Default The Unforgiven

After seeing Jurassic World in Newcastle today I took a walk down to the local Travelling Man to see if they had any pencil-line paintbrushes in. They didn't but before I left I took a moment to look at the BL books and see what they had, and surprise surprise sitting right there was a copy of The Unforgiven by Gav Thorpe, not even available on BL yet!

Grabbed it along with copies of Fall of Macharius and Curse of the Phoenix Crown (3 for 2) and will start it as soon as I finish The Dragons of Heaven by Alyc Helms. Will also review and post some thoughts here once I do.

Absolutely pleased as hell over this.

BL's marketing and scheduling are incomprehensible. Good for you, though! Please let me know if Ezekiel does anything other than talk and act as Truthsayer.

Is it the one after Master Of Sancitity ?Very interested in what will happen to Cypher since he handed himself in.
Though I hate how Gav Thrope portrays Marines or just DA in general, he makes them all look retards who have never seen a daemon or a chaos marine and know nothing of outside world. Felt like they were just teenagers in power armor. Read Ravenwing for worst examples.

No thanks. I refuse to read any Gav Thorpe writes. It is shockingly bad.
I got my hands on some of his stuff that had been converted to audio dramas and played them whilst working on the PC at home. They were so bad I got a letter from the council saying the neighbours had complained.

Hang on. WTF? cypher handed himself in? no, come on. What is he going to right next? who the 19th and 20th primarchs are? some things are sacred.

He has a reason. And it's a bloody good one.

171 pages in so far and the novel is proving quite good. Cypher's presence has really thrown things into a curveball for the Dark Angels, and some rather interesting surprises have occurred, including one that I will now reveal as it confirms something that has been hinted at for a while now; (This has no real bearing on the novel's story, it is simply something mentioned off-hand that has significance for a character from another series.)
