Book 131 // Garro: Vow of Faith by James Swallow

It had to happen, I tried to put it off, but I have to read this final Garro Tale. So far this has been an amazing series by James Swallow and I hope this is not the end. Here are the other titles I have so far.

Here is the Black Library write up:

Returning to the start of his spiritual journey, Nathaniel Garro abandons his duties to search instead for Euphrati Keeler, the Living Saint, and any answers she can give him…

Long has been the road of Nathaniel Garro. After escaping the treachery of Isstvan III aboard the Eisenstein, he was gifted with a new purpose as the Agentia Primus of the Knights Errant – and yet, Garro has become listless as the full extent of Malcador the Sigillite’s plans for the future are revealed, questioning his place in the galaxy once more. Even as the armies of the Warmaster draw near, Garro strikes out into the wastes of Holy Terra. The object of his search? None other than the Living Saint, Euphrati Keeler.

Explore more of Terra than ever before as Garro's journey comes full circle and he seeks the woman who once saved his life and put him on his path. Filled with doubts and fears about the war and his place in it, Garro needs to find a new path to tread... and Keeler might just be able to help him again.

At 126 pages we get a nice quick read. It follows up on his story as Garro has a crisis of faith. Following the discovery of Malcador's "Grey Knights" and his refusal to lead them, Garro has seemingly lost his purpose and is no longer sure if he fits within the wider galaxy anymore. Following a meeting with Malcador, Garro is given time to find himself once more, and for our lead role that means finding Keeler "The Saint".

The main highlight of this tale was the re-appearance of old characters. Of course, we have Keeler and Sindermann, but we also have Kell and Sigismund. It is this follow-up that I really enjoy, as these characters have been forgotten about for far too long. I also enjoyed the time Terra as we got to discover more about this heavily scared planet and how the populous outside of the Palace actually live.

My only point of negativity is that I would have loved more pages. 126 was too short and I want James Swallow to be given some real space to play with this story. But ultimately a lovely read if you are a fan of the 30k verse.
