Golden Hair

Brothers of the Snake

Brothers of the Snake by Dan Abnett

This is, like the Gaunt's Ghosts books, a Warhammer 40000 book.  I think it's a fix-up.  Not just because it's a series of episodes, neatly marked off by the "undertakings" they are about, but because at some points, the characters are info-dumping stuff that we just read in the last episode, albeit very neatly.  And I think he was still finding his voice for Priad in the first few stories, but he has the voice down pat for the rest.
