Default Deathfire - Best HH book in ages ***spoilers***

Wow wow wowsy wow.

After the recent dross released which haven't done anything for the story Deathfire comes right back with an excellent story which had me reading with glee until the very last page and the last page hit me right between the eyes in a way that only Fulgrim did before hand.

I was truly expecting the story to end on a cliffhanger with Numeon dying and nothing else happening but Vulkans return just made me "oh my god" out loud.

The battles throughout the novel are very well done and especially the ones at the end on Nocture itself.

I loved Thiel's Red Marked Ultramarines. I hope he/they get more air time and we get to see which if any Chapter he founds at the 2nd Founding.

The traitors are presented well too and the Death Guard get some much needed fleshing out and showing just how evil they are.

All in all we need more novels like this.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but is this a serious thread, or are you being sarcastic?

No it isn't sarcastic, I genuinely loved it from start to finish.

I'm literally laughing at the reaction to this thread. In my head "finally, a positive sounding review of a HH novel!" then came the responses

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

You people are really getting bored with Black Library. I completely understand it.

Zerachiel pm me since we both think the same way about the book. I don't want haters to intrude in our fanboy discussion.

For the record, I am actually pretty stoked to see something positive about a HH book. I do love my 30/40k, regardless of whether each book is a NYT Bestseller or not. I also don't care about the chronology of events, so if I see a good review I'm more inclined to skip to that book.
