One extra thing. I took a look at the interior character art, and it's pretty damn nice. For those who want to know the interior art depicts;

Finished Rebirth a little bit ago.

Quite a good book, admittedly it falls short of being great because it acts as the first book in a series, setting up all the plots, establishing characters and the like, and because all the revelations come later in the book. But there's some damn good stuff here, especially the reveal of what the Incarnadine Host is up to and what a certain Salamander has been doing in his less than glorious sabbatical from Nocturne.

Also Gralastyx is a very... human Daemon Prince. I quite liked his motives, they felt unique for something like him.

The story Three Hanged Men was really good, creepy and had some awesome lines. Spoilers below for people who won't be reading it;



Three Hanged Men can, in a way, be considered like an extra bonus chapter to Rebirth, one that is cool to read but not necessary to the actual plot of the book. I quite enjoyed it, especially the final line Zantho gives to Socred.

Seems alright. Good short review. What other highlights were cool or interesting?

Well since this is only book one of the new trilogy, I can't say if it's better than the first. And the prose is the same I guess, it's been a while since I read the first trilogy.

Here are your spoilers; (Split up per plot-line)



Those are the three plots in the book. They'll be continued in book two, which according to the To be Continued is titled Infernus.

Thanks Lord, but this

Plus all the book seems exactly like the bolter porn of the previous trilogy. At least I'm now glad, that i didn't bought it

How exactly is that beating a dead horse?? We've seen that particular object a grand total of once. It's been mentioned two more times since then and only very briefly, and only as a tangent on a conversation. This is the first time that it's an object of importance in a story.
