Book Description

FIGHTING FANTASY meets WORLD OF WARCRAFT - a new type of adventure novel for a new generation. Complex, well-written and impossible to put down. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

You have no memory of your past.

With only a sword and a backpack to your name, you must discover your destiny in an unfamiliar world full of monsters and magic. The Legion of Shadow is on the march, and must be stopped.

As you guide your hero through this epic adventure, you will be choosing the danger that they face, the monsters that they fight and the treasures that they find. Every decision that you make will have an impact on the story - and, ultimately, the fate of your hero.

With hundreds of special items to discover, you can completely customise your hero. You can choose their weapons, their armour, their special abilities - even the boots on their feet and the cloak on their back! No two heroes will ever be alike, which means your story will always be unfolding.

Welcome to a new world. Welcome to Valeron. Welcome to DestinyQuest.

About the Author

Sheffield-born writer, Michael J. Ward, was introduced to the fantasy genre through the Fighting Fantasy game books in the eighties. Now living in the Midlands, Michael divides his time between writing DestinyQuest, working freelance and playing, by his own admission, far too many video games. This is his first fantasy novel to be published.
