Legend tells of a foolhardy expedition, led by the radical Magos Telok, which ventured out into the unknown space beyond the Halo Worlds in search of the 'Breath of the Gods' - an arcane device with the power to unmake and reshape the very stars themselves. Thousands of years later, the ambitious Lexell Kotov musters his Adeptus Mechanicus Explorator fleet and sets out to follow in mad old Telok's footsteps. With the might of the Imperial Guard and the Space Marines to augment his own forces, he searches for the hidden clues which will lead him to greatest power that the galaxy has ever known. But who knows what ancient perils may yet lie outside the Imperium and the dominion of mankind?

I got quite lost in this book. I found myself drifting off in my own thoughts more than I remember doing with basically any other book. It feels like very comforting background nonsense all the talk of mechanicus this and vast sprawling that and such. But at one point I discovered that some characters turned out to be opposing some other characters instead of being another faction on the same ship-world... fleet...? And that's just because of some unique characteristics, definitely not by names. Those are all the same to me in this. Now I'm not sure if I should re-read it assuming I was maybe too tired to listen to it, or go on to listen to the next one, and just float in it without following plot.
