The story revolves around Amy Durant, a young girl who witnesses a malevolent entity known as “The Fire Man” claiming the lives of her entire family in a destructive blaze.

Set against the backdrop of the captivating city of New Orleans, the allure, history, and mystery of the location add depth to a thrilling story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
Mutti, the artist behind CHARRED REMAINS, emphasizes the realness of the creature, promising a wild adventure that blurs the line between reality and scorching temperatures. Amy’s quest to find this monstrous being, fueled by her resolute nature, takes readers on a relentless search through her past trauma. It becomes a race against time to uncover the truth—it couldn’t have been a mere figment of her imagination; it was far more than a nightmare.
