Renegades of the Dark Millennium - 6/10

Some good tales in there but far too short for the money!

The Shape of the Hunt - 7.5/10



Arjak Rockfist: Anvil of Fenris - 8/10

The most surprising thing about it was that Ben Counter actually wrote something that at no point made me want to take a spoon and gouge my eyes out whilst reading it. Very pleasantly surprised by it.

Deathwatch - 9.5/10

Never been this pleasantly surprised by a book. I was expecting it to be complete shovel ware, but it turned out to be one of the best Warhammer 40,000 novels I have read. It felt like one of the bravest books BL has released in a long time due to all the disgusting and horrific things people had to go through in it. It actually felt genuinely grim dark at times, something which most WH40K books are not. Another pleasing thing about it was that with the exception of the brief prologue, not a single bolt round was fired in the first 300 pages of the book in combat! Can it actually be possible that we had a book that concentrated on the story instead of action for once? Hell yes.

The only thing I did not care much for was the set up for the overall storyline for future books that the author was building towards, which for me was somewhat anti-climatic in the last chapter or two, but other than that I loved every second of reading this book and finished it in one reading session. I hope Steve Parker gets to continue the story in future novels and I am eagerly anticipating whatever he choses to write next.

He's currently working on Deathwatch II. I'm looking forward to it very much as well.

Did you also get a real Alien/Aliens vibe from the Genestealer brood??
