Comics Round-up 15.08.2013

Justice League Dark Volume 2

Shadowhawk brings to you the second comics round-up for August.

11 Neferata

Shadowhawk reviews the first book in the Blood of Nagash trilogy for the Time of Legends books set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles setting.

“With Neferata, Josh Reynolds brings the kind of excitement that was lacking in Black Library’s previous premier Vampires trilogy from Mike Lee and tells a focused story about one of my favourite characters from across the Warhammer Fantasy lore.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Hot-Blooded-Book-Cover1

Shadowhawk reviews the second book in the Jessica McClain urban fantasy series.

“Not as strong as the first book, but still pretty darn good, Amanda Carlson does a great job of increasing the stakes and ramping up events to eleven. An absolutely thrilling ride with a werewolf flavour.” ~The Founding Fields

ARDouble01

Shadowhawk reviews two of Angry Robot’s recent releases, one the sequel to a (late) 2012 sterling debut, and the other a brand new novel from an author who has mostly written short fiction to date.

On She Returns From War: “I thought it would be tough for Lee Collins to build on the success of his debut, but with this book he has proved me wrong.

On Between Two Thorns: “Two words I would use to describe the book – charming and fairy tale. This is a fantastic urban fantasy novel, carrying on the publisher’s trend in putting out some great genre fiction.”
