I finished Gotrek & Felix's 3rd Omnibus over the weekend, from the Black Library.

I gotta say, I really enjoy the fact that Nathan Long has taken over. William King's stories have been very entertaining thus far, but I find his writing style very very bland. Nathan Long took a series that already had a bland-ish premise (basically Gotrek runs around, and kills the biggest and baddest things in the world in order to redeem some dishonor in his past), and breathed some fresh life into it. I have to say I'm quite excited for the next books, whenever I get to them.

I'm starting Fallen Angels by Mike Lee, book 11 in the Horus Heresy series. It covers the fall of the Dark Angels on Caliban during the Heresy. I'm sure it'll be fantastic as I've yet to be disappointed by any of the series thus far.


  1. Fallen Angels is great. Everybody harps on Bill King but I've always loved his books. Good to hear the new guy is doing a good job, I'll have to pick them up.

  2. I really shouldn't be so harsh on him, honestly. His Space Wolf series is actually a fun and interesting set of stories, and doesn't have the same writing style as his Gotrek books.

    I just really got tired of the writing after 8 or so books, and reading the exact same phrasing over and over! Nathan Long has done a good job though, in my opinion.

    So far Fallen Angels has me excited- I've not read anything by Mike Lee aside from the Darkblade novels... and I don't know how much of those were actually his. It's moving along quite well so far though!
