excellent sci-fi, superb space fantasy.
I haven't played the Warhammer in nearly a decade and was never into the lore deeply. I was however, a chaos space marine player and I'm loving the origins so far.
Once you've figured out Astartes is synonymous with space marine, it makes sense but i can see 40k newcomers being confused. I had to Google images a few things, but alot of new concepts to me are explained very well. an example being the remberancers and megarachnids
I love the pacing, Locan's internal conflicts and superb storytelling in general. it really does get quite tense and the mystery is compelling.
