Phospex is pretty much the 40k version of napalm, excessively toxic as well. Able to burn under water even.

Yeah it's a planet killer. It will just keep on burning and burning, only the void will stop the flames from carrying on. I think they said 1 of them would render a planet inhabitable for five years, where as the Ultramarines drop around 18 or near enough.

I think its interesting that we now have a horrific weapon that could do so much damage. The reason I think this is interesting is because Dorn condemned Curze for simply executing traitors and yet the astartes have been known to do things as bad as killing every living thing on a planet.

I saw that The Purge is still available. It's really weird to see LE-novellas taking such long time selling out. Perhaps people have caught up on BL's bullshit and wont fall into that shit anymore.

I finished it last week. I must say that I hated the ending. Also, reading it on my tablet was kind of annoying due to the layout. The novel jumps back and forth through time. Perhaps in print or on a different reader these sections are seperated better, but on mine, we'd often jump between times from one sentence to the next. There were occasions when I was confused as to which time frame I was in.
Anyway, this may be more an issue with my reader than the novel. Although I must say that the whole writing mechanic of jumping back and forward through time every two f****ing paragraphs is getting old. Maybe it's not happening as much as I think it does. I may well have just happened to read a few books in succession which use this mechanic and as a result it seems more common than it really is.

Anyway, it's an OK story with a sucky ending (although clearly other people disagree, which is fine)

Read it on my kindle, had no issues with the time jumps (barely recall any, the writing was very fluid IMO).

Why did the ending suck? Because he became a reformed Word Bearer?
