I'm enjoying this series no end. It has been said i agree that some of them drag ala false gods but its to be expected. The fighting and war narration makes up for that ten fold in my opinion.
The best i think so far is a toss up between Dan abnetts Horus rising or The first half of Fulgrim. I say the first half of fulgrim because i havent the heart to read the second half and read about the downfall of the Emperors children as i think they are awesome.
I was a bit miffed about never finding out why Mortarion turned to chaos, his motives were never revealed in Flight of the eisenstein. I think it doesnt really need to be said why Angron goes to chaos, i mean he was pratically there already but it would have been nice to hear Mortarions view. It also strikes me that the book Fulgrim is the first to really get personal with the primarchs. You get to hear Fulgrims/Ferrus Manus thoughts and feelings first hand not just regurgetated by some 3rd party. I that thought was odd. The Primarchs before hand had been sort of above it all and while constantly narrated about and talked to, you never really got to know what went on it their minds. I dont know if seeing that in Fulgrim was a good thing or bad. Any thoughts
(I also wondered what the hell happened to Saul Tarvitz and his unit?)
