Story by Julien Blondel, Art by Shonen
Doomed by a past long forgotten, resolved to save what she once held dear.
The flame is lit. A nameless woman wakes. Roused from the tomb by a past she cannot recall, she sets out into a barren, unfamiliar landscape. The protector follows. Bound by oath and honor, he safeguards her against the dangers that draw near with the same ferocity he does the secrets of his past. The Gray Cinders gather in their tower, called by the fire to complete their solemn duty. A colossus, incarnate of death, stirs with the bones beneath the scarred grounds. And a nightmare—scourge of a bygone era—returns to exact its toll. The fate of this land hangs in the balance, as their journey unfolds in this original DARK SOULS story!  

Acquired by Kadokawa Corporation in 2014, FromSoftware is a sister company to Yen Press. Through the years, Yen Press has published a variety of books based on FromSoftware properties, such as Sekiro Side Story: Hanbei the Undying and ELDEN RING: The Road to the Erdtree. In October 2022, Yen Press published the original novel DARK SOULS: Masque of Vindication, written by Michael Stackpole, as part of a worldwide release with Kadokawa. 
The Yen Press edition of DARK SOULS: REDEMPTION is set for an August 2024 release in both print and digital.
