Straken : A Hero's Death

Surrounded by deadly aliens and rescuing someone who wants to stay where he is, Straken’s mission seems doomed to failure…

The Apex est une nouvelle qui remplit parfaitement son rôle en nous offrant en peu de temps du Catachan et du Straken bien viril ainsi qu'une superbe ambiance de jungle infestée de tyranides. Straken contre Prédator.
