Fun book. Action packed. Really enjoying this series. Don‘t have as much time currently during the week to read but couldn‘t wait for the weekend to read it.

Because I can't read just one WH40k novel at a time, I read this, the next in the Imperial Guard series. Unlike others, it wasn't quite as fast-paced, and tended to drag, not because of plot, but I believe because the quality of prose was a little lacking. All told it was a fun read, and wouldn't tell you *not* to read it if you are a fan.

The entirety of the Warhammer 40k universe and novels is a guilty pleasure for me. They are typically fast reads, filled with action and intrigue, and manage to touch on a surprising number of sci-fi tropes. Death World is no exception, and was better than expected.

If you are looking for sci-fi action from start to finish, then any Warhammer 40k book is probably a good fit. I don't like giant power-armored space marines, however, so the Imperial Guard series is a good place to start. I wasn't sure how this would be, but was pleasantly surprised. Is it high-brow lit? Heck no. But, it is a lot of sci-fi fun and military action with a good story. It was just what I was after.

Bookish Song Nr 39: Friends

Yes of course I needed a song to this favourite of mine. And while listening to Friends by Blake Shelton I couldn't help but imaging those two slashing through a horde of monsters while always having each others back. Because that they do.

How could I possibly NOT love those two? How could I possibly NOT love the whole book? King writes a perfect combination of Warhammer, humour and characters. And everything just fits. Gotrek and Felix have such a special relationship, and both are such great characters, they now are second in row in my Warhammer Top Ten (Number one will always be Gaunt).

Trigger warning: some arcs in this book will NOT be completely finished.

This was not only my first foray into the books of Warhammer, but also into adult “dark“ fantasy. I didn't know exactly what to expect because I've heard the lore of Warhammer is vast in scope. However, when I read this book, I felt like I did when I read fantasy books in middle and high school. It was very difficult for me to stop reading once I started, which I take as a sign of a good book.

Loved it. One of my faves so far. Book 19 of the series.

Bookish Song Nr. 35: The Last Of The Real Ones

Yes, another Gaunt song. But it's just too perfect not mention. It's their whole story packed into a song. The whole relationship between Gaunt and his Ghosts. Their past. The way they've come.

Where will they go? I do hope they'll find a new home for themselves.

Enjoyed book 18 of the series. I don‘t find the characters particularly interesting but still enjoyed it.
