Amidst the creeping foliage and ancient monuments, a horror is rising. From the depths of a crumbling cathedral come bloodied nightmares, intent on fulfilling their dark purpose by any means necessary. Only one thing stands in their way: the wrathful, holy fire of the Adepta Sororitas. Filled with the light of the Emperor, Sister Superior Augusta and her squad are a force to be reckoned with. They are here to purge the darkness from Lautis with prayer and bolter, and nothing will stop them. But the things that dwell in the darkness aren’t afraid. Augusta must put her trust in her Battle Sisters and lead them into the shadows of the crypts in search of the truth. Faith and fire are powerful weapons, but will they be enough to defeat the sinister powers that lurk in the deeps?

    Fantastic novella. Very descriptive of the Warhammer universe and had a lot of insight on the Sisters of Battle. I would like to read more about the Sisters of the Bloody Rose. Augusta’s group of warriors were very interesting to read about.

    The Sisters of Battle are sometimes described casually in the fandom as the Space Marines' female counterparts. While the space nuns with guns share a culture of monastic austerity, rigid discipline, martial valor, and undying fanaticism, it is more accurate to say they are the human version of the Space Marines. For all their zeal, the Sisters are also jumpy and anxious when confronted with an ominous mystery and experience fear in battle that causes them to freeze or fall back on singing and l The Sisters of Battle are sometimes described casually in the fandom as the Space Marines' female counterparts.

For all their zeal, the Sisters are also jumpy and anxious when confronted with an ominous mystery and experience fear in battle that causes them to freeze or fall back on singing and litanies to push through it. This is something I would definitely like to see explored more in future stories about them. Ware also did a good job keeping the Sisters sympathetic to the reader without watering down their religious extremism and xenophobic nature.

    A good read with an interesting premise, Danie Ware's use of pros is a pleasure to read! Though sadly; an obvious use of charter categorisation pulled me out of the experience enough to keep this story from being a page turner for me. Going into this I was exited! Finally, a new Sisters of Battle novella/story and featuring the Order of the Bloody Rose no less! As someone with an actual SoB Bloody Rose force I was very interested in picking this one up. The opening to this book is pretty amazing. A good read with an interesting premise, Danie Ware's use of pros is a pleasure to read!

Finally, a new Sisters of Battle novella/story and featuring the Order of the Bloody Rose no less! As someone with an actual SoB Bloody Rose force I was very interested in picking this one up. The opening to this book is pretty amazing. The action and little details throughout the book is a real treat, it is amazing to see well written Sororitas kicking ass and being bad-ass rather than being slaughtered; which has happened just enough in other novels to become noticeable. I feel Ware's use of banter and characterisation was very authentic and I was genuinely entertained for the most part. There were a couple of minor editing errors that I noticed but nothing narrative breaking, my biggest disappointment in this story is the use of charter categorisation. I feel that Ware put a little too much real world emphasis on characters identities and names, the kind of thing that made me realise that I was not in the grim darkness of the far future but rather that I was reading something in 2018, it was jarring and a little upsetting as the story was otherwise well done. I will keep an eye on any potential future works from this author but with a healthy dose of skepticism. :) Also, as a side note, can we take a moment to appreciate how cool the cover for this book is?... So cool!

    This picks up the story of Sister Superior Augusta after the events of the short story Mercy - having returned to the Convent Sanctorum of the Order of the Bloody Rose to rest and induct the newest member of the squad, Augusta and her Sisters are unexpectedly ordered back to Lautis, the site of their recent confrontation with the orks. The Sisters sent in to secure Lautis have gone silent, and Augusta’s mission report questioned, so she is tasked with returning and finishing what she started.

The Sisters sent in to secure Lautis have gone silent, and Augusta’s mission report questioned, so she is tasked with returning and finishing what she started. It continues the strong start made with Mercy, but while the short story only really had scope for action and aggression this slightly longer story (it’s a 140-page novella) provides the time and space to explore a little more of the characters themselves and the wider context of their Order. There’s the occasional moment of convenient plotting here and there, and as the action ramps up any subtlety goes out the window, but that’s not really a bad thing in context of this sort of story. Overall it’s tremendously entertaining, and a great example of how satisfying the Sisters of Battle can be when they’re written well. Read the full review at https://www.trackofwords.com/2018/11/...

    Superb sci-fi action Dannie’s storytelling is fantastic, with amazing action scenes and battles not detracting from really strong characters. The Sisters of Battle in Warhammer 40k are often just seen as last stand material (always wiped out to make the enemy look tough), but here we see strong confident warriors with a range of unique and interesting personalities. The only criticism I have is that it’s just a novella - I’d love to see Danie write a full novel for these characters so I can read Superb sci-fi action Dannie’s storytelling is fantastic, with amazing action scenes and battles not detracting from really strong characters.

    A great continuation to the Sisters of Battle story began in Mercy, this time in a longer novella. We are back following the same squad on a different mission to fight a unknown enemy. The building sense of doom and the pacing is great. The decent through the caves builds the fear wonderfully and you get a great sense of emersion. The final fight I wont spoil but the sense of scale and the Sisters belief if brilliant. I look forward to reading more by Danie Ware.

    Interesting intro to the black library! This is book 1 of the novella series that's supposed to be an intro to the Black Library. I like how the sisters of battle sing during fighting. It was well paced and pretty interesting. I bought the book Mercy which is supposed to include these characters because I enjoyed them so much.

    For Sisters fans you'll really enjoy this. For fans of any other particular faction in the Warhammer 40k universe, it's still fun, as the main story deals with facing off with a bloodthirsty horde of Khornate daemons. Very entertaining with lots of action to keep the attention and pages moving. My only regret was that it was so short.

    I really enjoyed this- I have not read many stories focused on the Sisters of Battle, unfortunately (despite them being my primary 40K army), so reading this was extremely enjoyable and interesting. Not quite a mystery, but definitely an adventure of exploration, with a few pieces of action interspersed. Definitely worth a read.
