Eroldren reviews Darius Hinks’ debut novel that is part of the Empire Army series and Morningstar 2011 awarded (David Gemmell Legend Awards) Warrior Priest.

Star Wars: Slave Ship by K.W. Jeter – Review [Lord of the Night]

Not a cover that will win any awards, but it's a good image of Boba Fett and Bossk.

Lord of the Night reviews the enjoyable second book in the Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy, Slave Ship by K.W. Jeter.

“Though not as exciting or tense as The Mandalorian Armor, Slave Ship does a good job of advancing the plot and revealing much more about the enigmatic Boba Fett.” - The Founding Fields

Random House Double – Kept and The Bloodfire Quest [Shadowhawk]


Shadowhawk reviews two of the latest novels from Random House/Del Rey – the second Coveted novel Kept by Shawntelle Madison and the second Dark Legacy of Shannara novel The Bloodfire Quest by Terry Brooks.

On Kept: “A thoroughly engaging and flawed novel that failed on a very interesting premise.” ~The Founding Fields

On The Bloodfire Quest: “Mostly a rehash of The Elfstones of Shannara, the new novel has occasional flashes of brilliance but little else.” ~The Founding Fields

Kingdom Come Absolute Edition by Mark Waid and Alex Ross – Comics Review [Bellarius]

Star Wars: The Mandalorian Armor by K.W. Jeter – Review [Lord of the Night]

I love covers that depict the characters, really adds to the image in your head. And of course Fett's helmet multiplys the awesome by a factor of 100.

Lord of the Night reviews the thrilling start to the Star Wars: The Bounty Hunter Wars trilogy, The Mandalorian Armor by K.W. Jeter.

“This is Star Wars at it’s best. No lightsabres, no force and no Death Stars. Just the simple men trying to make their way in the universe, the Bounty Hunters.” – The Founding Fields

Upcoming: Star Wars – Into The Void by Tim Lebbon (Del Rey)

Redemption Corps by Rob Sanders – Book Review [Eroldren]

Redemption Corps - JS Cover

Eroldren reviews Rob Sanders’ debut novel from Black Library, Redemption Corps, an Imperial Guard novel.

“Sidestepping away from the Guardsman norm Rob Sanders instead tackles their elite: Storm Troopers. However, certain aspects of the novel muddle down part of the reading experience.” – The Founding Fields
