Titan Books have announced they’ll be publishing FABLE: BLOOD OF HEROES in paperback and ebook format on 4th August 2015.
Heroes are thought to be gone from the land. So why have the bards begun singing of them once more? For Fable newcomers and dedicated fans
alike, Blood of Heroes delves into a nevee?before-glimpsed era, telling the tale of a band of adventurers who come together to defend a kingdom in desperate need.
When someone tries to burn down the Cock and Bard inn in the city of Brightlodge, four Heroes find themselves hastily thrown together, chasing outlaws through sewers, storming a riverboat full of smugglers, and placing their trust in a most unlikely ally. As the beginnings of a deadly plot are revealed, it becomes clear that Heroes have truly arrived — and so have villains.
What connects the recent events in Brightlodge to rumors about a malicious ghost and a spate of unsolved eaths in the nearby mining town of Grayrock? Unless Albion’s bravest Heroes can find the answer, the dawn of a new age could be extinguished before it even begins.
This brand?new story is an original work of epic adventure and daring flights of fancy. Taking place within the chronology of Fable™ Legends, Fable:
Blood of Heroes is an early story in the Fable™ universe. Set before the action of the original game trilogy this is a world of magic, folklore and
mythology, a simpler and more dangerous time before meaningful technological advancement, Fable: Blood of Heroes offers a perfect jumping on point for new fans, as well as those well-versed in the ways of Albion.
