Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach – Advance Review [Shadowhawk]

Fortune's Pawn

Shadowhawk reviews the first novel in a new series by Rachel Aaron, writing as Rachel Bach, as she tackles military space opera after her popular Eli Monpress adventure fantasy series.

“Its not often I get to use the words stunning and spectacular and superb all in the same sentence for a novel, but Fortune’s Pawn is a novel that deserves all those epithets and more. Its a fantastic tale that reminded me often of the old style of space opera, the fun-loving adventure kind that doesn’t take itself too seriously and focuses on the fun above all else.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

The Word Bearers Omnibus by Anthony Reynolds – Advanced Review [Bane of Kings]

#8 - The Word Bearers Omnibus by Anthony Reynolds (Reviewed by Bane of Kings)

Bane of Kings reviews the Word Bearers Omnibus, written by Anthony Reynolds, published by Black Library and containing the novels: Dark Apostle, Dark Disciple, Dark Creed plus the all-new short story Tormented. The Omnibus edition is released in January 2012, available for Pre-Order from Black Library’s Website now.

 “Prepare for a brutal onslaught of endless war. Action packed, fast-paced, the Word Bearers are not to be underestimated, and neither, is this collection of novels to be missed. A Page-Turner.” ~The Founding Fields

Note: Because this is a review of a trilogy, there will be some spoilers involved, however, I’ve tried to keep them to a minimum.
