You don't know that, your assuming that. Now they've assasinated Luc, wait for Horus to come down to enact his revenge and shoot him then.

And again your assuming that about Spear, he was clearly experimented on by the temple but you have no idea whether he was different to normal Pariahs in the first place, you would have thought they would experiment on more than one incase Spear died or something else happened during testing. By only experimenting on him alone suggests to me he was already different somehow

I appreciate the info/your opinions. I assumed that Kell died at the end, but was unsure of how died. The book implies that he kamikaze's into Horus's flagship...which is frigging stupid, but oh well. I thought he was going to attempt to board the vessel and get to the bridge where we would get a cool fight and some good dialogue. Would have been epic. I also was curious as to how Spear would have infiltrated the Imperial Palace in order to get to the Emperor. With the Emperor's blood inside him could he imposter him like he did with his other victims?

I the Darkness, i think If Horus thought their was an assassin on the surface, he couldve just sent a legion down to hand out the hate and discontent.

I can't really see an assassin outsmarting a Primarch...or in the eternal words of that russian guy in the trade thread, Primarh

Just finished it. Thought it was good. As for spear, he was altogether different prior to experimentation by the clade. Erebus added some extras but spear's abilities don't conform to anything we already know about.
Kell dies apparently although that is a bit of a low point . Seemed totally futile and wasteful. On the other hand the thing with his sister had messed him up a bit.
The thing i was most impressed with was the humanising of all the types of asassins. From the old codex they were practically robots(in action and mindset) but this book really expanded on what they were like inside. The calidius, vindicare and the culexis all now have a semi human face and we can see that they are actually people. The garantine was the best though, his portrayal is excellent, his potency and mindset.
I found the concept of the infocyte to be quite engaging as well, the digital asassin makes a lot of sense really.

To answer the last question posed by the OP

I didnt like this one much, among the weakest of the HH so far. TS by far the best one. Very much looking forward to FH and PB!

Yeah Thousand Sons was one of the best without a doubt. It still didn't feel as Grand as the first three though.

Its sort of weird reading a book but knowing that neither of the targets die from these assassination attempts.

However it was quite clear to me that the repurcussions of killing Hours would be alot smaller(in a way) than if the Big E got "speared" so early on in the Heresy.
