Interested in what you think, this is one I am tempted to get. The list of authors though... Ben Counter is a plus and Peter Fehervari is eleven pluses out of ten, and Mark Clapham's IG novel was great. But the rest, I either haven't read them or I have and it wasn't memorable or good.

Finished it. A bit over average, some of the stories was good and had plenty of character. Others was mostly bolter porn. But the one with the white scar and his cyber eagle really stood out, a really characterful story.

I give it a solid 7/10. At first i didnt think there was an overarching narrative, but it all comes by at the last story. And mindful of the upcomming Deathwatch game, its clearly tailored as an introduction to the plot in it. And I would expect to see a tie in novella followup. Just like the tiein novella for the assassin game Execution force.

Definitely another homerun for Fehervari.
My take on his story:

I noticed that Branathar have a similar 'problem' as the commisar in Fire caste. While it was a neat take, i do hope he wont keep reusing this trope.
