Buckle up, folks. This episode got…long. And animated. And ranty. We were already hesitant with Penitent by Dan Abnett after Abnett said that this book was going to have a major lore changer. If you’ve listened to this voxcast long enough, you already know how we feel about Abnett’s need to throw wrenches in lore. We regret absolutely nothing.
We didn’t rant the entire time, I promise. I was firmly on a leash until Jen told me to go ahead. There was so much to discuss, from the Immaterial College to the two teams vying for control to the random drinking group that discusses…things(?). It’s a long one, but it’s filled with very animated discussion.
Next up is something we’ve been extremely excited about. We would have read it first, but we decided to get the Shake’n’Bake porkchops out of the way before we could get dessert. And that dessert is Swords of Calth by Graham McNeill. Wherever there is Uriel Ventris, WE WILL BE THERE!

Each episode will be in a traditional book club format. We will read one mutually agreed upon book to discuss at the club meeting aka podcast. Sometimes we will read brand new books, sometimes we will read old books, but there will be a method to our madness as to why.
