The Infernal City: An Elder Scrolls Novel - Greg Keyes Book Description

Four decades after the Oblivion Crisis, Tamriel is threatened anew by an ancient and all-consuming evil. It is Umbriel, a floating city that casts a terrifying shadow–for wherever it falls, people die and rise again.

And it is in Umbriel’s shadow that a great adventure begins, and a group of unlikely heroes meet. A legendary prince with a secret. A spy on the trail of a vast conspiracy. A mage obsessed with his desire for revenge. And Annaig, a young girl in whose hands the fate of Tamriel may rest . . . .

Based on the award-winning The Elder Scrolls, The Infernal City is the first of two exhilarating novels following events that continue the story from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, named 2006 Game of the Year.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book Reviews

  • Fantastic! Not a great finish

    By Boatgames101
    A truly gripping tale with fantastic descriptions, and character development. Although as gripping as this tale was, its way to quick to an end and could have been tied together a little better.
  • Great book

    By Boring game ever
    A great book for elder scrolls fans
  • The vintage chief

    By Chiefdijon
    Wow, such a great read. More than worthy of bearing the Elder Scrolls name. 10/10

    By JaykeSauce
    Very good read.
  • ""The Infernal City"

    By Corby Brown
    The novel itself is a bit fast to the finish and characters do come and go, however; the overall culture and mythical aura of "The Elder Scrolls" is all about this form of writing. If you are a foundational fan of this series, and enjoy the unexpected...this novel is compelling to the history, as well as the dynamic role of adventure Bethesda Softworks brings us in the games. Fantastic job, Greg Keyes, and my thanks for continuing a fantasy that has been with me since childhood. I look forward to reading "Lord of Souls", and other novels you have written!
  • Great read (or listen)

    By brendenzapp
    The book revolves around a few different characters that in the end eventually all have something in common. I had only played "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" before reading this (no the book has nothing to do with skyrim) and was humbled to hear phrases/races/places I already knew about. great exciting story and when it all comes together you definately get that "Whoaaa" feeling.

  • Not bad.

    By Zolgar
    It's not the greatest work of fiction ever written but it is certainly a nice fun read. If you're a fan of The Elder Scrolls and are looking to catch up on the events between the Oblivion crisis and when Skyrim starts then you should check this out.
  • Failed!!

    By Jjosephannah
    I bought the book and all it does is crash! I updated everything! I want my Money back. But I do love the game.
  • Great book!

    As a fan of the Elder Scrolls series, I was happy when I found out that a book was being written. While "Infernal City" isn't the most amazing thing I've ever read, it is a fun light read and will keep you hooked. I admit it doesn't have any of the Tamriellic lore from the games aside from taking place after the events of Oblivion but, if you want that, play the game and read the books in-game. "Infernal City" feels just like an Elder Scrolls novel should and is a fun light read. I greatly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who likes a good fantasy story or the Elder Scrolls series.
