The IX Series


Prelude to Sorrow


Fight or Die

The task force dispatched to eradicate the Horde menace on far Exordium has failed, and for those left alive, that axiom resounds as never before.

Now marooned – out of time and out of place – the survivors lick their wounds and struggle to recover while the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance. But fate, it seems, isn’t done with the Ninth, and our heroes find themselves forced to mount a last-ditch attempt to end the threat once and for all.

But just how much will they have to sacrifice and what implications might this entail? Will the darkness be vanquished, or will our heroes’ efforts finally signal the beginning of the end of their adventure?

Find out soon in – Prelude to Sorrow – the stunning conclusion to the IX saga.

Taboo


Last week I had the rather delightful experience of delving into a dark and macabre BBC drama entitled, Taboo.
I knew I’d be onto a winner as it involved collaboration between “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight, Ridley Scott of “Alien – Blade Runner – Gladiator – and a shedload of other hits” fame, and Tom Hardy (in the title role), to name a few.

Here’s the scenario:

It’s 1814. James Keziah Delaney is a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what’s left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice. Enemies – especially among the “all-knowing & all-powerful” East India Company – lurk in every shadow and under every rock.

A man with ungodly, terrible secrets, Delaney is forced to navigate increasingly complex waters to avoid a death that just about everyone seems to lust after. Why?

Ah, that begins to emerge in this sinister, brooding, slow burning and gritty drama that shows you the depths some will plunge to in order to protect their interests.

******

Often brutal, sometimes poignant and always gritty, Taboo is utterly original, packed with a stellar cast who blend together perfectly, and the perfect murder mystery to watch...so long as you’re not easily shocked.



As Oliver Twist might say: “Please sir, can I have some more?”
