I was pleased he survived and went on to be part of the grey knights. I've not listened to Grey Angel or Vengeful spirit yet so I don't know what they've done with him, but as a concept, I thought it was excellent.

I certainly wasn't starting a witchhunt, just comparing fanboyism. This blokes spelling and diction are nowhere near Lux's. So take your red font and stick it were the sun don't shine.

Now, i understand some people were not to fond on loken surviving istvaan(to each there own), but i really like this decision because, to me, loken captures every part of the luna wolves, every part of what it means to be a space marine, and, i feel, it all has to end with loken. What i mean is, the story shoud come full circle. Where loken started the series off, he should also end it.

I also have one juicy prediction, tho i could be completly wrong. I feel loken will play a major part in Aximands death. It could be loken defeating him in combat during the seige, but i think......loken will be dueling abaddon on the VS during the seige, Aximand will finally see what has become of his legion, turn loyal once more,charge abaddon, then get crushed to a pulp. Just a threory.

So, what do you guys think of Garviel Loken?
Loken is one of the best char. He is by far the best thing Abnett has created. I think a fitting death for Loken would have been that he was the one that Horus destroys on the Vengeful Spirit and shows it to the Emperor. This perpetual nonsense looks like it will be the ending *Shrug*

As far as him coming back BL needs to be careful. Too many 'comic book deaths' will destroy the story. Once not so bad, but they did it with Cyrene. I really like Saul and Argel Tal, but they need to remain dead.

Best Loken moment... Him knocking Lucius the F**k out!

Hmmm.... I was trying to visualize how I'd feel about that. I remember CotE had something really cool about the Mournival and the different aspects of each of the characters tp Horus. No, I feel like Loken's death and Horus' complete corruption are symbolized well on Istvaan.

I don't feel like it today but perhaps I can go on a search. CotE's little article was actually a really awesome depiction of what Loken was to Horus. I think it even condemned the character for failing to do his part. As far as researching certain elements of the legion, I found it to be the deepest look into the legions. If Dan really created the Mournival and those characters to reflect those aspects then he is clearly a genius.

While i do like oll as a perpetual, i do think horus killing loken would be sort of fitting, tho, i also think loken should witness horus die....im fine with either

I read the books, than after screening crap books me and my wife read the good ones together.

When we read "Galaxy in Flames" she cried when Loken died (and Torgadon too). At the end of the book she was convinced "Loken isn't dead" (she did give up on Torg though). As much as I liked Loken I didn't want to see him alive because I can't stand 'comic book deaths'. We argued about that for a while until it was confirmed that Loken was still alive.

I can live with one, maybe two incredible saves that make little sense. Crazy stuff does happen. But at best we are 1/3 of the way through the Heresy and I think BL has used up their quota of miraculous rebirths.

Even Torgadon is back in a way as some daemon thing. When they die, they die. If you want them to stick around than don't kill them in the first place.
