The Dweller in the Deep Novel
4.0 out of 5 stars What a finish!, 8 Mar 2014
Dweller in the Deep is the third and final book of the Dark Waters trilogy, a trilogy of novels set in the Arkham Horror universe from Fantasy Flight Games. I suppose as many people did, I came to these books for the 'exclusive' cards available from FFG through the form in the back of them, but to be honest, they've actually been really entertaining!

The story takes him from Arkham, where the first book was set, to the town of Kingsport, which also forms one of the major… Read more
Star Wars: The Old Republic - Deceived by Paul S. Kemp
4.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm, 21 Jan 2014
I've been a longtime reader of Star Wars novels, from the glory days of the Bantams right through to the present day. There are a fair number of turkeys in the run, and while I wouldn't necessarily say this should be among their number, I did find it lacking in some respects.

As a standalone novel, Deceived is largely okay, but there are a lot of good points that make me like it, but I couldn't help thinking that it was somehow flawed. Set in the Old Republic era, the novel ties into the MMORPG "The Old Republic", and the opening sequence of the novel has already been seen in one of the trailers for the game. That was a nice touch. However, I do have a slight issue with the Old… Read more
