DestinyQuest : The Legion of Shadow
DestinyQuest: The Legion of Shadow takes its influence from two genres, the 'choose your own adventure' book and the computer role-playing game. It uses an innovative map system to allow readers to experience exciting quests, battle fearsome monsters and discover valuable rewards. Through their adventures, the reader can customise their hero from a selection of 400 items and 80 special abilities, allowing them to take on ever-greater challenges as they seek to save the kingdom from the sinister Legion of Shadow. Author Michael J. Ward draws on 10 years publishing experience and over 30 years of gaming to create a unique product; a book that draws on the latest innovations in computer-game design and fuses them with the old-style game books that initially attracted him to fantasy when he was younger. Aimed at readers of 12 and above, DestinyQuest will appeal to gamers and fantasy-enthusiasts as well as fans of online games such as World of Warcraft.

About Michael J. Ward
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.
