Tales Of Tamriel, Book II: The Lore

If you haven’t already done so, make sure to read and watch my reviews of The Skyrim Library: Volume IVolume II, and Volume III. Titan Books, the same publisher that brought us The Skyrim Library, has two additional books celebrating the lore of The Elder Scrolls. You can read my review of the first one here. These books build on the excellence of the original trilogy by collecting lore books from The Elder Scrolls Online, and it’s a phenomenal way to immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of this celebrated video game franchise. Watch my video review below for all of the details and to get a glimpse of what’s inside the second book in this series: Tales of Tamriel, Book II: The Lore.

Released in 2019 by Insight Editions, this cookbook does a wonderful job of respecting its source material and providing gamers and foodies alike with a wealth of options to try at home. As a longtime fan of the Elder Scrolls franchise, I appreciate having the opportunity to create dishes I’ve only ever seen in the games. It’s a fascinating and brilliant bridge between Tamriel and reality. Yes, other cookbooks have done this in the past. However, the Elder Scrolls games are steeped in rich history and culture that goes beyond other titles – making this book feel like an artifact one might find and read in Skyrim, Oblivion, or Morrowind.

All of us are holed up in our homes, doing our best to flatten the curve during the coronavirus crisis. This can result in many people becoming bored or going stir crazy. Over the past couple weeks, I discovered a wonderful way to pass the time: The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO).
