It drives home how evil the Imperial Order is, but it is extraordinarily offensive, crass, and frankly childish of the author to have done so in such a way, and in such vivid detail.

Following an inner prompting beyond all reason, the last Confessor will wager everything on a final desperate gambit, and in so doing, she will change the world forever. I almost didn't get this book because of the cantankerous reviews. All in all, the world building here is horrid. His skull is so thick, I would like to thump it with a big rock. Some Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil and thus unleashing evil on the world above.
