New Fantasy Novels from Abaddon Books

If you’re a fan of fantasy novels and books based on Arthurian Legend, two new offerings from Abaddon Books may be right up your alley!


The Black Chalice
by Steven Savile

First up is The Black Chalice, part of Malory’s Knights of Albion series. Taking place during the time of King Arthur and based on the 2006 copy of Sir Thomas Malory’s The Seconde Boke of kyng Arthur and also His noble Knyghts, it explores the stories of the less well-known knights like loyal Sir Alymere – and telling previously-unknown events from the lives of beloved characters close to Britain’s greatest king.

The synopsis from the press release:

Son of a knight and aspirant to the Round Table, Alymere yearns to take his place in the world, and for a quest to prove his worth. He comes across the foul Devil’s Bible – said to have been written in one night by an insane hermit – which leads and drives him, by turns, to seek the unholy Black Chalice, the Devil’s own grail. On his quest he will face, and overcome, dire obstacles and cunning enemies, becoming a knight of renown; but the ultimate threat is to his very soul.

On sale, March 15th, 2011 (US/Canada) & March 17th, 2011 (UK)!

 

TWILIGHT OF KERBEROS: The Trials of Trass Kathra
by Mike Wild

Next is the 8th book in the TWILIGHT OF KERBEROS series, The Trials of Trass Kathra. Torn apart by war and religious division, Twilight is a fantasy world surrounded by impassable mountains whose sky is obscured by an azure gas giant called Kerberos. Or is it? Is Kerberos is a god or portal to another world? Its nature is a mystery, and uncovering its secrets is sure to rock the world of Twilight to its core.

From the press release:

One year after Kali Hooper defeated the Pale Lord, Bastion Redigor lives on in the body of Jakub Freel. The mysterious entity known as the Hel’ss, meanwhile, moves closer to Twilight, welcomed as the herald of their ascension by the Final Faith. Only Kali and her friends know the deadly reality of what this will bring, but they have been declared outlaws, hunted by the Order of The Swords of Dawn.

So begins Kali’s penultimate adventure, a quest far beyond the Stormwall to the mystical Trass Kathra, the Island of the Lost. Here she will suffer the trials of the Four to discover the true nature of Twilight’s gods and her own shocking origin in the chaotic depths of the Thunderflux.
