It would help us to help BK assess whether the series is worth continuing if he is specific about what he's not connecting with. We can then tell him if there's more or less of it going forward.

There's a mix of stealth and huge D-Day style invasion happening in The Armour of Contempt. It's a quite striking book and well told, but that's my reaction to it.

Finished The Emperor's Legion and The Reagent's shadow. After mostly reading Horus Heresy it was really refreshing to see how the "contemporary" Imperium remembers that era and reacts to the return of a primarch.

Going to give Eisenhorn a go as well now. It seems less of a mountain compared to Gaunt's Ghosts.

The Eisenhorn books are excellent, and I hear nothing but praise of the RAVENOR trilogy that follows it, and the two (soon to be three) BEQUIN books that follow that.

Ah, think we covered that before.

He's basically hopped up on pain meds and reciting a mindless litany, it's mind and painkillers over matter. No magic as far as I know

For that to be magical would make him an unsactioned psyker and .... I believe the series has already demonstrated what happens in that case.

Alright, I'm making good time! Just finished up His Last Command. I've noticed that Abnett has started taking a cue from Cook and having the titles of his books coming up in character dialogue repeatedly now.

I'm immediately starting The Armour of Contempt. What chapter was that last spoiler for BK? I'm on ebook and I don't want to click it before I should.

Finished up pt 1 - Walking Glory Road. I think I can guess your issue here from context clues BK. I'm going to avoid clicking your spoiler tags until I've gotten through Face-to-Face.

I'm hoping to catch up to you today BK.

Because our POV person for that storyline is a total noob, who knows nothing. It's his first combat experience and it's overwhelming for him.
