Indeed. Truthfully I think that Sebastian Thor and Confessor Dolan were the only competent priests/saints in the entire Imperium. All the others are either fanatical, incompetent, stupid, corrupt or some mixture of the four.

Also, every other line by Njal is made of awesomesauce.

Are there any non-fat Imperial high-ranking Clerics?

Horus came to say.

won't you help me slay tonight?"
Then all the rebels loved him
And they shouted out with glee.

you'll go down in history!"

I rather thought that too, Malky. There's something a little vexing characterising all monstrously incompetent/blinkered people as also very fat.

That aside, I rather liked the book. There were a lot of nice points to it and, oddly, I've persuaded myself that I really like the preposterous 'twist' ending. It feels appropriately Space Wolf-y, especially so long after the Heresy and the 'PB-era' Wolves. This is a real fragmentation, a really crushing turn of events. But it's hopeful too, it's a compelling thing to have happened. I'm excited by the prospect of a third novel for 'em. Hopefully not quite as... 'sparse' as the Space Hulk bit of this novel - not bad by any means, but a bit... thin on the ground?

Well, anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the novel.
