The choice is simple. Either find your soul mate or remain immortal and alone.
In The Heart Hunter from Legendary Comics, the young adult graphic novel uses colorful illustrations and idioms in telling a fantasy story of love, heartbreak, and renewal.
Here’s the official synopsis of the graphic novel:
The Heart Hunter is set on the cursed island of Envecor, where everyone is doomed to wear their heart outside their body and is immortal—unable to die, to change, to have children—until they find their soul mate. Paired soul mates are then turned mortal, freed from the curse, and able to leave. But all fairy tales have a dark side: those who don’t want to lose their immortality pay “Heart Hunters” to find their soul mates and kill them so they may remain immortal. Psyche, a Heart Hunter, is hired by the king to kill his soul mate. As she sets out on her quest, she begins her own journey of mending her broken heart and learning to trust again.
