In the far future, war has destroyed the entire Earth, leaving only a barren wasteland where the supply of water is controlled by the greedy king. In search of a long-lost lake, Sheriff Rao asked the king of the demons for help...and got the king's son, Beelzebub, and his assistant, Thief. Together the unlikely trio sets off across the desert, facing dragons, bandits and the deadliest foe of all... the King's army itself! It's travel adventure and tank action in this new story from Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball Z!

Akira Toriyama's Sand Land is an amazing book coming from the great author who wrote other hit series such as Dr. Slump and the one of the most popular books/shows in the world Dragon Ball. This book is fun, action packed, and is overall a fun adventure to read along with. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Sand Land and hope to see a spin off of this book if there ever will be one. My only problem with this book is that the beginning trails on kind of slow and you have to read through at least the first 2 chapters to get into the story and immersed in the world. Overall i loved it.

I was at the library when I first saw this book. I got it from the library and was amazed by the brillance of it so I picked it up at the book store. I wish their was going to be more in this series but it was a one book series. I would highly recommend this book. It will make a lasting impression on your manga collection.

If you thought Akira Toriyama's imagination was limited to Super-sayans, Nameks, and elderly martial art masters, I highley advise you to reconsider those thoughts. Sand Land enters a whole new world, devoide of dragon balls, and aliens... But despite all that the world is still in danger from a much more selfish threat!
