About The Event

Heroes. Horrors. Religious fervour. An unforgettable adventure.

Set against the collapse of ancient lands manipulated by powerful Houses, god-like Oracles and forgotten magic, Dusklight Falling is a dark fantasy epic that will hold you in its grasp long after the final page.

In the ancient land of Solumbrya, necromancer Vimnir Delcryth is raising a strega-army - a clan of undead blood-creatures that have been suppressed for generations by the sun and its worshippers.T yel Branson, a blacksmith's son, and Alyse Elsteme, a mixed-blood elf, are tasked by separate parties with conflicting agendas to put a stop to Vimnir.Joining a disparate group of knights, luminaries and assassins, all with differing motivations and flaws, Tyel and Alyse develop their individual capabilities and form a close bond with each other. But as Vimnir and his army gradually claim the north, those fighting him are soon forced to give up more than they bargained for.

Our event space is wheelchair accessible via a stair lift. Please contact with any additional access requirements and/or questions.

"A thrilling fantasy story full of horrific beasts, and honourable heroes … a world worthy of readers to adventure in.” - Steven "Bajo" O'Donnell (Twitch / ABC TV)

 “Dusklight Falling, Patch Kolan’s assured literary debut, is a pulpy delight, brimming with striking imagery, engaging characters and spectacular set pieces. It immerses you completely like a detail rich RPG but with a surprisingly robust sense of emotional connection and pathos. Frankly, it’s a little bit obnoxious that any first time author’s novel is this good but there you have it.” - Anthony O’Connor (Straya, Emma After)

 “A strong debut from a bold new voice in Australian fantasy.” - Christian D. Read (Lark Case Files, Nil-Pray)
