I was expecting a little addition to the lore of some of my most beloved characters. I was not expecting a fully realized tale in less than 20 pages that will work without context around it. I truly think it works. It is a story of despair and perverted loyalty, framed with parts of a poem, beautiful on it's own.

I've actually never read anything with Lotara Sarrin before and know her only from discussions on the 40klore subreddit and ADB's social media.

I also enjoyed the poetry excerpts and the touches of the same dark humor found in the Night Lords trilogy.

Good short story

Title says it all. Good short story delving into the decay of everyone's bloodthirsty legion. Aaron captured the brutality and desperation of the World Eaters.
