Ditto, Haley's books were very enjoyable so far.

Just noticed that Valedor and the Last Days of Ector is already available as ebooks. DLed them both.

I want to read all these. I just don't see how they justify $11.99 for a Enovella. Yeah, I'll get it, but that pisses me off (novella's/short story's piss me off) that it costs as much for an actual full length book.

From what nid fluff I've read there won't be a feast. It'll be a lot of hyperbole about the tyranids consuming the galaxy before a band of 3 or 4 eldar guardians destroy two entire hive fleets. GW hates tyranids :angry:

Sounds really good, not the extinction of the Chapter but another story featuring them.

Yeah, I finished The Last Days of Ector. I found it a pretty good read, but perhaps the teaser blurb was a little too sensationalist and gave the wrong impression. But he suceeds in giving the Crimson Castellans their own identity, and the novella is clearly a prequel that should be read before Valedor.

Couldn't agree more! They don't hesitate to charge more if a book is longer than usual (Vengeful Spirit being one example), so it SHOULD follow that a shorter work costs less than usual. Sorry for being off topic but the above post by Loki demanded a response. :)

*Edit* I should point out that I phoned BL the other day to ask why Vengeful Spirit costs a fiver extra. The guy on the other end said it was down to the book being longer than usual. I asked if that was why Fear to Tread was a pound more expensive and was told "yes". He even mentioned that the hardback version of A Thousand Sons would cost more than the norm.

I don't mind paying slightly higher prices for longer books/more content, but it does seem unfair when shorter works aren't afforded the same logic. (Again, apologies for being off topic).

Found Valedor a pretty engaging read that explores many facets of the eldar and their craftworlds, Guy Haley definitely have a good hand on the eldar as well.
And the book felt better noticeably proofread than recent releases, though I did spot a single mixup of Biel Tan and Iyanden.

One thing that amused me.
