Ha! Called it, thought about it last night and guessed that Gods of Mars would be the title.

Finished Orion: Tears of Isha. I found it a much better mid trillogy book than Lords of Mars. The plot spinning along and thickening, evolving characters and setting the stage for the final book. Orion: Court of Beasts. I never had the same feeling of glacially slow plot progression and feeling of padding like with LoM, a good read which have me eagerly waiting for the final book.

Finished it myself a few minutes ago. I 100% agree, seeing what the Blood Drinkers secret was and the secret behind even that secret was shocking. I think that the special guest, whose identity is pretty obvious and quite awesome, is correct and that one day that "Yes" will come. Or maybe not, maybe the will of the Blood Drinkers is strong enough that all he will ever get is "No".

And the treasure at the heart of the Space Hulk, now that was fantastic. And surprising as hell, I really didn't think it would be something like that. I honestly thought it would be the blueprints for monomolecular blades or the Stormraven gunship or something like that, not what they actually found. Goddamn, I really loved that scene. Especially what was said to the Magos, that was a withering speech and I personally believe it, every word.

Hehe if you wish.

I'll outline two major spoiler areas.

The Blood Drinkers;


The Hulk's Treasure;


Apart from those two areas and some other minor parts the story ends how it says in the 40k compendium. A kill ratio of 53:1 is achieved, both Chapters gain a Strike Cruiser as thanks and the Mechanicus gets some STC material, and the Death of Integrity is destroyed.

Just finished Death of Integrity myself and thought it was brilliant. First half seemed fairly straightforward, but about 3/5 through the book it just takes off and as mentioned previously, ends on an amazing note. The scene at the end with the Spirit of Eternity was just incredible.

Started and finished Lords of Mars today; a cracking read from start to end. I must disagree with you Lucian, it did not feel like the book was filler and I felt that it provided a necessary expansion of the story and moved the plot along to where the final book can reasonably start. Also McNeill's descriptions of cosmic phenomina were beautiful.
