BOOK REVIEW: Flesh of Cretacia by Andy Smillie

REVIEW SUMMARY: Smillie keeps the Flesh Tearers love flowing.

MY RATING:

BRIEF SYNOPSIS: Chapter Master Amit and a company of space marines descend upon Cretacia to exterminate orks but find a different sort of enemy once they make planetfall.

CONS:
