More importantly though the novel offers closure on the series and while those looking for a happy ending will be disappointed (come on this IS the Soul Drinkers we are talking about here) the conclusion is powerfully poignant and very memorable.

Synopsis

The Soul Drinkers have been captured by the Imperial Fists, who intend to see them put on trial on the Phalanx, the Fists' vast space fortress. Inside, one of Iktinos' faithful breaks under interrogation and reveals the location of a vault hidden under Selaaca. An Imperial Fists squad opens up an ancient vault below the planet's surface.

Dreary cover art, generic typography and appalling, mechanical proof-reading that compounds words. . .all are evidence of a level of disrespect that’ll galls those devotees to have followed this story from the outset.

I also found myself wondering about the exact size and dimensions of the ‘Phalanx’ itself, not a great thing to be wondering when you really should be well into the book.
