    The Soul Drinkers saga is one of Black Library’s long standing series covering the trials of a space marine chapter who were loyal to the Emperor but fought the Imperium Being nihilistic grim even by the standards of Warhammer 40000 and willing to mix up the status uo of the universe it has stood out amongst Black Librar

    I got the feeling while I was reading False Gods that there was no happy ending in store for Loken and his allies There was no way that he could win no way he could break free of Horus and the Sons of Horus no way that I w

    A fitting end to the Soul Drinker's legacy I didn't honestly know how this series would end Counter has crafted something amazing with their series of books and shown how a 'modern' chapter of space marines can fall from grace I liked how it all came together in this book Everything was revealed and the final strands were pulled together to show how everyone was manipulated Final confrontations abounded characters tested and most

    Hard to review as it needs as this is the last in a series about the legendary 'Soul Drinkers' Space Marine chapter the first section of this novel is basically a trial which seems to take in a lot that must have been set in place i

    Wow Just wow A drumheads style introspection of elements of the 40K setting seldom deeply looked at Heroism horror and humanity This book was tremendous in terms of characterization Counter channels David Gemmell in how beloved characters meet their fate I didn't want the book to end I will miss those people I came to know over the course of the four novel series Very very bittersweet Even in the grim darkne

Marine Chapter as the once noble Soul Drinkers now Chaos tainted renegades and heretics are put on trial for their crimes against the Imperium But dark forces are stirring and even this gathering of might may not be enough to guard against Phalanx was an absolutely amazing conclusion to the Soul Drinkers series From start to end I was at the edge of my seat with the varying plotlines all coming to an end The action was fantastic as usual and it was awesome getting to see Mr Counters version of Chaos againsince we didn t get it in the since the 3rd book The way he writes Chaosnot Chaos Space Marines per say is absolutely amazing He captures the over the top horror in an astounding way which many other BL authors do as well However he is the only author I have read as of yet that captures how truly weird for lack of a better word maybe uirky Thanks for the word Abhinav Chaos isMy fanaticism with Chaos aside the story was amazing The friction of the various parties on board the Phalanx during the Soul Drinkers trial was absolutely amazing and I LOVED the flash back bits that gave us a little story of the Soul Drinkers and those involved in their trial The Iron Knights siding with the Soul Drinkers was also an amazing extra that I did NOT see coming Couple that with how their imprisonment is effecting the Soul Drinkers from Luko to Sarpedon was phenomenal to readAfter the whole trial ordeal came to a stunning and unexpected conclusion the story became absolute gold for mewhat really brought it from 4 to 5 stars The Soul Drinkers valient and defiant last stand was awesome to read about Getting to see of the Howling Griffons Iron Knights Angels Sanguine and the Imperial Fists was awesome and when Daenyathos trachery was truly revealed oh man it hit me like a trainAll of THAT going on the Phalanx Unknownfor a second or two to the Imperial Fists Oh manThe last halfor so detailing Sarpedon s hunt for the traitors and the Imperial Fist s defense was amazing I have never really been a Imperial Fists fan as the always struck me as boring yellow non codexy Smurfsand I could not have been wrong I really liked the bits from the Imperial Fists perspectiveNow the ending was beautiful I loved it The intensity of the final battle aboard the Phalanx was amazingly written The action was breathtaking and I really didn t feel the usual They re Space Marines of course they are going to win which was awesomeBoth the Imperial Fists and Co as well as Sarpedon s final battles were amazing And I cannot express in words how much I loved the Ending Especially the VERY end The departure of the Soul Drinkers and their inclusion in the memorial aboard the Phalanx was again for lack of a better word beautifulI am really going to miss reading about all of my Soul Drinkers friends and I can only hope we get some in the series Be it preuel or seuel I will love every secondCold and Fast Soul DrinkersPS READ THE NOVELLA DAENYATHOS otherwise the book won t make too much

Phalanx the great star fort of the Imperial Fists is playing host to Space Marines from half a dozen Chapters alongside Inuisitors Sisters of Battle and agents of the Adeptus Mechanicus They have come together to witness the end of a Space 5 stars is insufficient to convey how good this book isThe Soul Drinkers are on trial for the crimes they committed in the first 5 books They are disarmed and isolated on the Imperial Fists fortress monastery spaceship the Phalanx and their situation has never been grimThe book opens with some typos and some confusion Wasn t Borganor of the Howling Griffons Maybe I m illiterate The editor auto replaced chaos with Chaos wout differentiating insanity and the Ruinous Powers Sloppy sloppy but this seems to be a problem with all ebooksOver and over I ve praised Ben Counter s writing But for the record some of the battles in this book are so over the top so to correctly use an overworked hyperbole epic words do fail sometimes Gethsemar and Daviks charged into the heart of the library labyrinth at the same time charging in from two directions to catch Sarpedon off guardSarpedon was never off guard Seriously though this book is amazingLuko slid a hand into one of his lightning claw gauntlets Its weight felt tremendous and not just because Luko hadn t yet donned the power armour that would help compensate for its size I used to dream he said to Salk of all this ending peacefully At least I told myself an execution is not a battle But there is one last battle now You would have thought I d have learned by now that there is always one last battle Captain said Salk I hate it said Luko Fighting Bloodshed I have come to hate it I have lied about this for a long time Sergeant Salk but there hardly seems much point now I can barely believe you are saying these things captain I know I disgust myself too sometimes No captain said Salk You don t understand You hate war but you fight it because you know you must There is nothing to disgust in that Sometimes I take pride or even pleasure in it and I take that and carry it with me to bring me through the worst of it But without that I do not know how I could fight You are braver than I Captain Luko Well said Luko that s one way of looking at it Let s make our execution a little interesting brother said SalkLuko clamped one of his greaves around his left leg Amen to that brother Did you ever think you d read about a Space Marine who had tired of war I didn t Explain said Varnica As you would to a layman Think upon it brother said Gethsemar Here Space Marine fights Space Marine There is nothing new about that But will it be the final time I think not replied Varnica Then you begin to see our point What is a Space Marine He is a man yes but he is something far He is told that he is far from the moment he is accepted into his Chapter when he is little than a child His earlier memories may not even survive his training He may conceive in his own mind of no time but one where he was superior to any human being What might result from a mind so forged He has no doubt and no fear replied Varnica Such alteration of a man s mind is necessary to create the warriors the Imperium needs I see it as a sacrifice we make We give up the men we might have become to instead serve as Adeptus Astartes If you believe this is a mistake commander then I would be compelled to differ with you Ah but there it is Do you see Librarian Varnica It is true that what we do to our minds to make us Space Marines is as necessary as teaching us to shoot But what sin is locked into us through such treatment Brutality said Varnica Many times Space Marines have gone too far in punishing the Emperor s enemies and ordinary men and woman have suffered as a result Brutality is a necessity said Gethsemar A few thousand dead here and there mean nothing compared to the millions spared through the intimidation of our foes that our potential for brutality allows No it is a far deeper sin of which I speak something not so far removed from corruption Corruption is a strong word said Varnica folding his arms and straightening up The threat was clear Then what is it It is pride replied Gethsemar A Space Marine does not just think he is superior to the ordinary citizens of the Imperium He thinks whether his conscious mind accepts it or not that he is superior to other Space Marines too We all have our way of doing things do we not Would we all resist any attempt to change us though violence may be the only route doing so can take So prideful we are that Space Marines will never stop killing Space Marines For every Horus Heresy or Badab War there are a thousand blood duels and trials of honour brought about by our inability to back down That is the real enemy we face here The Soul Drinkers were turned from the Imperium by pride It is pride that motivates us in destroying them for all we talk of justice Pride is the enemy Pride will kill us Varnica thought about this Throne knows we all have our moments he said But the mind of a Space Marine is a complicated thing Can such a simple thing as pride really be its key And from the way you speak commander I would imagine you have a solution Oh no protested Gethsemar The Sons of Sanguinius all accept that we are doomed A Space Marine s destructive pride is the only thing keeping us all fighting and we are the only thing keeping the Imperium from the brink No it is our way to observe our in fighting for the death throes they are to understand what we truly are before the end comes Varnica smiled grimly For all your gilt and finery Angel Sanguine you are a pessimist The Doom Eagles seek out the worst atrocities the galaxy commits because we want to put things right It will not happen in any of our lifetimes but it will happen and it is the Space Marines who will do it whether we are too prideful for our own good or not Why fight if you believe all is lost no matter what you do Gethsemar shook out his hand and the dust drifted away on the thin wind Because it is our duty he replied Did you ever think you d read about Space Marine so self aware that they could discuss their place in the universe I didn tGraevus let the battle lust in him take over It was a rare that he permitted himself to completely let go to abandon everything that made a Space Marine a disciplined weapon of war and allow the born warrior the celebrant of carnage to take controlGraevus s mutated hand clamped around the Howling Griffon s head and dropped his axe among the burning debris He twisted the Howling Griffon s head around until a seal gave on his helmet and the helmet came awayThe Howling Griffon was the image of Graevus himself a gnarled and relentless veteran the kind of man that could be trusted to hold any line and execute any order when the fire came downThese are our brothers thought GraevusThey are the same as usThe thought broke through Graevus s battle lust He tried to force it down but it would not be uietedGraevus took a step back from the Howling Griffon The Griffon disarmed with his heavy bolter lying down in the wreckage scrabbled away from Graevus Graevus picked up his axe not taking his eyes from his opponent Fall back shouted Graevus Fall back To your lines Fall back Did you ever think you d read about a Space Marine blinking on the verge of victory I didn t Then who will go said Tyrendian Sergeant Salk said Sarpedon I ask that you select a suad and accompany me I cannot do this alone Captain Luko you shall take command of the rest of the Chapter You are our Chapter Master replied Luko It is to your leadership that our battle brothers look Would you deny them that in their final battle Let one of us go No captain retorted Sarpedon I am faster than any Space Marine Foul as they are my mutations serve me well in that regard Not to mention I would send no man to face Iktinos or Daenyathos save myself And I may be their leader by right but ask any Soul Drinker what man he would prefer to fight alongside and those who are honest will name Captain Luko Luko did not reply for a long moment If I was asked that uestion said Luko levelly then I would say Chapter Master Sarpedon Is it my fate that I will be denied that in these our last moments It is said Sarpedon I promised you peace captain It will come soon I did not promise I would be there when it arrived Forgive me but these are my orders Luko said nothing but saluted by way of reply I wept when I read that because I understood there was only one way this could end Just thinking about that scene makes me tear upThis book is 1 of only 4 I re read during 2012 The others being Pariah GEB and Choices of One Such a rare joy to find an author who understands how to finish a story
