The first in an exciting new series of heroic fantasy novels, Zachareth, explores the past of one of Descent: Legends of the Dark’s most notorious villains

Zachareth, Baron of Carthridge, is a driven, ruthless and obsessive man – a man who could be a hero, but he wants so much more. Having watched his father fall under the sway of a sorceress, Zachareth grows up craving knowledge and power. When his tutor at Greyhaven introduces him to forbidden magics, Zachareth discovers there is more to power than meets the eye. As he returns home to a barony on the verge of rebellion and beset by necromantic foes, Zachareth must choose his true path – the path of virtue and heroism, or that of darkness and villany; the line between the two is finer than most imagine.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“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

"It's clear that MacNiven knows his stuff, and the fights feel like they leap off the page and are wonderfully clear and easy to follow. He gives plenty of detail, enough that you can clearly picture everything that's happening, and you'll soon find yourself getting swept up by the grandeur of it." - Trans-Scribe

"MacNiven does not disappoint: the story starts off fast and has action and humor and at no point does it drag on unnecessarily." - A Library Thing

"I honestly cannot recommend this enough. A fantastic standalone fantasy, a wonderful stepping stone into the world of Descent or a way to get more lore and depth to characters of the game. A definite must read if you like the game or fantasy in general." - What You Tolkien About
