Books featuring Night Haunter and Night Lords


Recommended Posts

I'm starting up Night Lords and I want to read some novels about them, specifically ones where Konrad Curze is featured. I haven't read any of the Heresy series yet, so I'm not sure which ones would be worth my time if I'm only interested in NL.


Just from browsing around, I think buying the Shadows of Treachery and Age of Darkness makes the most sense?


Then I could read The Dark King then Savage Weapons then Prince of Crows. Would that be the correct chronological order?


Once I catch up on Night Haunter novels, I plan on reading Lord of the Night and ADB's series.

Yeh, Shadows of Treacherie is very good.


The book has 3 stories about the Night haunter, and it presents them in the right order. If i recall correctly, Dark King, Lightning Tower, Prince of Crows.


Lightning Tower is more about Dorn, then Curze, but it's still a nice read, and its the sequal to Dark King.

The Games Day 2009 chap book I believe, and possibly in a future release, like they did with The Dark King/Lightning Tower.

Shadow Knight is still in my all-time top 3 list of NL fiction, brief as the story may be.

Shadow Knight was in Hammer & Bolter issue 11. I think it's also in the "Best of Hammer & Bolter" book, if you prefer your stories in dead-tree format.

I like dead trees. They remind me I ride an engine that puts CO2 into the air so more can grow. And they're easier to buy with cash.
