bobss Helsreach is good. Presents a wealth of perspectives, some interesting, some hilarious, some well-developed, while getting across the scale of conflict - something few books working with the IP can achieve.

What negative things? Those two are generally seen as some of the better BL books out there...

In fact, I actually can't decide which one of these I'd vote for in this poll...

Whoever said negative things about those two doesn't know what their talking about. Read them soon.

jasonpittman I've only read a few as I've been put off by the negative feedback they seem to produce but from what I have read

Battle of the Fang - Hands down the best one I have read
Flesh of Cretacia - Really enjoyed this one
The Purging of Kadillius - Despite what others say I thought this was pretty good
Architect of Fate - Really liked this but some stories were better than others

I have Legion of the Damned and Helsreach at home but haven't read them yet due to the negative things I have read about them.

Hachiko Without a doubt, Legion of the Damned. Great writing, clever wordplay and symbolism in the title and throughout. Both the Excoriators and the LotD make for engaging reading.

Sequere_me_in_Tenebras Opinion is always subjective.

The battles, strategies, and even the scenes that actually reminded me that Grimaldus was once human, are well done. The Reclusiarch's character has the perfect amount of depth development. Yet in various parts the narration becomes very long-winded. Fans like 'fluff' - which I'm not adverse to either.

Lord of Ruin Legion of the damned was the one that i could not put down, not just for the engrossing story but the book was loaded with so much suspense it was a real treat to read.

Phoebus I'll second that, Lord of the Night!

It was the Black Templars, and what the hell? Bolter-porn? Helsreach was so far away from that the distance is measured in light-years.
