I find that interesting because not a lot is done with the Companies six-through-nine of any Chapter, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th tend to be the focuses. This could be a very interesting plot.
Grastalyx, the Daemon Prince and new Big Bad of the series, has been confirmed to have been a Luna Wolf and that will be important in both his character, motives and in parts of the story.
The Emperor's Children have been confirmed to be in the novel as well, specifically Lufarion and his warband The Incarnadine Host from Kyme's audio-drama Perfection. I really enjoyed that audio so I am looking forward to seeing Lufarion again, especially if he is still seeking perfection.
It would have gotten my interest if Kyme hadn't proven me several times his books doesn't interest me. I've only found his short in The Sabbats World
-anthology to be actually good and Perfection
worked mostly cause he borrowed much from Grahams Fulgrim
, which is good so we see connection and continuation. The story itself was interesting as well to add a detective-story within a bolter porn-audio drama. Personally I would have wanted to see more of the EC-characters alone rather than cameos in this new trilogy. Also Lufarion is the last of his warband right? Are there any other than him left?
Well the law of randomisation or something similar states that a group of monkeys in a room with a load of typewriters will eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare. In the meantime, we're stuck with what a monkey named Kyme has randomtyped on his keys between poo-flinging.
He always was crap on the WD team, and giving him a job like this has only made it worse. Him and Dunn.
Would agree here. I bought a Dunn short about the Emperors Children. It was 50% Emperors Children barely, and 50% wank feast for his Crimson Slaughter Renegade Chapter. It's like he tries to force them and DA into all of his stories.
