Having finshed Deliverance Lost I have now started Know No Fear by Black Library’s master of the battle epic Dan Abnett. The Battle of Calth where the Word Bearers turn on the Ultramarines as part of the Warmaster’s plan to keep the largest of the loyalist legions from Terra and the Emperor. I am about 180 pages in and the action has just started in true catastrophic Abnett style.
Having finished the second part of Part Three of A Song of Fire and Ice I have now turned my attention to Deliverance Lost, the 19th installment of The Horus Heresy series set in the Warhammer 40K universe in published by Black Library. The story picks up from the audio book Ravens Flight and tells the story of the Raven Guard legion of Astartes post Istvaan. so far 100 pages in the going is somewhat slow but great insights into the Heresy storyline itself. Review will be up when I’m done.
At the moment nothing as I have read everything I have! I am awaiting two books on the Pacific Theatre of war. Frank’s classic on the Battleof Guadalcanal and Hell to Pay on the last years in the Pacific and Operation Olympic, the invasion of Japan. I am also a massive fan of the Black Library books. Novels set in the Warhammer setting, be it 40K or Fantasy Battles. I am collecting all the Horus Heresy series and I recommend them. I have neither the skill nor the patience to paint the Warhammer figures but the literature I lap up eagerly. I much prefer the 40K setting but Malus Blackblade and Gotrek and Felix share the shelves with Space Marines, the Imperial Guard and the servants of Chaos. I hope to get my hands on the limited edition novella Aurelian in the next couple of days and the next installment of the Horus Heresy due out in November. M0st of my library is taken up with WW2 books which I will list in this blog once I have unpacked it from the boxes it currently resides in!
