Publisher's Summary

This audiobook features dramatized audio performances by a full cast - featuring some your favourite Riot voices.

Discover an epic tale of magic, revenge, and an empire on the verge of ruin in the first ever novel set in the blockbuster universe of League of Legends.

Camavor is a brutal land with a bloody legacy. Where the empire's knights go, slaughter follows.

Kalista seeks to change that. When her young and narcissistic uncle, Viego, becomes king, she vows to temper his destructive instincts, as his loyal confidant, advisor, and military general. But her plans are thwarted when an assassin's poisoned blade strikes Viego's wife, Isolde, afflicting her with a malady for which there is no cure.

As Isolde's condition worsens, Viego descends into madness and grief, threatening to drag Camavor down with him. Kalista makes a desperate gambit to save the kingdom: she searches for the long lost Blessed Isles, rumored to hold the queen's salvation, if only Kalista can find them.

But corruption grows in the Blessed Isles' capital, where a vengeful warden seeks to ensnare Kalista in his cruel machinations. She will be forced to choose between her loyalty to Viego and doing what she knows is right-for even in the face of utter darkness, one noble act can shine a light that saves the world.

Very enjoyable

Absoltely loved it. Storyline was fantastic. Being a league of legends player I did know some of the story before listening to it, however that did not deduct from the experience. Its also worth noting there is plenty of little "easter eggs" hidden such as characters abilities in the game being included in the book. It is however not nessesary to know any of the lore or even have played the game before listening to the book.

Mostly for league players

It’s a nice read for league players, but i think most people won’t like it as much.

Absolutely better than I would have imagined

This was such a good listen. Firstly the story is gripping and keeps you engaged the whole way through. Plenty of twists and character development that is believable and relatable.

The readers are also very good and after only a few mins I was totally hooked in!

Miscast but interesting tale

Very hammy, shouty acting and random accents detracted from a decent romp through a fantasy world. Got the feeling the director gave up trying to rein in the actors’ worst instincts.

One of the best audio books I've ever listened too

This story is incredible and easy to follow. They actually used the voice actors from the game. So it's like you're literally watching a movie without a screen.

I'd recommend this to everyone. I really hope riot games will make more audio/books about the characters and world. They got over 165 characters!

Absolutely incredible

I loved this audiobook from start to finish. Even for people that do not play or know of the game. It is so incredibly narrated by a rich array of people. But of course the story takes the cake I was not able to stop listening and found myself looking for time to finish this asap.

Amazing voices, okay story

The story is completely predictable, but that's okay. It's an intresting read and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys league of legends or arcane, even if they don't know the characters.

The voice acting is amazing, most of the characters are voiced by the same people lwho did there in game voice and it shows, adding a level of polish to the final product.

Thrilling read! Cannot wait to hear more of the expanded universe

As a fan of both League of Legends and Legends of Runeterra, it was fantastic to come across characters from both games with the original voice actors who performed their roles excellently. The narration was continuously engaging and kept me hooked. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fantasy regardless of whether they have played the games or not.

P.S remove Yuumi from the game, come on RIOT

Epic

As a huge league fan, this did it justice. It's a bit slow to get into but just wait for it.
