Superb book, can only echo the earlier sentiments. This is one of the best Gaunts Ghosts yet. Dan Abnett have honed his writting to absolute perfection.

It is really interesting to see the interplay between the ghosts and the 3 Space Marines attached to the invasion force.

Yes, I will be buying this book.

But was it CP's great, enthusiastic review or the line "battles, babes and booz" that swayed me...

Now that I think about it, there is one little niggle about Salvations Reach. The book could have used a page or two more, showing the results of the whole deception. Felt unfinished.

Gaunt had been involved with Silver Guard in the past, on balhaut.
