Finished the book this morning, overall pleased with it. Part 2 will be pretty short. Most of the themes carry over from Part 1, so no need to go there again. SPOILERS AHEAD!
- I thought we might see Land Raiders, but no such luck. There was a marine Dreadnought though (and plenty of Ork walkers), some more land speeder action, as well as rhinos and razorbacks and predators oh my!
- Nice bit with a human trooper getting some redemption, which also kind of contrasts nicely with the Dark Angels never being allowed it.
- As expected, the later parts focus on Belial a lot, but we never get to see him clash directly with Ghazzie. Allegedly they did early in the battle, but off-camera, and we don't get a return engagement. Ghazzie of course gets away, setting the stage for his return to Armageddon.
- Some more old-school cool appears, like a displacement field.
