Descent of Angels (Horus Heresy Series) 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 28 reviews.

This book has nothing to do with the Horus Heresy. It is the tale of a boy growing to manhood on a feudal world inhabited by a charismatic man destined to become a Primarch one day. Well towards the end of the book, we learn that our boy has become an Astartes, but it doesn't really get any better from there. In the end I found that I had skimmed most of the book. For me, it wasn't very well-written. For the life of me I don't know why it is part of the Horus Heresy series.

This book will have one and only one saving grace. If there is to be a follow up to this book then it was worth reading. If not then I'm going to use it to prop up an uneven table, and suggest fans of the heresy series to look elsewhere for reading material. The book was long, drawn out and had absolutely nothing to do the the heresy. If you want dark angels history and background then by all means read it. If not then don't waste your time.

Like the rest of the horus heresy books this one is just as good although it lacks what youve come to expect from the series. Astartes vs Astartes battles. It is mostly a book that sets the base for a book that should be released after Horus is killed and the Dark Angels Primarch returns to Caliban.

As mentioned above it didn't really tie in with series well. They will definitely need a second book to tell the tale of the fall of Luthor to Chaos and the destruction of Caliban. Sort of a post hersey fall of book otherwise much of the book will not make cense to the casual SCI-FI reader

While much of this book is well written and entertaining, It does not have much to do with the series storyline. The end is abrupt and felt rushed. The story simply ends without explaining why events happened as they did. In my opinion it felt like there should be a second book to finish the storyline.

This book is NOT apart of The Horus Heresy, it does not mention Horus, not once in the all of its pages. I don't understand how it could be marketed as the 6th book. If you seek the next book, look elsewhere because you will not find your answers here.
