Rynns World - Steve Parker

Score: A


When the ork hordes of Warlord Snagrod lay waste to the planet of Badlanding and wipe out the Crimson Fists sent to stop them, Chapter Master Kantor prepare a hasty line of defence on the Fists home planet of Rynn's World. Tragedy strikes when an errant missile destroys the Space Marine's Chapter monastery, killing most of their warriors. With a handful of Crimson Fists left, Kantor must fight the campaign of his life, to defeat Snagrod's orks and prevent his Chapter's annihilation.


Loved the book. Excellent writing kept me involved the whole time. The emotional conflict Chapter Master Pedro Kantor has to deal with after the near destruction of his Space Marine Chapter, to either seek vengeance on the Ork Waaagh and lose the Chapter to history or save whats left of his men and his pride and seek to rebuild, is a dynamic look into the psyche of one of the Emperors finest leaders. There are just enough characters that you are not overwhelmed with dead-end filler stories, but still feel as if these people are part of the story and not just there to take up pages.
