ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING READ.
This is my first Warhammer 40K series book and must say Abnett’s story telling is superb. The book is fast paced, but between times you gather bits and pieces of the Imperium of Man and the long distant past of humanity. The action is soaring, the gorge ravaging, and the gothic-like descriptions melding scifi and fantasy are literally out of this world. I will not, however, proceed with the suggested order of the novels by The Blacklibrary, as the following books are not written by Abnett. The Warhammer 40K universe is so vast I’m actually skipping to the Eisenhorn series by, nonetheless, Abnett. A must read Space Opera.
Sadly there’s no Kindle version. And the iBooks version is $15, which I find ludicrous.
