James Swallow's Red and Black

Today, while painting I listened to James Swallow's Red & Black. This is an audio drama about a Sister of Battle, Celestian Miriya, who is charged with deciding whether a world recently emerged from a warp storm is worthy of rejoining the Imperium. But it isn't just a question of Chaos infestation, for the world has replicai on it, vat grown clones created with human DNA to be powerful warriors, or something else? I enjoyed the story, it has a lot of moral dilemma elements which 40k novels typically don't and underlines the harshness of the 40k universe as a whole. If you are looking for an entertaining listen, give this a try, whether it be for a long drive, work commute or painting music, it is a good audio book.
