Description

A world consumed by war . . .

An ancient evil resurrected . . .

A millennia old bargain comes due . . .



When two blades clash, the third will fall, and the fate of all will be jeopardized. To save Lozaria, the failures of the past must be atoned for by a new generation of heroes. The time has come for mortals to cast off sight and, in doing so, truly come to see . . .




Victory is never absolute

Seven centuries ago, the forces of order won the Illyriite War on the plains of Har'muth. Darmatus and Rabban Aurelian slew their elder brother, Sarcon, the despotic architect of the conflict, then sacrificed themselves to banish the cataclysmic vortex opened with his dying breath. The first advent of the Oblivion Well was thwarted. Even without their vanished gods, the seven races of Lozaria proved themselves capable of safeguarding their world.


Or so the story goes.


The year is now 697 A.B.H. (After the Battle of Har'muth). Though war itself remains much the same, the weapons with which it is waged have evolved. Airships bearing powerful cannons ply the skies, reducing the influence of mages and their spells. Long range communication has brought far flung regions of Lozaria closer than ever before. At the center of this technological revolution are the three Terran states of Darmatia, Rabban, and Sarconia, who have fought a near ceaseless campaign of 700 years in an attempt to best each other. The roots of their enmity lie buried beneath the wasteland of Har'muth, a place all three nations consider best forgotten.


However, an ancient power sealed within Har'muth has not forgotten them, and the descendants of those who fought on that field must now take a stand to rectify the mistakes of the past.

Review quote

"The combination of magic, fantasy, and technology was executed wonderfully." - Petrik Leo, Novel Notions

"History and flashback sequences seamlessly combine with action, magic, and sci-fi battle scenes, all of it very cinematic . . . Don't even get me started on that mix of magic and technology, fantasy and sci-fi - absolutely brilliant." - Magic Book Corner



"Russell has developed a fascinating literary realm in Divinity's Twilight that weaves together legend, magic, and seemingly unending conflict into a fast paced adventure. In a read that proves to be action packed from cover to cover, we find vivid characters vying for positions of power as their personalities clash even during the most peaceful of times. When these young soldiers are then thrust into life or death situations we watch as their unique quirks either exacerbate the most talented into inaction or inspire the confidence lacking squib to flourish.



Divinity's Twilight is a delightfully ambitious epic fantasy that sprints right out of the gate and maintains an unrelenting pace throughout. The reader will find themselves mindlessly flipping pages as the stakes grow ever steeper with each subsequent chapter." - The Critiquing Chemist


"Newcomer Russell's new high fantasy series launch is well written with a definite steampunk vibe and sword-and-sorcery appeal. Readers of alternate-world fantasy will find this a satisfying read and a good start for a new author who's soon to have a loyal following." - Library Journal Review by Russell Miller


"Fans of epic fantasy who look for world-building tales will find Divinity's Twilight: Rebirth a compelling read that begins midway in an already-extensive history, but carries its story with a powerful surge of description, action, and intrigue." - Midwest Book Review

"From how pacifists become soldiers to cycles of violence sparked by unusual circumstances, Divinity's Twilight: Rebirth is a true epic. Its complex world and its influences will leave readers intrigued and engaged in mysteries and miracles that leave the door open for further adventures.

"Divinity's Twilight: Rebirth by Christopher Russell is the first book in what promises to be a breathtaking epic fantasy series... Top tier world-building coupled with well-crafted history and lore made Rebirth an enthralling read, with events and characters clicking into place at a breakneck pace... Classic fantasy archetypes are thrown to the wind while tropes are shattered and fused anew to create characters that reek of familiarity but brim with mystery, intrigue, and uncertainty." -Reader's Favorite
