This pleases me.

Allow me to wax lyrical for a sec, behind this convenient spoiler tag.

Some good points

Also I have a question. Who is your favourite character in Soul Hunter?, and what is your favourite part in the novel?. - The Kabal of Shattered Souls Project Log - Check out Talk Wargaming for reviews by Lord of the Night.

I've really gotta say, Black Library continues to amaze me. Soul Hunter seemed very... grown up, I guess? Don't get me wrong, BL releases in general tend to be awesomely entertaining (if not amazing works of literature...), but SH was just that little bit more, and that seems to be a bit of a trend too (Horus Rising, Legion and A Thousand Sons all gave me the same feeling...).

Thanks for sticking some new awesome into Black Library's spine A.D-B. Its fantasic to see such great new talent supporting the 40k Mythos - the calibre of the current author line up is truly inspiring.

Reading this just made my day. I grin like a child on Christmas Eve now. I truly hope you don't get bored. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Sorry about the threadomancy but i do have something to add!

Just finished Soul Hunter starting Blood Reaver in anticipation of Void stalker coming out.

What i really enjoyed about the book was the conflict between what the legion was like and what it is now.

Here we have a LEGION that has broken apart since the death of their Primarch, struggling to survive and carry on their never ending war with the imperium. The Legion nature of the night lords is drifting away while there slow fall to the ruinous powers keeps picking up pace. I liked the war but i thought the ruin of the VIII Legion by Chaos powers and Talo's struggle from saving the legion (or at least the 10th company) from just degrading into just another Renegade warband was very interesting!

truly an epic book, I enjoyed it!
