machine So they suit him up and send him back with 30 fellows to punish the monsters who have been torturing him for the last aeonHis tale of return and revenge is overlaid with his tale of what happened the first time around in interleaving chapters All in all the book is vaguely reminiscent of Memento where you realize you are watching two separate stories albeit those two are convergingThere are problems here though Big shocker There has to be a dramatic reveal so Lysander has to have hidden some details from the InuisitionInterrogation upon returning to real time Which

Malodrax

What bargains did Lysander make to escape the world that had become his gaol And to what lengths will he go to keep those pacts veiled from his battle brother The novel is a strange breed From one half of the book it is undoubtedly good then it s writing about Chaos But then it comes to Lysander and IF it s so boring and generally crappy that i dont even know how to rate it correctly It s like 2 different authors were writing it Counter explores the nature of a Space Marine in regards to victory defeat despair humiliation and the purpose of hatred and revenge But i do not have any feelings for his Imperial Fists For a of the intense and darkly beautiful to me at least depictions of Chaos that is the aspect of Counter s writing that I like the best I give Malodrax a score of 35 This is a novel that I would suggest most for 40k Chaos fans to try as with most of Ben Counter s work it s something you d have to try yourself to see if you like it

free read Malodrax

All out soul shredding action from the author of the fan favourite Soul Drinkers seriesHeld prisoner for years at the hands of the Iron Warriors Chaos Space M There s nothing wrong with the writing or story but I found this book really really hard going So hard going I read another book in the middle

    The Review “A fast paced fun and enjoyable read Malodrax may not be the best Space Marine Battles Novel but neither is it the worst with Counter proving just how well he can write the forces of Chaos Unfortunatley this comes at a price – and his Imperial Fists don’t leave as much an impression as they should” Bane of King

    Very interesting indeed My favourite part is the portrayal of Lysander Not how I expected him but I have a better sense of his nature My admiration of the Imperial Fists wasn't lessened in fact it was probably made stronger I recommend this to those who like Space Marines or Chaos which does play a big part in the tale

    Finished malodrax was easily a 4 starA uniue outlook on a chaos world the planet itself having sentience and wishing to be ruled playing its part in manipulating its commanders to suabble to create one worthy ruler The book Had a very distinct chaotic flavour to it that i hadnt tasted before
