Slaves to Darkness, 7/10. Nice to catch up with the traitor primarchs, with seven of them featuring to a greater or lesser extent, setting up the advance on Terra.

Lords of Silence, 8/10. Very good look into the DG, and how they currently stand after their new codex.

Rise of the Ynnari: Ghost Warrior 5/10


Something about it just didn't inspire me - maybe the eldar were just too human. Also, plugging in one of the villains saying "make NNN great again" was really cringe-worthy. There's a difference between having political relevance and shunting the reader out of the story. But when the book worked, it worked.



The Last Hunt 8/10


The ending was a bit too tidy, but generally, it was a very solid book with a great feeling of atmosphere.


Ferrus Manus: Gorgon of Medusa 9/10


This one is still in flux. In general, it was a phenomenal book. The downside was the portrayal of Ferrus being insufficiently awesome, so to speak. Ferrus needed a portrayal that showed why he was chosen to lead seven Legions at Isstvan, and this wasn't it. At all.



Perturabo: Hammer of Olympia 1/10


The rest of the book was decent, the hrud were fittingly scary, but the portrayal of Perturabo was so abysmal as to break any numerical scale. I think Haley is just bad at writing "left-brain" characters - he writes Guilliman badly in Dark Imperium, and this abomination is even worse.

The Emperor has turned to Chaos. The dream of the Imperium has become a nightmare. But Horus and his Coalition stand against the dark, here at the end of time.

What was broken has been mended. And what was burned away can never be reforged.

Legacy of Dorn - 9/10


Watchers of the Throne: the Emperor's Legion - 5/10


Blood of Iax - 7/10


The Lords of Silence - 10/10


Shroud of Night - 9/10


Carcharodons: Outer Dark - 8/10


The Voice of Mars - 10/10


Ciaphas Cain:
For the Emperor 9/10
Caves of Ice 7/10
The Traitor's Hand 9/10
(yeah, I'm a bit behind on actually reading those....)


The Beast Arises:
I am Slaughter 7/10
Predator, Prey 6/10
The Emperor Expects 8/10
The Last Wall 8/10
(on sheer entertainment value, the Emperor Expects + Last Wall were both 10/10, but the inconsistencies are already piling up, and more generally I have issues with the presentation of the M32 setting.)



The Solar War - 7/10
