5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best game guides ever!, June 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have literally gone through dozens of game guides through the years and this guide for The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is easily one of the best I have ever seen. It is loaded with information about everything - weapons, armor, bestiary, achievements, and more. To top it all off everything is incredibly well organized.
This guide will hold your hand from beginning to end if you want it to or you can just use it to get past that place where you're stuck. No matter where you go down this games fantastic branching story line this guide will be there for you. It is even more useful than the games Wiki guide, yes - it's that good!


Only in Death (Gaunt's Ghosts)
Only in Death (Gaunt's Ghosts)
by Dan Abnett
Edition: Paperback
18 used & new from $4.48

5.0 out of 5 stars The final installment of "The Lost" arc does not disappoint., October 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Dan Abnett finally manages to put the Ghosts in a haunted house and it pays off in spades. Huge battles, blood and guts, all are here with a significant creep factor in the mix that creates an impressive atmosphere. Like the other arc climaxes in the series(Necropolis, Sabbat Martyr) Only In Death is strong stuff from begining to end and makes for some great reading.
Eleven books in the series up to this point, still great, still interseting, still vital. Truly an impressive lot, all deserving to be read and enjoyed.


Deff Skwadron (Warhammer 40,000 Graphic Novel)
Deff Skwadron (Warhammer 40,000 Graphic Novel)
by Gordon Rennie
Edition: Paperback
3 used & new from $234.86

5.0 out of 5 stars Orky in the best sense of the word., August 31, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Deff Skwadron is a small, black and white comic featuring Ork fly boyz from the Warhammer 40,000 universe. It contains several short stories, you can crush it in a half-hour, and it is brilliant! The writer and illustrator have a firm grip on what makes orks so fantastic as they have captured it on these pages. High speed destruction at all or anyone's cost is the rule of the day and it gets taken to the nth degree in hilarious fashion. It is a blast to read and a steal if you can land it for under 10 bucks. If you like Orks and the wanton destruction that follows in their wake then this is your bible.


The Armour of Contempt (Gaunt's Ghosts Novels)
The Armour of Contempt (Gaunt's Ghosts Novels)
by Dan Abnett
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
49 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Faithful entry into the Gaunt's Ghosts series., August 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Armour of Contempt has the Ghosts, all of them this time, heading to Gereon to thwart the Chaos threat. The story gets split up between Gaunt with the Tanith regiment and a young member of the Ghosts who ends up being conscripted into another unit. While the stuff with Gaunt is excellent as is par for the course, it was the the story of the young and inexperienced Ghost in an unfamiliar unit that shined a new light on the grim war of the future.
It is this kind of thing that makes the series so strong. Dan Abnett continues to try something new with each book in the series and whether you like it or not it is quite often what makes the highs so high and the lows so low.
If you are a fan of the Warhammer 40k universe the Gaunt's Ghosts books will not disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gaunt's Ghosts saga continues., August 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While this was a worthy entry in the series it was not as captivating as some of the other books. The story starts strong right out of the gate and then dwindles somewhat until the finish. The last book "Traitor General" really shook things up and this story was probably necessary to help get things back on track. I still found this to be an enjoyable read and look forward to finding out what happens next to the Ghosts.


Traitor General (Gaunt's Ghosts Novels)
Traitor General (Gaunt's Ghosts Novels)
by Dan Abnett
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
53 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gaunt's Ghosts saga continues to evolve, July 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Traitor General changes things up a bit by breaking off a small group from the Tannith First and Only and sending them on a suicide mission to the chaos infested planet of Gereon. Focusing on this small group was a change of pace and seemed a bit odd at first but I quickly warmed up to the concept. There are very few lulls in the action and there are numerous moments of high tension. It was also interesting to see how chaos forces operated from their perspective, something that had not been done before in the series. Another strong showing in the Gaunt's Ghosts series loaded with outstanding military/sci-fi action from the Warhammer 40k universe!


Sabbat Martyr (Gaunt's Ghosts)
Sabbat Martyr (Gaunt's Ghosts)

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Sabbat Martyr is a damn good book!, June 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sabbat Martyr closes up "The Saint" arc in the Gaunt's Ghosts books with undeniable power and grace! The story is as strong as they have come in the series while the emphasis on city fighting make this a real page turner. Several loose ends are tied up while a few new threads open up. A fitting climax in the series to this point, Warhammer 40k/military Sci-fi does not get any better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sixth installment in the Gaunt's Ghosts series moves forward at a steady pace., May 16, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found Straight Silver to be an enjoyable read and faithful continuation of the series. That being said, it did not have as many stunning or visceral moments as some of the others but it is still very good. If you like WH40k or Dan Abnett this book will not disapoint.

The Guns of Tanith (Warhammer 40,000: Gaunt's Ghosts)
by Dan Abnett
Edition: Paperback
26 used & new from $6.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Another well crafted Ghost's novel., April 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Guns of Tanith is the fifth in the Gaunt's Ghost's series and trucks along at the same raucus pace as the last two novels. Dan Abnett seems to have really hit his stride with the series in Necropolis and has not let up since. The fighting is fast and plentiful with the strong characters really tying it all together. This novel has furious action and notable depth for a great read! Warhammer 40k Imperial Guard/military sci-fi fans should check this out.


Honour Guard (Gaunt's Ghosts)
Honour Guard (Gaunt's Ghosts)

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaunt's Ghost's series conitinues to deliver the goods!, March 24, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In contrast to the two preceeding books, Honour Guard jumps right into the fray at the get-go. Even though I am only four books into the series I am impressed with how each book is built around its own concept. Many series at this point have began recycling things to a degree but not so here. In this story we'll see that the impressive Ibram Gaunt is not without a few charactor flaws of his own as he continues to fight the Sabbat Worlds Crusade. This time the Ghost's will travel with members of the Pardus tank regiment and a few locals to the shrine of Saint Sabbat. The road trip style story is cool and the addition of the tank fighting brought in an interesting element. Rack up another one for Mr. Abnett, this is a great Imperial Guard novel!
