I received a copy of Rites of Passage through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Rites of Passage is the first novel in the Lady Chettamandey series by Mike Brooks. It also fits into the world of Warhammer 40,000, which should give you an idea of how much material it’s going to have to work with.
Lady Chettamandey is recently widowed. She’s also a Navigator, and an exceptionally talented one at that. Her talent doesn’t stop there, as she’s also a quick mind and mind – meaning that she’s got loads of plans for the Navigator House Brobantis. Namely, she wants to take charge.
But that was all before the disaster. Now she’ll be content simply to save her people. And her planet. For there is a dark plan happening, one that involves using the warp as a weapon. Her unique skillset has put her at the forefront of this latest battle.
“It seems we’re in agreement, then. I also don’t wish to die a horrible, painful death, Tekoa, and I need your help to ensure that both of us, along with anyone we’ve ever loved, can avoid that.”
