As with the last book review this is posted in full on http://thefoundingfields.com/
In a series which is becoming ever more focused upon either the traitor legions or Ultramarines for its tales, the Raven Guard have always stood as a military given a rare degree of exploration. Having appeared in a number of minor and major stories, the legion has served to explore the wars beyond what the major novels detail. Giving a greater scope to events and exploring how a legion can keep fighting even after suffering near total annihilation. As such it’s unfortunate that this latest instalment is such a mixed bag.
Following on from the conclusion of Deliverance Lost, Soulforge continues the Raven Guard efforts to harry the Warmaster’s forces. As they prepare for another assault against a base of power vital to the traitors, the legion uncovers a second, far more pressing target. Having seemingly formed an alliance with the Word Bears, the forge world of Constanix II is now potentially at their disposal. Hearing rumours of daemon engines possibly spawned from its factories, Corax leads a small number of his warriors deep into the heart of the metal planet. There he must determine if any loyalists remain and halt this new threat at all costs.
