Also, these 'most' that say that Vengeful Spirit is bad are quite interesting. I read your review of it, LotN and completely agree.

I understand some people not agreeing with people's reviews, but constantly saying 'most' people didn't like it kinda sounds ignorant. Everyone has their own opinions, so no one has the right to say 'they must be living in a cave no where near an internet connection'. You may feel that way and maybe a majority do too, but I'm sure there some intelligent people who like at least parts of the books in mention.

Lots of opinions from people thinking its fact.

I dont know about enough supporters, but personally I only have a few issues with the book to be perfectly honest

But there were a fair few good things to like about it. The depiction of Chaos for one was brilliant, the Red Angel was a great character and concept, Sanguinius' relationship to his Legion and his choice of how to deal with the Flaw was very interesting, Mkani Kano and Meros were memorable and likeable characters (particularly Kano as I always wondered how a Librarian would feel about being demoted back to foot soldier), and Sanguinius's confrontation with Ka'Bandha and Kyriss was epic.

That and unlike most here, I don't hate James Swallow.


By here, I mean Heresy Online.

I think you gave it a very glowing review...your taste is your prerogative...it's just very different from mine

I'll admit that after a year or two, and reading newer Heresy novels, I wouldn't score it that high anymore. I would actually say now that Fear to Tread is about an 8.4/10, which to me is a Very Good book. I still think it's in the Top 10 Heresy books, but not the Top 5 anymore, due to new releases displacing it.

I may do a re-read soon and re-evaluate my thoughts.

I felt that the Signus setting had such enormous potential, Swallow should have done a LOT more with it, my disappointment with FTT is mainly the missed potential. Image ADB having a swing at it, I felt the BA were portayed as standard SM, but with red paint and anger issues, nothing more

Please direct all other Fear to Tread comments to the following thread..

Does anyone else feels that SW and AL are the most wanked legions on the loyalist side and traitor side respectively?

I wonder who is going to be portrayed in a more impressive light in this outing

If you mean underrated, then yes. At least with the Alpha Legion.

If that's not what you mean, I am terribly sorry. Please let me know what you mean and I'm sure I will agree with you. Hah

AL and SW...are underrated?
