Finished The Unforgiven just now. Quite a good book and one that nicely brings all the characters full circle, and has plenty of great battle scenes and plot surprises that the reader will enjoy.

But that ending.... OH. MY. GOD!! I NEVER saw that coming. EVER. That reveal near the end propelled this book from Very Good to Great in my eyes. And because of the magnitude of this reveal, and out of respect to Gav Thorpe for this bold move, I will not reveal it here. You'll have to read the book to find out.

Review coming soon.

The Death Guard and Typhus both play important roles in the book, and Typhus actually appears in the final third. Cypher surrendered himself for a very good reason; read the book to find out that reason. Some characters die, some do not, same as any book really.

There is a very big void battle, and it is really really good yes. No ships of note die though, just nameless ones. Lots of them though.

I'll never read the book - But I am curious about the reveal.

Could you pm it to me?

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

Sorry gentlemen, but you'll have to read the books, or wait for somebody else with an early copy who will spoil it.

Now that sounds epic. I am starting to wonder if this is the opening shot for the 40k end times that have been hinted at. After all Cypher being in the hands of the Dark Angels have been unthinkable for many years.

It isn't. Cypher being in the hands of the Dark Angels has a reason that while definitely momentous, is not the opening salvo of the 40k Time of Ending. As for it being unthinkable, the story references this and reveals something quite amusing and surprising on that subject.

Small things like this I will answer.

No. And the novel very plainly shows that Cypher doesn't just not unsheath the sword, he can't. Nobody can. Except for one man...
