Every two weeks we read a new book in the WH40k universe and discuss it on our podcast. We invite you to read along with us and join in on our conversation via comments, Twitter, email, or vox cast.
From the back of the book:
On the forge world of Morod, the machines never stop and the work never ends. The population toils in the mines and factoria to protect humanity from the monsters in the void, while the Adeptus Mechanicus enjoy lives of palatial comfort.
Genetor Gammat Triskellian seeks to end this stagnant corruption. When he learns of a twisted congregation operating within the shadows, one which believes that the tech-priests are keeping people from their true salvation – a long-prophesied union with angels – he sees in them an opportunity to bring down Morod’s masters and reclaim the world in the name of progress.
But sometimes, the only hope for real change lies in the coming of monsters.
Questions to ponder after reading Day of Ascension:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out?
- Do you think Davien fully understood what she was worshipping?
- Is the Imperium truly its own worst enemy?
- What did you make of Triskellion? Did you like his ideas? Should he have a newsletter?
- Were you surprised by the Skitarii?
- What are the implications in the end? Where does Davien go from here?
