Lure of the Expanse features three adventures set amongst the unexplored stars beyond the Imperium. Wealth and glory await those with the courage to venture into the farthest reaches of space.

In Eye of the Needle, your Explorers will travel to the perilous port of Footfall to learn of a dark prophecy of long-lost riches. In The Heathen Trail, the Explorers find themselves on the path of uncountable riches... but they must cross the wild tracts of the Heathen Stars. Threats abound, but can the Explorers transform danger into rewards? Finally, in The World Beyond, the Explorers discover the location of the legendary treasure world. Now, can they prevail against a host of enemies?

This book consists of three adventures linked up to form one large endeavour for the group to strive for. As with many official adventures for many systems it is a bit hit and miss as to whether the players will enjoy it or not, depends very much on the individuals. But that aside, I think that the first adventure is very good and provides a lot of detail on Footfall, a place which is likely to feature in a lot of adventures, both official and created by the Games Master.
The second adventure isn’t bad and entails a hunt for signs in a race against time and competitors. In my opinion this adventure is a little bit thin and can be a little bit repetitive. However, like with the previous adventure it provides a lot of background info and describes the locations well.
The final adventure is the weakest. Having spent all this time and built up to a frantic race for the prize, the adventure leaves you feeling slightly let down. It seems to me to be the shortest adventure and whilst the other two have encouraged players to roleplay and think about their actions, the last adventure seems to consist of dice rolls and combat with a unsatisfying conclusion.

Despite the few disappointing bits in this book, I do thoroughly recommend it to anyone serious about running a Rogue Trader game. It’s a great story to link up with the introductory adventures if you’ve run them and has a great deal of information on the Expanse and the places within. It also is a great guide if, like me, you find the whole thing with endeavours and objectives a little bit of a handful as it clearly lays out what you get for doing what. Has helped me out considerably.
