James Swallow's Hammer and Anvil
James Swallow's Hammer and Anvil is the continuation of Sister Miriya's story (from Faith and Flame and Red and Black). After the events of Faith and Fire, Miriya has been demoted from her rank of Celestian,and has joined an expedition that is returning back to Sanctuary 101. Faced with both the plotting of the Adeptus Mechanicus and the machinations of Inquisitor Hoth of the Ordos Xenos, Sister Miriya and the Order of Out Martyred Lady must deal with threats from within and without. Overall, this was a good continuation of the series, fairly depicting the Sisters of Battle, as well as being a great depiction of the ways in which the Necrons are currently being imagined. Fans of both should pick up this book. Readers looking for an entertaining way to pass the time should too.
