Sounds like horseshit McNeil would pull.

ADB is better than that.
Really I thought that sounded like an excellent twist.

They shouldn't have bothered bringing in the clone crap to the main storyline and de-mythologising it in the first place. Who was it came up with Fabius having a load of Ferrus Manus clones in his fridge freezer? Kyme? Silly plot.

That people still believe this. No Abaddon is the by-product of many authors handling the same character and not everyone gave him a good nor proper charactization. He is protrayed as stiff, angry, hot-headed and in some cases even stupid in the early HH-novels. He got a proper face-lift in Soul Hunter, and then again in this novel. No it's not a clone, it's ADB trying to justify the character by making him interesting. The change could be explained from his travelling for, the Gods know how long, inside the Eye where he grew wise.

The Abaddon character is really a case of too many cooks stirring the pot

ADB just happens to be the best cook out of those who've stirred

Abaddon was originally written as a stereotypical Angry Marine

Everything I am reading about this while trying to find the second novel, says it is a single novel called Abandon: Talon of Horus, and there won't be a series.

If anyone knows any different and has a link to a legit page with dates on releases, please share them with me.

I don't have the sources to hand, but ADB has stated on numerous occasions that this is the start of a large series. He says as much in the foreword of the First Edition of the novel as well. He has said that this will be his Gaunts Ghosts, or that others have told him that it will be. Next novel, tentatively titled Black Legion, will be out next, hopefully next year some time.

Trust us, it is going to be a series.
