Im taking a break from Black Library for a bit. Ive got other books piling up. Right now im reading Terry Goodkind's Stone of Tears, after that I don't know. I like to choose my books when I need them and leave my schedule open.

I'm nearly half way through Angels of Darkness. Pretty solid so far. I hadn't read through a 40k novel in quite some time before this. I kept picking ones that I ended up disliking and dropping them pretty quick.

Just finished reading "Hellforged" the most recent and 4th Novel based on the Soul Drinkers Chapter. I have to say..I was much more impressed with this novel than I was with the first Trilogy...I read the Soul Drinkers Omnibus a while back and bascially was left with.."Meh" I really don't care for a renegade chapter of mutated Astartes much.
I gave "Hellforged" a chance and I am glad I did...all I can say is...Renegade Astartes, Mechanicum/Archmagos' and Necrons...Oh My!!

I am also currently reading Gaunts Ghosts "The Founding" Omnibus, "The Inqusition War Omnibus" as well as "Heroes of The Space Marines"

"May The Emperor's Good Fortune Smile Upon You"

I have the next two, and can't wait to read them, but I have Courage and Honour, The Hunt for Voldorious, and Empire to read, so they'll have to hang on for a bit.

Currently I'm working my way through the 3rd eisenhorn book, if reading eisenhorn could ever be paired with the word work......

Just finished NEMESIS(which was awesome) and I'm now reading FEAR THE ALIEN. The salamander story is great, cant' wait to get started in Firedrake.

Next in line is the HUNT FOR VOLDORIUS.

To my drug-addled mind, the voice sounded like that of the Emperor himself, and I found myself wondering if I should have spent a bit more time in the temple, and a bit less in bars, gambling dens and bordellos, but it seemed a little late to be worrying about that now. If I had indeed arrived at the Golden Throne, I'd just have to hope its occupant was in a good mood, and try to steer the conversation on to safer ground at the earliest oppertunity.

Please, spare yourself. The first few books of that series (i.e. "The Sword That Makes You Angry") are decent...but beyond that, it degenerates into Terry Goodkind's platform for ranting against socialism and drooling over Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. It's really not worth the necessary investment of time in the long run, if you ask me.

Still, you're free to live your life as you please and read whatever books you will. Just...I did try to warn you.

As for myself? I just finished reading One Hundred Years of Solitude for school. Not sure what I'll be moving on to, just yet.
