ABOUT THE BOOK
The idea for Simon Blood was in the back of Caracuzzo’s mind for several years, and has finally come to life after many doubts. Over time that idea grew to become an imaginary world where monsters, vampires, zombies and anthropomorphic figures come to life in a series of dynamic actions, including extraordinary landscapes, figments of his imagination and of all his readings. With its gloomy atmosphere, it is at turns dramatic and surprising. Inspired by the classic tales of adventure, where mythological figures and technology amaze you.
It’s a story for all-ages, adults and children, a story that will entertain and make you dream on.
This project is very important to me and Flavia. it’s the opportunity to realize our desire, an idea that unites us, we promise our best, help us make this dream come true.
Simon Blood takes place on Harsac, a planet divided into two hemispheres. In the north, there is light, trees, lush forests, high mountains, rivers, lakes and the sea. It is inhabited by many people, elves, dwarves, trolls, fairies, gnomes, including Simon Blood of the people of Kashar, a cheerful, ambitious young man, accompanied by a small dragon named Dalì.
On the other hand, the south hemisphere, is dominated by the King Xe and Queen Oly, cruel and merciless. The southern hemisphere is perpetually in darkness, a huge and dangerous place where vampires, zombies, werewolves, and terrible creatures are in s n eternal fight against the Northern hemisphere.
