Sorcerous Stabber Orphen Tome 1: Heed My Call, Beast! Part 1
He calls himself Orphen: a rogue sorcerer who turned his back on the Tower of Fangs, the powerful academy that trained him. In those hallowed halls, a terrible curse fell upon his best friend Azalie, twisting her into a monstrous beast... and the teachers decided to simply cover it up. Forsaking his studies and even his own name, Orphen now wanders the land searching for Azalie, and a cure for what she has become. It won't be easy -- a quest brimming with adventure, spells, and swords awaits!
