Double Eagle : Dan Abnett :
Sabbat Worlds 3 books. The odds are stacked against them however, as seemingly endless waves of heretic fliers test the Enothian defences, and a Chaos Ace Khrel Kas Obarkonis seemingly picking off Imperial pilots with impunity.
Must redeem within 90 days. It was alright but I definitely missed the lovecraftian elements of doubke that Abnett had worked into some of his other stories.
I always find that the small, side characters he adds end up involved in ways that just make plain good sense and are a surprise when the story unfolds. Set your 40kLore flair via the wondrous Flair Selection Page.
Apr 04, Alex Jones rated it liked it. As a fan of the Warhammer 40k abnet, this was a nice change up from the usual space battle flair. Abnett does an excellent job of describing everything, from landscape to aircraft, to combat and beyond.
