Book Review: Blood Gorgons
So anyway, this book starts with a pretty major shake-up in the Blood Gorgon's hirearchy and one of their, "chattle" worlds is being threatened by xenos. This doesn't sit well with the Blood Gorgon's so they send some marines down, but things go bad from the start. We see most of the story from the point of view of Barsabbas. He becomse a one man killing spree as all good (or in this case evil) Space Marines should be. Some of the action is a little bit over the top, but I think it does make for a good tale.
As I've been saying all along, Henry Zou does an excellent job with action, it has been plot and character development that I have had a hard time with in his previous books. Here, he seems to overcome that. If he keeps writing books about the Bastion Worlds, I would love for him to revisit the Blood Gorgons, but if he does not, I hope that the next books will be as well written as this one.
I give this book four swapped organ's out of five.
