Horus Rising

I really enjoyed it. Sorta weird seeing all the traitor legions loyal and praising the Emperor. I never read much about Horus as a participating character, but it was nice seeing him as a char before he was tainted. Also it was cool for me at least to see a few of more memorable chaos chars in the story aka Lucien, and Abbadon. False Gods also shed a lot of light on things, the slow evolution of Horus descending to his egomaniacle self we all know and love. I love the description of Angron near the end of the book. There really is to much about the series so far for me to pinpoint specifics, but as a whole I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to getting Galaxy in Flames tonight/tomarrow. I just love getting the whole background on the Heresy and how it got under way. In my eyes I think it all started because Lorgar got scolded by Daddy Emperor, so in a fit decided to burn down his Dad's house so to speak. But I may be wrong not having read the final book. Though I read the story of Lorgar in Tales of Heresy, which I think was the seed of deceit that started it all.

Again I may be wrong, these are the conclusions I have come to from the stories I have read. BTW, I detest Erebus and the Word Bearers of all the 40K armies, basically because of the books. But it's a fun sort of hate. I can see myself using the WB's in any fiction I ever write as the main and most hated anti-heroes.

Thanks for reading and any feedback/corrections are appreciated.

Just wait till you get to Battle for the Abyss, what a book!
Oh and mustn't forget Legion, not quite as jaw dropping as BftA, but an ok novel I suppose.

Kickback, I'm amazed that you found Battle for the Abyss intresting. For me, it was the worst book in the whole series and nearly the worse Black Library book that I've ever read.

Also, Tarvitz, wait until you get to The First Heretic before making a Judgment on the Word Bearers. In my opinon, they're my favourite traitor legion.

Read 1st heretic before BotA

That way you'll have some love of the word bearers to act as a buffer

Lorgar never started the heresy because of his telling off, He started the heresy because he saw the truth...

As "official" reviewer here, find it strange that you consider BftA worst book as you rated it 6/10 and you rated Descent of angels and its sequel Fallen Angels as 4/10. Just makes me wonder whats rating system basically is for? Or things changed because so many others think its worst? Not kicking your ass here, just wondering.
