Emperor's Mercy

Emperor's Mercy - Henry Zou Emperor's Mercy was quite an entertaining book, though I didn't enjoy it as much as the James Swallow Blood Angel's books I read recently. In some ways it had a lot more emotional impact, as we walked around with the regular imperial guard during a chaos invasion, rather than with the superhuman space marines, and Zou didn't pull any punches describing the horrors that Chaos brought to the area.


Besides all this, and some excellent inquisitorial characters, It's probably one of the first science fiction books I've read that involves the destruction of an entire solar system/star cluster (planets and all). Which was interesting in and of itself.


I'll certainly go back to have a look at the erstwhile inquisitor's next adventure.
