Seriously? Didn't know they had a second one even. Unless the second was The Amulet of Power? In that case, I didn't know they had a first one:D

Man of Bronze? That would be Doc Savage.

In the worst case it would be Kurtis Trent:rolleyes:
Hopefully this author hasn't played/heard about the games enough to know who that is...

The second one is due for release, at least at Amazon.com US, on 3 August this year. It's called "Lara Croft-Tomb Raider-The Lost Cult". The author is EE Knight, who is an author of sci-fi and vampire fiction books. The author joined this forum last year, posted once for insights into the game, and monitored the forum for a while.

I didn't know until the first novel came out that Eidos had even given approval for the novels to be written, they never announced anything. I wonder how many novels there will be?

I love the books they have captured who Lara is which she is a very sweet chilling girl

Sure hope these novels have lots of high quality CGI images like a book should and also Lara in a light blue top and also her slightly different appearance in AOD.

nbs there are no pictures, only text.

Wish they'd make version 2 comics with Video game Lara images rather than a different looking Lara.

Cool. These books really could be cool if made into a TV cartoon CGI series like Shrek or Toy Story or Action Man or Max Steele style CGI. But would that spoil the stories in the games?

No pictures? I guess comics are a lot more picturesque in that sense. Would try reading it though.

Try to finish school and become a brain surgeon first though.

the amulet of power, did not repersent the true lara croft, the person who wrote it ( no offence to the writer..but) either did'nt
know who or play the tomb raider game's..so i hope that the next
person/s who write a tomb raider book at least do'se his home work on the charater
