Picking up shortly after the conclusion to Attack of the Necron, this is all about the situation for the gang getting worse before it can get better. Despite the threat of the necron having been dealt with, the sense of danger only increases as Talen stumbles upon cave-dwelling monsters and the children are (temporarily) forced to figure things out without the comforting presence of Fleapit the Jokaero. The rapid pace of events keeps the plot moving nicely while allowing for a satisfying develop ...more

Disapointing after how much I liked the first... however the damn ending has left me wanting to get the next in the series.

The action ramps up and there is more defined characterization as the young adventurers contend with a genestealer Infestation at the same time as trying to survive a winter on an alien planet. I like the relationships forming and it is a good cliffhanger. I look forward to the next novel.

No-one can accuse the Warped Galaxies series of Warhammer Adventures of being slow-paced as Cavan Scott continues to put his young heroes through their paces. After narrowly surviving a planet-wide genocide and barely outwitting a Necron hunter, “Claws of the Genestealer” pits them against the icy elements and the unrelenting danger of the Tyranid Genestealers. The Genestealers are an iconic part of Warhammer 40,000 lore, most recognisable from the standalone board game Space Hulk. Reminiscent o ...more

The last volume of the Warped Galaxies series saw our band of misfit heroes come together in the destruction of a Necron invasion, only to end up lost and alone on a distant, frozen world. It's here that the story continues, with the three children and their Jokaero companion trying desperately to survive in these frozen wastelands. With dwindling food reserves, power running out, and Flea-Pit slowly succumbing to the cold, things look more desperate than ever.

Zelia Lor, Talen, Mekki and Fleapit have survived the attacks of the Necron hunter on the unnamed ice planet their escape pod crashed onto. But with supplies running low and the power for their heating and distress beacon is nearly out. If they are not rescued soon then the cold will get them. Or maybe what's on the planet with them will...

Another fun kid friendly slice of 40K action. It's toned down and simplified a little but not too much, it doesn't pander. Though how long 3 kids and a jokaro

A nice continuation of the first novel, I liked it a little less, but I can't really say it had any major issues. Guess the first one was just more impressive to me cause I did not know what to expect. Heroes go through character development in a proper pace. The author found a perfect balance of staying true to the lore, but not going overboard with the spooks. I love that each part has a little dictionary at the end, explaining the words and terms a young reader is most likely unfamiliar with. ...more

This is the second book in the Warped Galaxies series. This was another fast paced, action packed, entertaining, easy to read book. However I didn't find this installment as engrossing and engaging as the first in the series. I didn't enjoy the ending especially given the cliff hanger which was my main issue with the ending. It felt a pit contrite and like it wasn't necessary, but forced to build desire to read the next book in the series. However I will be giving the next book in the series a r ...more

Fun middle grade adventure in an intriguing sci-fi world.

A pretty entertaining book. It's the standard tale of young friends in a dire situation but set in the 40k universe. I can see this as a good introduction to the warhammer setting. ...more

This one was really cool. These are definitely for kids, but the story is still fun. I could see using it as a basis for an RPG. I look forward to the next one.
