Default Has anyone read 7th Retribution?

I came across an article stub about it on lexicanum. The plot sounds ridiculous:

Well I don't know what happened but actual reviews of non HH-BL books have become exceedingly rare so it's all I have to go on.

I dunno, but that whole page about this supposed assassin just reeks of fanfic. Very poor fanfic at that.

I don't dislike the genesis of the Temple. Seems sci-fi-y and grimdark. Y'know, one of BL's major draws since its creation.

However, one does not simply battle a Grand Master Culexus while dodging fire from a Grand Master Vindicare and a wealth of other foes without Bobss raising an eyebrow.

If I can find a cheap copy online I'll still get it.

You see, the whole owning if the other temple masters is what made me think it was bullshit. That just sounds awful.
