Bloodquest: Prisoners of the Eye of Terror (Audiobook Review)
As with the last book review this is posted in full on
and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.
Back in the mists of the early primordial time that was 1999 to before the tau had turned up and the space stunties had only just disappeared there was a comic called
. One of several published within Black Library’s
it covered the quest by disgraced Blood Angels hunting a lost relic. The comic showed heroes fighting against insurmountable odds and dared to flesh out aspects such as the organised daemon worlds within the Eye of Terror not under the direct control of the traitor legions. Better yet it managed to do this without completely botching either.
Despite a rocky start it eventually built up a fandom strong enough to last three books across four years and be reprinted twice. Apparently someone in Black Library liked it enough to issue this audiobook, harkening back to the glory days of the comic and serving as a side-story to the series. Taking place just after the halfway point within the second book, the three remaining astartes following captain Leonatus encounter the last thing they expected to see on the world of Eidolon: potential allies. Unfortunately despite much promise the story just ends up being a missed opportunity.
