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.
From the back of book:
Once a loyal son of the Emperor’s Children, Fabius Bile now loathes those he once called brother. But when a former comrade requests his aid on a mission he cannot refuse, Bile is drawn once more into the sinister machinations of his former Legion. Now, accompanied by new allies and old enemies alike, Fabius Bile must travel deep into the wilds of the Eastern Fringe, in search of a world unlike any other. A world which might hold the key to his very survival. A world called Solemnace…
Questions to ponder during and after reading Fabius Bile: Clonelord:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out to you?
- The Emperor’s Children, as a legion, are deeply in denial. Does this make them sympathetic? Do you like them as a legion?
- Was Flavius Alkenex a good antagonist for Bile? Were you surprised by his comrades and methods? How did you feel about him in the end?
- Fabius Bile has many varied and interesting companions. What most surprised you this book about them? Let’s go through the “major” players:
- Fabius Bile is a complicated man, and no one understands him but his creations (BILE! … can ya dig it?). Do you feel that you better understand him? Is he a likable character? Is he “evil?”
- Let’s talk about the clone. What do you think about its existence and actions? What are the implications of its current whereabouts?
- This book ends in a literal deus ex machina. Did this surprise you? What did you think of Bile’s and <redacted>’s conversations?
