Description
Kosar the thief senses that Rafe Baburn is no ordinary boy. After witnessing a madman plunder Rafe's village and murder his parents, Kosar knows the boy needs his help. And now, for a reason he cannot fathom, others are seeking the boy's destruction.
Uncertain where to begin, Kosar turns to A'Meer, an ex-lover and Shantasi warrior whose people, unbeknownst to him, have been chosen to safeguard magic's return. A'Meer knows instantly that it is Rafe who bears this miracle of magic. Now Kosar and a band of unexpected allies embark on a battle to protect one special boy. For dark forces are closing in including the Mages, who have been plotting their own triumphant return.

Praise For Dusk

"Well-drawn characters and a literate way with the grisly distinguish this first of a new fantasy series from Stoker-winner Lebbon.... any of the well-handled action scenes are from the bad guys' point-of-view, an unusual perspective that helps round out the author's fantasy world."—Publishers Weekly

"Tim Lebbon displays the sort of cool irony and uncanny mood-making that drive the best Twilight Zone stories."—New York Times Book Review

“This is fantasy for grown-ups….An excellent book.”—Paul Kearney
