Belial is a giant disappointment in this and previous books he is supposed to be a tactician and a skillful warrior who uses Deathwing like a sharp scalpel and yet he comes of as a head strong brute.
I don't like the idea of him taking over the legion as he is being written, not enough brain power. If something happens to Azrael the Unforgiven will be in a bit of a crisis.
I thought the ending was the worst written part of the book (which I otherwise enjoyed). Way too unclear and way too many plot holes.
The scattering is apparently caused by Tuchulcha because Azrael says get "everyone" to safety, so it moves the 40k Dark Angels, the Death Guard and the Fallen and leaves behind the loyalist Legion?
