Default Horus Rising

Hi!


I'll be picking up a copy of this at the weekend:




Any thoughts on the book?

Hi!


No feedback yet, strange...


I finshed it this morning - and it is really something special.


Don't want to spoil it for anyone, though - however, you may want to have a read of the first chapter and see what you think!

Ahem.

PS I agree, certainly something special. Probably one of the better books the BL has produced. It's certainly up there with Execution Hour and Shadowpoint.

I had a feeling you'd mention the BFG novels...


I hope we'll have a follow-up to Shadow Point eventually!

Overall; good stuff, Abnett managed to give the Space Marines personalities without overly humanising them, the story was enjoyable to read and Horus was just the right balance of scary-imposing and charismatic.

The book beats every book i have ever read. It has made me completely rethink 40k nad forced me into starting as new army. The best thing about it in my opinion is that it isnt just war. Its the way that the Imperium has changed, and changes during the course of the book, up to
