Scars - definitely one of the best 5 HH novels. It's so refreshing and adventurous - that it really helps to still love and stay with the HH after the clusterfucks, which were: Fear to Thread, Vulkan Lives, Mark of Calth and Unremembered empire.
To Angel of Blood
This duel really was a best dexterity in the Galaxy vs the best enthropy endurance and vitality.
Anyway i really was hoping for the duel Khan vs Alpharius (both of them). Chris, has long time ago was thinking on that, but in the end, he has chosen the duel with Mortarion.
And from 1 point it's good - because it is really very cool. But from the other point it would be much better (in my humble opinion) to see the style of Alpharius, then he has no choice but to fight personally
I do still find it odd that the Space Wolves were even involved at all.
The continuation of their nebula battle would be shown (sadly) in the Thief of Revelations / Hunter's Moon duo audio.
I always prefer a written form.
Anyway it's becoming a tradition for Black Library to show the synopsis for the novel - which would not be the case for it. Both skirmishes with AL were exactly that - skirmishes and nothing more. It's not a big uneven battle at Chondax, as was written in the Visions of Treachery (which i own)
Also seems that all the covers from Neil Roberts - show us the events happening at the last pages of the novel -(Remember Unremembered empire, now this)
It was by far one of my favorite duels. I have a hard time thinking of a better one right now. I think the best thing about it was its cinematic quality
Definitely. Especially moments with 'Silence', swirling sand and dust
The problem of Scars - is the same, which is stalking the HH novels for quite a long time now. Nobody dies...
Not at least 1 major player, except for AT, has died in the last 5 books. Big battles are absent. Where are the millions dead??? Big battlefields? Even in the last episode engagement of the Scars not even 1 of the ships died. If this scenario will dominate other HH books in the future, we will be praying for someone to die
