Teen Titans Volume 1: It’s Our Right to Fight by Scott Lobdell – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Teen Titans - It's Our Right To Fight

Bane of Kings reviews the trade paperback containing the first seven issues of It’s Our Right To Fight, the first Teen Titans collection of DC’s New 52, written by Scott Lobdell, with art from Brett Booth. 

“An entertaining, action packed introduction to New 52′s Teen Titans. It’s Our Right to Fight is a graphic novel that is flawed, but very fun.” ~The Founding Fields

Warrior Brood by C.S. Goto – Book Review [Bellarius]


Bellarius drives headlong into the insanity which is Warrior Brood and sees just how completely a book can fail within thirty pages.

“If you want a guide on how not to do Warhammer novels, look no further.” – The Founding Fields

The Black Wind’s Whispers by Various Authors – Anthology Review [Bane of Kings]

The Black Wind's Whispers

Bane of Kings shares his thoughts on The Black Wind’s Whispers, a self-published collection of historical horror stories from authors who are all members of Black Library Bolthole, as well as a short story by CL Werner.

“An intriguing mix of horror stories that proves that the genre can be very varied indeed. Giving classic monsters new twists.” ~The Founding Fields

Cover Reveal: Black Feathers by Joseph D’Lacey


Shadowhawk brings you another cover reveal from Angry Robot Books, although this is not an exclusive, revealed earlier today at the This Is Horror blog.

Siege of Castellax by C. L. Werner – Book Review [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews the latest Space Marine Battles novel by Black Library.

“Grim, brutal, and clinical, Siege of Castellax is an excellent representation of the Iron Warriors and of Warhammer 40,000.” ~The Founding Fields

Rynn’s World by Steve Parker – Review [Lord of the Night]

I like the detail's here, the Space Marines unhelmeted showing a range of different faces and styles. A simpler cover from Jon Sullivan but still a good one.

Lord of the Night reviews the first Space Marines Battles novel, Rynn’s World by Steve Parker.

An exciting novel with well-written characters at their darkest hour, Parker does not hold back on the danger or the action.”

Angels of Darkness by Gav Thorpe – Review [Lord of the Night]

I really like this cover, it's dark but simple and it really captures the atmosphere of the Dark Angels.

Lord of the Night reviews the gripping Dark Angels novel Angels of Darkness by Gav Thorpe.

“One of the most engaging and revealing 40k novels, Angels of Darkness is a compelling story of freedom, secrets and lies, and treachery.”

Lord of the Night by Simon Spurrier – Review [Lord of the Night]

After all these years I still rate this cover alongside the NL trilogy covers. It's just so perfect for the Night Lords.

Lord of the Night reviews the Night Lords novel Lord of the Night by Simon Spurrier, yeah lots of night and lord in that sentence.

“A twistedly awesome story of revenge and fear, and about the people who have no place in the world they live in and yet continue to go on. A Black Library classic!” – The Founding Fields

Judge Dredd - 99 Code Red

Shadowhawk reviews another Judge Dredd audio drama for his Advent Reviews series. This is Day 16.

“As a first introduction to the Judge Dredd/Mega City One setting, this is utterly fantastic.” ~The Founding Fields
