Great book! Couldn't put it down! Great work!
I don't know if the author was trying to make the characters in this book relatable to the reader or what, but for "hardened" assassins of the imperium they all seemed to have weak will power and other flaws that I believe simply wouldn't exist in this universe. There was a lot of uncertainty and I had a hard time believing that these were the best members the officio assassinorum had to offer... pretty weak in my opinion. On top of that as I was reading it I encountered several grammatical errors and spelling errors, which to me when you are paying $16 for a published book is simply unacceptable. The story was long and doesn't pay off at all for the time spent reading, I would recommend passing on this book unless you are into mediocre assassins who are having unrealistic internal struggles of faith.
