Damnation of Pythos 4/10
Didn't really enjoy this.
The plot was boring. How many times has this been done now? so predictable. The sub plots were boring, didn't go anywhere or opportunities were missed. I don't think it added anything to the overall heresy story line.
The action scenes however were pretty good and I would say amongst the best in the series.
Not a fan of the writing style in this either. Poor quality opposing metaphors and repetitive unnecessary descriptions, yes, I get it, the warp is a big swirly thing that's dangerous, give it a rest already. You could probably cut the book by 20 30 pages of repeated warp description.
Not sure why this was part of the series myself. The story could have been told in Tales of the Heresy II if they wanted to tell it. Remove all the unnecessary storyline and descriptive work and you could easily tell it as a short story.
