The Darksmith Legacy

The tenth and final book in the Darksmith Legacy has now been released and information about it can be seen below:

The End of Time
Justin Richards

The Krashoks commissioned the Darksmith Collective to fashion a device that creates life.

The Krashoks, after waiting for centuries, have finally had their contract fulfilled.

They intend to detonate the Eternity Crystal unless the Doctor can stop them.

To make matters worse, Gisella is trapped on board the Krashoks’ ship.

Can the Doctor save Gisella and destroy the Eternity Crystal once and for all?

For those who, like me, haven't been buying the Darksmith Legacy and know nothing about it, details and all of the covers can be seen below:

This ten-book series follows the Doctor on his exciting journey to discover the origins of the so-called Eternity Crystal and the powerful artisans who created it - the Darksmiths. The books have interactive elements, readers having the options to go to the tie-in website to add points to a tally of points accumulated so as to access further additional content.

The Darksmith Legacy's overall storyline was devised by Justin Richards who also wrote four of the ten titles.
Each title in the series is priced £4.99 meaning it costs £49.90 to complete the epic story.

The Books:
- Apart from the fiction, the books have TARDIS Data Banks containing more information and activity pages designed to tie in with the websites.
- Each book ends in a cliffhanger leading on to the opening paragraphs of the next installment of this ongoing storyline. With the exception, obviously, of the first book, the first chapter of each book begins with a reprise of the cliffhanger a la the TV series.
- Additionally, the books have cut-out or downloadable coupons entitling readers to an invitation to a party in London, provided they had completed the challenges.
The first 500 entries providing proof of purchase of any two titles in the series also could receive an exclusive slipcase for the ten-book series.

The final point there brings us on to another piece of news;

To celebrate the end of the Darksmith Legacy, Penguin Books are holding an exclusive Darksmith Collected Party for fans who have collected all 10 books and completed the quests online.

All players who complete the final quest will automatically be entered into a free prize draw to win tickets to this amazing event where they can meet the authors, come face to face with some very scary monsters and even get an exclusive sneak-preview of things to come…!

From Penguin group news:

“This has been the most fantastic project that everyone should be proud of. Not just Justin and his team of writers, but everyone who worked on the web side of things, the design, covers, everyone at Penguin. Thank you for making such a good product that we can all be proud of.” Gary Russell Script Editor, BBC Drama

“The Darksmith activity will culminate in October when 100 lucky fans will win the chance to attend a Collected party at a top secret location for a fantastic Doctor Who extravaganza.”
