The Emperor Protects
Ok, even though I've put spoilers in the title, I'll wrap this in tags anyway.
On that last point, I totally agree with makes no sense what's so ever. Also that "you're one of his" is probably the most important thing in the story tbh as it implies stuff has gone on we've not yet read and I can't wait to read.Ok, even though I've put spoilers in the title, I'll wrap this in tags anyway.
Hydra Dominatus.Ok I'll give the general outline as far as I can tell and if you want me to elaborate lets me know.
np Apologies for the bad grammar though I wrote it really quick before I had to go out.By the way, for anyone that needs reminding of the plot I found this post in another thread here. It's a really good summary of the entire story
This guy also talks about the dead body thing.
edit: I see Words of Truth is already here. Great summary, thanks!
I thought the Iron Hands corpse was the real Septus Thoic. When him and Frater were blown out into space, he didn't return to the ship but was instead picked up by Meduson's (Alpharius ship) and that's where the bodies, skin, armour were switched...?So no one else gets the Iron Hands corpse. Reassuring.....
I didn't mind the story. But the twist was still very obvious from the outset, them killing loyalists in the end would have been less obvious if McNeill hadn't already done it on Fulgrim.
Read this last night. My answer to this might be that the body was an IH rescued by the AL on Istvaan, or in the aftermath. That doesn't explain why his original prosthetic was replaced by an apparent kitbash, unless it was damaged beyond repair. Remember, this ship was bound for what turned out to be a loyalist AL installation, on that Alpharius was trying to locate. Odd that even the Primarch didn't know it's location.The only working explanation I have, is that McNeill went with a very long winded, pointless and stupid way to tell us that some Iron Hands turned traitor and joined the Alpha Legion.
Let me sing to you the song of my people.On the whole, this was merely an ok story. I got the feeling that we've missed a follow up to Legion. Maybe there is one in the works. They need it, rather than trying to tell their story through half assed cameos in bigger novels.
True. I don't think we needed a DA follow up as much as an AL one though. The inner happenings of the DA were the only ones we had any real knowledge of going into this series, and the few shorts we've had have done enough to fill the gaps, especially when you consider how bad those two novels were.I'm agreeing with you... while also pointing out that this is a phenomenon that can come in other shapes and sizes, as well.
