Baris Mustecaplioglu's unique way of interconnecting spells, people and events with the symbols referred to in the subtexts is more apparent in this book. First, innocence dressed as a child who stops a savage god with a kiss, then the secret buried under the Statue of Merderan, and now the mysteries of the Land of Fuoli conceal deeper meanings than just being adventures that aim to entertain the reader.

The Legends of Perg, whose third book in series was recently published, both deserves a place next to the masterpieces of fantastic literature and also paves the way for new writers who wish to write in this genre.

All through the novel which includes magic, spells, curses and innumerable interesting creatures, many concepts that are not mentioned or nullified in our modern day play an important role. The fact that it is only the child-like God of Innocence has the power to overcome Tshermon who terrorizes the entire Land of Perg and that the attribute of divinity can be earned not by power itself like it is always believed but by wisdom can be counted as such.

Although the tradition of fantastic literature of the 20th century has recently been named as a literary genre, the Legends of Perg is a series that gathers the fantastic cultural tradition of our land of tales, which has enchanted us since we were in the cradle: Young and brave burfen men who wear short embroidered jackets, rulers who live in their castles of glass, godtowers embellished with majolica, and four masterpieces that elevate the power of what is called local to the world standards.

The most exciting components of the story are the creatures created with black magic. In the Coward and the Monster, which we read as the first book of the Legends of Perg series consisting of four books, we also get to know positive characters such as Leofold, Guorin and Geryan. However, the author has not empowered them with fully good characteristics. Thus, these characters, who have both weaknesses and strengths, who go through pain and sorrow, who feel the pricks of conscience and vengeance, discover the depths of their own selves as they move forward in the story. In that case, we can define The Coward and the Monster as a Bildungsroman (formation novel)...

The Legends of Perg is much better than many stories presented under ostentatious covers with fancy, embossed dragons.
