Ahriman: Sorceror, 8/10. This could turn into one of the best series BL have. As a SW fanboy, Loved the insight into the 13th Company.

Garro: Shield of Lies - 7/10

It was an okay audio drama with decent acting and sounds effects, although the big "reveal" was painfully obvious from the moment you realize what the plot is going to revolve around. Also I hope they won't drag the story of Nathaniel Garro too much longer in these audio dramas and instead bring it to a satisfying conclusion in a proper novel. Garro is my second favourite character from the HH series, but the stories with him are starting to get a bit too repetitive and predictable for my taste...

Talon of horus 10/10 characters are deep and fleshed out, story is gripping and the whole time reading it I am thinking "yeah, I can get behind Abaddon."

Imperfect: 8/10

Chirurgeon: 8/10

I'm not sure I can give much of a higher rating to novellas that are both less than 50 pages. Both by Nick Kyme. Now, the mark is less reflective of the prose and more of what the novellas did to me.

See, I felt that Fulgrim was the zenith of the Emperor's Children's back story. Even the corrupted characters had complex motivations and ideal, etc. Reflection Crack'd and the retcon therein ruined that a bit for me and Angel Exerminatus really made me start to hate them because Fulgrim and everyone else became caricatures with no depth.

Then we come to Imperfect. Nick Kyme does a really good job of portraying Fulgrim as, prideful, mercurial and slightly erratic, but still interesting which is something I haven't felt about Fulgrim since 'Fulgrim'. So that makes it worth the 1.99 imo.

Chirurgeon is even more interesting. I've never really 'got' the character of Fabius Bile, why he is basically a mad doctor, why he cares so much about unlocking the secrets of how to make and improve Astartes, and why he always looks like an old man when most other Space Marines are essentially ageless. Chirurgeon actually managed to answer all of those points and get me invested in the character I previously hadn't cared about. Again, worth the 1.99 imo.

My contribution to the Renegades saga. Check it out

My growing IIIrd legion stuff:

17th Millenial (Homebrew Fluff) - "Children of the Emperor, death to his foes!" (Project Log)

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:

Siege of Castellax: 7/10

Decent story, but I found myself wandering off many times during the story. The Orks are fun to read about, but the overall story was probably my least favorite in a while, despite the nice insight into Iron Warriors.

The Siege of Castellax-7/10 (I believe I am the 3rd person to agree to this ratting)

I had a number of problems with the book, as someone who spends allot of time reading and re-reading the fluff on the Iron Warriors, the deviations from 'Normal' were very apparent... But Spoiler time.

False Gods:- 8/10

Endeavour of Will (novella):- 7/10

Edit/Extra: As I have been spending alot of time reading.

First and Only - (Gaunts Ghosts 1):- 8/10 {Shows its 'age' in some ways, but a great book. Glad I have started on the Series again}
