Ahriman: Exile (Warhammer 40000) by John French
I had just finished reading 'A Thousand Sons' from the Horus Heresy when I came across this book in Waterstones. Being a Chaos SM player it was a must buy.

When I got home and opened it up, the font size was double that of normal Black Library books and it seems they have upped the size of the type to give the impression the book is bigger than it actually is, thus justifying the 8.99 price tag.

Once I read the book though, none of that mattered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be on your Guard!, 24 April 2013
Just a warning if anyone is considering buying Dread Ball. There are two versions - standard and deluxe. The standard version is 20 cheaper. However, stuff is missing such as the player cards, and the rule book is poor - it doesn't even explain what the different players are or what they are supposed to do. I have ended up buying the A4 rules off E-Bay as the small rules are so poor. I think they have a cheek doing this personally. I thought that the Deluxe just had better quality pieces, I didn't realise some of the game components had been taken out. Not impressed...

I downloaded this book for the Kindle, and as what is becoming an alarming feature, the story is littered with typographic errors. Seeing as we pay for the books, I think the publishers should take more care in the work they are selling. It's shoddy and uncacceptable to release Kindle books with so many errors.

Now onto the book itself... The book proclaims to be a Steampunk novel but it is clear the author has no real knowledge as to what Steampunk actually is. It's not as though it is difficult to research Steampunk in the days of the Internet.

My biggest gripe with this book however is the authors continued lack of scene setting. We get told the anti-hero is put out… Read more
