If you enjoy the dark side of fantasy you just hit the jack pot this book leaves out nothing just because its sensitive material. You recieve the full picture but the picture of the actual story is somewhat distored. You believe that you know whats going on but it only hints at it in the book, so you feel that you know whats happening but you truly don't know the truth because no one in the novel even knows the truth. Like the reader they know only bits and pieces. The end of the novel gives you a mental beating leaving you gasping and asking how the story will continue(but it does hint at possiblities). If you feel like a story that challenges and pleases your mind then this is the book you've been waiting for. Enjoy.

Lebbon has always challenged the reader to follow his dark imagination into less comfortable surroundings. I have to say though that Dusk really is a departure from his usual style. Lebbon invents a world beyond the kid gloves of Tolkein and the like. The first time I read Dusk I really felt swept away with the pace of the book, tearing at the pages to keep pace. On second reading I took the time to appreciate the characters and lavish setting. This really is a fantastic read and for the first time I apprecited the difference between dark fantasy and horror. I suspect that this really will place Lebbon comfortable alongside the likes of Barker in terms of daring the reader to surrender their imagination to his. Absolutely superb.... Yours, F.Wasp

The Cataclysmic War ended the reign of magic with mages fleeing for their lives. Over the next three centuries, in spite of the demise of magic as a combat tool and the thought that the Cataclysmic War was the war to end all wars, battles continue using savage mundane methods to kill or maim your adversary. --- In 2208, the Year of the Black, Kosar the Thief watches the rider in red serendipitously comes to the village Trengborne. He is stunned as the stranger begins a slaughter killing the young and anyone else offering resistance even the militia while taking blows that should have left him dead. Kosar notices one teenage boy escapes up the dark hillside. That lad Rafe Baburn saw his parents and others murdered by what had to be a demon. Evidence has surfaced that magic has been rebirthed in the young the Red Monk and his minion plan to eradicate it before the one soul possessing the skill can mature enough to use it against them. Kosar meets and teams up with A¿Meer the Shantasi warrior in a search to find and protect Rafe from the Red Monk, but first must expedite him from Hope the witch. --- This epic coming of age fantasy grips the audience from the moment the Thief fearfully observes the red-robed killing machine and never slows down as Kosar finds allies to protect the dying world¿s perhaps last hope Rafe. The exhilarating story line paints a dark gloomy Poe like atmosphere throughout especially when the adversaries take center stage. The key characters in particular the teen and his champions are unique individuals that make their realm seem even more nightmarishly real. Tim Lebbon paints the darkest DUSK that will have readers keeping the lights on until dawn breaks. --- Harriet Klausner

I assure you, Tim Lebbon knows what you have dreamed and you will find it written across the pages of DUSK. Having first sampled Lebbon¿s work in his novel ¿Desolation,¿ I was already familiar with how deftly he can move between the ethereal and the fundamentally ordinary. He finds beauty and wonder in the smallest things, and yet he is just as gifted in flinging out the expanse of the universe like a mad astronomer. I have been thrilled to experience a preview copy of DUSK and I can already envision myself and a group of friends sharing a drink and having lively discussions about all it has to offer. Anyone in that scenario who admitted they had not read DUSK would be immediately given the empathy typically offered to the homeless and impoverished, because not to have paid a visit to Lebbon¿s Noreela universe is to be truly poor in body and soul. I must say it again, Lebbon knows what is in your nightmares and he will show them all to you again. Others have described Lebbon as having a wild imagination but I fear it is much worse than we suspected. He could be mad or at the very least quite ill. How else could he have created such creatures of horror, the seen and unseen. There¿s the Red Monk, the skull ravens, the tumblers and furbats, the Nax and shades and weapons and the smell of rotwine rotting in the hot sun. There¿s Trey with the yellow eyes and the beautiful, sensual A¿Meer who likes it over a chair. There¿s Hope the Witch and Rafe Baburn, the last hope for a dying world. And there¿s more¿there¿s always more to the eye where Magic is concerned. DUSK is an epic story, but don¿t let that frighten you if you¿re not fond of them. This one will wrap your heart in chains with each successive chapter and will not let you go. You will find yourself swept up into the story of unlikely heroes and sworn enemies, of the ancient machines left over from the Cataclysmic War, of a love story in a place where primal fears reign supreme. Just as the sun is going down, reflected in fire and water, blood and smoke, all hell and all doubt, you will find that which that stands unwavering and timeless in the face of impossible odds¿and pray for the DAWN.
