Audio Review 114 // Luna Mendax by Graham McNeill

We seem to be nearing the end of the Silent War collection. It has been a great listen, and I am sure the book would be equally as good. I am personally very happy with the amount fo Garviel Loken we have been getting of late, and I hope it doesn't come to an end.

Title: Luna Mendax
Author: Graham McNeill
Blurb: Scarred by betrayal and unsure of his place in the war that wracks the galaxy, Knight Errant Garviel Loken seeks sanctuary, but the ghosts of his past haunt him still...

Returning from a secretive mission to Caliban at the command of Malcador the Sigillite, the Knight Errant Garviel Loken finds sanctuary in one of the abandoned bio-domes of Luna. Scarred by betrayal and bewildered by the changing face of the galaxy, the weary warrior is almost unsurprised when he is visited by the long-dead Tarik Torgaddon – is this a sign of a fractured and exhausted mind playing tricks on itself, or truly the spirit of a departed friend?

It's a fascinating look at the fractured psyche of everyone's favourite Luna Wolf, and is packed with hints as to the true nature of Chaos and the trials that Loken will face as his future unfolds.

Wow, this one hit hard. I am still surprised when we get emotional Space Marines. But it seems like the Marines of the Horus Heresy were more human than their current versions. Considering this is short it packed an emotional punch like the early Istvaan stories. It also helped to solidify Loken as one of the best Marines characters out there.

Having failed at Caliban to discover the truth of the Dark Angels' allegiance, Loken returns defeated. He has disappointed Primarch Dorn and allowed doubt to seep in. As he struggles to find his place in the new galaxy, Loken discovers an overgrown biodome, left rot by a deceased Sister of Silence. As Loken attempts to reignite life in the garden, he is visited by a ghost of his past. Who with his help reinvigorates Loken and prepares him for the task ahead.

Wow. Great story, I already know Loken heads off to Vengeful Spirit after this, but what comes next??
