Publisher's Summary

A Space Marine Conquests novel

Supporting the Dark Angels as they battle trauma-scarred T'au, Lieutenant Farren and his Primaris Marines discover their allies have many secrets they'll do anything to conceal....

Listen to it because we've all been dying to know what happens when the Primaris Space Marines and Dark Angels finally meet - and now that story is finally here.

The story: Lieutenant Xedro Farren is a Primaris Marine, stronger and more adept than even the Space Marines his brotherhood is sent to fight alongside. As the Dark Angels and the Primaris Marines fight a trauma-scarred force of T’au hellbent on destroying their former allies, the true quarry becomes clear - the shadowy instigator of a psychic curse that could plunge a string of Imperial planets into madness. As worlds burn in the fires of battle, an unthinkable pact is struck, with the Primaris Marines peeling back layer after layer of deceit to find the appalling truth. Can Farren hope to emerge from this web of lies without losing his honour - or come to that, his life?

A gift from the Library

A lot of people would say that 40k's canon has some smudges and stains here and there. That's fair, but homeboy Phil Kelly takes them and slops it all together to create something fun and compelling. John Banks kills it as per the usual.

Hot Garbage

I thought “Crusade” was the worst WH40K novel ever written, but “War of Secrets” certainly gives it a solid challenge for the title.

Like Crusade this story reads like a commercial for the new miniatures, with a disjointed, barely coherent storyline thrown in. The Space Marines act like idiots on a regular basis.

Worse is Phill Kelly’s technical writing ability. A sophomore in high school could do better. He routinely uses adjectives and metaphors that make no sense in the context. I kept thinking English must be his second language and no one bothered to check the manuscript before it went to publication.

It doesn’t help that John Banks does the narration, easily the worst narrator working for the BL. He has about three voices he routinely uses.
