Winner of the 2019 LGL award for Best International Gamebook. Written by Joe Dever's son Ben, and collaborator Vincent Lazzari, using extensive notes and hours of dictated instructions from Joe in the weeks leading up to his passing, Dead In The Deep is the first posthumous Lone Wolf book and forms the beginning of the end of the epic saga begun in 1984.
Grand Master Steel Hand, a powerful warrior of the New Order Kai, has disappeared in the ruins of the ancient Lyrisian city of Emolyria, which teeters on the brink of Maakengorge. This accursed place has become the largest mustering point for the servants of the Dark God Naar.
In DEAD IN THE DEEP, you must enter Emolyria’s vast dungeons unnoticed. The Brotherhood of the Crystal Star and the Sages of Varetta can help to clear the path, but you alone must walk it. In the depths of the Chasm of Doom lies a terrible but forgotten power. Burning and hungry, it is fed by the endless pain of the Restless Dead, making ready to rise from the Maakengorge and consume the Freelands of Magnamund. What dark secrets will you uncover in the abyss? Will you find your brother Kai alive? Will you succeed where he has failed?
This edition also features the Bonus Adventure: The Kaum Before The Storm, by August Hahn.
“The authors have not only captured Joe’s spirit, but the spirit of Magnamund, The Kai, and the peoples of that world. The heroism, the adventure and the soul of the world. If I didn't know he was gone I'd think this was still his writing. May Joe forever rest in our hearts and memories” - Nicholas Frye
