Default Dark Adeptus

I've just finished reading the Sequel to Grey Knights... Dark Adeptus. And I have to say, wow. Another winner from Ben Counter, he has just been added to my list of Fluff masters. Anyway, has anyone else read the book? If so, what are your thoughts about it?

Not having chance to read it yet, and admittedly targeting my "geek fiction" purchases as they relate to my own "geekery," how does it look as relating to additions to 40k "corrupt Adeptus Mechanicus" fluff? does it at all explore the culture and rituals of these "Dark Adeptus" or simply use their machineries of destruction as a foil for the heroic Grey Knights of the story?

That is to say, are they portrayed sympathetically _enough_ for us as readers to get a grasp [even at straws] of their "culture?"

I just finished this book last night - a very good read that provides lots of insight into the Adeptus Mechanicus.

It was a pretty good read but the writing was alittle rough in parts. I think Dan Abnett has a better grasp of how to utilize the english language. For fluff information it was brilliant.

The book rubbed me the wrong way, although the, uh.. curious foe at the book's conclusion really does make you wonder what the AM will find if they ever do dig up a STC..

Go go Adeptus Mechanicus + Dark Adeptus codexes!
