Don't get me wrong I love 500 page novels but if this keeps up with such rich story telling month after month then BL are on to a winner of a series!

I can't wait for the next one 'The Emperor Expects' by Gav Thorpe to see how things progress on both fronts!
Have to agree, I just hope the different writers can maintain the feel of each character, the first two books have done just that.

Oh why why why am I such an idiot

I decided to buy the Beast Arsises series. For once hardback books were not stupidly over priced and it looked like the series would be good.... however

I didnt look at the inside cover and see that Gav Thorpe has written book 3.

How in the name of Zues's Butthole am I supposed to read a book by this guy and not have a brain hemorrhage. You do all know that this is how Orks were created right? All this Waaaaaaargh stuff is the universes attempt to rid itself of works by Gav Thorpe.

Take a breather, its not that bad. Mostly a filler book tho, but amping up the political intrigue to eleven. I expect things to pick up again from book 4.

Good luck on that one. I fully expect to see lines like

And the sun came up. And it was Big. And round. And Orange. And made me feel all warm.

Because thats the quality of writting you get from Gav Thorpe.

I can't. I'm in full GavRage mode. It's like going to the dentist for root canal work, it takes a certain amount of mental pre preperation.
