New Titles Announced from the Black Library

Overnight, the Black Library released a list of future titles on their “coming soon” page.  Lots of great titles here for you all to see. Although none of them have covers yet (at least on the website) the titles and descriptions are there. I’ve got the scoop here for you below.

Fist off lets start off with a book i’ve been thoroughly anticipating since i reviewed it’s predecessor.

BLOODFORGED by Nathan Long

Unable to adapt to Lahmian society, Ulrika seeks her own way, striking out to the Chaos-besieged city of Praag to seek old friends and glory in battle. On her arrival, she finds a devastated but defiant people and the invaders repelled. But the Ruinous Powers can take many forms, and now a more insidious threat is rising from within – a Slaaneshi cult that seeks to claim dominion in Praag. Shunned by her Lahmian sisters, decried by the humans she seeks to protect, Ulrika treads a lonely path as she tries to find the root of this destructive plot. Caught between the will of the vampires and the insane designs of Chaos sorcerers and cultists, Ulrika must call upon all of her cunning and savagery if she is to triumph… (from Black Library website)

 I’ll postulate more on my theories of this description later. I’m intrigued to see that she has been shunned by her Lahmian sisters…interesting!  Next up,

BATTLE OF THE FANG by Chris Wraight

It is M32, a thousand years after the Horus Heresy. The Scouring is over and the Imperium at the height of its post-Crusade power. When Magnus the Red is tracked down to Gangava Prime, the Space Wolves hasten to engage the daemon primarch. Even as Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm closes on his ancient enemy, the Fang on the Space Wolves home world is besieged by a massive force of Thousand Sons. A desperate battle ensues as the skeleton forces of Wolf Lord Asvald Greylock attempt to hold back the attacking hosts before the last of his meagre defences gives in. Though a single Scout ship survives to summon Great Wolf Harek Ironhelm back to Fenris, none of the defenders truly realise the full scale the horror that awaits them, nor what the Battle for the Fang will cost them all. (from Black Library website)

 This is the latest announced installment to the Space Marine Battles series and one that i have been aticipating for a while now.  Seems the Space Pups will be getting a lot of love this time around.  I’m looking forward to this one. Next…

But they face an unknown alien, an implacable foe that has never been encountered – the fearless, soulless necrons.

The druchii army, led by Morathi and Issyk Kul, battles the gathered might of the high elves in a vast, destructive conflict. But Morathi has even grander plans than this – to destroy the vortex that holds Ulthuan together, plunging the island into a nightmare domain of Chaos. The noble elves must overcome their dark cousins, or else face the end of their race. (from BL)
