    1. If the Night Haunter (Konrad Curze) is the Batman of the 31st Millennium, only a complete murdering psychotic and not a "no killing" avenging angel, then Jago Sevatar is the Clown Prince of Mayhem himself. Maybe it is just the way the reader acted as Jago, but I often found myself laughing at the way he delivered his often dry sarcasm so perfectly as to conjure up the Joker in my mind. Jago has got a LOT of problems in that old head of his, and realizing he is actually crazy AINT one of them. I [...]

    2. Holy fucking shit. This novella is definitely on even ground with Fulgrim as my #1 favourite Horus Heresy release, and my love for ADB is definitely growing!Before my quest to get caught up on the Horus Heresy series, I had my doubts about ADB's writing and story-telling. I hadn't read any of his work, and while Dan Abnett seems to get highly positive reviews just as ADB does, I had read a decent amount of Dan's work, and found it not quite perfect for me like Graham McNeill does. So in my delus [...]

    3. A continuation of the Thramas Crusade story arc this novella follows on from The Lion. The Dark Angel have finaly defeated the Night Lords Legion is decisive battle leaving their forces scattered and their Primarch Konrad Curze lies in a coma from wounds suffered at the hand sof the Lion.Trying to regroup their fleet, Sevetar takes control of the legion with the intent of dividing their forces across the Imperium and fighting what loyalists they find. During this time of reorganisation and turmo [...]

    4. If you've liked Bowden's way of handling the Night Lords Legion* this is a story for you. If you've liked Talos Valcoran, a geneforged warmachine turned murderer and traitor, with a bonus of complex personality and some extremely twisted and deeply buried moral fibre, then you will love Jago Sevatarion, the protagonist of this short.Of course usual Bowden's trademarks - seemingly instinctive but perfect feel of the 40K(30K?) universe, seemingly unnatural ability to create sentences that roll on [...]

    5. A top notch novella detailing events after the Night Lord's mauling by the Dark Angels during the Thramas Crusade. Centring around Jago Sevatarion, First Captain and leader of the Night Lords whilst Curze lies comatose with his injuries from The Lion, the story is a brilliant insight into the working of a traitors legion, and the characterisation is second to none. Note: This is also included in the Hersey collection "Shadows of Treachery"; it's the best contribution to that volume.

    6. Fantastic! Another great instalment by ADB. Sevatar reminds me of a legionnairy version of Deadpool. Definitely worth checking out.
