DK Publishing Announces Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals

June 27th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Fans of the new Tomb Raider game can rejoice as DK continues the story in a new novel…

DK, a division of Penguin Random House is thrilled to reveal the publishing of Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals. The novel broadens the Tomb Raider world, and continues the storyline introduced in the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Tomb Raider video game, released March 2013. The storyline is written in conjunction with the developers at Crystal Dynamics, and is authored by New York Times best-selling author Dan Abnett and Nik Vincent. Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals will release in October 2014

The novel picks up Lara’s journey immediately following the game’s ending. Haunted by what she was forced to endure in order to survive her first adventure, Lara Croft® wants only to put her horrifying ordeal on Yamatai island behind her. Her modest wish shatters as she’s plunged into a frantic race to save her best friend Sam from a toxic overdose. Desperate for a remedy, Lara searches for anything that could help Sam. A wisp of hope arising from a myth gives Lara purpose: the story of an ancient and mysterious artifact that could heal her dying friend, and possibly help explain the supernatural events she witnessed on Yamatai.

However, Lara is not alone in her pursuit of the treasure. A nefarious magnate, a shadow society, and lethal henchmen will stop at nothing to exploit the powerful relic for their own ends. The hunt drives Lara across the globe, through a twisted web of conspiracy, suspicious contacts, and life-or-death intrigue, as she seeks salvation for her friend and the truth behind the legendary talisman.

Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals is available now for pre-order wherever books are sold.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
