Default Dawn of War: Ascension

Has anyone read this book? I am half way though. What did you think of it?

Ive read it, didnt know about it till I saw the cover art.

Its not bad, not exactly great either. I must say the 3rd company is in quite a bind. They are doing awesome but still they are taking a lot of losses and not recovering. In a bad spot they are. Also ascension helps further show how much the blood ravens make use of tanks and Librarians. Its actually possible to have quite a few Libbies in a marine army, I hadnt realized it.

The book takes a long, long time before any action happens and the action isnt great and is not well described. All in all if your a Blood Ravens fan (like me) its a worthy read, otherwise your probably better off finding something else.

I have also read it. I wanted to read it because I have first played the Dawn of War game and then read the Dawn of War book.

It contains some nice background for the Blood Ravens and that makes it interesting.
It is also nice to see that the Inquisition are still 'investigating' the Blood Ravens.

I agree here.

Let us know when you have finished it.

Ok the whole question I have is...Whos the wierd Chapter that helped the Eldar? Sounds like ethier: Pre- Hersy Thousand Sons, or Blood Angels.

The Reason why I think it is the Thousand Sons is because they escaped to the Warp with the rest of their legion, and there are remours that the Blood Ravens are using the Geneseed of the Thousand Sons. It makes sense to me!

Any Ideas?
