With the release of Fable III looming closer, fans of the series might be interested in Fable: The Balverine Order, a novel written by novelist and comic book artist Peter David, and set within the Fable universe.
The description of the book reads:
The days of magic and adventure are fading away, giving way to the age of industry and science. As the aged last Hero sits upon the throne of Albion, two friends-the privileged Thomas and his loyal servant, John- set out for the East in search of a legendary beast: the vicious, rarely-seen balverine. But their desire for adventure may be their ultimate undoing-because their quarry has just found them...
To sweeten the deal, each copy of The Balverine Order ships with a download code for a unique Fable III weapon. Whether or not the weapon somehow ties The Balverine Order to the Fable III storyline-wise is unknown at this point, but it's possible considering how Fable II's actions affect Fable III.
According to Amazon.com, Fable: The Balverine Order will release on October 5 for $9.99 USD. Fable III is still scheduled for an October 26 release.
