Author Aaron Dembski-Bowden was born in the year 1980 in a rather grey part of London. He grew up with a boringly happy family, and spent quite a few years in Bangladesh. He works and lives in Northern Ireland. Before he wrote for BL Publishing, he worked as a writer for different video games and RPGs.

For most of his life, he wanted to be a novelist, after he previously dreamt of having other careers. Like a point guard in the NBA (which he found to be too English), an astronaut (which he found to be too stupid), and a paramedic (too lazy). All of these obviously didn’t pan out for Aaron.

He met his wife, named Catherine, in “World of Warcraft”, and has two children, a son (Alexander) and a daughter (Annah).

The office he works in, which is called The Aaronorium, houses many Phoenix Suns banners as well as a ton of books and his neat hat collection. The Aaronorium’s name began as a joke and just wound up sticking.

Aaron’s hobbies include everything that is within reach and he tells himself that the messes he makes in the kitchen is a bold new vision of cooking. A good chunk of his time, around 73% of his time, on this great planet is spent aiding people in how to spell his last name. He is also one of those kinds of people that is clearly unable to take a decent picture, and usually unintentionally comes across as either angry or smug in his photos.

He writes fantasy and science fiction. He has contributed extensively to the “Warhammer 40,000” series of novels, penning a number of different book series set in the extended universe. Aaron has penned a story in the “Judge Dredd” world as well. His debut novel, called “Nehwon”, was released in the year 2007.

“Spear of the Emperor” is the first novel in the “Emperor’s Spears” series, which was released in the year 2019. The Emperor’s Spears, which are a Chapter on the brink of destruction, serve as the last watchmen over the Elara’s Veil nebula. The choices of just a single man, Amadeus Kaias Incarius of the Mentor Legion, is going to now determine the Chapter’s fate.

The scattered worlds in the Elara’s Veil nebula used to be protected by the oath of unity sworn by three mighty Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes. Due to flaws in their genetic coding, the Star Scorpions were undone. The Celestial Lions became ravaged because of sins they did not commit during the Inquisition. After centuries, just the Emperor’s Spears are still keeping their vigil. These are barbarian watchmen against the Outer Dark; bloodied, yes, but unbroken during their long duty.

Amadeus Kaias Incarius, who is a brother of the Mentor Legion, is tasked with crossing the Great Rift and assess how ready the Spears are in going to war. He winds up pulled into the chaotic plight of a depleted holy war on the benighted frontier of the Imperium. The choices he makes, a great distance away from the God-Emperor’s light is going to decide the war-torn Chapter’s fate.

This is a fantastic book with excellent characters and astounding world building. Readers finished the book in just a couple sittings and are starting it over to experience it again. Aaron does a great job of mixing mystery and detail, inhumanity and humanity, and the setting helps pull you into the story better.

“Soul Hunter” is the first novel in the “Night Lords” series, which was released in the year 2010. The Night Lords and the Black Legion form a rather uneasy allegiance so that they can assault a valuable planet called Crythe Primus. The Imperial world mounts a stern defense, but the largest obstacle to success is going to be the mistrust and disunity happening between the two Legions. Is their covenant going to last long enough for them to succeed in their mission?

This author has a knack with writing some witty dialogue. He ties his characters up in some interesting quips that define them entirely. Dembski-Bowden does a superb job of turning all of the stereotypes of the 40k universe on their head with this book. The characters are fleshed-out and complex that have both believable as well as sympathetic personalities.

“Blood Reaver” is the second novel in the “Night Lords” series, which was released in the year 2011. The Night Lords, driven by the hatred they have for the False Emperor, stalk the galaxy’s shadows and eternally look for revenge for the primarch’s death. The dark quest they are on takes them to a fractious alliance with the Red Corsairs, who are only united by a common foe. Together, along with this piratical band of renegades, they take their destructive ways to the fortress: the monastery of the Marines Errant. They look only to bring about death.

This is a great example of what the second novel in a trilogy should be. A bunch of game changing events and some new cast members that takes things in exciting and new directions. The book is brutally fun and was well written.

“Void Stalker” is the third novel in the “Night Lords” series, which was released in the year 2012. Talos, along with the rest of First Claw continue down the dark path, until they cross the alien eldar, who are the Farseers of the Ulthwe craftworld are seeing a major threat in the Night Lords. They are looking to bring the myriad of skeins of fate right back into alignment before their prophecy is able to be fulfilled. The wrath of the ancients is upon them, and Talos reluctantly leads his warriors into battle once again.

Aaron pens a great conclusion to his “Night Lords” books with this one. The story is right to the point and crisp, and will exceed expectations, making this one of the best books some people have read in a while. There are some emotional moments in the book, which is a nice touch for these books.
