I review the Civil War graphic novel, which contains work by Mark Millar, Steve McNiven, Dexter Vines and Morry Hollowell. Published by Marvel comics, this is a 2006-2007 crossover that includes elements of the New Avengers, Spiderman, Fantastic Four and the X-Men.

Some great artwork and thrilling action scenes, Civil War is a great starting point for anyone who’s looking to read comics after seeing the Avengers movie despite a few flaws that it has.” ~The Founding Fields

I write a review of The House of Rumour, an interesting and unusual novel published by Sceptre, and written by Jake Arnott. This novel was released on July 5 2012.

“An interesting novel that takes a while to understand what’s happening, but is full of good, creative ideas and as far as I’m aware, is pretty original.” ~The Founding Fields

I write a book review of The Emperor’s Gift by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, his first Grey Knight novel, published by Black Library and set in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe.


“Dembski-Bowden continues to impress. A fantastic storyline that sheds light on the First War for Armageddon and its aftermath. His best non-Chaos Space Marine novel yet.” ~The Founding Fields

I review the standalone graphic novel The Long Halloween, set in Gotham City and published by DC Comics. This graphic novel was written by Jeph Leob, Illustrated by Tim Sale and coloured by Gregory Wright, this is a Batman comic that you will not want to miss. The Long Halloween was first released as a collection on November 1 1999, and provides a huge inspiration for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight movie.


“An epic tale of tragic events, fantastic artwork and a great storyline makes The Long Halloween arguably the best Batman graphic novel that I’ve read so far.” ~The Founding Fields

I review the first novel in the Bryant and May series by Christopher Fowler, published by Bantam Books. It’s a crime novel that was first released in 1994, and is entitled Full Dark House.

“An enjoyable crime novel, with an interesting setting of London during World War Two, Full Dark House is a novel that historical crime fans will find engaging, if flawed.” ~The Founding Fields

I review the eleventh novel in Black Library’s multi-author Space Marine Battles series, Wrath of Iron, written by Chris Wraight and set in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe. The latest novel in the series features the Iron Hands Chapter and details the Purging of Contqual.

“If you’re looking for a reason why you shouldn’t cross the Iron Hands Chapter, Wrath of Iron provides that reason. Action-packed, bloody, gory and page-turning, Chris Wraight shows that he is making himself a Black Library author to watch out for.” ~The Founding Fields

I review the novelization of Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie: The Dark Knight Rises, adapted by Greg Cox and published by Titan Books.

“An epic story, some amazing set-pieces and moves at a spectacularly fast pace, the novel may not be as good as the film but it’s something that shouldn’t be overlooked.” ~The Founding Fields

I write a review of Brandon Sanderson’s epic fantasy debut novel, Elantris, with the edition used for this review published by Gollancz in the UK.

“An enthralling, captivating novel, with wonderful world building and an action-packed plot, Elantris is a novel that fantasy fans should love, despite the flaws.” ~The Founding Fields

Well, it's been a while since I posted a link to this thread. Here's my thoughts (along with fellow TFF reviewer Bellarius) on Vulkan Lives, the latest Horus Heresy novel by Nick Kyme: http://thefoundingfields.com/2013/07...ingsbellarius/
