    Just not a well written book at all. It has probably a fifth grade reading level. Storyline is lacking, as well as his grasp of the English language. Does not even compare to Rynns World.

    Just an "average" Warhammer 40K book.

    Andy Hoare's HUNT FOR VOLDORIOUS has all the "minimum requirements" for a book in the Space Marine Battles series. There's a Space Marine chapter (White Scars, in this case), an enemy (Alpha Legion and traitor militia), and plenty of over the top violence (I lost track of the number of times someone was cut in half). Unfortunately, it's a little short on story, and as a result doesn't really hold up well with either RYNN's WORLD or HELLSREACH (the first two books in the series).

    The 3rd company of the White Scars have vowed to bring down the daemon Voldorius, who is bent on releasing the Bloodtide once more. They track him to the desolate planet of Quintus V, where they join forces with the 3rd company of the Blood Ravens, who are there on a related but separate mission. There is mutual distrust between the two chapters, but out of necessity they work together to achieve both their aims. Along the way there are many bloody battles, with all the chainsword flesh rendering and bolt gun carnage most 40K fans have come to enjoy.

    But in my opinion the story is long on daemons and warp, and shorter on Space Marine tactics, cooperation, and domination. The introduction of a second chapter (Blood Ravens) as tentative allies detracts rather than adds to the story line, and in the end the whole book just sort of felt average and unremarkable.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say "disappointing," but it's pretty average. True Space Marine fans will find something to enjoy in here, but if you just dabble in this world, there are other titles more worth your time.
