“Child of Trass Kathra... welcome home!”
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.
Kali Hooper is dead, and this is the beginning of the end...
“Unashamedly pulp, reminding me of the work of such genre
greats as Michael Moorcock and Edgar Rice Burroughs.”

About the Series
Twilight of Kerberos was Abaddon’s fifth shared world, launching with Matthew Sprange’s Shadow Mage in February 2008. Rocked by war and religious schism, Twilight is a fantasy world like no other, a land girt by impassable mountains and impenetrable storms, dimly lit by a distant sun and dominated by great Kerberos, an azure gas giant that fills the sky...
Or is it? To some, Kerberos is a god. To others, 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 – is sure to rock the world of Twilight to its core.
The series has featured four authors, following different central characters in an overarching plot: Matthew Sprange’s Lucius Kane, shadow mage and thief; Mike Wild’s Kali Hooper, adventuress and archaeologist; Jonathan Oliver’s Silus Morlader, a fisherman with a terrible heritage; and David McIntee’s one-off Gabriella DeZantez, holy warrior of the Final Faith. The Trials of Trass Kathra and the upcoming ninth book, The Wrath of Kerberos, weave the different stories together towards a thrilling conclusion in the tenth book, Children of the Pantheon, due out in 2012.
