Red fury starts off with a blood angel sergent on and his squad on the planet Eritaen. Their mission is to find the Flesh tearer chapter master and ask him to give some of his precious battle-brother to the blood angel chapter so that they can regain their numbers after the events that led them to the brink of civil war.

The blood angels and their successor chapters meet on baal but then the traitor fabius bile appears and wreaks havoc on the planet. Chapters unite and fend of the attack, but Fa...more

So, this review is going to be horribly biased because of my interest in the Blood Angels and all of the Successor Chapters. Especially the Flesh Tearers, who are some pretty important characters in the plot. Lucky me! So, the novel overall is fairly slow paced to begin with, and if you aren't a huge Blood Angels fan(or at least interested in them) I think you will view this as a chore, though since I am an interested fan, I loved it.

I think that they could not have chosen better antagonists, fr...more

Red Fury takes up with Rafen, now Brother-Sergeant, leads his squad on a planet where Chaos forces have taken hold. The Flesh-Tearer Space Marines drop a building on their heads. They know the Blood Angels will survive, and just want to be annoying, partly because they think they have come to interfere. In fact, Rafen came to deliver a message, to ask their Chapter Master Seth to come to a conclave of chapters -- successor chapters, also derived from Sanguinius.

Seth comes. So do many other chapt...more
Ugh. You would think that Lord Dante and Mephiston fighting with the Chapter Masters of the successor chapters would be cooler and more epic. It's not. C'mon Swallow! You want to show us how the Blood Angels are noble? Show them in relation to regular people. When they meet mere mortals show noblesse oblige not contemptuous disdain! More jet packs and what everyone wants to see... Death from Above! Furioso Dreadnoughts! Deeps striking Land Raiders! Fast Baal Predators! I'm so blase about these n...more

I give this book a hearty...meh. Swallow excelled in his story The Flight of the Eisentstein, but his treatment of the Blood Angels and their heroes is truly uninspired. The first two novels were mired in battles and gore, this one was mired in soap opera interactions and surprise surprise a sub-plot featuring Chaos and a Marine too stupid or proud to see it for what it is. Stick with well penned Marine novels by the likes of Abnett.

I enjoyed this book better than its two predecessors, Deus Encarmine and Deus Sanguinius.

It gave a better understanding of the Blood Angels better than the first two books and i think it had a more solid story.
