Love this cover, just started reading this series and enjoying it so far. Are all the stories interlinked like the other path novels?

That kinda looks like a corrupted Elrond, as portrayed by Hugo Weaving :D

Cool stuff, but they need to come out with another Harlequin novella/book!

It's currently out on the iBooks store. I'm about a quarter of the way through and really enjoying it soon. Guessing this means available as an enoki from blacklibrary on Friday and they'll start shipping the hard copies at about the same time.

I dont know that this ever got the time it deserves, but it's a very fun read. Vect is great throughout, all the characters from the series (still living...) are entertaining to read, and its just great paced fun. Read over 2 evenings, couldnt put it down really.

A great capstone for the whole story (including the shorts and such) and just...fun. :D

I cannot rate highly enough the 3 books in this series for some serious fluffage background on the DE.
I especially liked it because I was then able to scare the heck out of my ork loving grandson when I told him what Vect got up to in his sanctuary with those archons that displeased him mwahaha :-)

I think I had seen a ebook package deal, but a full omnibus would be very welcome indeed!

Should be out late January, yeah. Amazon lists the two editions (UK & US) for mid February and mid March, and BL release them a bit earlier themselves.

Hah looked it up, gruesome art!

I wish it contained the full story with all the shorts however.

Nothing to indicate that it doesn't. The Path of the Eldar Omnibus included various shorts, too.

Oh really? The cover just listed the 3 novels, but I would love to proven wrong, I'd pick it up for sure.

The omnibus covers "never" list the short stories.

The Night Lords omnibus doesn't, neither do The Empire or Honour Imperialis. The Salamanders omnibus is chock-full with short stories (it includes the whole of the Tome of Fire anthology, iirc), but only lists the three novels at the front.
This is par of the course, really.

Hah, thats wicked. Despite just picking up Archon, I'll grab that omnibus for sure then!

The Omnibus includes:

The Treasures of Biel-Tanigh
Midnight on the Street of Knives
Path of the Renegade
Path of the Incubus
Bellathonis and the Shadow King
Path of the Archon

I'm kinda annoyed that The Masque of Vyle is a hardback novella again. Same problem as with the Soul Drinkers novella - the hardback is too large next to the omnibuses, and wouldn't fit into my shelf on the same row.
