False Gods

The human Imperium stands at its height of glory thousands of worlds have been brou. I was there the day that Horus fell The opening trilogy of the Horus Heresy is still one of the best parts of the saga and re reading it after ten years is still a blast My knowledge of Warhammer 40000 lore grown a lot in this time and knowing now what is going to happen to characters in their future adds a lot of pleasure and entertainment to the readingKharn Magnus Fabius Angron Lucius and so on I m so happy this is not just a list of names for meview spoilerAnd if you read Graham McNeill s Storm of Iron you know that the mighty Dies Irae is going to became a Chaos Titan and breach open the gates of the Emperor s palace in the Siege of TerraThe battle against the plague zombies and NurglethNurgle plaguebearers was great and together with the gruesome ritual used by Erebus to appeal the four Chaos Gods introduced a lot of horror to the story and other trademark elements so much beloved by W40k fansJust the same for the Pink Horror of Tzeentch summoned on the Vengeful Spirit by Sindermann s misreadingAnd the likeness of Horus standing in front of the traitorous Temba with the dead Verulam Moy at their feet was just a touch of genius a dark reflection or an omen of things to come hide spoiler

review False Gods

Ght to heel by the conuering armies of mankind At the peak of his powers Warmaster. Well this was a major step down from the first book in the Horus Heresy series In Horus Rising Dan Abnett did his best to set up the psychology of the main characters in the saga making me think that Horus monumental decision to take down the Emperor would be based on some kind of internal conflict and drama and shades of grey issues of morality It also made me very curious to see how will he get to that point Unfortunately all my high hopes were uickly dispersed when Graham McNeill took over and delivered a book that is straight up pulp space action without any pretenses at serious work of writing with extremely simplified plot and characters that are thinner than their own cardboard cutoutsNow this is not very surprising when we talk about Warhammer 40k novels which are meant to be super light weight futuristic military fiestas focused on action machismo and hooking up readers to buy other WH40k products But since this IS arguably the most important series in the entire WH40k universe and since the first book obviously showed that it IS possible to take an extra step and make a serious deeper engaging novel I really cannot see why there was no effort to pick a better writer and to tell a complex story about these crucial eventsAnyway in this book we uickly learn that there is bit of Chaos infestation among some of the senior members of the Astartes as one of those guys Erebus comes up with a kindergarten level of a master plan on how to corrupt Horus and turn him to the dark side His brilliant idea is to basically tell Horus that some random local governor on some random irrelevant planet has rebelled and called the Warmaster a chicken Channeling his inner Marty McFly Horus previously presented as thoughtful considerate and patient when it comes to assaulting people immediately turns on his rage mode and decides to take an entire spearhead of his army with Titans and legions of Space Marines and all sorts of accompanying hardware and to lead them himself head on into a ground assault In the ensuing combat on a Chaos infested moon view spoiler Horus is wounded by a Morgul blade I mean a magical anathame weapon which poisons him and leaves him on his death bed In this dire situation the only person who has any suggestion on how to help the Warmaster is Erebus who easily convinces all of Horus friends and officers to take their dying leader into some kind of pagan temple and lock him in there for a ritual of purification Of course when Horus comes out of there he will be alive cured but changed Chaos corruption has taken another victim hide spoiler
