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.

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

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*

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.

|World Eater XII||Well he wanted to pull over for a Burger king and Horus goes "man i ent pulling over" and gives him his own battlebarge so he can hand out the hate and discontent in the drive through!|

|bobss||Most importantly: Since when did Luc Sedirae have his own Battle Barge?|

|jasonbob||I think the fact they they butchered their battle brothers on both Istvaan battles shows they were already pretty dedicated. Plus Luc Sedirae died Erebus kept the fact that there were assassins to himself though I'm sure Horus knew. The rest of the Legion was probably in the dark though.|

|World Eater XII||I dunno but i think the use of assassins made those under Horus more sure of thier cause though!|
