Also McNeill's descriptions of cosmic phenomina were beautiful.

Ill still read and finish the third one, even if I wasnt that impressed with the second book.

Chalji 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.

Lord of the Night 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.

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.

Fancy giving us some spoilers?

I forgot noting the book is set during M39, 2000 years from the present.

Brother Lucian 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.
