Excellent stuff
Dark plot and intriguing characters. Morose and horrific in places but the lead character steers us with a lingering degree of optimism
Wonderful

a great addition, fully takes the story and runs it in for the satisfying finale. However I felt it kept losing something with the addition of new characters meant the voices portrayed became silly in the attempt to differentiate. But that didn't stop me enjoying it as a whole. Next book please

A wonderfully engaging read, excitement, action, political shenanigans. An emersive plot that hooks you in. Whether a fan of 40k or not this is a sci-fi blockbuster that stands head and shoulders above its contemporaries
