I have been provided with an advance copy of the new Descent: Journeys in the Dark book The Doom of Fallowhearth, published by Aconyte Books, so here is the honest review I promised in exchange for the book.

So here is an important disclaimer which is always important to put out there first. I have a casual work contact with Asmodee to demonstrate board games for them in stores and at conventions. Asmodee being the parent company of Aconyte the publisher.

Secondly I am a friend of Robbie’s on Face

Reading a novel based on a game was a new experience for me (I think!) and one that I'm glad to have had. The story is pure fantasy and a wonderful read. The writing is brilliant. The characters are solid and likeable/hateable (delete as appropriate). The ending took me completely by surprise... though maybe it shouldn't have! This is one to buy, keep on a very easy to reach shelf, and read again and again.

My thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for an advance copy to review. This revi

In the grim dark future there is only war! Oops wrong books, yet another excellent book from Robbie MacNiven, if I have a complaint it’s only that there were no space marines (so far...,) 😉
