Every two weeks we read a new book in the WH40k universe and discuss it on our podcast. We invite you to read along with us and join in on our conversation via comments, Twitter, email, or vox cast.
It’s the holidays! To combat juggling family members, travel, presents, dinners, and everything else the holidays bring, Keri and I will be taking a break from an organized reading. We’re going to take the next two weeks to catch up on books we’ve been wanting to read, but haven’t quite gotten around to. If you’d like to read along, feel free to join in, otherwise, be sure to join us in the new year for Lords of Silence by Chris Wraight. Keri is thu-rilled for more buboes and pustules.
What Jen’s Reading:
It’s all Josh, all the time apparently, over here, as I catch up on the things Keri is not interested in. Namely Necromunda, and horror.
Kal Jerico by Josh Reynolds
I’ve never been a big on Necromunda or Kal Jerico. To be honest, in what I’ve seen, Kal’s always felt like a relic of the past to me. But I trust Josh Reynolds implicitly, and the description makes it sound like something I’d enjoy. Plus something about the special edition really grabbed my attention. So, I read.
Dark Harvest by Josh Reynolds
Horror? Josh Reynolds? Do I need to explain anything else here? Oh, wait, it’s Warhammer Fantasy so maybe I do need to explain. I’m willing to give an AoS story a shot because it combines two elements I like and trust. I may regret my decision…
What Keri’s Reading:
I too shall be reading things Jen isn’t interested in, namely Blood Angels.
Mephiston: Blood of Sanguinius by Darius Hinks
I’ve never read a thing by Darius Hinks, but Mephiston fascinates me, and he has since James Swallow’s Blood Angels Omnibus. It’s about Mephiston unraveling the mystery of how he is able to resist the Black Rage, which he may be able to take to the rest of his brothers. Remember when Guy Haley mentioned in Dante that the Primaris Blood Angels didn’t suffer from the Black Rage, only for the codex to make that not true? Perhaps this is how it will become true. Or not. Who knows with Games Workshop.This is the first in a Mephiston trilogy I know Jen will have zero interest reading.
Sons of the Hydra by Rob Sanders
For whatever reason, I have this affinity for the secretive Legions of Warhammer 40k. I thought about attempting to read one of the many Dark Angels books I have that I know Jen won’t care about, but my thoughts always go back to the Alpha Legion, a Legion I know in my heart of hearts is loyal. Sons of the Hydra follows one of the Alpha Legion’s warbands in their quest to redeem the entire Legion for the Imperium. It’s a pretty tall order, and I’m sure they won’t be successful. Count me in.
