I love the Omnibus - I'd really suggest picking that up.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

Many people have issues with the trilogy, fluff wise, but if you're not persnickety, I think you'll enjoy it. I know I did.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

The Grey Knights trilogy, which obviously doesn't include the rather excellent Emperor's Gift by ADB, seemed to lose steam with each successive book IMO. That's not to say they were bad, but the first book was the high point and by the time you get to the third one it's basically the Justicar from the first two books being captured by some Khorn worshipers and made to fight in a bloodsport arena. I rather liked the sort of mystery element to the first book a lot more. The third one was kind of bolter porn without the bolters.

Very enjoyable read and I thought the 3rd book was the best!

The first 2 books is pretty good, just the last one is not up to par for reasons already stated.
