We start out with why the Black Templars really hate the greenskins. I'm not a big fan of the Black Templars, but actually them in this one. I also appreciated that we had some good non-Space Marines in this one. Enjoyed the storyline and the expected big finale
1) I am a big fan of the W40K universe, and have picked up every piece of fiction for it since Ian Watson's first books.
2) I also really appreciate well crafted writing.
If you are only looking for a book set in the 40K universe or are using it as source material, and thus don't care much about the quality of your prose, then by all means, buy this book. There is a wealth of background information, including Legion/Chapter/Regiment names for much of the Armageddon conflict.
If, however, you are looking for writing at least adequate to the task of suspension of disbelief, look alsewhere. Many sentences look like a trip to the thesaurus, and the same grandiose descriptions show up time and time again with different words. The editing, sadly, is not transparent, with missing words, dangling prepositions, and sentences that don't start with a capital letter.
The charactes are hackneyed (while that's not necessarily the the kiss of death in a 40K novel, where certain stereotypes are expected, I like a little originality), single dimensional, given to bouts of extreme emotion without apparent provocation, and "think" things they could not possibly know for the sake of exposition.
The story-line is actually not bad (if you can get through the writing), and different perspectives give you an interesting look at the conflict from various angles.
This wasn't enough to save it for me, however, and a quarter of the way into it I was wondering how I was going to choke down the remainder.
I expected it to be in rough condition but his takes the cake. If you want the book order it new.
