A Descent: Legends of the Dark Novel

By Davide Mana

A wandering outcast must reconcile their brutal past and their need for vengeance in this action-packed fantasy novel from Descent: Legends of the Dark

Soldier. Dreamer. Exile.

Dragon hybrid Vaerix has already lived an age in Terrinoth and seen more than their fair share of horror and hatred. Cast out for their strange ability to dream, Vaerix wanders the world in search of connection.

When an expedition to the volcanic Molten Heath offers Vaerix the chance to confront those who wronged them, they cannot resist the temptation. But there is more at stake than treasure and truth. There are powers here beyond comprehension, and everyone has their own game to play. The future of Terrinoth will be written in blood and flame.

Terrinoth: an ancient realm of forgotten greatness and faded legacies, of magic and monsters, heroes, and tyrants. Its cities were ruined and their secrets lost as terrifying dragons, undead armies, and demon-possessed hordes ravaged the land. Over centuries, the realm slipped into gloom… Now, the world is reawakening – the Baronies of Daqan rebuild their domains, wizards master lapsed arts, and champions test their mettle. Banding together to explore the dangerous caves, ancient ruins, dark dungeons, and cursed forests of Terrinoth, they unearth priceless treasures and terrible foes. Yet time is running out, for in the shadows a malevolent force has grown, preparing to spread evil across the world. Now, when the land needs them most, is the moment for its heroes to rise.

“If you love fantasy and enjoy a brilliantly vivid story then you cannot go wrong with this one!”
What You Tolkien About

Praise for the Descent Series

“Page-turningly addictive… It’s quite dark and surprisingly powerful, and a far more emotional story than you might expect. Very much worth checking out.”

Track of Words, on The Doom of Fallowhearth

“The Raiders of Bloodwood really does deliver. It’s a action packed fantasy novel which will keep you on the edge of your seat. It has all the makes of a good old fantasy adventure, a misfit band of heroes with their own strengths and weaknesses, heart pounding action, and amazing battle scenes with touches and hints of horror along the way.”
