Default Sequel to Rogue Star coming soon

I thought this should be general rather than Black Library, because this is a Tau oriented board and Rogue Star was one of the better Tau-including BL stories.

Star of Damocles, the sequel to Rogue Star, will be going to the printers soon. We are going to get another novel with the Tau in it. The last one ended right before the Damocles crusade, so it seems to me this could be an actual novelization of the Damocles crusade. How cool would that be?

Interesting, the more we have on the Tau the better, the Tau have nowhere near the amount of fluff that many of the other armies do. More information on the Damocles Crusade would also be most welcome, especially just after the Crusade when Farsight found the Dawn Blade.

I liked some stuff in Rogue Star, mainly the general stuff, but I think the Space battles were quite far from what BFG does. In any case, it was interesting reading, and gave some insight to Tau tech.

I loved Rogue Star, the best bits were the space battles in my opinion

Space Battles were well written, but felt (to me) to be very wrong in...well...feel. Too 'fast'. Too swift, perhaps? Didn't feel like my beloved BFG at all...

But it was still well written, and still a very enjoyable read (I told Andy this much over on the BL forums himself!) as far as the space battles go.

As for the rest of the novel?

Well, actually one of the far better books I've read by BL. It shows that Andy is a first time author (the story's pacing was slightly off and felt a wee bit disjoint at points, but nothing that more writing won't iron out). It wasn't up to the sheer pleasure of Matt Farrer's Crossfire (which was deliciously written), but aside from that: it's still a damned good, damned fun read.

I was pretty confident the bulk of the story who the antagonists would be, but even then it had enough bits in it to keep me thinking "Is that what it appears, would they do that, maybe that's not what I think it means...?!"

A damned good read, and a shame it wasn't longer! Which makes me particularly happy to see Star of Damocles sitting just around the corner! (figuratively speaking, of course!)

So, yes: I, for one, am looking forward to this!

Just a heads up, but the cover art and an excerpt are up on the Black Library website. Looks as though we won't be disappointed.

Star of Damocles was a very good read.
