Void Stalker by Aaron-Dembski Bowden Review [EJ Davies]


EJ Davies takes a look at the almost released Void Stalker, the third novel in the Night Lords series penned by firm fan favourite Aaron Dembski-Bowden.

Eye of Vengeance by Graham McNeill – Audio Drama Advance Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews Graham McNeill’s first Ultramarines audio drama, in which he tackles the experienced veteran Scout-Sergeant Torias Telion, a living legend of the chapter.

#4 - The Gildar Rift by Sarah Cawkwell (reviewed by Bane of Kings)

EJ Davies, in his desperate bid to catch up with the phenomenal back catalogue from Black Library, turned his attentions to book 7 in the Space Marine Battles series of novels, and bids welcome to the inaugural novel by Black Library newcomer Sarah Cawkwell and the first novelisation of the little known Silver Skulls Space Marine chapter and their mission to keep the threat of Chaos from engulfing the Gildar Rift.

“A slow start but a powerful second half which turns this novel into a wonderful, visceral ride through The Gildar Rift.” ~ The Founding Fields
