Stormseer by David Annandale – Novella Review [Bane of Kings]

Stormseer

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, covers the ePremiere of David Annandale’s Warhammer 40,000 novella, Stormseer, focusing on the White Scars Chapter and their conflict in the Octavius System between Orks and Eldar , published by Black Library as part of their multi-authored Space Marine Battles series.

“David Annandale really impresses with his take on the White Scars in this short novella. It moves along quickly and is a great example of how to write Warhammer 40,000 novels – action packed, swift and entertaining. David Annandale is certainly an author to watch out for.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

angel-exterminatus

Shadowhawk reviews Graham McNeill’s latest Horus Heresy novel, wherein he tackles one of the most overlooked Primarchs and Legions in the series to date.

A decent and extremely promising novel that also misses the mark often and is ultimately let down by the high expectations created by Graham’s last full offering that I really enjoyed, A Thousand Sons.” ~The Founding Fields
