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.
For this episode, we’re reading something new! It’s off to to read Vaults of Terra: The Dark City by Chris Wraight. You can purchase it at Amazon, Black Library, or Audible.
From the back of the book:
The Throneworld is in turmoil, wracked by the opening of the Great Rift and the failure of the Astronomican. Inquisitor Erasmus Crowl, his mind and body ravaged by what he has seen in the Hollow Mountain, is missing, taking with him the clues to the conspiracy that has come to obsess him. Luce Spinoza, his interrogator, must choose whether to seek him out or defend her diminished realm from the many forces that still seek to destroy it. As enemies circle, Interrogator Spinoza enters a race against time to find the evidence she needs. But with the fate of humanity itself hanging in the balance, she must decide what lengths she is willing to go to in order to uncover the truth.
Questions to ponder after reading Vaults of Terra: The Dark City:
- Did you like the book?
- What parts stood out to you?
- How do you feel about Spinoza vs. Crowl as an Inquisitor? Would Spinoza have made a “good” inquisitor?
- How did you feel about Crowl in this book?
- Were you invested in Spinoza’s/Crowl’s entourage this book?
- What did you think of Raskian’s argument for his plan? Do you agree?
- Let’s talk about the plan itself: What. Even. Is. Happening?
- What happens after the events of this book? Does Arx ever learn of these events?
I wonder did there will be a sequel, seems to be too much a of a cliffhanger to end the series.
