Also, Is there just the one book so far? Or have they published any of the others?

We actually had a member who reviewed the first book and quite clearly didnt like it. Some of the things he said were pretty good (like the fact that the characters smile a bit to much and to often.) Sadly, a member of the staff who got to talk to ADB removed that review with a little to much gusto.

Overall I like the first book, thought the second was alright, and didn't care so much for the third.


Other books to look out for: Storm of Iron by Graham McNeill and Lord of the Night by Simon Spurier. The first is an Iron Warriors book, who's main character Honsou goes on to be a major antagonist in the later Ultramarine novels. The second is the first Night Lord novel black library produced, and its main character is actually mentioned a few times in ADB's series.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

This is what I meant about mixed reviews. It seems a couple of others on the site where I was looking felt the exact same way, about all three.

I never looked at it as three seperate books, thus never had a problem with any of the instalments. Loved the whole thing.

Well the first one is turning out to be pretty good so far! I'm anxious to get through it all.

Either Chaos stories are so much different than others or ABD just write completely different from others.

The chaos pow does tend to be a lot more interesting than the loyalist one.

I'm not sure if this was answered already, but what do you guys think about the Dark Apostle book? I think there are two more in the cycle, but that's the only one I have.

I think Dark Apostle by Anthony Reynolds is a good book, and yes it is the first in a series. The other two books are Dark Disciple and Dark Creed. Overall I think the trilogy holds up a bit better than the Night Lords trilogy.

I know some have a bit of an issue with certain things in Dark Apostle, namely that the Word Bearers were able to take down a titan in the manner they did. But those same people seem to give the Night Lords a pass when it came to how they took down a titan in their own series (between the two the Word Bearers seems more feasible.)
