Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz – Review [Lord of the Night]

Definitely a cover that grabs your attention, it did mine.

Lord of the Night reviews the stunning urban fantasy debut novel Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz.

“A novel that is 50% Breaking Bad and 50% Dresden Files, and 100% awesome! Yet at no point does it feel derivative or anything less than a unique take on magic and wizards. A must-read for any fans of urban fantasy or anyone whose looking for a story that is both exciting and entertaining on every page.” – Lord of the Night @ The Founding Fields

Wolfbreed by S.A. Swann – Review [Lord of the Night]

A very nicely designed cover, and the image of Lilly is a great addition as it helps you picture her.

Lord of the Night reviews the mesmerizing historical fantasy novel Wolfbreed by S.A. Swann.

“A highly enjoyable novel that captivates the reader with a gripping and dark story and emotionally engaging characters that pull the reader into their world. For those who like historical fantasy this is a must-read!” – The Founding Fields

Skulduggery Pleasant: Last Stand of Dead Men by Derek Landy – Review [Lord of the Night]

A haunting cover, and one that immediately proves the tagline: NO ONE IS SAFE.

Lord of the Night reviews the penultimate book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series, Last Stand of Dead Men by Derek Landy.

“A non-stop barrage of plot twists, strong and surprising character development and powerfully written battle and war scenes make this the finest book in the series, at least until book nine is released. Landy outdoes himself once again!” – The Founding Fields

Corax: Soulforge by Gav Thorpe – Limited Edition Review [Lord of the Night]

A fantastic cover, Corax has never looked better. And the matte-black underneath is just gorgeous.

Lord of the Night reviews the latest of Black Library’s Limited Edition Novellas range, the Horus Heresy novella Corax: Soulforge by Gav Thorpe.

“An enjoyable return for Corax and the Raven Guard, and a very good stand-alone adventure for both.” – The Founding Fields

Headtaker by David Guymer – Review [Lord of the Night]

An excellent cover, though it's a pity that Queek's signature weapon Dwarf-Gouger isn't more visible.

Lord of the Night reviews the entertaining and quite funny Warhammer Heroes novel Headtaker by new author David Guymer.

“An engaging and bloody story rife with madness, betrayal and characters that defy the mould of their species to surprise the reader.” – The Founding Fields

Blood of Asaheim by Chris Wraight – Review [Lord of the Night]

Brother Ingvar looks good here, though a snarling wolf helm would make him look infinitely cooler.

Lord of the Night reviews the first of the new Space Wolves novels by Chris Wraight, Blood of Asaheim.

“A thrilling return to the Wolves of Fenris, in that excellent mix of humour and strength that Wraight did so well in Battle of the Fang, and the start of a gripping new story.” – The Founding Fields

The Horus Heresy: The Flight of the Eisenstein by James Swallow – Dual Review [Bane of Kings & Lord of the Night]

Quite a nice cover, but it's a shame that the real highlight of it can't be seen.

Bane of Kings and Lord of the Night revisit book four in the awesome Horus Heresy series, The Flight of the Eisenstein, by James Swallow, published by Black Library.

“A gripping and tense novel that really ups the ante for the entire Horus Heresy series and expands on one of the most important, yet overshadowed, pieces of lore.” – The Founding Fields

“An awesome addition to the Horus Heresy series, Flight of the Eisenstein is a very strong read from veteran Blood Angels author James Swallow .” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Galaxy in Flames by Ben Counter – Dual Review [Bane of Kings & Lord of the Night]


Lord of the Night and Bane of Kings continue their re-reviews of the Horus Heresy Saga, returning this time to the Siege of Isstvann III, the final act of the opening trilogy, written by Ben Counter and published by Black Library.

Galaxy in Flames is the Horus Heresy version of an over-the-top action movie, with an action-packed, page-turning read but little in the development of characters. However, Counter manages to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the last installment of the initial trilogy.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“An enjoyable third novel that while not meeting the same standard as its two predecessors, is still a good book with plenty of incredible moments.” ~Lord of the Night, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: False Gods by Graham McNeill – Dual Review [Bane of Kings & Lord of the Night]

The Luna Wolves in all their glory... while it lasts.

Bane of Kings and Lord of the Night continue their revisitation of the Horus Heresy series with Graham McNeill’s first entry, False Gods, the second book in the New York Times Bestselling, Multi-Author epic published by Black Library. You can find their first review of Horus Rising here.

“A weak second installment in the Horus Heresy series by Graham McNeill and not his finest moment, but is essential reading if you want to learn why Horus fell.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“A classic novel that is one of the most important and most tragic parts of the Horus Heresy. This is a novel that is not to be missed!” – Lord of the Night – The Founding Fields.

Comics Round-up 15.03.2013


Shadowhawk, Bane of Kings, Bellarius and Lord of the Night welcome you to the second comics round-up for March.

“Unusually, its all graphic novels this month for the most part and once again, the experience has been across the spectrum. The shining lights this month have been DC’s Huntress and Green lantern.” ~Shadowhawk

The Death of the Family is one of the greatest Batman tales ever written, and Paul Cornell’s Wolverine gets off to a solid start.” ~Bane of Kings

“Probably the only comic in which you want to see more people and less fire breathing lizards.” ~Bellarius

Hirano’s latest work is everything we’ve come to associate him with. Immensely gory violence, over-the-top in a good way characters and absurdly hilarious moments that abruptly switch back to unrelenting carnage. What fan of his would have it any other way??” ~Lord of the Night
