Remorseless (eBook Review)

As with the last book review this is posted in full on and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.

Thus far these short stories have been fairly hit and miss, with some succeeding while others fail to truly utilise the assets they have on hand. Thankfully Remorseless is another hit with a number of engaging elements to keep the reader entertained. 

 Set during a pitched Iron Warriors siege against a hold-out on an otherwise conquered world, Remorseless follows the tale of traits on the cusp of complete victory. With their daemon engines driving back the defenders at every turn, and the Imperial forces holding the line almost exclusively thanks to the Imperial Fists, it will not be long before the end. However, as the Iron Warriors make the final push they release a very specific soldier to face their foes: A hunter of Angels… 

 As a tale, Remorseless is another relatively straight forwards one in terms of its narrative. It emphasises upon a relatively direct conflict, shows it during its final phases, has the Legion become involved with significant impact, and concludes on a dark note. This isn’t a criticism by any means, and if anything it’s something more stories need to embrace.
