Gaunt has recovered from the ordeal he faced int he last book, he has new eye augmentations, but he too is getting flabby with the being out of rotations. At the end of this battle, the Ghosts lost an excellent leader, Sergeant Lerod. One of my resolutions for this year was to read books about something other than Space Marines Only copies were printed for the release date in Septemberbut it has since been included in the Sabbat Worlds anthology, a background book of short stories, edited by Dan Abnett.
