Default False Gods, the worthy sequal

I bought it yesterday, when it was released, and it is way above expectations. Even though it's a completely different author it managed to carry the story forward perfectly.

I dont know how many other people have read it, but i was wpndering how they feel it it

A great book, I read the first one and both of these books are awsome.

Now we just have to wait for the last one.

Bumpity bump.

I've had this book lying around for about a month now, I somehow found the time to read it prior to exams, amongst all other things.

I have to say, It's a great book, the whole series is awesome, and very well written, as well as being suprisingly addictive to read. Can't wait for the next book (Galaxy in Flames) that comes out in October here.

Read through most of it... feth, it's good!

That said, I'm amazed Abaddon and his like were not shot on the grounds of being unstable and traitorous long ago.

maybe they were. maybe its all an illusion

(that isnt supposed to mean anything)

Anyway, im a bit worried about galaxy in flames, because one of the things i loved about this and horus rising was the way it wasnt all about fighting, in fact, theres hardly any in false gods! And they were still great!

In the bit in white dwarf 320 and it says

If that means 100%, then does that mean the entire book is gonna be a battle. Against what makes this a great series!

Action comes in other ways than just fighting. i found that horus rising's action metre was at about 90some percent, even though it wasn't all fighting.

Just read the third...

Ben Counter is the Author. He wrote the Grey Knights and Soul Drinkers novels.

It. Is. Amazing.

I started to read it and I just finished it. All I can say is holy shit. You. MUST. ALL. BUY. IT.
