Default Black Library Reviews by Lord of the Night @ Talk Wargaming

Decided that since I am putting more reviews out on Talk Wargaming I would post links to them here, hopefully this will get both them and the website itself some more page views. I will update this thread every time that I put out a new review, with a link.

Here are some of the reviews I have posted recently, along with some advance reviews;

Yarrick: Imperial Creed by David Annandale;

Fully agreed on all reviews - except for Yarrick: Imperial Creed by David Annandale

This novel is far worse then exceptional and admirable Yarrick: Chains of Golgotha. Writing style is absolutely different. Then i read Imperial Creed i had no emotions at all. The main protagonists doesn't interested me at all - they are cartoonish. Well - the only book that could be worse - Death of Antagonis.

So i would give Yarrick: Imperial Creed 2/10

When is Archaon: Everchosen coming out because I looked but couldn't find it on BL's site, Amazon or Bookdepository (where I usually buy from).

Follow me and I shall give you victory or glorious martyrdom! For the Emperor!

According to the preview that's on BL, Archaon: Everchosen should be out in April's releases.

Could you tell me if your reviews are spoiler free, I avoid reviews like the plague normally as I have been caught out a few times with spoilers that have ruined the book for me. So now rather than risk a spoiler I just don't read any.

Good review, Lord of the Night- thank you

Blood Oath by Phil Kelly - my thoughts exactly, fully agree on your review. And Aun'Va is a dick. As a player-reader. i personally hate tau - but i really want for future - to see how tau will break the ethereal shackles, and Shadowsun personally kill Aun'Va.
Another thought, through - WS in my opinion described badly - they are shown as too overzealous. If Kor'sarro was this holeric all the time - he would be dead by now. Also Raven Guards are shown as usual marines - and not a specialists they are famous for.

Broken Sword by Guy Haley - fully agree with your review.

Black Leviathan by Ben Counter - same, fully agree with your review, seems we have same tastes

Haven't read the last one - but could you answer a simple question please


who was that?
