A handful of heroes stand between a monstrous horde and the destruction of the mystical heart of Terrinoth, in this nonstop fantasy novel from the world of Descent: Legends of the Dark 

The invasion of Terrinoth has begun. Brutal Uthuk Y’llan hordes swarm across the land, ravaging everything in their path. A great champion has arisen in the Darklands: Beastmaster Th’Uk Tar, bent on destroying the wild and mystical Bloodwood as his first step in conquering the great forests of the Aymhelin and annihilating the elves who call it home. If the Amyhelin burns, so will Terrinoth. Trapped between his army and the forest are a misfit band of elven, orcish, catfolk, and human refugees. To repel the murderous Beastmaster, they must overcome their differences, embrace their skills, and learn the secrets of the Bloodwood. They are the realm’s only hope.

— Big Geordie Geek

"With skill and competence, Davide Mana creates a strong, immersive, classic story."
— Mondi Immaginari

"The Raiders of Bloodwood really does deliver. It’s a action packed fantasy novel which will keep you on the edge of your seat. It as all the makes of a good old fantasy adventure, a misfit band of heroes with their own strengths and weaknesses, heart pounding action, and amazing battle scenes with touches and hints of horror along the way."
— What You Tolkien About

“It’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s literally dripping with personality, and what’s more, you need absolutely zero knowledge of the setting. This is a perfect franchise genre novel in my opinion.”
— Big Geordie Geek, on The Shield of Daqan
