With the official announcement yesterday of the title for book 7, what are your thoughts about what we can expect in the book? The front cover is a bit of a give away of course for at least one major encounter, but with the new FW Ka'bandha model due to be released I wonder if we'll see a model tie-in with the book? FW and BL used to do Primarch character models/Primarch LE novels collaborations IIRC. It will be interesting to see whether ADB's writing style has changed since his last full length novel Spears of the Emperor back in ... 2019? It's no secret that a lot has happened in his personal life since then, so it will be interesting to see whether this has impacted on his style or tone. ADB if you read this, please know that the community is rooting for you and we are all wishing you every success with this book and your health. But goddamn this must be an incredibly difficult novel to have to write, with all the open storylines and lore constraints to contend with, plus having the duty to setup the final Siege novel (and if this book is hyped, what will the hype levels for that one be?!) Is this the most anticipated BL book since Penitent? ADB's return + one of the most infamous encounters in the lore's entire history at the Eternity Gate + nearing the very end of the Siege ... the hype (and expectations) for this one are huge! Shall we guess at a release date? I'm going for April 9th! It can't come soon enough!!
A thread so the "News" topic doesn't get buried in pages of baseless speculation. Post your crack theories and idealized novels here. I'll start with one: ADB's been hinting at handling Sangy at the Eternity Gate, and I've never been so stoked about the rumor of a novel. If it comes to pass, I'm hoping for: A plot: A POV with Zephon as Sangy flies around being majestic. Hopefully this is accompanied with an excruciatingly close look at Blood Angels culture to make up for lost opportunities. Hopefully Zephon dies at the end or makes some ominous comment about the Vengeful Spirit. B plot: Night Lords run rampant but start hitting a wall as all the humans are basically mulched by then. Malcharion gets to do things before he faces Blood Angel whatsisname from the Night Lords trilogy What's everyone's dream novel? And, out of curiosity, what do y'all think the author-to-novel distribution will be? What do you think the order and topics covered will be?
Could someone explain Variel to me?
DaBoiKyknos posted a topic in + THE BLACK LIBRARY +So, I read the three Night Lord novels by Aaron Dembski-Bowden some time ago... I guess I liked them, though I am not as crazy about them as some seem to be. The depiction of the battles were ok and I really liked how they described how it feels to fight in power armour, but some parts were a little long... Anyways, what really bothers me since is that I don´t really understand this one character, Variel from the Red Corsairs/ Astral Claws. He is an apothecary at this space station of the Corsairs and helps regulary to ease Hurons pains from the injuries he got back at Badab. His motivations are still a mistery to me. I mean, yes, we hear that, he has some sort of past with the warband of Talos and that Talos saved his life once. But why exactly does he join the Night Lords and leaves his Corsair brethren behind? He doesn´t really seem to like them for some reason, but we still don´t get to know why... He seems quite committed to the cause of Talos and this idea of his to fulfil his gene-fathers ideas, but I don´t really understand what makes this important to him. The Corsairs seem far better equipped, organized and generally more succesful than the Night Lords who show no unity whatsoever and mostly hate eahc others guts. Why join them? As Talos said to him more or less "you owe me" (because i saved your life), he answers "Yeah, well I just saved yours" (from the reoccuring complications with his geneseed/ his prophetic gift). Which just makes total sense to me! But in the end, somehow he seems to be convinced like he got to join the Night Lords now and leaves the Corsairs. He then is for the rest of the trilogy (appearing in the middle of the second novel and joining them at roughly the end of the book) part of this Night Lords warband and seems to be a crucial character until the very end (appearing in the epilog years after Talos´ death). Could someone explain me why he is doing, what he is doing? I might have mixed some things up. If that´s the case, I´m sorry. It´s been a while since I read the books and English is not my first language, thus I sometimes don´t remember things that good as in German. Greetings, Velype
