Purging the alien with righteous fury!

Really enjoyed this dark and gritty story, most of it told from Grimaldus' perspective. You do very easily find yourself becoming invested in the characters. I especially liked the stark differences between the Black Templars and the Salamanders.

It is an older book now and would love to see a sequel but it is a very well told, self contained story.

Good, solid book.

Not Aaron’s best work, but a good story with good strong characters, as you’d expect from the Black Templars. The clash of personalities, culture, and philosophies with The Salamanders chapter is good as well. Well worth a read/listen if you’re a fan of these sons of Dorn.
