I understand some people not agreeing with people's reviews, but constantly saying 'most' people didn't like it kinda sounds ignorant. Everyone has their own opinions, so no one has the right to say 'they must be living in a cave no where near an internet connection'. You may feel that way and maybe a majority do too, but I'm sure there some intelligent people who like at least parts of the books in mention.
Lots of opinions from people thinking its fact.

I dont know about enough supporters, but personally I only have a few issues with the book to be perfectly honest

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

But there were a fair few good things to like about it.

That and unlike most here, I don't hate James Swallow.


By here, I mean Heresy Online.

I'll admit that after a year or two, and reading newer Heresy novels, I wouldn't score it that high anymore. I would actually say now that Fear to Tread is about an 8.4/10, which to me is a Very Good book. I still think it's in the Top 10 Heresy books, but not the Top 5 anymore, due to new releases displacing it.

I may do a re-read soon and re-evaluate my thoughts.

I felt that the Signus setting had such enormous potential, Swallow should have done a LOT more with it, my disappointment with FTT is mainly the missed potential. Image ADB having a swing at it, I felt the BA were portayed as standard SM, but with red paint and anger issues, nothing more

Does anyone else feels that SW and AL are the most wanked legions on the loyalist side and traitor side respectively?

I wonder who is going to be portrayed in a more impressive light in this outing

If you mean underrated, then yes. At least with the Alpha Legion.

If that's not what you mean, I am terribly sorry. Please let me know what you mean and I'm sure I will agree with you. Hah
