I am a huge fan of The Black Library's Warhammer 40K novels. With only a few blips in the hefty catalogue, all of the titles have been excellent reads. With this in mind I was expecting something spectacular from this collection of short stories from some of the biggest names on the publisher's roster. Sadly it failed to live up to my expectations.
Highlights of the book include The Relic by Jonathan Green, The Returned by James Swallow and At Gaius Point by Aaron Dembski-Bowden. The aforementioned stories aside, the rest of the anthology is instantly forgetable - there is a lot worse out there to read, but nothing about them is worth recommending. As the low-point Ben Counter's Space Wolves story 'Twelve Wolves' is frankly abysmal and I'd suggest that you skip over it.
