DARK HORSE RETURNS TO THE WORLD OF DRAGON AGE
WITH UNABRIDGED EDITION OF “HARD IN HIGHTOWN”
Varric’s Work Comes To Life!
This in-world novel follows the adventures of Donnen Brennokovic, a weathered and weary city guardsman who finds himself paired with a fresh-faced recruit. While on a routine patrol, the unlikely duo stumbles across the body of a murdered magistrate, and soon find themselves embroiled in a clash between Chantry agents and a shadowy organization known as the Executors, over a mysterious ancient artifact.
What unfolds is a fast-paced crime noir full of adventure, passion, and Varric’s signature panache to keep readers hooked.
Ghostwritten by Mary Kirby, who wrote Varric for both Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition, and gorgeously illustrated by Stefano Martino, Álvaro Sarraseca, Andres Ponce, and German Ponce, with a painted cover by E.M. Gist, Dragon Age: Hard in Hightown is an essential addition to Dragon Age fans’ collections!
