In what is likely the shortest gap between main novel releases in the entire Horus Heresy ten year series history, this Saturday will see the release of Book 36: The Path of Heaven by Chris Wraight, and the following Saturday will see the release of Book 37: The Silent War by James Swallow.

I absolutely can't wait. The Silent War means more Garro, more Malcador, more Severian and all the other Knights-Errant (Rubio, Varren, Loken and Ison, etc).

I've read more misses from Swallow than hits, so I'm much more excited about Wraight's book. That being said, more full length novels is never a bad thing. Well... usually not a bad thing.

I have a few of them, but thankfully I gave up buying the audio dramas when I thought they might get released in print and I'm not a fan of e books at all, passionate hatred comes fairly close to my dislike of them... So bring on the printed garro!

No. How does it end? Actually, don't tell me, I want it to be a surprise.
You would be kind of stupid to not know if you've really read any good books post heresy... say The Beast Arises books, any Chaos book... oh and the CSM Codex.

It matters little. The thirteenth Black Crusade is the end for the Imperium's falsehoods anyways. They finally best the bastards.

So I just finished reading Child of Night by John French. Yuck. OK, I will put my hands up and admit that I read it in two parts and for the first part I was very tired, so possibly wasn't following it as well as I normally would. That aside, this short story came across as a mess. I totally lost interest in how it kept flicking between memories and time frames and I found myself skim reading it out of boredom. Then suddenly Sevatar appeared. I became quite angry. I love Sevatar. Had I missed anything important about Sevatar? I flicked back a few pages...no. Nothing interesting. Just a jumbled mess of an idea. The entire story can be ignored bar 2 pages involving Sevatar which essentially sum up anything interesting the story had to offer.

But, that said, the rest of the Silent War is rather enjoyable.

Did anyone else find that particular story to be lackluster, or was it purely down to my tiredness?
