The Twilight War

After The Erevis Cale Trilogy, the story of Cale and his companions continues with the three books of The Twilight War.


Shadowbred

ShadowbredBook 1 of The Twilight War.

The Lady has spoken to me.

It has already begun.

Shadows move out of the shrinking desert, south to the rich and arrogant cities of Sembia.

“Be brave, little man,” says the shadowman, and the boy thinks his voice is surprisingly soft. “Stay with your mother. This will be over soon.”

The shadows swallow him and he is gone.

On the edge of a war that will change the face of Faerûn, the world will find that not all shadows serve Shade.

The Beezer Review

[Shadowbred] starts out with a prologue that hooked me in the same way the new Indiana Jones trailer has people revved up for the movie....a fun read with suspense written all over
Bibliophile Stalker

Kemp has planted seeds for a terrific trilogy with Shadowbred. Additionally, the well handled narrative shifts and theme of faith seen throughout the course of the novel entertains as well as cause one to ponder their own faith.

Shadowstorm

ShadowstormBook 2 of The Twilight War.

The invasion of the arch-wizards is on!

The archwizards of Shade Enclave have come out of the desert with a message of peace, and an act of war. Split by petty disputes and causeless feuds, the merchant realm of Sembia is wide open for invasion, and with no shortage of Sembians more than happy to sell out to the Shadovar, can only one man—even if that man is Erevis Cale—do anything to stop it?

Paul Kemp’s Shadowstorm doesn’t even pause for breath...an immensely enjoyable middle installment with lots of adventure and an ending that hurls The Twilight War recklessly forward.

Shadowstorm reveals why Paul S. Kemp’s name is synonymous with the Forgotten Realms. His characters have motivations that any reader can relate to and have shown that shared world fiction is just as poignant and valuable as the latest New York Times Bestseller. His exploration of the anti-hero is something our culture is deeply fascinated with, and Kemp does it well. Erevis Cale is the dark knight of our dreams, powerful and mysterious.
Grasping for the Wind

As any good writer knows, war, even in the overwhelming magnitude of its tragedy and triumph, must be personal...Paul S. Kemp's ability to do this with ease and grace marks him as one of the best fantasy authors writing today, and marks “Shadowstorm”, the second book of his Twilight War trilogy, as an adventure not to be missed.

Shadowrealm

ShadowrealmBook 3 of The Twilight War.

One of the Forgotten Realms world's most compelling villains—the Archwizards of Shade—have come down from their flying city with their sights set on the merchant realm of Sembia. They come in the guise of allies, but have invasion and empire as their ultimate aim.

The fate of Sembia may be sealed, but Erevis Cale still has a shocking destiny that will end in his destruction—if he's lucky. This trilogy brings about major changes to the Forgotten Realms setting.

Shadowrealm is a fitting conclusion to one of the best fantasy series I have ever read. It is a pleasant change to invest not in one or two characters, but in all of them—a true rarity in the genre..."
The Fantasy Book Critic
.

As this novel concludes the tale of a war between light and shadow, great battles of magic are to be expected. On that count, Kemp most certainly delivers with an epic battle that comprises a major portion of the novel...Kemp [throws] in his trademark passages of consternation, struggles, and debates—both internal within the individual characters and external between characters, into these battle scenes.
SFFworld.com

author Paul S. Kemp expertly takes readers along a well-paced, well-written narrative full of ups and downs...a fitting conclusion to one of the best fantasy series I have ever read. It is a pleasant change to invest not in one or two characters, but in all of them—a true rarity in the genre, and quite a risk as well due to the mortality rate of fantasy characters!
