The first novel, dubbed The Infernal City, will become available this autumn . The book is set after the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The story revolves around a floating mysterious city casting a horrifying shadow. Wherever it falls, people die and rise again as undead.

The main characters will be a seventeen-year-old girl named Annaig and the Emperor’s young son, Prince Attrebus. The duo will travel through the Elder Scrolls universe and save the kingdom as they see fit.
