While the immense popularity of Arrow and the various TV series that have spun off from it is undeniable, it’s probably safe to say that not everyone reading this is aware that the adventures have spilled into other media. To date, various comic books and novels have been published, each enriching this universe by serving as prequels or bridging gaps between seasons.
So, in the spirit of the Arrow Season 2.5 comics, a new novel titled Arrow: Fatal Legacies intends on letting us know what happened in the space separating seasons 5 and 6. Before we proceed any further, let’s take a look at the official synopsis for this 320-page tome provided by Amazon.
The untold story bridging between ARROW seasons 5 and 6, exclusive to this novel! In the devastating aftermath of season five, Team Arrow must resume their mission to protect Star City. Those who have survived Chase’s trap on Lian Yu discover that his plans did not end there. If his legacies aren’t stopped, countless more will die. Co-authored by Arrow series producer Marc Guggenheim and James R. Tuck (Robin Hood: Mark of the Black Arrow).
Now, if you’re thinking that you’re about to get your hands on any juicy spoilers regarding who survived the blast in May’s finale, please note this book won’t hit shelves until January 30, 2018. Thus, you’ll have to tune in to the season 6 premiere on Thursday, October 12 on The CW in order to find out like everybody else. Regardless, we expect the reading experience to be no less riveting.
Still, it’s quite intriguing to learn that Prometheus had contingencies in place even after his death. What’s more is that Guggenheim himself confirmed via Twitter that Vigilante will also be putting in an appearance, so there’re certainly a lot of reasons for Arrow fans to anticipate this novel.
