A great way to pay homage to those lost.

This book took what would have been a relatively uneventful story of human suffering and gave those lost sailors a chance at being remembered as individuals instead of just Franklin’s crew.
I enjoyed the spin on Inuit mythology and I found that including a monster breathed harrowing adventure into what otherwise would have been a tragic but boring story about a slow death.

Now if only I could figure out what the rat teeth were about…

Enjoyable but light on cosmic horror.

Both of these novellas share a similar plot device, a person exposed to something causing them to become obsessed with discovering more about it, leading them on a path to their inevitable fates.
Although a common trope in cosmic horror, these stories lacked the existential dread so crucial to the genre.
I’d recommended these stories as they are both very entertaining, but the hype man at the beginning and all the online reviews touting this as a work of cosmic horror tainted my experience and left me wanting.

Books good. Advertising sucked.

This book was good and I recommend reading it. However there were some elements of this story that seemed overly convenient to the point of being plot armour, and other ideas that could have been better fleshed out.
The climax of the book was a little underwhelming because everything just suddenly worked out too perfectly compared to the struggle the characters had to go through to reach the climax.
However it has really added a lot to the story of the flayed ones and I am excited to see where it goes next.

Very good way to finish the trilogy.

I enjoyed this book. However one of the aspects of the first and second stories I enjoyed were the various mutants and paranormal phenomena present in the metro and on the surface.
This story contains basically none of those. This story is entirely about people and follows an almost biblical storyline.
All in all a very good book but it lacks the sci-fi elements of the first two.

Worth listening to for neophyte and veteran Warhammer fans

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was a great choice. His range works well with the gruff nature of the space marines. He also did a good job with the servants of Nurgle.
As for the writing itself, I found parts of it a little jarring and unrealistic. An example of this is all the times space marines and soldiers engaged in close combat with demons or chaos space marines stopped to exclaim about the Emperor or Guilliman.
It felt a little awkward and overdone.
Otherwise a great story!
