Aargh, they did it again! This series has a bad habit of writing only half a story. I honestly believe that some authors simply can't fit a whole story in less than 300 pages. The real pity here is that there is a genuinely good story here if only they gave it room to breathe a little. Once again we see pieces of the crusade confronted by the current state of the Imperium but we don't get the time for more than just lip service.
The performance was average at best. We spend a decent amount if time with a small squad of marines from various big name chapters and the of the them are virtually indistinguishable- Even just showing down their conversations would be nice, but we seemed bound and determined to blow through this half of the story as far as possible.
On the plus side there are some fun action pieces, and over all the characters act reasonable. The good parts make it that much more frustrating that it gets cut short.
This has been my favorite of the series so far. I love how it highlights the need for and the lethality of the Death Watch. And I couldn't keep myself from grinning every time the Blood Angel gets into combat.
