Summary

With news of Horus' treachery spreading across the galaxy, the Great Crusade grinds to a halt as the primarchs and their Legions decide where their loyalty lies - with the Emperor or with the rebel Warmaster.
The Dark Angels, too, face a time of testing, both among the stars and on their home world, Caliban. Luther, once Lion El'Jonson's trusted second-in-command, now languishes as an exile in all but name while his master struggles to thwart the traitors' advance upon the forge world Diamat. But an ancient evil gathers its strength beneath the surface of Caliban, and the First Legion will soon be thrust into a deadly conflict where all that they know will be cast into doubt.

Really not very good.

Firstly: the voices that the narrator chooses for the main characters is infuriating. secondly, the astartes make numerous stupid mistakes and oversights that I simply cannot believe that warriors who have fought in hundreds of wars could ever make. the primary example of this being where they totally miss that a battle has not happened ina place where they thought that it had. beyond this the plot is simply OK.

I personally wish that I hadnt used a credit on this.

Enjoyable story marred by poor character voices

Unlike some, I enjoyed the continuation of the tale told in Descent of Angels and felt this added a lot of depth to the period.

Unfortunately however, the voices for several characters, most notably Nemiel, seriously detracted from the overall experience. This was a real shame, as they made the characters in question seem feeble and childlike despite being Astartes.

Overall enjoyable, however perhaps one you could read to preserve the characters image

A lot better than I had expected.

So, before I started reading this one, I had heard a lot of people saying it was one of the weaker horus heresy books, and so I went in with it with some strong reservations... I have to say though, it really was not one of the weaker ones.
There are multiple parts in the book that are completely fresh, ideas and themes and action that had previously not been seen in the heresy, and quite simply, I really enjoyed it.

Its good

This was a better Dark Angels book than the Decent of Angels. Unfortunately it leaves you hanging but in a good spot to help build suspense.
