I'm fairly certain the Emperor didn't know about about the assaination order, never mind autherise it, wasn't that the point of the end conversation?

Probably wasn't Sediraes own battlebarge as it were, just one of the Luna Wolves was on.

Wasnt the end convo more about using all of the imperiums resources together? and for the assassins to be brought more to the fore?

While Horus was completely against the use of *spears*

Let the Galaxy Burn.

As per my interpretation:

The Officio Assassinorum does not report to the Emperor. It is explained early on in the novel that they work under "don't-ask-don't-tell" conditions. Just like Vanus does not tell the Emperor everything he is up to - he is trusted to do what he must to fulfill his duty.

My opinion:

Kell's death. Felt like we were left hanging - "I am the weapon"? Expected more.

Apologies for the threadnomancy, but I've only just finished Nemesis (I'm filling in the gaps of the books I've missed).

Something the original posts don't seem to have picked up was that Horus knew about the Imperial assassins, which is why he sent a decoy down to the planet and why he then knows what's happening with the attack on the ship at the end. So he had a traitor highly placed in the Imperium, and there were only a handful of people who knew about this operation. Was this ever followed up? I can't remember reading about such a high ranking informant in any other books.
