 Brilliant reading

| | See all Raider1987's reviews (24)

I loved this book, the only issue is that it uses methods that are too familiar to the reader to introduce the characters that the opening really wasn't as exciting as it should have been.

The book opens with a legion, the death guard fighting some Xeno race. This is how every legion and character has been introduced so far, with the legion wiping out some xeno world, or non compliant world. It just didn't feel like an original way to open the book and introduce the characters, but its only a small complaint.

The characters introduced are excellent, Garro shines above all others. The book takes place around the time of the 3rd book, and even has a scene from garros perspective fighting in a temple alongside Saul Tarvitz. The same battle was in Galaxy in flames from Saul Tarvitz point of view, so the scene is a little odd as we know exactly what is going to happen, you just see it through another pare of eyes.

Garro is a brilliant character, he has even spawned his own series of audio novels, and the book follows his perspective, fighting xenos, then Issvan 3, and his escape with a few characters from the opening trilogy. Although many of the events, battles etc have been talked about or in some cases even scene through different eyes, it is still an incredible book with exciting battles, and a great twist. Unmissable.

Really, really good book with a nice little twist at the end. This book really adds some pieces to the puzzle and develops on the storyline better than most. Highly recommended.

 Best HH book so far...

I have just finished Prospero Burns and have read all the other HH series and this is the best book so far by some way. James Swallow is by far the best author the Black Library has in my opinion. In this novel he continues to write with the same authoritative prose, descriptive genius and character driven style that typifies his early works on the Blood Angels legion. He captures the might and physicality of a space marine whilst ensuring that we also see glimpses of their inner strength and somewhat emotional volatility. Nathaniel Garro is a real character to add to the Warhammer universe and one that I hope continues to be involved with the Horus Heresy in some way. Highly recommended.

While this book in the Horus Heresy series is not as action packed as some of the other titles in the series it is still an excellent addition to the series. All I want to know is when are they going to let us in on what the mighty Space Wolevs were doing while these girly Legions were fighting?
