Well this was an interesting reading.
I don't know why but I last year was the year I read less Black Library books. I love the setting, so I really don't know. Maybe this year will change. There are a lot of books I want to read, Dark Disciple, 13th Legion, Skarsnik, Headtaker, Zombieslayer, Valkia, Wulfrik, The Red Duke and three hundred more.

Ouch. A couple of stand-out characters, but I kept getting so bored I'd get them mixed up, so I guess not really THAT stand-out. This could have been interesting if a little better organized. As it is it just feels like a running battle and a bunch of really disparate characters that never gel into their own identities.
