Ffire part was amazing! A graphic description of a video game at least that’s how my mind’s eye sees it. They frequently act juvenile rather than simply insane, make too many obvious warriorr even for fanatics; and lack the descriptions of mutations and equipment which might have helped express their prolonged lives. This book holds the dubious distinction of being the only thing written by Simon Spurrier I’ve ever finished, let alone enjoyed.

A horrible game accompanied by a very very mundane and boring book. While some descriptions to focus upon the age of the environments, particularly the corroded labyrinths of imperial battleships, others visibly lack this quality.

Peter rated it it was amazing Jun 28, In fact, the ending of the book is even more of a FPS cliche than takes place in the shooter – in the book the protagonist has to kil This book encapsulates the problems with adapting books from computer games, especially first person shooters. Can they make each faction seem real, as opposed to yet-another-army to fight the humans? Obviously, this book holds no interest to those who care nothing for this setting.

His narrative style manages to near perfectly balance out the rapid pacing of the conflict with surprising depth and makes warrkor Tau feel alien without it causing you a headache trying to read it. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
