Riot Games announced today that its first-ever League of Legends novella entitled “Garen: First Shield” written by Anthony Reynolds is now available for purchase.
Based on the synopsis, the story is set in Demacia after a time where the King has died. And apparently, “in the eyes of Garen Crownguard, it’s his fault”. The main plot follows Quinn and the Dauntless Vanguard, who join Garen for a peacetime expedition beyond Demacia. There, they uncover something that “threatens to destroy long-standing alliances”.
While Quinn attempts to make her way back to the city to break the news to the kingdom, Garen and his comrades were left fighting their last stand. The question is, “how long can they last, and at what cost?”.
League of Legends fans can read the full story by downloading Garen: First Shield on Amazon Kindle, where a digital copy is available for US$4.99. The 153-page novella is also available in Spanish, Japanese, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese.
The author of the book Anthony Reynolds has written fantasy stories for Warhammer 40,000. He is also the man behind the Tales of Heresy series, and other fictional titles.
Riot Games previously released fully illustrated League of Legends comic books in collaboration with Marvel on Ashe, Lux, and Zed.
