The Unkindness of Ravens

A video from the Black Library about the upcoming limited edition novel The Unkindness of Ravens, which is available coming May 7th. The book and even much more for me, the artwork sounds promising. Personally I just ordered Deliverence Lost, and am going to be starting Know No Fear tonight or tomorrow.

Captain Daed and his Brazen Minotaurs fight a hopeless battle on a vital world, assaulting an impenetrable fortress held by their treacherous foes. When help arrives in the form of the Raven Guard, commanded by Daed’s old ally, Captain Koryn, the Imperial forces finally have a chance of victory. But can the subtle stealth forces of the Raven Guard and the bold, brash Brazen Minotaurs work together, or will they all be doomed?

  1. My two favorites are still Nemesis and Dead Men Walking, but this looks neat too..but did it say who the bad guys of this story are or did i miss it?

  2. I devoured Deliverance Lost and enjoyed it so much that I began toying with a marine army!
    The Unkindness of Ravens looks like it'll be worth it too!

  3. JayDee - the opponents are the Death Guard.

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you, (I'm the Anon who keeps asking for Raven Guard and Iron Warrior art). Thanks for these and the link. Can't wait to get this book!!!

  5. Both of my fav chapters in one volume? Nice!

    Just hope it's better than Labrynth of Sorrows, cos that was just too simple.

  6. Check out Void Stalker if you haven't already. I've finished Deliverance Lost, Know No Fear, and Void Stalker all within two weeks or so. All good reads. Currently reading The Emperor's Finest. Next on deck is The Outcast Dead. Black Library has been hitting home runs lately.

    On Topic: I refuse to participate in their asinine Limited Editions. No story should be kept from the fans.

  7. I'm... not a fan of the name, sounds like a euphemism. "what's the title of t
    he book?"
    "A Murder of Ravens!" "Golly, that sounds BA! Can we tone it down a bit?"
    "sure, sir..."
    aside from that, it sounds cool.

    1. Murder of Ravens wouldn't really work - it's a murder of crows, a group of ravens is an unkindness, hence the title.

  8. Sounds like good stuff, Raven Guard usually make for compelling protagonists and a conflict like that within the imperial forces also sounds like it's worth a read.
    However, the titel kind of threw me. Now, I'll be the first to admit that my english is somewhat lacking, but the whole title just seems...convulted, I guess. It cetainly does not roll of the tongue very smoothly.
