Damnation of Pythos - Pointless/10

What in the fuck did I read. What does this have to do with the Horus Heresy? Why is a HH novel wasted to be a tie in to a shitty SMB novel? How does one make godzilla versus greater daemons boring? How many theosaurus were harmed in the writing of this book? I was listening to the audiobook and all the time thought that something of relevance has to happen soon, and then it just ended with nothing having happened. What the fuck was the point of this book.

Dark Imperium, 8/10.

Full of new lore regarding Primaris marines, the current state of the Imperium, Guilliman resenting the Emperor, Calgar resenting Guilliman, along with a few cameos of famous UMs both past and present.

Vaults of Terra: The Carrion Throne, 9/10. Really loved this book. It's nice to get back into the intrigues of the Inquisition, and I really loved Wraight's depiction of the squalor and struggles of life on Terra for it's lowly inhabitants.

Ghosts Speak Not & Patience (HH shorts), 7/10. Nice to finally see some of Garro's companions from the Eisenstein get some love, and Amendera Kendel makes a good fledgling Inquisitor. Garro makes a pretty badass appearance in Patience, as well.

Horusian Wars: Ressurection, 7/10. Very good story, but I found it hard to relate to Inquisitor Covenant. You see him from the perspective of his henchmen, without actually getting to know him, and while keeping him a mysterious, strong, silent type was probably the intention, all it did was make him almost incidental to the events happening to those henchmen. I will look forward to the sequel though. Maybe Eisenhorn will make a cameo somewhere along the line.

Wordbearers Omnibus - 7/10

A solid read of an underrated legion to be honest, but it can be a little ham-fisted and rushed at some points. The sub stories range from fascinating (such as a Captured PDF becoming a Chaos Cultist) to lacklustre (Marine fights bad people and doesn't afraid of anything). The characters range from quite interesting (The Coryphas terminator captain who hates his new boss) to Saturday morning cartoon evil (Rarrr I'm Burias the angry possessed raarrr). If you like Chaos this is a must read and Reynolds does a good job of keeping to source material and interesting fight scenes.


Liber Chaotica - 9/10

Now out of date and redundant in wake of Age of Sigmar, this book is none-the-less a fantastic look into the Chaos forces of the Old World. Written from the perspective of an anthropologist / researcher who explores the various tribes and powers / history of chaos, it's filled with great artwork, interesting commentaries and provides an "unlike-anything I've seen elsewhere" look into the Lore. The biggest and most frustrating part of the book though is the font used as the hand-writing of the 'Author' on various subjects and letters. Even if you can read cursive, you'll find yourself struggling on some of the words because the text is just - well difficult to read.

A real gem if you can get your hands on a copy for cheap.

Helsreach; 8/10
Blood and Fire; 5/10

Helsreach is a great book imo - gives some fantastic insight into templars and their relations within the chapter, with the guard and other astartes, as well as grimaldus' coming of age, so to speak.
The sequal novella, not so much, apart from the 'story' he tells of how he earned the skull helm.

Not Black Library, but the Emperor would approve. Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion.
I'll give it 8/10 for being an excellent read that is filled with good humour, well constructed points and examples. There is no god, only the beauty of nature. If Lorgar had read a copy then perhaps the Heresy would have been averted.

Shroud of Night - 8/10

Really enjoyed this one. I would not say it a mind blowing, but was a nice look into the post-Gathering Storm era and I liked the way they handled a lot of the new toys.

Couple of reads lately -


Siege of Castellax 6.5/10
It was OK. Unusual as it was chaos vs orks, and Iron warriors showing their callous disregard towards the humans. It just didn't seem like a great story, and where there was bolterporn, it was pretty poorly written.
