I've got Desert Raiders here. It's slightly thinner than the regular books, and it wasn't that bad a read.

The Hunt for Magnus. I'm losing interest of this habit of releasing prequels of books released years ago.

Recently finished the Tyrion and Teclis trilogy. Solid but not great.

Deciding between (a re read of) Eisonhorn/Ravenor sagas, Cybernetica or Asurmen next.

Just finished first half of Night Lords omnibus, Bloodreaver is the next work in that omnibus for me. Started Lords of Mars again now that I'm pumped about the recent adeptus mechanicus models. Finished Cybernetica last night.

I interview a lot of authors on the book clubs we do on my weekly podcast Combat Phase so yesterday finished going through Rise of Nagash trilogy for our Warhammer Fantasy Book Club with author Mike Lee. On that interview Mike also talked about HH: Fallen Angels and his Crimson Fist stories, including the upcoming novel he's working on now.

My queue for BL books is ridiculous and ever-growing but the *current* order is: Lords of Mars, Gods of Mars, Ahirman: Sorcerer, Unforgiven, Titanicus, Hunt for Magnus, and Curse of the Phoenix Crown for upcoming author interviews.

Thanks for hosting this thread. It's good for inspiration and discovering new fiction.

I've just finished reading all the HH Tallarn novels.
Book one (executioner) was OK, but some of the dialgoue between characters was horrendously bad.
Book two (Ironclad) was really quite enjoyable. I liked each of the individual plot strands.
Book three (well, hardly a book...extremely short story; Witness) was so short I wonder if it should have existed at all. I'm not sure what the exact word count is, but I suspect that there are posts on this forum which are longer and more interesting than that story. Pointless.


Now I've moved onto Cybernetica. I can't say I've enjoyed the start. I'm only 20 pages in, but it's currently coming across as rather predictable and by the numbers. I hope it picks up and throws some surprises my way. If not, I will have to hunt down the author and eat his bones.

Jude finished the Word Bearer's series, and now I'm going back to the Night Lords series. Only halfway through the first book, but it's quite interesting.

The eBook I downloaded is formatted so strangely. Every couple sentences has a starts a new paragraph and like two 'enters' (spaces) between each paragraph. It kinda makes reading the book faster.

Sounds like Alpha Legion trickery to me. Beware. They are probably watching you right now.

Believe it or not, two out of three eBooks I download are formatted like this. It could also be that I download them as Mobi's and then convert them to PDF for the awesome PDF viewer on my tablet. (lets me highlight where I left off, and save bookmarks)

Also, I think it would be amazing if they were watching me. I would love to be recruited as Astartes, especially Chaos!

I too feel the pain of the shorter Tallarn series so far, even the audio dramas. I can see where you would have a sketchy start to Cybernetica. MY own opinion it's worth it and I like how it turns out. My interview with Rob Sanders on Combat Phase podcast ep 112 went up this week on iTunes where Rob talks the mechanicum 30K &40K in his books and the differ neves, maybe have a listen before you finish it? No huge spoilers. Hopefully you enjoy.

I haven't discusses Tallrn books with anyone yet who has read them all so I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.m
