Default Calgars Fury by Paul Kearney



Black Library - Calgars Fury eBook


Calgar's Fury

A Space Marine Battles novel
When an immense space hulk emerges into the Ultramar system, carrying with it the threat of something ancient and terrible, Marneus Calgar once again stands in defence of his realm.


READ IT BECAUSE
The Lord of Macragge returns to action in a classic Ultramarines style story – when there's a space hulk with something deadly on board, who else are you going to call but the boys in blue?

THE STORY
The Realm of Ultramar stands as a shining beacon of order and strength in a galaxy wracked by war and torment. Custodian of this realm, and Chapter Master of the Ultramarines, Marneus Calgar has fought many foes and won countless wars to ensure its borders remain safe. But when an immense space hulk emerges into the Ultramar system, carrying with it the threat of something ancient and terrible, it is Calgar once again who stands in defence of his realm, prepared to meet whatever horrors are aboard and discover the mystery at the heart of the ship dubbed Fury

Written by Paul Kearney.




...............................................

Just noticed this suprise release that wasn't in the comming soon. I am intrigued, and Paul Kearney have already proven he can write compelling Ultramarines with his last space marine battles novel Calgar's Siege. So I will be picking up this one once I am done with my current stack of reading.

Since Calgar's Siege was the novelization of his gateholding codex blurb, does anyone recognize if this book is based on a similar one?

I suspect the blurb is mistakenly branding it as a SMB novel. Theres a shot of the book here, and theres no sight of space marine battles on it:

Finished Calgars Fury. Its a mostly original story and set in 812m41. So a long time from the present, even captain Idaeus gets namedropped. I think they removed the Space Marine Battles tag because this story is involving a very infamous conflict's aftermath, than that specific conflict itself. And this followup conflict have coniviently been suppressed by the Inquisition to explain why we haven't heard of it before.

An infamous conflict which have been rather woefully unexplored in Black Library so far. Id certainly love to see -that- conflict explored more in proper SMB books, i think it could easilly support a series devoted to it.

The novel was a pretty decent astartes romp, lots of bolteraction and investigation balanced out by a coterie of compelling characters as we get to know them. The ultramarines themselves presented with same skill as in Calgars Siege, as well the main inqusition and mechanicum characters whom gets their share of time to shine.

The novel also have a masterfully done curveball of expectation, but the less the better said about it to not ruin -that- moment. I rate the story a round 8.0, I find its more solidly written than Calgars Siege, which suffered from underdeveloped orks. Paul has definitely improved in my eyes and I would buy his 40k works again.

Black Library no longer lists it as a space marine battles novel, having fixed the incorrect description.
