As with all things I’ve read that Rob has written: the story is simple, but it’s the telling that matters.
-The Founding Fields

Synopsis

The Excoriators seem powerless to protect the small cemetery world of Certus Minor from the berserk World Eaters, but their salvation soon comes from a wholly unexpected quarter...

Following the trajectory of a blood-red comet, the berserk World Eaters blaze a path of destruction across the galaxy in its wake. The small cemetery world of Certus Minor appeals to the Space Marines of the Excoriators Chapter for protection, but the force dispatched to deal with this grim threat is far too small and their losses against the renegades are high. Just as all seems lost, salvation is borne out of legend itself as sinister spectral warriors descend upon this planet of the dead, and the enemies of the Imperium come face to face with those who have already travelled beyond the realm of the living...

Although the novel takes a while to get going, with the pace a little uneven, once you do get into it the pace just flies by at an unstoppable rate.

The biggest draw of the novel is that Rob Sanders has succeeded so well in making the Excoriators such a distinct chapter from their other brethren.

The only problem is that the story gets shoved to one side and you’re left with a whole load of detail.

The descriptive elements are pure Warhammer 40 000 and if you are new to the genre. . .I can imagine that it could throw you a bit. . .
