4.0 von 5 Sternen Dan Abnet shines threw, 25. April 2006
I have been involved in the Warhammer 40,000 universe for 20 years now, and have been an avid military sci-fi reader for almost 30 years.

He has done extensive research on the inner workings of the Vatican and studied Fatima and related occurences of purported appearances by the Virgin Mary. Berry has said that he seeks to inform as well as entertain; this was certainly true of his two previous novels which reflected substantial research on Czarist and World War II Russia, and it is true here as well. Another Berry characteristic is that his lead characters almost invariable do actions which are so patently stupid that the reader wants to scream--but I guess that is how you get a plot. Like his previous novels, the story moves along at a good clip, although at 372… Mehr dazu
