Carcharadons: Red Tithe by Robbie MacNiven (Book Review)

Shadowhawk's Shade

The Warhammer 40,000 universe is incredibly vast in terms of its scope and the material it thus covers.

What I like about this format: This structure really does make it easy on voters. One vote and done. Also, we’re getting close to breaking the all-time voting record after less than three days. That’s wonderful! The best thing about…
