The Dungeon on Blood Island

Fighting Fantasy fans, rejoice! Sir Ian Livingstone is writing a brand new Fighting Fantasy gamebook to mark the 40th anniversary of the publication of Deathtrap Dungeon.

Deathtrap Dungeon was the No.1 bestselling children’s book in the UK in 1984, and the 8th bestselling book overall in the UK, even including adult titles.

The Dungeon on Blood Island is a long-awaited sequel.

Jealous of the fame and fortune that Baron Sukumvit’s Deathtrap Dungeon had brought him, his brother Lord Carnuss and an army of slaves spend five years building the ultimate dungeon on Blood Island. Offering a prize of the Golden Orb of Fang, he challenges all-comers to risk their lives to find this priceless treasure and escape with it alive. Filled with deadly creatures, lethal traps, fierce competitors, and danger lurking at every turn, are YOU brave enough to enter The Dungeon on Blood Island?

The cover for The Dungeon on Blood Island will feature an original painting by Iain McCaig who painted the original Deathtrap Dungeon cover. It will also feature internal illustrations by Hungarian artist Krisztián Balla and a new map of Allansia by Leo Hartas.

Sir Ian said, “40 years is a very long time to wait for a sequel, but I hope fans of Deathtrap Dungeon both old and new will enjoy my new Fighting Fantasy gamebook The Dungeon on Blood Island. I have tried my best to lure readers to their doom with every choice they make! May their STAMINA never fail!”
