Part of a largely subversive plot to dismantle the lore of 40k through the inclusion of daemon-like behavior within the setting of the Imperium written in as a positive thing. Brooks opens his way into writing Black Library material by attempting to cater to the political Left in nonsensical gender dysphoric behaviors which account for a large part of the anti-ethnocentric attitude of those who want to subvert a more contemporary political climate. All this catering does is alienate those from a more conservative background who appreciate the brutality of the Imperium and the honesty in which it suggests mankind would one day inevitably fall into as a means of desperate survival in a universe far darker and colder than the world in which we live that permits such bizarre and tolerant behavior counter to the idea which encompasses the setting.
It’s unfortunate that my review mentions exclusively the political elements of his book. But the mere fact that he included such political nonsense so blatantly kills the suspension of disbelief by producing concepts to the universe that directly act against Imperial creed.
If Warhammer 40,000 is a satire to a futuristic hellscape more akin to an Orwellian drama than Star Trek, then Brooks has succeeded in illustrating a dystopian future that no one could possibly be pleased with by enforcing tyrannical notions of gender dysphoria completely irrelevant to warfare or effective function in a completely utilitarian civilization made so by necessity when gender dysphoria is only permitted today by tolerant behavior.
Congratulations on subjecting readers to garbage. However, one only needs to read the New York Times to find such a fictitious and dysfunctional dystopia praised as such a good thing.
