About this deal

The four arrive at the Vengeful Spirit's hangar and plan to steal a Thunderhawk but are intercepted by Maggard. The book literally follows straight on from False Gods - Istvaan III has rebelled against the glorious illumination of the Imperium "those blighters" *shakes fist at them*. As I said in my first post, The authors (Abnett, McNeill and Counter) do excellent jobs of forming memorable characters in a universe known for its large scale. It was many months later, as the legion was moving in system in the Istvaan system that Artuas felt something was truly amiss.

This book just needed a few more POV character telling their side of the story and this would have rivaled nearly any book in the Heresy as the best of the best.Though the rebels are swiftly crushed, Horus' treachery is finally revealed when the planet is razed by virus bombs and Space Marines turn on their battle-brothers in the most bitter struggle imaginable. There's some great stuff in here, especially in terms of action, and the way that Ben portrays Angron in battle without succumbing to what must be the overwhelming urge to overdo it is spine tingling.

While as I know many who say this is the best out of the first three books I honestly think it’s the worst.

The action-packed conclusion to the opening trilogy of The Horus Heresy and the start of the Warmaster’s march to Terra.

Asda Great Deal
