And what a meal it is. Food metaphor over. I very much enjoyed Fallen Angels for two reasons. Firstly, it gave meaning and purpose to Descent of Angels. I railed against that novel in this series how it was a fine stand alone book but did not deserve ...more
All true, but heart insists - yeah, maybe, but it had SPEHS MAHREENS fighting mutant worms, zombies, cyborgs and other SPEHS MAHREENS! Also treachery and mighty fallen heroes!
And I am like, OK, five stars.
Diamat storyline: 2/5. (This story arc was totally uninteresting.)
So many unanswered questions!!! As a Dark Angels space marine player in my youth, I desperately want to know the answers. I will have to wait for the next Dark Angels book I suppose.
• The Horus Heresy is the Black Library’s premium SF series, with demand for each new title growing stronger and stronger.
• Author of two of the Black Library’s top-selling fantasy series, Darkblade and Time of Legends: Nagash, Mike Lee now turns his considerable writing talents to Warhammer 40,000.
• Distinctive art and foiled covers for the different editions makes the series stand out on the shelves, and very attractive for collectors.
• Since the publication of Descent of Angels, fans h

•First and foremost, I thought this book was boring. I wasn’t a huge fan of Descent of Angels, but that book was at least kinda fun for most of this. This book was just bolter porn with a small sprinkling of other things in it.
•Luther snapped hard in this book, and I cant blame him. He messed up ONCE by hesitating for a microsecond and the Lion banished him to Caliban for it. I can’t blame hi ...more

The first half is a little slow, as the split narratives of the characters are slowly revealed. The plot vamps up, and gets really exciting; however, it ends in a very quick fizzle, which was exceedingly unsatisfying.
Part of the issue I think with this particular book is it is really 2 separate stories whi ...more
I liked the divided plot lines and the endings were well done. Too bad it was such a chore to read.
The plot is split into two perspectives – one within the Chapter's home planet, Caliban, and inside an Imperial Forge world, Diamat, threatened by an attack commenced by the Traitor Legions.
Both sides of the story ...more

Overall this story, written by two authors, was great. It tells the story of the I Legion, the Dark Angels of the Adeptus Astartes from it's beginnings on Caliban to it's opening role in the Horus Heresy.
I gave Scanlon's book three stars though I really meant 3.5 stars (Can't figure out how to give half ratings...) as the only thing that marred the book was the lackluster ending. But the rest of the book, and yes I ...more
