New Release: Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart

We quietly snuck this one out in ebook last week, but with the print version finally showing up at Amazon (and other retailers to follow soon – ask for it at your local bookstore!), we would like to formally welcome to the world Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart!

PathofNightCoverMichael Devlin is the first of a new breed. The way things are going, he may also be the last.

Being infected with an unknown disease is bad. Waking up on a slab in a morgue wearing nothing but a toe-tag is worse, even if it comes with a strange array of new abilities.

Medical student Michael Devlin is in trouble. With his flatmates murdered and an international cabal of legendary man-monsters on his trail, Devlin’s got nowhere to hide. His only allies are a hot-tempered Sydney cop and a mysterious monster-hunter who may be setting Devlin up for the kill. If he’s going to survive, Devlin will have to embrace his new powers and confront his hunters. But can he hold onto his humanity when he walks the Path of Night?

Path of Night is the first of the Night Beast series – we anticipate book 2 will see release in mid-2014.

The first reviews are already starting to come in, with this lovely gem on Amazon:

…action driven, laced with humor…I am hoping that there will be a sequel. –Roger Ross

Coming Soon: Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 9.50.34 AMWe’re in the final layout/proofing stage of FableCroft’s first original novel release, Path of Night by Dirk Flinthart. This is a very exciting time for us at FableCroft, and we can’t wait to share this book with you! Dirk Flinthart is a favourite author of ours (you might know him from his prodigious short story output, as seen in Epilogue, After the Rain and Worlds Next Door, and his work in the world of New Ceres from Twelfth Planet Press, among many other things!) and it has been a great experience to have him as our first novel author. Path of Night is the first of the Night Beast series, and I guarantee you’ll be wanting more after this!
