Now that we’ve had a slight break in new releases, we were finally able to dive into this Armageddon by Aaron Dembski-Bowden reprint in all its Limited Edition glory. This is a reprint of a Space Marine Battles series collection that includes the novel Helsreach and the novella Blood and Fire. It’s definitely one of ADB’s early works, so it’s a bit rough around the edges. However, we were surprised to learn that he had been setting up the dilemma with the Celestial Lions ever since the early aughts.
One of us really enjoyed the book and one of us was rather meh. Both of us had a fun discussion.
We know we should tackle a new book next, but since we’re going on vacation next week, we decided to pick a fun beach read. We couldn’t think of a better beach read book than Ciaphas Cain, so The Traitor’s Hand by Sandy Mitchell it is!
Armageddon by Aaron Dembski-Bowden vidcast is, of course, on YouTube, and the podcast is on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and virtually anywhere else you can find podcasts! If you haven’t read the book yet, better do that before you listen! If you like us, please subscribe or even leave a review!
Each episode will be in a traditional book club format. We will read one mutually agreed upon book to discuss at the club meeting aka podcast. Sometimes we will read brand new books, sometimes we will read old books, but there will be a method to our madness as to why.
