Crisis of Faith Book

Post#1 » Jul 13 2017 01:13

New Tau book came out on Saturday, so far I'm loving it. It's actually from the perspective of Farsight, and not the space marines for once. It goes in depth about some of the things the earth and water caste do so lots of cool bits of information there. It takes place right as Farsight is promoted to mission commander and highly recommend it to anyone who lives for the greater good!

We already have a thread about this book....and you are clearly in the minority with your opinion. ;)

Oh, I didn't think a novel thread would be in the library board since that's for user based stories so I didn't bother to check there.

It's not an amazing book by any standard, I'm just happy to have a dedicated Tau novel for once.

You sure? I saw you posting this thread in the Library section before posting it here. ;)

Yeah, I moved it because I posted it there by accident.

All good, I see you are offering more of a review - so right forum to post your topic in.

Library is for all books and short fiction, I'll ammend the introduction to be clearer on this :)

I've seen that happen back in 4th edition; and I once in 5th edition had a Gun Drone shoot down a Greater Daemon of Khorne. For real!

First positive score appears on goodreads. It isn’t a good sign. I probably should pull myself together and actually write a review. Ignoring Enemy Of The Empire misgivings is a rational choice, but I’m afraid it has long-term consequences.
If they can’t relocate a competent writer (like Guy Haley) it would be better not to have tau novels at all.
