So… Sky Lord. The last and possibly strangest sci-fi fighting fantasy book! My copy of Sky Lord is in almost mint condition – there is a fairly good reason for this as it is widely regarded as being one of the worst in the whole range. My stats were:
In this story I play a gun for hire who has been chosen for a mission to stop L’Bastin who used to work for the king before he started playing around with genetic engineering and got fired. He is now breeding a race of super warriors to take over a few planets. He must be stopped!
Off I head in my spaceship and have a choice of travelling in the time dimension or travelling in the light dimension (yes, this is Sky Lord!). I go for the latter and I am attacked by a Fahbad Redneck – I manage to destroy him but fall out of light warp. I then spot a black space station and decide to investigate. Before I can dock I am attacked by a drone but I make short work of that before boarding.
When I arrive on the station I am greeted by a human cleaner. I shake his hand. At this point the cleaner turns into a bright orange blob and eats me piece by piece! I should have known, he did have orange eyes after all!
