Hey mate,

Same here, I got it a week ago, and I just finished it. Nightbringer did leave me a bit disappointed. But Warriors of Ultramar was a classic. Good Fight scene's, deep pilot, everything one Ultramarine needs Dead Sky, Black Sun was okay. Not enough battles for me, and the pilot seemed to drag on forever until you got to the good parts.

Hope that helps,

I'm reading the 'smurf' omnibus. Awsome book, lol, I'm halfway through warriors of Ultramar right now, when the nids are first laying seige to the city and slip on the ice.

Yes, i finished readnig it.

Nightbringer was ok, i thought it dragged in the beggining but got better later on.
Warrior of Ultramar was cool, lots of battles and action!
But Dead Sky Black Sun is still my favorite, i like it because it the enemies are characters too, their not mindless xenos or foul eldar.

I haven't read this book, but one of my friends got it for another for his birthday. I've always wanted to learn more about ultramarines and this book has, what looks like, a lot of nice fluff on the chapter. I don't really want to buy it for myself, so I'm hopin' I can borrow it from my friend.

just finished the omnibus a month ago. I agree Dead sky, Black sun kind of dragged but I liked the first two novels. I thought the short story in the beginning rocked the hardest out of all the pieces in the book.

The chapter was later declared Worthless Extrimis after crying when shot at by Orks in the chapters first engagment.
