Well, it’s happened. After many months of arduous labour by Gollancz’s interactive team, the DestinyQuest eBook has finally come kicking and screaming into the world.
With The Legion of Shadow special edition now unleashed on the gaming public, it seems a perfect time to look ahead to the future of DestinyQuest®. This November will see the release of the second book in the DQ series, The Heart of Fire. Like all the books in the DQ series, it can be played as a stand-alone title, but to really get the most out of the story, the characters and the various ‘in-game’ references, it helps to read the books in sequence. And of course, there is the opportunity to use your hero from The Legion of Shadow in the new book, teaming up with your Heart of Fire hero to take on some truly epic foes.
Well, it’s only 2 days to go until the launch of DestinyQuest: The Legion of Shadow, so to raise your geek excitement to unprecedented levels (well, I can try...), I thought I’d show you a sneak peek of the books! I’ve literally only just received them and, I'll admit, there was a little bit of trepidation mixed in with the excitement as I hastily tore away the packaging to reveal the books.
Calling all valiant champions (and nefarious villains!) – to celebrate the imminent launch of The Legion of Shadow, myself and Gollancz are offering the first in a number of exciting giveaway competitions. And there’s loot – oh yes, epic loot my treasure-seeking friends. So read on, for your chance to grab some of these rare items to aid your future adventures.

Well, The Heart of Fire manuscript is sent - and as Doris Day once crooned, ‘Que Sera, Sera...’
