It was a good enough book or omnibus of books actuallyand it was written well, as Dan Abnett always writes. They’re skilled professionals of the highest calibre, and Dan takes time to make each of them distinctive. If you’re going to read it, i suggest reading “Eisenhorn” first, because this book is a sequel of sorts to that text, and you’ll understand this book a lot better if you read that one first.
