Know No Fear by Dan Abnett – Advanced Review [EJ Davies]


EJ Davies takes on the most recent, and one of the most eagerly anticipated, entries into the Horus Heresy saga.  The stage is set.  The First Heretic gave us the background.  Aurelian gave us the why.  Know No Fear gives us the how.  The Battle of Calth begins.

“A startling, gritty, visceral, punishing ride into the battle for Calth.  It’s simply astounding.  A must read.” ~ The Founding Fields.

Ghostmaker by Dan Abnett – Book Review by EJ Davies



EJ Davies tackles the second Gaunt’s Ghost novel, and the second in the Founding cycle; as Dan Abnett’s first forays into the Sabbat Worlds crusade see the light of day.

“With the potential to be little more than an anthology, Dan Abnett proves not only his talent for writing, but also world building, as we explore more of the Ghosts and Ghosts’ background in a wonderfully crafted book” ~ The Founding Fields.
