About this deal

Zahariel and Chapter Master Astelan lead the team of Astartes sent to investigate and discover signs that the plant's garrison was murdered, but not their bodies.

These girls grew up under the control of an arbitrary father, but it was their alcoholic mother who gave the girls the greatest influences of their lives. It's been a long time since I read something as depressing as this, and still, the ending gave me a sort of feeling of "everything will turn out just fine". Realising that Archoi is a traitor who was poised to hand the siege machines over to Horus when the Dark Angels arrived, Nemiel and his squad are discovered but kill several of the traitor Army commanders before escaping to rejoin the rest of the Dark Angels. As in Girl with a Pearl Earring, Chevalier displays an enviable knack for evoking a particular period and place, and her handling of some of the novel's most poignant moments is unfailingly sensitive.

I have to admit my knowledge of the suffragettes is minimal, so I can’t really comment on the way this book portrayed them – it seemed ok to me. This was one of the first books that our reading group read probably around ten or eleven years ago now and it took a real pasting on the grounds of the way in which it portrayed the suffragettes. And Chevalier does a good line in ghouls, with visits from the Coleman grandmother as much a treat for readers as it is a shuddering nightmare for her relatives. Despite his poor treatment of his wife, he is still oddly protective of her, insisting that his daughters watch her all the time. However having been recommended it by some of you and by some of the other tour guides at Highgate Cemetery (which plays a huge part in the setting of the book) I mentioned it enough around the house for The Converted One to get a copy for me as a surprise belated birthday treat.

It is revealed that his connection to the taint allowed him to realise that the Terrans were attempting to banish the creature, not summon it, and that it has not gone but is still infesting the planet.

Perhaps it’s the book covers, which seem so run-of-the-mill; oh dear, maybe I am guilty of having judged a book by its cover.

This book just didn't do anything for me, and was weird and gross and morbid and depressing on top of it. The Falling Angels is a book about being Irish and about the way the Irish see the English and vice versa; and how it feels to fall in between. an intoxicating memoir of Ireland and being Irish (and Anglo-Irish as well) from one of literature’s most flamboyant characters. The classic reference work on angels is beautifully illustrated and its reissue coincides with the resurgence of belief in angels in America.

Taddeus Kullik and his surviving forces arrive to help, but they are wiped out to man in a surprise attack by the Sons of Horus that is only turned back by the Lion's intervention. I definitely want to read Remarkable Creatures too — I love women who got involved in the sciences at a time when they weren’t very welcome. I liked the multiple first person narrator structure of the book, giving an all round view of events and the characters’ views and thoughts.
