Excellently written, gripping and fast paced. Picks up shortly after book 3 and man was this a fast read, but still took a while for me to burn through. Lot of content for the $$.
C.J. Carella has become one of my "just buy it now authors" I've gotten most all of his other stuff. You should too! Others on that list for me are like David Weber, B.V. Larson, John Ringo, Larry Corriea, Lois Bujold, Dave Freer, Eric Flint, Travis Taylor.
Anyway, we finally find out quite a bit more about the "Warplings" and then the "Gimps" attack, Galactic Imperium boogey men that no one wanted to be attacked by, nor anger. Yeah them. They show up with ships that should be called "Monitors" or Super Duper Dreadnoughts, 3 times the size of pretty much anyone else. Pretty much the end of the line for just about anyone they attack. Good thing we have Warp Fighters. Unfortunately we have Warp Fighters, for both them and us. And the Warplings are noticing that we have been doing things around here.
Lot of good space battles, not quite as gritty as some of the previous books because the battles are so big, it would be tough to render and not have a tome of 800 pages or more.
I've thoroughly enjoyed this series and all the others by C.J. and I'm really looking forward to the next book of whatever he puts out (But I really hope its the next in this series!!)

How did eldritch horrors and warp demons get into my mil sci-fi?!?!?!?!?
All kidding aside, this series (to include this book) makes a great mil sci fi series, and the eldritch horrors just add to it, and make it even better. This book continues the series, and probably the only thing that is less than satisfying is that there are some many things going on, the original premise/main focus on the Warp Marine Corps is lessened. Despite that, it definitely makes for a five star book.
I will add this, though: Mr Carella, get an editor! While nowhere near as bad as some of the self published, non edited trash that you see on Amazon, there were certainly more editing errors in this book than the rest of the series combined. I understand the rush to get things out, but put in the editing time, please.
Horror piled upon horror, battles in space and on the Marauder planet that are apocalyptic in scope, and a sustained and mounting tension that I cannot recall from any of the thousands of SF novels I have read before. This series stands alone for mixing space opera and horror in a wildly inventive way. Read it!
Now the painful wait for the next book!
Some keywords/ concepts that somehow Mr. Carella managed to combine in a coherent, fun read:
- Warp Marines
- Galactic Empire
- Foo Fighters
- Warp Witch
- Elder Races
