Default Thoughts on Betrayer *minor spoilers*

I just finished reading Betrayer..

I am impressed, it is a masterfully written book that goes deeply into the heads of the heads of the World Eaters and really getting to know their nature and behavior. How they damned themselves in willingly copying their broken Primarch and hammering the Butchers Nails into their head to try reach the bond of brotherhood all other legions effortlessly had with their genesires, but which was denied the children of the broken Primarch. His backstory is also expounded upon, revealing hitherto unknown details as Angron's lifestory comes full circle. You come to understand his choices and why he did them.



Even minor spoilers can be tagged please.

I have not read this yet, however given that the discussion is in relation to a particular book it may sit better in the BL section.

Ah, I thought it was enough by warning in the title of the thread, my apologies.

All in all I found it one of ADB's best writtings yet, and if this is the level of writting he is going to use for The Master of Mankind, it will be one incredible book. It will certainly be -QUITE- difficult for many other HH authors to be on a comparable level. But with The First Heretic and now Betrayer ADB have shown he is capable of carrying the Horus Heresy.

Could you in detail describe the fight between Angron and Russ? Does Russ horrifically lose?

Also could you in detail describe the fight between Lorgar, Angron, and Gulli? I was surprised to see Gulli was so gifted in martial combat to be able to keep at bay two primarchs, one being one of the best hand to hand fighters, while the other being the second strongest psyker out of all the primarchs (magnus).
