Returning to the ongoing Horus Heresy series, Bellarius gives his analysis on Graham McNeill’s Vengeful Spirit.

“Dozens of potentially great ideas and characters, none of which can be fully realised thanks to the overstuffed plot.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Betrayer by Aaron Dembski-Bowden – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Betrayer

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, catches up on Horus Heresy novels that he’s missed out on, turning his attention to Betrayer, one of the most recent additions by Aaron Dembski-Bowden to the multi-author series, published by Black Library.

“A strong novel that delivers a great look into the World Eaters but is not without its flaws. But even when Betrayer may not be perfect, it does indeed remain one of the stronger novels in the Horus Heresy, and Aaron Dembski-Bowden proves once again why he should be considered among the top tier of Black Library’s authors.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Ahriman: Exile by John French – Book Review [Bellarius]

Ahriman's never looked better. I don't know who did this cover-art but my hat goes off to them.

After much delay, Bellarius gives his thoughts on John French’s tale of the infamous sorcerer in Ahriman: Exile.

“A decent showing of Ahriman taking his first steps on the path of damnation, but not one without a few pitfalls.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

“A exceptionally flawed tale which still manages to have the Tau Empire win for all the wrong reasons.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields
