Vulkan Lives (The Horus Heresy) by Nick Kyme
3.0 out of 5 stars Yes its okay, 1 Jun 2014
Yes its okay but, as with recent books in the series, it doesn't move the heresy along. I felt that it was more a case of "here's a legion we haven't used before so let's give them a book" rather than " let's move the story on a bit". In a way its just a money making exercise as the story gets extended more and more by average books.
The early books were much more enjoyable and better paced but now its all a bit bogged down.
That said, Kyme is a decent writer and he moves the story along at a decent pace. Not great not awful just average overall.

The rest of the album contains some catchy tunes with… Read more

Its okay.

Always liked Hugh Jackman and found him the perfect fit for Wolverine but I find this sort of "bloodless" violence type film not one thing or another.

I know they want it to be for Kids as they want it to be seen by as many people as possible and I am not posting this as an advocate for increased violence in films but if you have a film in which many people get killed/injured you cant always make that child friendly and bloodless as it becomes unrealistic and very samey. I think Wolverine is a gritty character but that grittiness is diluted by the need for the right rating and box office success.

So far as the story goes its okay - hence… Read more
