Adapted from the Philippine National Book Award-winning novel, Janus Silang and the Creature of Tabon takes the reader on a journey of discovery as Janus learns the truth about the supernatural realm of mythical creatures that surround us and how he and his family is connected to this magical world.

Monsters live in the darkest corners of our dreams, existing only as nightmares, but sometimes they find a way out. When dreams and the waking world collide how can we know what is real? Janus Silang and the Creature of Tabon tells the chilling tale of a boy's courageous actions amidst a shadowy world and his struggle to overcome the nightmares in his waking life.

Janus is like most teenagers--he argues with his parents, wishes he had a girlfriend, and is obsessed with video games, especially one where the players fight against monsters from Philippine folklore. It's all very ordinary, until one day when everything falls apart.

During an online tournament at a local internet cafe, all the players fall dead, except for Janus. The horror deepens as the deaths multiply across the country and Janus is contacted by a stranger, a survivor of the tournaments like himself, who asks to help solve the mystery. Along the way, Janus discovers a hidden truth in the game he has been playing and its connection with a nightmarish creature from the ancient caves of Tabon that threatens to destroy everything he holds dear.

Absolutely Fantastic

This was my first time ordering from SciFier but it definitely won't be my last. When it comes to buying books online the packaging needs to be good, SciFier were great they used bubble wrap to make sure they arrived perfect. Amazing range of books that majority are lower priced than most book retailers. Wonderful service, I'll definitely be recommending to everyone. Thank you.

Great delivery to EU, no issues with customs. Very good packaging. A nice selection of manga and, so far, the best prices I could find :)
