The Story so far....
Betrayal at Falador is the first fantasy novel based on the online world of RuneScape, one of the most popular adventure games in the world. It is the first of a proposed series of novels based in the world of Gielinor, and is targeted at a teenage/young-adult readership. Despite being based on the popular fantasy game, the book can be read and enjoyed by anyone without any prior experience of RuneScape, appealing to a wide audience of fantasy readers.
The novel has received excellent feedback to date from readers on the RuneScape forums. Alternatively, visit Amazon to see other reviews (although please be aware that the book is not sold through Amazon by the publisher).
Currently, the novel is available only through RuneScape's online shop. It is not being sold through any high street store in any country.
As of this time, the book is published in hardback only, and is 416 pages in length with approx 136,000 words.
