Books-Novels Horus Heresy review warhammer 40k. Talos and his brethren in the 10th are well rounded, intriguing characters that drive Soul Hunters enjoyable narrative and get you cheering for the bad guys with abandon. Dec 20, Mark rated it it was amazing Shelves: Posted by IndieFaceKillah at Outside of battle he was a ruined thing, a shadow of what could and should have been” “He was a ruined, towering thing, of pain-spasms and sutured flesh” “An angel’s statue, desecrated by a hundred blades and left in the rain.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

One of my favorite reads in the the series so far. Jan 10, Darrel Altmann rated it it was amazing. Seeing the two traitor legions off handedly destroying the Ultramarines every two seconds just got boring, it’s although each author has to prove his book is the best and must do so by dembs,i his topic the “best” and most efficient at killing their enemies.

I didn’t really like how Magnus was portrayed in this book. Apr 07, John Rhodes rated it it was amazing. Angron’s conversation well fighting Guilliman was really good because I’d always thought all of that stuff I decided I would at least listen to what I’d already paid for. Only as you can probably guess Lorgar is up to something, where as he has previously tried to calm Angron down, he know encourages it.

I know the series is pretty basic, mindless bolter porn with distinctly average authors but when I invest a series I want at least a little consistency in the story. Worse still is that they are not only driving him insane, they are berrayer to kill him.

Possibly the darkest, most tragic book in the series yet. Lorgar and the survivors of First Heretic continue their development from the events of that novel and the novella Aurelian, including a painful realization about the nature of his rivalry with Guilliman, who arrives on stage just long enough for a brief three way Primarch smackdown.

Dec 14, Aleksi rated it it was amazing. There was only one problem – the fact that I own a copy of “Betrayer”.

The World Eaters’ loyalty is tested to and even beyond the breaking point again and again. It’s essentially the same story, told with different characters, but far, far better executed. This book is my 1 pick in the series to date.

She survived the wracking pain of severance from the Syrgalah’s great-hearted machine spirit – a soul dmebski adored and would willingly died to defend. Yeah, unless I get killed or banned from touching the IP, this series threatens to be a long one. Where the book seems to truly shine however is when it takes time to emphasise upon space warfare and duels between specific characters.

The novel is bloody as is the norm for a Black Library work, especially since entire worlds are killed during the “shadow crusade” by the World Eaters and Word Bearers Legions. The kind of step-by-step guides I mean are the White Dwarf ones, like so, that tell you to Basecoat, Layer, Glaze, and so on:. Write a customer review. Erebus returns to reclaim the title of cunt supreme from Fabius Bile and there are some excellent action sequences including ones with Titans, starships and the Legions’ mortal followers keeping the pace up and holding everything together.

Furthermore the author manages to reconcile Erebus between both what we saw in First Heretic and the treacherous viper he is from the others. He seems more comfortable with his possessed state, but he is also haunted by the events near the end of ‘The First Heretic’.


In this they seem to be written as dangers to themselves, especially in the invasion of Armatura, undisciplined and only achieving victory due to more controlled elements outside of the legion.

Though at the end, there was a few question I had that went unanswered. Shadows of Treachery Horus Heresy. His novels on chaos have proven to have all the magic ingredients: Right in the first few pages there are scenes which seem to address a number of criticisms and fan objections to Battle for the Abyss and the actions of Magnus the Red.

The Salamanders fight to protect innocent people and the World Eaters fight to soothe the Nails. There was much less combat dwmbski I was expecting, which made the scenes of brutal violence that much more engaging.

There is nothing to win, just a moment of satisfaction until the next fight. It focus’s more on Kharn and his interactions, and it really almost seems like he’s the true head of the legion at times, he certainly seems to be able to talk to Angron as an equal and not a soldier talking to his general. It pokes a a bit about chaos and order, obedience and hypocrisy, loyalty and betrayal, courage and honor, madness and corruption, faith and reason, brotherhood and edmbski, and some other things.

Mar 18, Michael rated it it was amazing. Like their Primarch, they are aware that there are ways to fight battles other than a frontal assault but aren’t particularly interested; the Nails drive them forward to unsubtle close aarln with their enemies, whatever the tactical layout.
