Blood Ravens: The Dawn of War Omnibus (Warhammer 40,000 Omnibus)

Blood Ravens: The Dawn of War Omnibus - Cassern S. Goto It took me a while, but this book was certainly worth reading. For me, it was very appealing to see librarians that kick ass, and this book certainly highlights the Space Marine librarian characters well, including the good and the darker sides. That the Blood Ravens Space Marines are scholars themselves is also appealing. The books feature a good amount of action and intrigue, but if you like reading more about the lore of the Space Marines, you get a good amount of description and exposition as well. For the librarian in me, the descriptions of the Blood Ravens' librarium, the legends of the Eldar Black Library, and the Blood Ravens' pursuit of truth and knowledge (yes, those two are different) were things that drew me to this omnibus. However, you do not have to be a librarian to appreciate these novels. If you like good military scifi, you will probably enjoy these. If you already like WH 40K novels, these will be good for you. Though the books are based on a computer game, I do not feel it is necessary to have played the game; I have not played the game, and I certainly enjoyed these books. Overall a very good and entertaining read. Now, as for what character type I would want to be if I was in the WH 40K universe, I usually said an Imperial Inquisitor, but after this, it is a bit of a toss up between that and a Blood Ravens librarian member of the Order Psykana.
