order to stop them, she’ll have to find them first. The clock is ticking. Can Meesh defeat the darkness before it’s too late?
