From School Library Journal
Grade 10 Up–On the orders of the Galactic Emperor, Imperial Inquisitor Alastor arrives on the desolate planet Magnum Christi to investigate the appearance of two ancient and gargantuan robots beneath the planet&'s surface. A surprise attack by a psychically controlled monster puts Alastor on the trail of two wealthy merchant siblings who claim that a pair of bandit brothers is to blame. But all is not as it appears, as a visit to the cutthroats&' lair results in a fearsome attack by mercenaries hired by the merchants. It&'s up to Alastor to repel the attack and bring the villains to justice any way he can. Based on the popular Warhammer 40,000 RPG, this title has a high level of detail that may make it hard to follow for readers who don&'t have basic knowledge of the game&'s universe. Nevertheless, it&'s definitely a rip-roaring read, blending hardcore sci-fi action with a unique crime/investigation slant and lots of violence and gore. A solid second purchase for action/sci-fi collections serving older teens and gamers.–Dave Inabnitt, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

The powerful Inquisitor-Psychic Delius Alastor and his Savant Pascal will investigate the planet Magnum Christi where there had been a rebelion and were found immense battle-titans. Why they weren't sensed before is a mystery that might hide something even more terrible than the war-machines, so the Inquisitor will investigate.
Among other things, a terrible secret will be found, merchant families disputes will be fought, treason will be unveiled, sacrifice and honor might save the day.
Recommended for Warhammer fans, but I believe this story arc is quite compressed.
English isn't my native language, so I frequently write incorrectly (sorry); but three typos in a back cover of a book is quite a record!!! Inquistor (inquisitor), Abites (Arbites) and Segeant (Sergeant) are probable Tzeentchian influences on the editor of this book; I might have to call the Inquisition to investigate...
