Review of Death of Integrity

Author:  Guy Haley.
Title:  Death of Integrity.
Publisher:  The Black Library.
Copyright:  2013.
Pages:  414.
Price:  $16.00 (US).


Death of Integrity is a story about Terminators and genestealers.  It involves two different Space Marine Chapters:  the Nova Marines and the Flesh Tearers.  I enjoyed the whole space hulk premise.  But they didn't have enough marines to kill the hundreds of genestealers they had in the novel.  My suspension of disbelief isn't really big enough to believe that several companies of Space Marines in Terminator armor could kill that many genestealers.

Maybe I've played Space Hulk too long.  The size of the vessels they talked about were kilometers long.  It would take thousands of Space Marines in their terminator plate to secure a hulk like Death of Integrity.

Aside from that, I enjoyed the novel.  Recommended for the casual WH40K fan.

  1. You see how it works is you have to buy many sets of Space Hulk, then you can replicate the battles in the novel.
    GW is brilliant, absolutely brilliant, and evil, with their wicked marketing skills!
