Wow wow wowsy wow.

After the recent dross released which haven't done anything for the story Deathfire comes right back with an excellent story which had me reading with glee until the very last page and the last page hit me right between the eyes in a way that only Fulgrim did before hand.

I was truly expecting the story to end on a cliffhanger with Numeon dying and nothing else happening but Vulkans return just made me "oh my god" out loud.

The battles throughout the novel are very well done and especially the ones at the end on Nocture itself.

I loved Thiel's Red Marked Ultramarines. I hope he/they get more air time and we get to see which if any Chapter he founds at the 2nd Founding.

The traitors are presented well too and the Death Guard get some much needed fleshing out and showing just how evil they are.

All in all we need more novels like this.

Very funny thread with the genuinely contrasting opinions.
I see no opinions other than the first... I would like to hear exactly why people didn't like the book, but they wouldn't care to indulge us.

I've enjoyed almost all of the books I've read. Sure, some are better than others, but I've never looked to anything the Black Library produces for fantastic literature.

When I buy a 40K/Horus heresy book, I'm looking for cool environments, brutal fight descriptions, and a degree of cheesy epicness. So far, they have all succeeded.
I am probably 100 pages from the finish and I like it quite a bit. Not my favorite, but it succeeds in entertaining me.

Action scenes have been nice and brutal and the characters are good enough, quite a few memorable quotes even.

All in all I'm enjoying it.
