Salvation's Reach

When I was waiting to be able to afford Salvation's Reach by Dan Abnett, I perused a couple of reviews of the book. Most of the them were fairly negative, expecting Mr. Abnett to be amazing and feeling he fell short. I liked this book though, even with the negative reviews ahead of time. For the first time in this lengthy series, a story arc is well and truly developing. It doesn't have the sense of completeness that other Ghosts novels had when finished, but is more of an actual series novel. Whether the end phase of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade is coming, or just the end of the Tanith, I do not know. What I do know, is that this novel starts out slower, it has a gradual build up that leads to a pretty brutal battle at the end. Fans of the Ghosts will enjoy this novel, and it even has a few space marines sprinkled in for the power armour crowd as well. Overall it is a good novel that continues an interesting new story arc
