Ravenwing, the novel written by Gav Thorpe from the Black Library, is one novel I have not yet gotten to that I still look forward to reading. Ravenwing is supposed to be the first book in a trilogy, and earlier today I was sent a little information about it.


Please remember that nothing official has been released yet, so this classifies this still as a rumor.

I have asked gav thrope, and he said that he will write a new ravenwing novel probably continuing after the first one, and the title for the next novel is Master of Sanctity.

  1. Lol Ravenwing already tells us this. It says mater of sanctity forthcoming. You'll will enjoy Ravenwing my friend, dark angels have the best fluff.

    1. Still makes me wonder why more DA books are not written. They have to be one of the more interesting chapters.

    2. Yup, inside cover of Ravenwing says Master of Sanctity coming in 2013 from the same author - Gav Thorpe - so not really a rumour.. :)

      I almost gave up on Ravenwing half way but persevered and enjoyed it overall. Good coverage of cultists and the overall DA attitude which warms up in the second half. Preferred Purging of Kadillus. Big fan of Gav Thorpe overall.

      The issue i have with the DA is this "secret" they have. Either it's not so bad in which case what is all the fuss about or it really is that bad in which case why haven't they been found out and branded as heretics already. It sometimes feels their books are always going to be restricted so as never to bring this issue to a head, like one of those aimless lost TV series designed to go on without end.

      Gav Thorpe could just create a story with the Space Wolves, the Inquisition, and the DA and get it all out into the open and over and done with. ;)

    3. Clearly u haven't read enough on the fluff Monkey. Or even the codex. They don't get caught cuz if they are unable to conceal the fallen, they terminate any and all witnesses, including inquisitors. If you don't like reading about hidden truths, conspiracies and grey areas of morality (as there are in life) then just go back to reading about the 1 dimensional chapters like the ultra pansies.

    4. I've read the fluff GameTsar, including the codex, but it's extremely "safe". If the next two Dark Angel books get into the realms of actually eliminating Inquisitors and working on joint-ops with other legions and taking out some of their squads to cover up then it's getting a little more real. Dark Angels may be multi-dimensional but that's no good unless you actually explore this beyond internal brooding within the legion itself. If that's not the case please cite actual examples, as i have yet to find any.

  3. Ravenwing was not a good book. For me it read like an advert for the new codex. The "twists" were very obvious and there was so many problems with sentence structure i found it painful at times to read.

    Such a shame as i really enjoyed Angels of Darkness and I'm a big Dark angels player

    1. Dude it's still more skillfully written then most other black library authors, like Graham McNeil and nick kyme. Idk how those guys got a publishing deal.

  4. I think the book was hurt by the fact you really need to have read Angels of Darkness to understand what is going on. While it has recently been rereleased, Angels of Darkness had been out of print for many years, up to and including the release of Ravenwing.

    Gav Thorpe is not my favorite BL author, but it seems the Dark Angels are his. I'm hoping the next two books are better.

    1. Maybe cuz dark angels have always Bern dubbed a more "shooty" army.

  7. Finished Ravenwing last week having got it out of the library. Loved it, nice how it follows different levels of "in the know" can;t wait to read the next one.
    (PS understood it even though have never read Angels of Darkness.)
