Fell Cargo: Take to the high seas with this motley crew!

fantasy book reviews science fiction book reviewsWarhammer review Dan Abnett Fell CargoFell Cargo by Dan Abnett

Captian Luka Silvero and his bloody Reivers are the most despicable, cut-throat, greedy sea-wolves of the Old World and they’re just the right stuff to rid the seas of something even more evil: the cursed Butcher Ship. Of course it takes the right incentive of a hefty reward and, for Luka, it’s either sink the Butcher Ship or face his just reward at the end of noose. After all, a buccaneer does have his reputation to think of. Plus there is always the unbreakable pirate code…

I don’t know what it is about pirates, but we can’t help but love them, and Dan Abnett captures the salty ol’ heart of a pirate story in Fell Cargo. So, wrap one fist around a cutlass and the other (unless that one is a hook) around your flint-lock pistol, then prepare to board. Take on other pirates, zombies, vampires, sea-monsters and thrice-damned curses. And you’d better not forget to look out for a dirk in your own back, too. Pray to King Death that you’ll survive to get the treasure.

Yo-ho-ho, it’s a pirate’s life for me!

GREG HERSOM’S addiction began with his first Superboy comic at age four. He moved on to the hard-stuff in his early teens after acquiring all of Burroughs’s Tarzan books and the controversial L. Sprague de Camp & Carter edited Conan series. His favorite all time author is Robert E. Howard. Greg also admits that he’s a sucker for a well-illustrated cover — the likes of a Frazetta or a Royo. Greg live with his wife, son, and daughter in a small house owned by a dog and two cats in a Charlotte, NC suburb. He retired from FanLit in Septermber 2012 after 4.5 years of faithful service but he still sends us a review every once in a while.

  1. pirates? and it’s actually good? count me in! Do you have to know warhammer to read it?

  2. I’ve never played Warhammer or any RPG, but I love the concept behind the Warhammer world. It’s a world on verge or apocolypse, and the mankind’s only hope lies in Empire’s rule, which, many times, is not always the most just and sometimes only the lesser of two evils.
    What I think is cool about the Warhammer books I’ve read is; its a way to enjoy simplistic adventure tales in fairly complex world setting without having to commit to another big epic series of doorstoppers.
    Some of the books aren’t very good but the ones that are, are a blast.
