In the aftermath of the Dropsite Massacre at Isstvan V, a battered and bloodied force of Iron Hands, Raven Guard and Salamanders regroups on a seemingly insignificant death world. Fending off attacks from all manner of monstrous creatures, the fractious allies find hope in the form of human refugees fleeing from the growing war and cast adrift upon the tides of the warp.

I enjoyed the writing and characters, but I feel the events of the book feel like a self contained story. That said, I have been wrong about just that in the past.

With news of Horus' treachery spreading across the galaxy, the Great Crusade grinds to a halt as the primarchs and their Legions decide where their loyalty lies - with the Emperor or with the rebel Warmaster. The Dark Angels, too, face a time of testing, both among the stars and on their home world, Caliban. Luther, once Lion El'Jonson's trusted second-in-command, now languishes as an exile in all but name while his master struggles to thwart the traitors' advance upon the forge world Diamat.

Unlike some, I enjoyed the continuation of the tale told in Descent of Angels and felt this added a lot of depth to the period.

Unfortunately however, the voices for several characters, most notably Nemiel, seriously detracted from the overall experience. This was a real shame, as they made the characters in question seem feeble and childlike despite being Astartes.

Overall enjoyable, however perhaps one you could read to preserve the characters image

I didn't know what I was getting myself into with this book and chose it mainly for the British narration, as many finance focused titles hold advice related to operating in the states.

As it turns out, this book is pure gold and holds value for people regardless of location, level of wealth and area of business. I will be working through the rest of his catalogue as quickly as I can.
