Description

The use of setting in the novels has been exemplary consistently, from the very beginning with 63-19, to Murder, to the Interex, to Davin and its moon, to the Auretian Technocracy, to Isstvan III, and of course the Vengeful Spirit itself. It serves its job, hits the right notes for 40K fans, but doesn’t have quite the wonder of “Horus Rising.

In summary: this is a satisfying completion to what I think is the first arc of this story: the great heresy against the Emperor of Man. Ben Counter’s Galaxy in Flames is the third act in the opening Horus Heresy Trilogy, and the end of the only three books so far to feature the Sons of Horus as the main cast. Whereas in the first two books, the thrill came from the revelations outside of battle as much as they came from the gunfights, in Galaxy in Flames it is all about the conflict. At Istvaan III the Death Guard, Emperor's Children, Sons of Horus, and World Eaters send 1/3 of their legions that are suspected of being Loyalists to the surface. Loken was built up by Abnett and then McNeill to be a conflicted soul - tortured at the idea that his brothers are being taken over by the power of the warp; starting to hear 'the music of the spheres'; but here his character development was limited.Whether Dorn did this over concerns and mistrust of his gifted sons, or if the primarch could perceive some other purpose for them remains to be fleshed out. Minor characters are brought front and center and given larger roles and ones I had come to love are unfortunately no longer with us, it is the Horus Heresy after all, and rebellions have consequences. If you aren’t sure where to start, then there might be easier starts but sometimes it’s good to start at the deep end. lento in alcuni punti ma sicuramente appassionante, segue e arricchisce la storylinr creata negli anni 80 per WH40k approfondendo il background e le motivazioni degli eretici. This is a small point, but I liked how some characters who were fairly secondary at first have become more prominent as the plot progresses.

That seems to be to be more an issue with the overall direction of the series, and the task he was set to fulfil. There are two novels in the Horus Heresy so far that have had to deal with war on a scale like this, and they are in my point of view Galaxy in Flames and Dan Abnett’s Know No Fear.He could not say what it was this feeling he had, and it angered him as this feeling flew in the face of all the honour and pride he had felt since his induction into his beloved legion, but it filled him with a sense of foreboding that drove him act. But when the fleeing Eisenstein is damaged by enemy fire, it becomes stranded in the warp - the realm of the Dark Powers. Though the rebels are swiftly crushed, Horus’s 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. The pose was intended to not be one indicating direct fighting as i have a preference for the divination powers and i wanted to showing him acting in a support role because of his powers. I've read a few reviews that the writing is poor, that the prose detaches all the intelligent development from the previous two novels.

If this had been a spin-off to the Istvaan III main book then I would have enjoyed it a lot more instead of it being the final volume in the opening of the Heresy. What did bother me is the sort of 'long running series slow-down' which seems ever present in epic length book series.After False Gods, Counter takes the Sons of Horus to Isstvann where they put their latest plan into action. Instead, Dorn mandated that they should be confined to barracks upon the Phalanx until further notice. Ben's character progression was good and in-keeping with how the other authors had treated Loken, Tarvitz etc . It is not badly done, but it obscures the major point of difference in the Warhammer 40K universe, that there are no real good guys. Leading the surviving loyalists he pulled out of the fight, Tarvitz takes advantage of Eidolon's undisciplined attack and manages to repel the assault.

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.I gave the previous two books very favourable reviews, and I wanted to like this one - I really did! 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.
