    3. Volk A Novel of Radiant Abomination should have been called Volk A novel of Radiant Boredom I rarely DNF a book If feel if I am stupid enough to pick up a book, then I share some responsibility to finish it This book has caused me to shirk my responsibility Now to be fair, this a sequel to some other novel and there might have been interest had I been involved with the story bear in mind the book nowhere really states that it is a sequel This time the events occur in early 1930 s Germany The S [...]

    4.

    7. Sequel to his previous EUTOPIA but you don t need to have read that first to get into this, though you will want to search it out after finishing it Fucking amazing
