Fluff: Aboard the Molech’s Enlightenment, amongst the countless civilian refugees that fled the Warmaster’s invasion, a serpent makes its nest. The Chaos cult that brought House Devine to its knees lives on, preying upon the weak and the helpless, and it falls to Alivia Sureka to root out the evil that hides in plain sight. Luckily for her, she has an ally who is more than familiar with such tactics – the lone wolf Knight Errant, Severian.

This is a tense rescue mission. The immortal Alivia Sureka teams up with the Space Marine Severian to fight a wicked Serpent God cult. They’re the perfect team, mixing superb hunting prowess with ferocious fighting. And Sureka’s actions to save her daughter drive the moral home - don’t step between a wolf and her cub.


A follow-up story to the Vengeful Spirit title and one I much appreciated. In the Vengeful Spirit title, we had a lot of characters woven into the title to finish off their tales, but for some characters, we didn't get that. Finally, at least Alivia Sureka and Severian's tale finished.

We join Alivia Sureka as she attempts to rescue her adopted daughter from the grip of Molech's Serpent Cult. With few options open to her, she is forced to join up with a Knight Errant - Severian. As the duo fight their way through cultists, they discover they are actually attempting to summon a daemon that, if raised, would wreak havoc on the refugee ship.

The action was great, and the storytelling was engaging and made for a beautiful ending to this set of shorts. I believe Pharos is next, and then another round of short stories. It seems like I am over the hill with this series and now racing to the end (still 20+ books to go if my math is right). Then finally I can hit the siege of Terra books. Wow what a ride so far.
