In the aftermath of the Dropsite Massacre at Isstvan V, a battered and bloodied force of Iron Hands, Raven Guard and Salamanders regroups on a seemingly insignificant death world.
Fending off attacks from all manner of monstrous creatures, the fractious allies find hope in the form of human refugees fleeing from the growing war and cast adrift upon the tides of the warp. But even as the Space Marines carve out a sanctuary for them in the jungles of Pythos, a darkness gathers that threatens to consume them all.

A single short sentence.
When used sparingly, this can be very effective in entertaining the reader. When this technique is employed so often that it feels like it's appearing every other page, it wears a bit thin.
It doesn't help that this is a completely superfluous story that hardly merits inclusion in the Horus Heresy. It could have been a passable short story, but as a novel, this work flounders.
Still better than Battle for the Abyss though.
Other comments I sort of agree with: the author could have used more compound and complex sentences, lots of simple sentences in this one, but I feel the editing of the novel could have improved it there. The grouping of the Salamanders, Raven Guard and Iron Hands is getting pretty used up, and through most short stories, each character representing their legion is pretty stereotypical, but that's why I liked one Iron Hands self doubt in this book. I thought the characters were used well, finally a story where the serf is actually part of the story for a reason, the two main serfs represent the Imperium that will be and so are rightly part of the development of the story. Every serf from every other book grinds my nerves, the only exception may be from the Dembski-Bowden Night Lords trilogy.
I'm surprised Manus wasn't mentioned more. Still think he should have been the tech-marine primarch, he had the pack for it. If you read Pandorax, read this. If you like the Iron Hands, read this. Nobody actually mentioned what's going to happen next with this story line, I personally can't wait to see where the tides of the warp take the Veritus Ferrum. If only The Gorgon could see it now.

I felt that the characters were poorly developed and the book just didn't flow.
This has been the first book from the series that I didn't enjoy.
This is just my opinion if your reading the series you should still make your own mind up on the book but for me it wasn't a good read.
Too many Space Marine characters are stereotypes of their chapters.
A whole book to build up to a major bloodbath at the end.
There is another major trap but I can't say without giving away the plot.
