I can't do anything special from my phone to hide spoilers so don't read ahead if you haven't read void stalker yet.

So at the very end when "Talos" says he's not Talos and that his name is Decimus. Are we supposed to know who that is? Aaand what's the deal with everyone gathered around talking about the Thirteenth Black crusade? Is this an alternate universe like Lost *SPOILERS* moment where they were already dead? I loved the ending despite being a little bit confused

Nonus was in Blood Reaver.

We don't know for certain that

Similarly, regarding the discussion at the end

OOOOOOOHHH MAH GAH there go my undies getting all wet. I think being so friggin tired while reading it at 2am probably helped me miss what was happening. Thank you brother Lucian and the rest for clearing that up. I wasn't disappointed at all with this book. Too damn great of an ending.

You see, that's exactly what's happening when someone is reading the books with a year gap and a lousy memory. Well, I guess one more reason to reread the trilogy

I guessed that stuff about Decimus as well.

I agree with the rating. It was a pretty good novel. Action packed and everything fit in with the other two novels.

Plus the fact that a newborn is not really interesting to chaos marines. Better to let him grow up a bit to reach a stage conductive to implantation.

Good review. It was an excellent read and exceeded all my expectations. I'm actually worried about starting the Word Bearers trilogy as I know it's going to be a letdown after this kickbutt trilogy from ADB. I need more Chaos PoV books!! I was so desperate I actually read Sigvald (Warhammer fantasy chaos PoV)... man that was a waste of money.

I wouldn't go as far as to say it's the best SF book I've read. But it's in the top 3 of the BL books I've read.

Decimus - No spoilers. I'm just going to say I'm sad as I'm fearing we won't get to read about his exploits... He pretty much appears in the timeline up to the newest fluff... so I guess we won't see him fulfill his eldar prophecy? Unless I'm mistaken and it's been mentioned in some fluff.
