I just finished an illustration of Oroook, that Unger Wizard who first appeared in Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger. Even though Oroook was only in the book for a few scant moments, he set off quite a chain of events in Kendra’s life—and so far, we’ve never had any insight into his motivation. That will change in the final Kendra book, The Search for Arazeen.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Oroook, especially since he is one of the few characters who I’ve killed off (see my post on that subject). So, sadly, we won’t actually get to meet Oroook directly again, but in this final Kendra book readers will come to learn more about his history and how he came to meet Kendra’s mother, the infamous sorceress Kayla Kandlestar.
