The Death of Antagonis (Book 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.
In this world there are many kinds of bad novels. Those which serve had no research put into them. Those which aren’t so much stories as badly disguised hate crimes by the authors towards fictional characters and fans of said characters. Those which are not bound by any logic and those which are in bad taste.
Death of Antagonis
is a new kind of bad novel, the sort which seems to intentionally torment its reader.
The story this time is about the enigmatic Black Dragons, a force spawned out of the cursed 21
founding and sufferers of gene mutations. Specifically their overgrowth of bones resulting in members of their kind being massively proportioned even by space marine standards and with some even developing retractable bone blades which they coat in adamantium. Feared by the people of Imperium, hated by higher ups in the Terran hierarchy, shunned by many chapters; they’re effectively one Canadian away from fighting for a better tomorrow under Chaplain Xavier.
Fighting this time for the planet Antagonis as it is struck by a plague of undeath, the Black Dragons’ second company is deployed to rescue the planet’s populace. This is where things start to go horribly wrong. Oh not for the marines, that comes later, but for the book itself.
Most authors actually take the time to establish things. David Annandale does not.
