Well this one came out of nowhere. 55€, most likely a novella.



ABOUT THIS BOOK
Space Marine Legends: Ragnar Blackmane will be released on Friday the 28th of August. To be among the first to know when it goes on sale, set your reminder now.

THE STORY
Ragnar Blackmane is a legend of the Space Wolves, the youngest warrior ever to rise to command a Great Company. As he battles the forces of Abaddon the Despoiler on the war-ravaged world of Cadia, Ragnar remembers the events that brought him to this place and time, and relates two great sagas from his past, each bringing him into conflict with brother Space Marines from other Chapters, the secretive Dark Angels and savage Flesh Tearers. As these tales influence the events of the present, Ragnar comes to realise that his past actions have consequences...

READ IT BECAUSE
We've seen Ragnar Blackmane as a young Blood Claw before, but this is the first time we get to see him in action in all his Wolf Lord-ly glory! It's a fascinating look at the Space Wolves' relations with other Chapters as well, with both their old rivals, the Dark Angels, and the equally savage and bad-tempered Flesh Tearers turning up.

I need to know the page count. If this is an actual novel, 300-400 pages, then I will get it. It's ADB and Ragnar f**king Blackmane, there's no chance i'd miss that. But if it's a novella, then sorry but no. No more novellas for me.

It makes the 30k Space Wolves scum. The 40k Space Wolves on the other hand are rockstars.

Cleansing the most tainted and potentially most deadly of all the traitor legions makes them scum how, exactly?
Actually. They were given orders to destroy this world way before the Thousand Sons fell into the ways of Chaos

They were slaughtered because they used the psychic powers of the warp. Which the Emperor had deemed illegal. With some outside whisperings of people who had to force the hand of Mangos the Red.

So, to be fair, they came and slaughtered the entire planet (women and children also, lets not forget.) because of the word of the hypocritical Emperor. So, unfortunately, they were not this deadly traitor legion that you speak of, well when the attack happened.

Here's another question. If ADB is doing this series now, what will happen to the last two books of the Black Legion series?

Maybe he will just continue writing them since, you know, it‘s possible to write several stories at once.

Actually, Magnus made pacts with Tzeentch decades before the Heresy to cure his legion sons of the mutations that were destroying them and kept them out of action for most of the the Great Crusade, and many TS had bonded with tutelaries, which it transpires were demons. The TS fate was sealed long before Horus ever fell to Chaos.

Now we are talking matter of opinion.

No, I would rather call that a fact. An opinion would be regarding you like it or not. :) ATS and PS made the effort to show just how long the plans for the heresy had been in the making by the Chaos Gods before it even erupted.

No, we are talking fact. Opinion doesn't come into it. Magnus admits he made pacts with the powers of the warp, and thought he was too strong and too smart to be fooled by what he saw as feral warp creatures. Losing his eye was part of the pact.
Oh you beat me to it!

The opinion is that you find that wrong, where I do not. I find it heroic. He was trying to save his people.

Fyi, don't call something fact if your bias has ANYTHING to do with it.

To be fair, there really isn't much "fact" in these books. You could have read that tidbit from a SW book, which has a certain bias, where I read it from Talon of Horus, which is another bias... there really isn't a neutral book.
