A prequel to Amazon Studios' The Legend of Vox Machina!

Fans of the fantasy animated series from Critical Role and Amazon Studios won’t want to miss this original graphic novel - the first of three interconnected prequel stories!


Tragedy strikes the renowned de Rolo family of Whitestone when they’re massacred by the vicious Briarwoods. Luckily for Dr. Anna Ripley, the bloodshed and regime change presents the perfect opportunity for her to further her own dark plans in service to Whitestone’s new ruling family. But just how much of her loyalty lies with the family, when compared to her work?

**Written by Marieke Nijkamp (Critical Role: Vox Machina Kith and Kin) with art by Tyler Walpole, in collaboration with the cast of Critical Role!**

Marieke’s YA novels include: This Is Where It Ends, which follows four teens during the fifty-four minutes of a school shooting. Before I Let Go, a haunting murder mystery set during a cruel Alaskan winter. Even If We Break, a cabin-in-the-woods type thriller, following five teens, the RPG game that binds them, and the secrets that threaten to break them. At The End Of Everything, pitched as The Society meets Contagion.

Marieke also wrote the first Critical Role novel: Vox Machina—Kith & Kin.

Additionally, Marieke is the editor of Unbroken, an anthology of 13 stories starring disabled teens, written by disabled authors.
