Welcome to a different kind of Twilight

When certain types of fantasy novel become popular, you often see a rush to capitalise and slake the thirst of these new readers with more of the same. But are you tired of the same old fantasy titles? Weary of cookie cutter fantasy worlds which peddle the same old clich├ęs?

Then you need a change of scenery. Welcome to a different kind of Twilight.

Twilight of Kerberos is one of Abaddon’s original shared worlds – a realm like no other, rocked by war and religious schism, its lands surrounded by impassable mountains and impenetrable storms, dimly lit by a distant sun.

It is dominated by great Kerberos, an azure gas giant that fills the sky. To some, Kerberos is a god. To others, it is another world. Its nature is a mystery, and uncovering its secrets – as, it is whispered, the Elder Races strove to do before they were wiped out – has rocked the world of Twilight to its core.

The Twilight of Kerberos: The Wrath of Kerberos by Jonathan Oliver is the first chapter in the end of the Twilight saga.

Suddenly stranded in a desert by a magical storm, Silus Morlader must lead the crew of the Llothriall across the harsh landscape in search of civilisation. What they find will change their view of the world forever. A new race reveals to Silus that his god, the planet-deity Kerberos, is not all he appears to be; that everything they understand about life on Twilight may be wrong.

It’s also is the first time Abaddon Books has published a brand new title only as an ebook.

At just £4.99 from the Rebellion store you’d be daft not to pick it up! Treat yourself to a whole new world and catch the beginning of the final chapter in the story of Kerberos.

And with the success of the recent series omnibuses – including the The Best of Tomes of the Dead and Afterblight: America – and capitalising on the growing US readership who are discovering Abaddon’s startlingly fresh shared-worlds, Abaddon Books has decided to focus the Twilight range on this format.

The long-awaited third book of the Lucius Kane Trilogy by Matthew Sprange, Legacy’s Price, will see print this March as part of the first Twilight of Kerberos Omnibus, with two more omnibuses in the series to collect the titles by Mike Wild and Jonathan Oliver.

All the titles in the Twilight of Kerberos series are available as ebooks through the Rebellion store
