    After losing everything in defence of Ophelia VII, Sister Evangeline of the Order of Our Martyred Lady is sent on a divine quest to seek out the Shield of Saint Katherine in Imperium Nihilus. To Inquisitor Ravara of the Ordo Malleus, Evangeline’s mission offers the opportunity to serve her own ends and undo a terrible wrong. Haunted by ghosts of the past and wrestling with their duties, both find their faith tested and their paths profoundly challenged. As with all the best Black Library books After losing everything in defence of Ophelia VII, Sister Evangeline of the Order of Our Martyred Lady is sent on a divine quest to seek out the Shield of Saint Katherine in Imperium Nihilus. To Inquisitor Ravara of the Ordo Malleus, Evangeline’s mission offers the opportunity to serve her own ends and undo a terrible wrong. Haunted by ghosts of the past and wrestling with their duties, both find their faith tested and their paths profoundly challenged. As with all the best Black Library books this uses great characters to reflect and explore their archetypes, digging beneath the surface of the 40k setting while telling a powerful, compelling story which cuts to the core of 40k and the eternal conflict between the Imperium and Chaos. Everything combines into a driving narrative which is cleverly paced using the intertwining viewpoints of the two characters, the intensity of the plot ebbing and flowing with some incredibly dark moments, particularly in amongst the breathless and high-impact action sequences. For all the bruising combat and Warp-infused cosmic horror (it is a Warhammer story, after all) however, Harrison never loses sight of her characters, putting them through hell but keeping the reader engaged with relatable, human stakes. All told it’s a powerful, brutally honest book, and something that should be at the top of the list for any 40k fan. Read the full review at https://www.trackofwords.com/2019/11/...

    The Adepta Sororitas have received a long-awaited revitalisation in the Warhammer 40k franchise, with this novel accompanying the release of the faction's first plastic models. And the novel does this revitalisation justice. Rachel Harrison crafts her characters masterfully; every scene is drenched in personality, and every action taken by the characters is motivated, understandable from the character's perspective. Before the book is a third over, we know all we need to know about them to The Adepta Sororitas have received a long-awaited revitalisation in the Warhammer 40k franchise, with this novel accompanying the release of the faction's first plastic models. And the novel does this revitalisation justice. Rachel Harrison crafts her characters masterfully; every scene is drenched in personality, and every action taken by the characters is motivated, understandable from the character's perspective. Before the book is a third over, we know all we need to know about them to understand the journey each is respectively on, and their development unfolds magnificently. The two main characters are, as stated in the bio, Sister Evangeline and Inquisitor Ravara. However, there is a third character that remains unmentioned: that of the setting. Specifically the Great Rift. It is omnipresent throughout every point of the story, and is brought to dark life when the journey through it commences. This is the most detailed, most interesting examination of what the Great Rift is and what it means for the Imperium that we've seen yet. In a way, Mark of Faith has laid significant groundwork for future novels to build off. This is among the best 40k novels I've ever read, and I hope we will get to see Rachel Harrison do more with the Adepta Sororitas in future.

    This was an outstanding strongly character driven novel about Evangeline, a Sister of Battle and Ravara, an Inquisitor as they try to find an ancient Imperial artifact and live up to impossibly high religious standards. Even the enemy has very understandable and, to a degree, sympathetic goals. The examination of relationships between all the characters and the moments of character self introspection are some of the best, most honest, and MOST MATURE I’ve read in the genre.

    I say He says She says The linguistic depth of Mark of Faith’s prose Mark of Faith is an interesting enough take of the Battle Sisters mythos in the 41st millennium, and yet Mark of Faith does little to seperate itself from most 40k fiction. The story is what most readers have come to expect from this type of fiction which is neither good or bad. As a regular reader of Black Library’s fiction, I found the linguistic depth of the novel to be disappointing.

As a regular reader of Black Library’s fiction, I found the linguistic depth of the novel to be disappointing. The book is far from unreadable as it has some developed characters and interesting enough premise. Despite this, I come to the publisher for a more sophisticated style of writing than what is on display here.

    Unfortunately massive let down as been waiting for this book since it has been announced. Plot seems sooo overstretched that it could have easily been short story in some omnibus. Massive problem with BL is making author write book about products they are marketing at the time and very often it shows, there is feeling of author trying to just make it work but on few occasions I have been close to just giving up. Hopefully one day Dan Abnett will write about Adeptas Sororitas, that would be dream Unfortunately massive let down as been waiting for this book since it has been announced.

    I was really looking forward to this novel. I'm on an Adepta Sororitas bender right now and will devour anything about our beloved sisters. The best bit for me would be the hard slog through the warp. Where the ship they are travelling on is literally falling apart after every jump. It's only the utter faith of the sisters that saves everyone. The only negative for me was the ending. Not the satisfying ending I hoped for. Still worth a read if you're a SoB fan.

    Harrison has quickly become one of my favorite 40K writers. This wasn't the typical 40K story, as it was more about psychological than physical battles, but the characters were well developed and truly real. Whether you like them or not, you do connect to them. The only reason this wasn't a 5-star for me was the hint of social justice signaling... other than that it was a good story with great characters.

    Rachel Harrison is KILLING it with these books. Right out of the gate she is vaulting to the top of the Black Library's authors.
