BBC Children's Books have now released the synopses for the first three The Darksmith Legacy books. The first two will go on sale on the twenty ninth of January and third will be released a month later on the twenty sixth of February. You can view the synopses below;

1. The Dust of Ages
The Doctor arrives just in time to lend a helping hand to a survey team of scientists drilling beneath the Moon’s surface to discover the cause of an unusual power source. The adventure continues with deadly lunar dust and a Crystal that has been lost for centuries…. Unfortunately it’s just what the Darksmiths have been looking for and they have despatched an Agent to recover it. At any cost.

2. The Graves of Mordane
Convinced that the Doctor is Varlos, the Agent demands the return of the Eternity Crystal. But what happened on Mordane to make the Crystal too dangerous to be left on the Moon? The Doctor has to convince the Agent that he is not Varlos and doesn’t know what happened on Mordane, then escape with the TARDIS and find out. The Doctor decides that the Eternity Crystal must be destroyed but before he can the Agent and the Crystal vanish. He has to find the Agent, which leaves the Doctor only one option, and he doesn’t like it…

3. The Colour of Darkness
The Doctor travels to Karagula to meet the fabled Darksmiths in a bid to outwit the Agent and get the crystal. Can the Doctor uncover the mystery of the childless village? Who is the travelling Dreams-Merchant? Is there a link with the Dark Cathedral of the Darksmiths? Will the Agent arrive and identify the Doctor to the Darksmiths? Find out by reading the third exciting instalment of The Darksmith Legacy!

You can view the titles for all ten books which will be released next year and more information about The Darksmith Legacy in general here in a previous post. Each novel will end on a cliffhanger and more information about this set of books will be posted as it becomes available. What do you think of these synopses?

    Great news Mark! Without a doubt you have the best Who related fan-blog online. When other sites are making excuses, and saying there is nothing to report you always find something. Your posts are written with way more care than than most, and you don't stoop to using SMS speak, or garbage grammar such as "anywho" or "Squeeness". If I had an award to give you I would. You are the true professional. You rock.

    I am gonna get all of these. I've recently made a blogger site but I'm not very good. Can someone tell how to add the reminders of the next episodes at the side of the page and how to create a personalised title/logo.
