So there is hope yet.

However, ADB intends to tackle DA v NL soon and he intends to clear up the forum waffle re: whether the DA were completely loyal. The impression I got from ADB (but I might be wrong) is that they were clearly always loyal.

edit 2: getting forgetful. Sort of as you pointed out they also didn't want to drag out the HH series beyond Siege of Terra as they would get more grief from 'you're doing this to take my money' posse.

if it comes to the aftermath of the Heresy i would love to see a Raven Guard one, telling how Corax treid and spectacualy and heartbreakingly failed to rebuild his leigon using his fathers methods.

from what little i know he was devastated at the losses he suffered at Istvaan and wanted to rebuild his leigon quickly and that this was the reason he just simply headed off saying nevermore but it would make an interesting tale as to his mindset at the time and how he really was when he realised it was a failiure

iirc Deliverance Lost takes place during/post Istvaan V. Some of this is likely to be covered.

I think they should write a book about Petrubo's fall (so the destruction of Olympia) and definitely a book about the remains of the Iron Hands, Salamanders and Raven Guard after Istavann 5

Corax actually succeeded in rebuilding his legion, but the side effects of the methods he used were rather devastating.

Using the normal methods for producing marines would not have yielded enough warriors in the time the loyalists had before Horus and his allies reached Terra. So Corax looked for a faster way, and found cloning. That would help him, and then would lead to the damaging of the Raven Guard geneseed.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Then why are they even having that subplot in the books if its not going to be addressed?

If I recall correctly at BLL both Dan Abnett and ADB dropped hints about working on the Battle of Calth for next year. With Deliverance Lost, Fear to Tread, and the primarch novellas, next year is looking to be a great year for Heresy fans.

HH series should end with death of Horus. He is the mainpoint of this whole series.

Scouring should get its own like of books maybe similar to Space Marine Battles. Lots of interesting things happened during this time, but they were many years apart.
