Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals novel is a direct sequel to 2013 game

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
The follow-up to the recent reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise won’t hit shelves until 2015, but fans of the new (and some would say, improved) Lara Croft won’t have to wait that long to find out what happened in the aftermath of Tomb Raider and Lara’s harrowing island adventure. An upcoming novel will pick up where the 2013 game left off.

Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals is written by Dan Abnett and Nik Vincent, and it unfolds within the new continuity of the franchise, beginning at the conclusion of the game’s narrative and offering up a new, in-canon adventure featuring Lara Croft. The plot synopsis for the book, which will be available October 2014, is as follows:

Haunted by what she was forced to endure in order to survive her first adventure, Lara Croft wants only to put her horrifying ordeal on Yamatai island behind her. Her modest wish shatters as she’s plunged into a frantic race to save her best friend Sam from a toxic overdose. Desperate for a remedy, Lara searches for anything that could help Sam. A wisp of hope arising from a myth gives Lara purpose: the story of an ancient and mysterious artifact that could heal her dying friend, and possibly help explain the supernatural events she witnessed on Yamatai.

However, Lara is not alone in her pursuit of the treasure. A nefarious magnate, a shadow society, and lethal henchmen will stop at nothing to exploit the powerful relic for their own ends. The hunt drives Lara across the globe, through a twisted web of conspiracy, suspicious contacts, and life-or-death intrigue, as she seeks salvation for her friend and the truth behind the legendary talisman.

Award-winning British author Dan Abnett is probably best known for his work in comics, where he helped relaunch Marvel Comics’ Guardians of the Galaxy series and penned the recent series The New Deadwardians for DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. On the gaming side, Abnett also contributed to the upcoming Alien: Isolation and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, as well as penning the screenplay for 2010’s Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie.

Tomb Raider: The Ten Thousand Immortals is being published by Brady Games. You can pre-order it now via BradyGames.com.
