Read Night Lords Night Lords #1 3

Ir primarch Guided by the visions of the prophet Talos a warband from this sinister Legion struggles to survive in a constant war against the forces of the Imperium But when they come into conflict. It's interesting that fans of Games WorkshopBlack Library's Warhammer 40000 universe tend to align behind the two sides in the “Horus Heresy” the great galactic civil war that set up the status uo of the universe So you have fans of the Emperor of Mankind and his loyalist Space Marines and forces and you have fans who root for the Space Marines who turned traitor and aligned with the forces of Chaos Both sides have noble and ugly ualities based on your perspective but I tend to identify and root for the Loyalist Imperium of Man forces I tend to see them as heroic and the Chaos forces as petty and brutalSo when it comes to my 40K reading I've tended to stick with novels that focus on Loyalist Space Marines and humans aligned with forces like the Imperial Guard and the Inuisition However I do remain a fan of crime fiction a genre that I think provides a nuanced version of morality and humanity by showing the best people at their worst and the worst people at their best On top of that I always found the warriors of the Night Lords Space Marines Legion to be very cool looking and kind of fascinating Essentially they're a warrior culture that was born when their founder the godlike Primarch known as Conrad Kurze used his power and cunning to violently strike back at the criminal gangs that had taken control of the night shrouded world known as Nostromo So essentially imagine if someone with the physical power of Hercules took up the Punisher's lethal approach to crime fighting and used Batman's tactics of spreading fear and cunning subterfuge That's the ideas they were founded on but many of the Legion's recruits were men with a love of violence So some could even be described as the Joker if he used Batman's methodsSo intrigued by those ideas I looked into giving the fiction of that particular Traitor Legion a chance “Night Lords The Omnibus” by Aaron Dembski Bowden which contains his novel trilogy “Soul Hunter” “Blood Reaver” and “Void Stalker” as well as three short stories featuring the members of the Tenth Company war band These stories appeared to be widely loved by a variety of readers so I picked up and read “Night Lords The Omnibus” to see if it lived up to the hype surrounding it I'm happy to report that it does Dembski Bowden's stories are fantastic and deserved to be mentioned in the same company as Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn stories which are some of the best Black Library stories ever IMO and they made me a fan of the 40K settingThe reason why “Night Lords The Omnibus” is so good is the fantastic job Dembski Bowden does with his cast of characters It's comparable to great character work in TV series like “The Shield” or movies like Rob Zombie's “The Devil's Rejects” where you're given these deplorable violent individuals and you suddenly find yourself rooting for them in spite of the awful acts they commit Dembski Bowden does not let you forget the awfulness the Night Lords are capable of in fact there are several powerful moments where he sort of kicks the chair out from under you and reminds you these guys are killers and vicious torturers but he also shows the nobility they're capable of The Night Lords are also often the underdogs against powerful and arguably even twisted forces in several stories So it's very easy to root for them as they devise and enact cunning and daring plans to escape trick or take down much tougher enemiesThe chief character of the stories in “Night Lords The Omnibus” is Talos Valcoran a Space Marine who was given the moniker “Soul Hunter” by his Primarch a nickname he despises He is also known as the Great Prophet of the Night Lords because of the often crippling prophetic visions he receives What make Talos especially interesting to me though is that ultimately he's a tragic figure When we first meet him he's a very noble individual trying to stay above the moral and supernatural corruption that plagues the Night Lords in the aftermath of the Horus Heresy a war that he and his fellow Legionaries committed to fighting thousands of years ago Now millennia later they remain committed to fighting what seems like an unwinnable war against the forces of the Imperium of Man because if they give up what kind of worth would their several thousand years of existence haveSurrounding Talos are the eually flawed and fascinating members of his combat suad First Claw What I love about these guys is that they don't really like each other but they would and do kill to protect each other They're a very dysfunctional band of brothers So they're fun and easy to root for and when their personal demons lead them into conflict against each other it makes for some powerful and haunting scenesOver the course of “Night Lords The Omnibus'” three novels and three short stories Dembski Bowden has the members of First Suad interact with and battle an eclectic cast of allies adversaries and some characters who are both Some of the ones I found especially intriguing were the mutated and monstrous members of the Night Lords Raptor division the two human slaves Talos employs and the members of the alien race known as the Eldar Personally I had written the Eldar off as characters that didn't really resonate with me but in one of the novels of t“Night Lords The Omnibus” there's an especially fascinating Eldar antagonist who tests the mettle of First ClawWhat makes Dembski Bowden's character work even resonant haunting and powerful is that the choices his characters make have very real conseuences Over the course of “Night Lords The Omnibus” characters I liked and identified with got injured and some even died So the stories had a thrilling almost anything can happen vibe to themIt's hard to pick which of the stories in “Night Lords The Omnibus” is my favorite because all are fun powerful and exciting Plus they're a diverse bunch of tales that feature a wide variety of locales and exciting action If pressed though I'd have to say the second and third Novels were the ones I enjoyed the most In the second novel “Blood Reaver” you get to see Talos and company do what they do best as they engage in a daring and cunning assault against rival Space Marines and then pull off a cunning heist In the third novel “Void Stalker” you get a fantastic climax that provides a ton of fulfilling and powerful payout to the storylines from the other books and short storiesIf you're a 40K fan who has yet to read “Night Lords The Omnibus” yet you need to remedy that It's a fantastic series of stories and I look forward to reading of Demski Bowden's 40K work especially his Horus Heresy novel “The Last Heretic” which focuses on the Word Bearers Space Marine Legion since I think they're some of 40K's bestworst villains

    What a blast Maybe best Black Library omnibus ever after Eisenhorn's one AVE DOMINUS NOX

    I don't always give five stars but when I do it's to ADB To uote a memeThis isn't the poshest literature you can read but it's Good It's well written the pace is proper the details which some reviews here complain about are what made it work for me It was the first book I read from the 40k lore and it's perfectly understandableThe thing for me were the characters though Every one of the protagonists is fleshed out and believable and not a mere cardboard chaos marine I loved the human characters as well who had their own lives and weren't just there to illustrate how awesome or terrifying the Astartes were They're all complex relateable in a way and well writtenAnyhow 1010 would read again

    A really awesome trilogy At least as good as the Eisenhorn trilogy The third book was probably the best and the climax was perfectly timed and executed

    ADB is a man who knows how to write a damned good story His ability to make a damned good story is because the man knows how to make damned interesting and sympathetic charactersTake the VIII Legion of Adeptus Astartes for instance They're traitors siding with Horus during the days of myth known as the Great Heresy They waged brutal war upon the Imperium they had once built all to prove a point to their gene grandfather the Emperor not yet seen as a god about the cost of hubris In other words they're really big hypocrites not to mention sadistically cruel for the sake of cruelty And yet ADB manages to make them look like almost noble warriorsThe Night Lords omnibus is a collection of several short stories as well as the trilogy of novels that came out several years ago that I missed featuring the members of First Claw Tenth Company VIII Legion Night Lords It's a hefty volume clocking in at over 900 pages with relatively small print So you than get your money's worth out of it And despite its obvious heft it's a hell of a great readTalos the 'Soul Hunter' is the main character of the tale Talos is a haunted individual Haunted by the former greatness of his Legion by the former greatness of a cause now long abandoned and haunted by the ideal of the noble warrior that he truly believes the Night Lords once were and could be This is part of the brilliance of Aaron's writing Talos spends so much of the series truly believing his fanciful notion that the Night Lords were noble that they were true warriors even if their methods of forcing compliance and submission were rather brutal than even what the Space Wolves or World Eaters would do This is made all the believable by seeing Talos through the eyes of two slaves Septimus the 7th and Octavia the 8th Through the eyes of these two mortals both of whom in their own way show their unwavering devotion to Talos throughout the tale we see the true greatness within Talos as an individual Talos' greatness both as a warrior and even dare I say it as a man is made all the apparent by its contrast with the rest of the members of his Claw the warband he's attached to and the rest of the Legion as a whole Xarl is a warrior through and through but he rarely has time for Talos' notions of greatnessCyrion is a manipulative sort who seemingly is out only for survival and the joy of battleUzas is on the very verge of falling into Khornate subservience Mercutian might be a bit on the noble side like Talos but even he falls prey to the Night Lords trait of enjoying the slaughter and torture of those they've conuered or defeated And their warband is led by a member of the old Legion from the Heresy days Vandred who is now possessed by a daemon that calls itself The Exalted You can see why so much of Talos' own nobility and ideals are so starkly contrasted by his fellow Astartes Aaron shows uite a bit of the 40K universe in the course of the series that isn't very often showcased such as life within the Eye of Terror the less then reliable promises of Abaddon and the sheer chaotic majesty that is Huron Blackheart's domain within the Eye itself One thing that really stood out to me as well is the sense of decay and near hopelessness that the members of First Claw experience on a daily basis They are fighting forwell they don't really know what they're fighting for They're merely fighting to survive The nuance that Aaron brings to the members of a Chaos Space Marine Legion and their own reasoning's for carrying on the Long War is a refreshing change from the likes of the screaming sorcerers from the first Dawn of War game METAL BOXES In short without giving any of the actual story away I really want you to read this it's that damned good so I don't want to spoil any of it I will say that this is a wonderful story with a refreshing twist on Chaos Astartes While Talos near the end realizes the futility of his ideals and the impossibility of his dreams he still remains as one of the best characters in any 40K story I've read thus far Definitely worth five stars and will definitely be read again in the future If you ever see this many thanks Aaron for such a damned good story

    This book is very well writen but the plot takes awhile to get anywhere and doesn't really focus on telling any sort of grand narrative

    Excellent epic and intelligent A detailed review in Bulgarian is coming soon

    Couldn't put it down Brilliant trilogy and shorts Must read for any Sci Fi fan ADB really knows how to write Chaos Space Marines and make you very sympathetic towards what are effectively the bad guys in warhammerwill be reading this again sometime

    In the dark violent Warhammer 40000 universe stories about loyalist Space Marines tend to be monotonously alike They are all ridiculously over powered and fanatically single minded in doing the Emperor's will The forces of Chaos are disturbingevil but can offer a lot variety as protagonists so I decided to check out this trilogy featuring a company of Chaos Space Marines aka the bad guysThe Night Lords are sadistic atrocity committing cowards almost as likely to turn on each other as they are to wreak their vengeance on the Empire They are not so corrupted by Chaos that they are unthinking monsters but they have become little than scattered bands of raiders and pirates The narration mostly follows the prophet Talos and his human slaves Septimus and Octavia as Talos tries to bring some sort of unity and meaning back to the scattered VIII LegionAs with any  Warhammer 40K book these are purely escapist stories filled with violence and gore given the nature of our protagonists the gore is ratcheted up a few notches and the writing is only so so certain stock descriptionsphrases get overused one seemingly important story thread just vanishes without resolution etc Basically it's about what you would expect from a series based on a tabletop gameIt was interesting reading from the bad guys' perspective and seeing their reasons for doing what they do At least they're honest about being evilI personally find the Emperor and other good guys to be almost as reprehensible in most stories It was pretty much what I expected it to be it was a good read for what it was and I've had my fill of dark uber violent sci fi for a while
