Dunn - cough, could be another Pandorax, or another Dark Vengeance. Well - 50 % - 50 %. At least this is not a Cretacia - the poorest novella from Andy

Finished Crimson Dawn, found it a good read about how an astartes chaper can be pushed to the brink and over it. As well expounding more on the story of the pre-fall Crimson Sabres.

I don't like how an entire chapter got corrupted by a daemon. Why don't daemons corrupt all or most of the chapters then? What's stopping them?

And so the novel offers nothing other than having a servant of Tzeentech rather than Khorne do all the corrupting and some brief info on the Crimson Sabres pre-fall?

Not too exciting it seems.

The majority of the novella features their fateful attack on Umedia and the consequences of it as the voices spreads and steadilly haunts the chapter.






Incidentally, there is a chapter with a similar fate to the Crimson Slaughter. They heard voices too.

Malus Darkblade,

I kind of agree. It makes the space marines chapters allot weaker and vulnerable to deamon corruption. The only explanation is that the crimson sabres is weaker compared to other chapters .

Well, look at the Blood Drinkers. They are hovering on the edge too, thanks to the machinations of a single daemon whom found a weak link.
