The Emperor's Gift

Aaron Dembski-Bowden's latest offering is the Emperor's Gift. This novel is the tale of a squad of Grey Knights before the First Battle of Armageddon, and follows all the way through the aftermath. For those not so familiar with the First Battle, there are lots of places that recount that war, however it has never been told from this vantage point. This novel is everything that Void Stalker should have been - in terms of story and flow - but it is really the freshness of the tale that makes it so worth reading.

  1. Three questions:

    Is it at least on par with Ben Counter's Grey Knight trilogy?
    Does it still do the First War for Armageddon justice?
    And does it do anything to repair the hideous damage done to the Grey Knight fluff in their last codex?
