Im about halfway through Death of Integrity and it paints a quite intriguing picture of both the Novamarines and the Blood Drinkers. As much as the Novamarines thinks themselves alike the Ultramarines, their soul is quite startlingly different. And for the Blood Drinkers, they may be one of the most successful chapters spawned from the Blood Angels in dealing with the Flaw, being such a visceral embodiment of their given chapter name, painted in its full and terrible sanguine detail.

Guy Haley impresses yet again and demonstrating he handles space marines just as well as the Imperial Guard.

Phew... So glad this is shaping up to be a good book. The Space Marine Battle books really need a good win after Death of Antagonis. I much prefer the Battle books that explore successor chapters over well established ones. The Excoriators were such a breath of fresh air to read about.

Same here, it's much more interesting to read about a newly fleshed out Chapter like the Excoriators or the Blood Drinkers than it is about the Blood Angels or the Ultramarines, at least in my opinion.

Hopefully this early ebook release means the physical copies will be released early, my copy of The Death of Integrity will arrive and I can get reading. My Lords of Mars copy will take longer but it'll be worth the wait, I hope.

I am 86% through DoI, and it has taken some quite unexpected twists and turns. The Blood Drinkers have a truly terrible secret to them. I sure recognized a certain character appearing!


Edit: Finished DoI, a quite worthy read. Puts a few obscure lore threads into the light in the finale. But it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Blood Drinkers in particular, given the ending and the earlier twist mentioned. I forgot noting the book is set during M39, 2000 years from the present.

Finished Lords of Mars. I found it below average. Sure Priests of Mars was interesting, but Lords of Mars moves at a glacial pace plotwise. So MUCH filler and cliffhangering for book 3 in the series. When I had finished book 1, I honestly thought the big things would be comming in the follow up, especially as I thought it was a 2 book series. This series is an example of truly unneeded padding to make a full trillogy of books.

Edit: I came to wonder if the early release of this batch of ebooks was timed to coincide with the imminent release of the Space hulk remake? Sure its Blood Angels in the game, but the depictions of moving through a Space Hulk in Death of Integrity really had me psyched up for the game itself. Just 1 hour to unlock.

There's a third book?! I thought it was a duology. Now I have to wait even longer to find out how this story ends, damnation.

The third one is called Gods of Mars.
Yeah, I thought it was a duology too.

I'm almost finished Priests of Mars, so the release of LoM was great timing as far as I was concerned as I'm really enjoying the switch from bolter porn. I feel McNeill has a great insight into the AdMech. You have dimmed my enthusiasm for it somewhat though.

Well, I look forward to hear your oppinion on it. It wasnt a truly bad book, just as already stated, plot moving too slowly and being excessively padded to fill out a whole book.
