Out Now: RAVENLORD by Gav Thorpe (Black Library)


Despite the frequent criticism that meets them, Black Library sure know how to put together nice special editions. (See, for example, Arjac Rockfistand that’s the less special of two editions they had…) The latest limited edition is a kind-of-sequel to Deliverance Lost, Thorpe’s first Horus Heresy novel. There were originally 4,000 copies available, but they’re now down to less than 1,000. So, if you have £30 to spare, then be sure to get your order in ASAP.

As the Horus Heresy continues, Corax and the remnants of his once mighty Legion now wage an entirely different kind of war – liberating worlds oppressed by traitor forces, they gather more and more followers, disrupting the Warmaster’s influence wherever they can. But after an unexpected reunion with a fellow survivor of Isstvan V, the Raven Guard learn of the prison colony of Carandiru and realise that they must face the ghosts of their past on Deliverance if they are to prevail.

If you’re not sure whether or not you want to plonk down the cash, you can check out an excerpt here.

Here are some images of the book itself. Starting with the cover:


And the detail that has been embossed on to the hardcover:



I really like that feather-detail…


Anyway, I’d love to read this. If you aren’t able to afford the book (like me), then as with previous limited editions – e.g. Promethean Sun, Brotherhood of the Storm, and Aurelian – will most likely be available as an eBook and in print in a couple of years time.
