“For my life”, she whispered, “and for hope.” In an all-concealing darkness she destroyed Tewarsum. She didn’t see any people, only buildings, which she burned to the ground. They were lifeless objects that were easy to attack. The people died in their sleep. Lilith didn’t reflect on it, because that was the only way she could survive.

Lilith - Bound in Darkness

Inferno at her breath. War under her wings. With two men whispering mayhem in her ear, which way will she turn the bloody tide?

Lilith has only ever lived with anger and destruction. The sole dragon shifter known to humankind, she despises her life as an instrument of terror at the hands of a prophetic sorcerer. Finally fleeing years of abuse, she’s distraught when she’s captured for stealing food and forced to answer to a bitter king for her crimes.

Her former abductor Kasimirh believes fervently in his righteous calling. And though he’s lost his dragon, the sorcerer’s relentless quest to convert the heathens must go on unopposed. And if the king does not yield to his army, he’s prepared to sacrifice all the royal subjects like lambs to the slaughter.

Desperate to finally break her bond to the determined prophet, Lilith vows to stand against her merciless master and stop his savage quest with equally relentless brutality.

Can she extinguish his tyrannical reign before the realm falls to his bloodshed?

This bundle of ebooks contains Bound in Darkness, Broken in Twilight and Born in Light. If you like rich characters, stunning surprises, and moral ambiguities, then you’ll love Kim ten Tusscher’s soaring tale.

When I started the Lilith trilogy, I took a very different approach from writing City of Illusions. I wanted to write a story about someone with a horrible background. Not as a victim, but as a perpetrator. Would you be able to overcome such a past and turn your life into something better?

This character became Lilith, a woman who can change into a dragon. She is one of the last dragon shape shifters in the world, and with her on your side, you’ll have an enormous advantage in the battle. After all, a fire breathing dragon is a powerful weapon.

I never anticipated the huge impact Lilith would make. She conquered a place in the hearts of so many readers. And also in mine. That first chapter in which she flees across the mountains, looking for a better future, was also my first step into a completely new world. A world in which, more than ten years later, there is still more to discover.

As soon as I finished writing the trilogy, I began thinking about a book trailer. And as with everything I do: when you take on something, you have to give it all you got. This book trailer had to have the vibe of an epic film trailer.

I contacted Paul Haans, a director I already met. We wrote the script together, arranged locations, actors, costumes, and everything else involved in filming a mini-movie. Chris Dane, whom I knew from Born of Hope, did the incredible voice-over.
