Triumff: Her Majesty's Hero (2009)
language
English
3.39 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: A strange book, one of the few that can be said to "galumph." The opening is something like 20 pages of description about a rainstorm, which sounds horrible but was gut-bustinglypo funny in places. Set in an alternate 2009 in an England that never knew science, only magic, and ...
Resurrection Man, Vol. 1: Dead Again (2012)
language
English
3.34 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This was really disjointed. After the fourth issue, the story goes off in a completely different tangent that seems unrelated to original story in any way. The character of Resurrection Man has been used well in the DC universe on occasion - this isn't one of them. Way too muc...
The New Deadwardians (2013)
language
English

review 1: In an alternate history England, 1890 saw the island overrun with zombies. Desperate to save some semblance of civilization, the nobility turned themselves into vampires, giving them enough strength to wall off London. The world is now comprised of the vampiric noble elite, an ...
Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2: War Of Kings Book 1 (2009)
language
English

review 1: I’m usually a fan of large casts and simultaneous stories, but this volume seemed to bludgeon me with them. There are only three characters really, shooty and witty leader, stoic yet emotional bruiser, and cosmic powered enigma. These would be fine if there weren’t at least 2 of ...
Embedded (2010)
language
English

review 1: I'm a fan of Abnett's Warhammer 40,000 books and hoped that this one would be as good. Of course, he didn't have the enormous ready-made backdrop to make use of, but still manages to have a decent stab as describing why the journalist Lex Falk has travelled to a new colony world,...
Know No Fear (2012)

English

review 1: After his last heresy entry this was a very welcome novel for Dan. This actually did what other ultramarines novels couldn't and made me love the chapter. It was fast paced and informative with plenty of insights all around. It was actually able to make me feel like the treachery...
Prospero Burns (2011)

English
4.12 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: 'Prospero Burns' was a fun read, but was it a great book? I would really award this book a 3.5 rating, but I feel it deserves the better slide of the scale. How do I feel about this book? Where does it stand in the series? Well, I think Dan Abnett is a frequent offender of a few ...

review 1: The writers probably knew the series was being cancelled by this point, with only a few issues to go. As a result, some storylines seemed rushed, while others were abandoned altogether. Yet the series had lost so much of its focus that it really didn't seem to matter. Personally,...
Guardians of the Galaxy - Volume 2: War of Kings - Book 1 (2009)
language
English

review 1: Well, another great GOTG book from DnA! The team is ruptured and leaderless, and the time/space continuum problem is still looking to happen. Lots of good fight scenes, as well as some Marvel lore I'm not familiar with, but DnA, once again, have a way of making the obscure/past r...
Planeta 86 (2010)

review 1: Has some great moments, wonderful little set-pieces and play-offs of character against character, and the extended introduction you get to the protagonist is probably one of the best I've seen in a long time, but...There's always that but!The ending felt a little flat, a little t...
Horus Heresy: Know No Fear (2012)
language
English
4.19 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This book really drew me in. I found it took a while to really get in to the book, as a lot of things had to get introduced prior to the start of the Calth betrayal. Once events started to unfold during the novel, it was nonstop action all the way to the end. I really enjoyed the...
Salvation's Reach (2011)
language
English
4.23 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Abnett takes slightly different approach in this latest Gaunt's Ghosts novel. There is a tense, throw-the-reader-off-track beginning, and then a fairly slow, more character related development, admittedly interspersed with one major space-fleet battle and a shape-shifting assassi...
The Unremembered Empire (2014)
language
English
4.2 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I'm finishing off my collection of "to read" Warhammer books, I've given up expecting a conclusion to the Horus Heresy any time soon and as such won't be buying any more.With that in mind though, this title is good. Forget about it progressing the Heresy to the long overdue (in...
Sabbat Worlds Anthology (2010)
language
English
4.02 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: All of these stories were good, the different authors picked (how I'm not sure, I''m assuming either BL or Dan Abnett himself asked about) all contributed their own little flavor to the overall 'Daniverse' and the man himself contributed two fantastic stories. My favorites were N...

4.11 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: When I picked up Titanicus I didn't really know what to expect. Well of course there would be titans and probably a whole bunch of techpriests running around, but I had never read anything from Dan Abnett before.The story is quite good. Beside a big battle between titans there's ...

English

review 1: Dan Abnett might just be my favorite writer. I read Eisenhorn before this (I recommend anyone starting WH40k books start there as well) and I am just as impressed by Ravenor. Ravenor's another great addition to the Interrogator chronicals Dan Abnett has writeen for the WH40k un...
Nova, Volume 2: Knowhere (2014)
language
English
series
3.96 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I didn't really enjoy Nova's part in the Annihilation books, mostly because his interactions with the Worldmind were clunky, wordy, and not terribly interesting. The Worldmind still shows up a lot here, but since it's more of a Nova solo adventure, it's not jammed into the panels...

language

review 1: It was an ok story. I liked reading more about nebula the best. Then I enjoyed seeing Sif, one of my favorite characters. If you loved the movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" it would be a good idea to give this a chance. I mainly only liked the two prelude issues, infinite comic #1,...
God Complex (2011)
language
English
2.97 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The idea of this is much more interesting than the execution, but overall it was pretty entertaining and the art was nice. It doesn't quite live up to its title and premise though, mostly because it's a mini-series and much too short.I liked the Thor/Iron Man interactions though ...
Guardians of the Galaxy by Abnett & Lanning: The Complete Collection Volume 1 (2014)
language
English
3.91 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Perhaps a bit-in-the-weeds-y for those coming in just having seen the movie (the actual start of the Guardians story is probably somewhere around the "Annihilation" mini-series), mostly due to an overdose of Adam Warlock-ness, but if you're willing to jump in with both feet it is...
