Return to Canifis is the sequel to the first RuneScape novel, Betrayal at Falador[1] and precedes Legacy of Blood. The book was released on 25 March 2011 in the United Kingdom and on 22 March in the United States and Canada[2]. The price is £5.75 in the United Kingdom and $7.19 (USD) in the United States. [3] The book takes place in Varrock, Canifis, and Meiyerditch briefly.


Varrock is the greatest human city in the world, yet it is a city filled with dangerous secrets. People have been disappearing, taken by an inhuman abductor. Its victims are murdered...or worse. For some are spirited away to Morytania, the land where vampires rule. As Kara-Meir and her friends – heroes of the Battle of Falador – gather for the Midsummer Festival, unrest grows against the crown. A conspiracy is unmasked, and the King is forced to send representatives across the holy river to Canifis, the capital of Morytania. For reasons of his own, he selects the now famous heroine Kara-meir, as well as Gar'rth, unique in his knowledge of the land of the dead. They are accompanied by Theodore, Doric the dwarf, the wizard Castimir, and the barbarian priestess Arisha, on a mission that will force Gar'rth to confront his werewolf heritage, and will reveal secrets that will test their loyalties to the limit.

For the price of failure in Morytania is far worse than death, and if their mission fails then a new King will rule in Varrock. A King who is lord of both the living and the dead.

  • On several occasions, such as on page 307 or 359, the word 'desire' is misprinted as 'deSire'.
  • In the description quoted above, it is said that Canifis is the capital of Morytania. Neither the novel itself nor its back cover make any such claim, however, and the text of the novel in fact contradicts the notion .




  • The titles of the book most likely come from Raymond E. Feist's games and later novels Betrayal at Krondor and Return to Krondor.
