I finished it last week, and it was a struggle to get through. As
said, there's a particular encounter with the Inquisition that that was just plain dumb, and the final set piece just didn't sit right, with the tricksy AL being out-tricked by someone trickier.

|Doelago||I felt the first half of the book started off very strong and there were plenty of interesting stuff going on, but after that it fell apart for me. Especially the way they escaped from that one encounter bothered me so bad and the ending felt super rushed. Definitely worth reading, but I myself do not regard it as being anything above average. But I am interested to see what they intend to do with the ending.|

Finished it. Definitely takes some unexpected turns and twists. Definitely did not see -that- comming! A worthy Alpha Legion novel.
And not one 'I am Alpharius'.

It's a novel about the sneakiest and most oblique of traitors, written by Rob Sanders, master of the twisty-turny tale. It's sure to make your head spinÖ
In the hostile universe of the 41st millennium, where allegiances are ever fickle, few of the Emperorís sons are more difficult to understand or predict than the Alpha Legion. Branded traitor since the Heresy, their motives and actions have always been shrouded in mystery. Alpha Legionnaire Occam the Untrue leads his warband out of its hunting grounds in the Maelstrom on an epic quest for salvation, not just for himself, but for his whole Legion. With the forces of the Inquisition snapping at their heels, Occam and his followers must use all their guile and considerable martial prowess as they make their way to the cold heart of the galaxy, to a confrontation that no one, least of all Occam himself, could have foreseen.
Written by Rob Sanders
