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. 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

review Malodrax

Arines Captain Darnath Lysander returns to the world of Malodrax with the Imperial Fists Chapter at his shoulder to exact revenge on his one time captors But. This book shows at what lengths a space marine is willing to go in order to take his revenge I thing that the book is well written and the passing from chapter to chapter is good and for me with no boring parts I enjoyed it very much

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. What length would you go to achieve victory What are you willing to give up Malodrax is about Darnath Lysander formally First Captain of The Imperial Fists who was lost in the warp while en route to put down a xeno incursion into Imperium space He is taken to the Iron Warriors stronghold on Malodrax where he subseuently escapes the prison and then finds himself making dubious pacts with even so dubious beings The story jumps between Lysander s originally imprisonment on Malodrax and then to a thousand years later where he has escaped the planet and brought back friends to pacify and annihilate both the xenos and Iron Warriors of Warsmith Kraegon Thul on the planet It is intelligently handled in the sense that Ben Counter writes a three pronged story that being from varying times of Lysander and then there is a short of historiography of the planet itself chronicled by a curious Imperial Inuisitor I wouldn t say the story is original I can go back to The Siege of Castellex which saw a Iron Warriors planet besieged by Orks Also the Iron Warriors in Malodrax seem to be different Where those in the novel Castellex seem to shorn all forms of worship to the Chaos gods those in Malodrax seem to do the reverse Then there is also a scene where the Iron Warriors wish to impress upon someone their deeds and cruelty to mere humans I m not sure it fitted in with my impression of the Iron Warriors That of having total belief in themselves and of iron they have no time for petty humans and especially no time for bestowing trinkets or showing off to others A bit of a leap if you know your stuff Someone mentioned in a review I read regarding Malodrax that the Imperial Fists aren t shown as super heroes that they are fallible I disagree that they aren t presented as super beings I mean they seem to go through everything they face including Iron Warriors with ten thousand years of war behind them like a knife through butter Fallible yes but only Lysander who ends up making deals with the devil to save his suad who was ripped from the warp and then by extension off planet A interesting posit by the author was how he presented to the reader that the planet was alive Sounds silly right Yes it reads silly also However it is much subtle than thrown into the readers face most of the time it is hinted at by highlighting the mirror conflict between Warsmith Thul and a lovely Chaos prince named Shalhadar The planet wants them to fight for possession of it it WANTS to be ruled but first you must pay for it the inhabitants pay for it with their blood and worship Your see through the attrition of himself that Lysander is affected by the planet This is certainly highlighted by his return to Malodrax and himself and his comrades from the original imprisonment start to feel well nothing Let s sum up the story has some very good ideas but they don t come together well for me It s sort of a Labyrinth style tale which is a bad thing itself but the portrayal of Lysander was distinctly lacking I didn t fully understand his persona He didn t lead the Imperial Fist strike force Which was strange He deferred to a suad sergeant What really disappointed me was how the Iron Warriors were shown as pious warriors That s not who they are if you ve read any Horus Heresy or 40K then your realise what I m talking about A nice touch by Ben Counter was the embodied of daemons into machines it was rather a amusing idea Give it a try you may think differently to me hopefully you will as I struggled with this one

    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 Kings The Founding Fields Held prisoner for years at the hands of the Iron Warriors
