LE Black Legion just got delivered by a mailman. I look forward to reading it. Will look fine beside The Talon of Horus on the shelf.

I see Black Library still have 800 left of the Black Legion.

I don't think people people are biting like they used to. When it was only the very odd LE people jumped on them no matter what, but with every other release getting one these days, people are a bit more selective about what they pay that much cash for.

I would want to pay cash for it, but it is so expensive and I prefer the softback books. A real bummer about another exclusive short as well.

Been a fairly long time since the last LE afaik, black library is thankfully getting much less crazy with them than they used to be.
I bought it because I have the first one as LE.

There have been limited eds every month for the whole of 2017! I know I have them all! But yes I agree there are too many. Too much of a good thing isn't good. It's made worse by the Primarchs series. If they weren't part of the mix I think the amount of them would be ok.

In the progress of reading Black Legion, its quite engaging. Though I feel it have less of the thrill of discovery of the first book. But one interesting tidbit; The Eternal Crusader is named as a Gloriana class ship, not just a mere battlebarge.

Edit: Finished it and the exclusive story. Good reads, but i think the talon of Horus is the superior novel with its juicy bits of revelations.

Just had an email blast from Black Library. Under 800 left. Definitely not sold remotely near the first book. I hazard that most isnt wanting it due to missing out on the first one. Leaving me wondering if the first one was gobbled up by price gougers and scalpers.

I read this book. It was good. Kinda a shame my interest in BL has degenerated from genuinely loving the IP to reading one series every 3-4 years but it is what it is. An even bigger shame to see this section so dead. RIP

Are Lupercalios and Maeleum the same demon world? The evidence stacks up but the two names are very novel specific. Threw me off a little

Unusual opinion alert: I really liked Daravek. He was the perfect foil for Abaddon on a thematic level. Dying to Khayon in the bowels of the Vengeful Spirit was a shame, but after all this guy was a pebble beside the road for Abaddon in the long term so it checks out

I've heard whispers in the warp of the series ending at a trilogy which feels like Night Lords 2.0 for those who followed it back in the day. There's a reason Void Stalker is my least favourite ADB novel despite being perhaps one of the best (Blood Reaver is my all-time favourite in terms of sheer enjoyment bizarrely)
