Picking out another audio drama, Bellarius judges the strengths and weaknesses of The Kauyon by Andy Smillie.

Space Marine Battles: Malodrax by Ben Counter – Book Review [Bane of Kings]

Malodrax

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, covers Ben Counter’s latest entry in the multi-authored Space Marine Battles series, looking at the Imperial Fists Chapter and covering First Captain Lysander’s struggles with the Iron Warriors on Malodrax. This book is published by Black Library and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

“A fast paced, fun and enjoyable read – Malodrax may not be the best Space Marine Battles Novel but neither is it the worst, with Counter proving just how well he can write the forces of Chaos. Unfortunatley, this comes at a price – and his Imperial Fists don’t leave as much an impression as they should.”  ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
