Since 1997 the bulk of background literature has been published by the affiliated imprint Black Library.

The Gothic Sector struggles once more against the savage Black Crusade. Plus approximately 7,000 new characters, from both the Imperial and the Chaos side of the fence. I think the bit that was most shocking to me is this whole section that's very "feel-good," where Semper kind of shows up to the eldar & is like, 'We don't know enough about each other. Let's not fight!' and you think, oh, this is 40K; this won't end well.

A great read. I had a hard time putting this book down. I have always enjoyed the idea of space battles in the Warhammer 40k universe, but I had not found a book that dealt very well with this concept. Gordon Rennie nails it.

He creates very interesting characters, paints a vivid image of live aboard a massive cruiser in the Imperial Navy, and writes a plot that compels you to keep turning the pages. Easily one of Black Library's best books.

I looked forward to reading this novel after completing "Execution Hour". It took me a while, but I managed to find a copy that did not have a price tag that threatened to burst the threadbare seams of my wallet like a brood of genestealers erupting from a fallen seed spore!

I came away from the final page of this book, feeling an equal measure of satisfaction and disappointment. If you read the back cover of the book, you'll notice a plot description that refers to the Blackstone Fortresses. It never appears in the story. It is never even alluded to in the story. However, the story is still well-written and will inspire many BFG players. While the series appears to be focused around the exploits of a prominent naval officer during the fabled Gothic War, this installment takes you from the awakening of an Avatar through the building tension between two mortal enemies and their attempts to form an uneasy alliance against a powerful enemy neither of them can hope to vanquish alone, and all the way up to the pivotal space battle that sees a combined force of Battlefleet Gothic and Craftworld Eldar defeating a Chaos Armada in one of the pivotal battles of that war.

There is intrigue, deception, and insightful sequences that help bring further understanding of the internal politics that rule within Abbadon's regime, among the Craftworld Eldar, and amongst the Imperial Navy.

Although I never found out what the Blackstone Fortress is or what significance it has, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it without hesitation to anyone looking for an interesting read.

I'm of two minds about this book. On one hand, I really, really enjoyed this, especially in comparison with the first half of this duology, which I thought worked well UNTIL it became a unified story. This is obviously a novel, not a novella & some short stories put together, and that's a good thing. On the other hand, what I enjoyed MOST about this book was the first half, the kind of "setting all the pieces in order" and the tension and the character buildup. The second half, the huge four-sided, ever-changing battle, was far less interesting, and since it's HALF THE BOOK, it just kind of ... keeps going until it ends (and what the hell; I feel I missed the climax).

Ostensibly this follows another outing of the Lord Solar Macharius during the Gothic War. We've got human Imperial Navy folk upholding a shaky truce with a group of eldar against some Chaos baddies, but unbeknownst to them, there are some dark eldar lurking in the wings trying to make things go pear-shaped. Captain Semper, Horst - all your favorites are back! Plus approximately 7,000 new characters, from both the Imperial and the Chaos side of the fence.

I think the bit that was most shocking to me is this whole section that's very "feel-good," where Semper kind of shows up to the eldar & is like, 'We don't know enough about each other. Let's not fight!' and you think, oh, this is 40K; this won't end well. But then it DOES. In a damn-near "Lion's paw"-esque ending, the eldar come back in Semper's time of need & help him out of a bind. This is balanced with some of Maxim's horrific actions during the book, but still, it's quite shocking to see a 40K book with even that much sort of 'things work out in the end' to it.

Despite a third act that takes up over half the book, the climax is rushed & ... kind of confusing, but still I did enjoy it. I think Rennie is a good author, and I wish he'd done more 40K stuff. I think he improved at least threefold between the first book & this one. Oh well. Maybe one day.

Games Workshop's Black Library used to publish books about characters other than Space Marines or Chaos Space Marines, and this is one of them, set in the historical past of the 40K universe in the time of the Gothic War.

Set aboard a Dictator class cruiser which is a hybrid carrier and cannon ship, this book was the 2nd book of a planned trilogy. It adheres quite closely to the Battlefleet Gothic background and rules given the author was a member of the old Battlefleet Gothic mailing list. Some of the Eldar background is of somewhat dubious canonicity but again it is a refreshing change compared to the endless Imperial viewpoints we get in more recent Black Library publications. Sadly the 3rd book of the trilogy was never written, so loose plot ends and the final fates of the characters is left hanging. Nonetheless it is a must have for anyone that wants to read about detailed space combat in the 40K universe.
