4.0 out of 5 stars Good air tight storage, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a pair of these storage containers having previously bought the black 90 liter boxes (currently unavailable) I'm happy with them so far. I have an external garage and water blows under the door so it's a bit damp. These boxes mean i can store fabrics books and a range of objects that would get mildew on if they where exposed to damp. 90 liters is an excellent size and the boxes are nice and deep enabling large objects to be stored. The clasps do have a slightly wobbly feel to them but they do the job of sealing the boxes and holding them shut. The boxes also stack when being stored which is handy.


Triumff: Her Majestys Hero (Angry Robot)
Triumff: Her Majestys Hero (Angry Robot)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and action compensate for disjointed feel, 29 Aug 2011
As a long standing Abnett fan I looked forward to seeing what he could do with a Elizabethan romp. What I got was an odd book that feels like it could have done with more time and more editorial input. While the central plot hangs together, at times it feels like there are too many elements competing for space on the page. This leaves too little time to properly explore many of the characters and subplots. What rescues the book is an terrific sense of fun, an unabashed over the top prose style and Abnett's core strength in frenetic action. The prose style may grate on some but for me it was fun to see an author really let go and wallow in the joys of over the top word smithery. It's the kind of book you have to be in the right mood for otherwise the flaws will outweigh the positives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Abnett does action, 2 Aug 2011
This review is from: Embedded (Angry Robot) (Paperback)
It's nice to see a writer like Dan Abnett concentrate on what he does best: Writing compulsive page turning military sci-fi that rockets along at a frantic pace. In this book Abnett branches out from his usual stomping ground of the Warhammer 40k universe and creates his own. He does a pretty good job of realizing it too (nice little touches like insect "blurds" filling in bird niches) but he doesn't let this get in the way of his core strength of roller-coaster relentless action sequences. The book does start a little slowly while the central premise gets setup, but from the moment the hopter lifts of to head to the warzone the pace never let up. For those looking for a sci-fi based action romp this is a must read, fans of high concept sci-fi might be a bit disappointed with the lack of depth in exploring some of the underlying concepts e.g. space travel working is just a "given" in the universe
