Publisher's Summary

Deep in Imperium Nihilus, Blood Angels Chief Librarian Mephiston and his comrades are drawn into battle with a cabal of Thousand Sons sorcerers – with worlds at stake and hidden truths threatening to overwhelm him, this is Mephiston's darkest hour....

Experience a battle of psychic might in the Dark Imperium and witness Mephiston taking on his greatest challenges ever, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Having fought during the devastation of Baal, Mephiston and a cohort of Blood Angels are drawn by cryptic visions to a war-torn world on the cusp of the Great Rift. Here, the sorcerers of the Thousand Sons seek to unite nine Silver Towers and bring about a ritual that will empower their master, the daemon-primarch Magnus. The ritual must be prevented, lest the entire sub-sector be cast into Chaos. Mephiston faces a challenge like no other, of his strength and his will, confronting a hidden truth that threatens to expose him to his darkest fears.

I loved my first look at Mephiston

I realized that this isn't the first Mephiston book, but I jumped in here anyways, and found that I was still able to follow and enjoy the story. Meph is an interesting character, Magnus and Co are always fun in a 40k novel and the intrigue was enjoyable.

Not every 40k book holds my attention, but this one had me looking firward to my.work commute for several days. The Emperor Protects ;)

Great Story to Finish the Mephiston Trilogy!

This story brings a end to this trilogy in a great way, albeit a bit sad towards the end. (It's foreshadowed heavily in the other books, but still does the Blood Angels proud.) Richard Reed is BRILLIANT in is reading of 40K books and does another great job!

Constantly on the edge

This book really had me constantly on the edge of my seat a true thrill from beginning to end it constantly keeps you captivated and wondering what will happen next. The narration that was done and the formance played by him were as expected very easy to distinguish the individual characters and understand and feel the emotion of the situation in the setting that is before you. He did a very good job at being able to make it easy to understand what's going on despite how complex certain things may get closer towards the end. The author does a great job at being very descriptive of the settings our champion finds himself in and this paints a picture that most would get lost in the attempt.

Overall top notch performance top notch writing this will have you on the edge of your seat, it is a great 3rd and final book.
