NARR8 Launches Adaptation Of Bestselling Novel Series

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today digital publisher NARR8 released the first episode of " The Secret City", an adaptation of bestselling novel series by Russian author Vadim Panov . Akin to Neil Gaiman for audiences in the US, Panov has sold over 5 million books marking him as one of the most popular writers in Russia. The series is presented in a reading format akin to an eBook but complemented by animation, sound and elements of gamification.

In "The Secret City" magical races of gnomes, elves, witches, and vampires exist but only in the shadows. The story is one of epic war between these mysterious enchanted creatures and the humans who drove them into hiding in a place we know today as New York. The adapted series was developed by one of NARR8's ten in-house studios, Midian Studio, creator of interactive novel " Fear Hunters" available on the NARR8 platform.

NARR8 delivers episodic fiction and non-fiction multimedia series for the iPad® and iPad® Mini and will be available for download on Android smartphones and tablets with an operating system of 4.0 or higher starting next month.

In 2001, Panov made his debut as an author with Wars Are Started by Losers, the first novel in the urban fantasy series, "The Secret City" which is comprised of 15 novels and 2 books of short stories. Panov has been awarded the prestigious "Fantasy Writer of the Year" award twice at RosCon, the largest event for fantasy writers and literary agents presented by leading Russian publishing house Exmo. A prolific writer, Panov has authored numerous books that span many genres, including the pentalogy of Enclaves, the mystery series La Mystique de Moscou, and a number of steam punk novels collectively referred to as the Hermeticon.

In celebration of the launch, Panov sat down with NARR8 to discuss the project as well as the expanding medium of interactive series. To read the interview with Vadim Panov and download images and an all-new video from "The Secret City", please visit:
