    Pretty Disappointing

    This was the only Horus Heresy book that's left me disappointed. It had fairly strong beginning but got pretentious and dull during the middle and the end. It's recaps were unnecessary (I can't recall any of the other Horus Heresy authors recapping in such a ham handed way), it's battles weren't gripping, and even learning about the Sisters of Silence was boring.
    What really got me was the very off key ending. I can't remember a single Warhammer 40,000 book that left me as disappointed as this one.

    Overall, it's a book that you COULD skip and not miss too much

    A reviewer

    Compared to the first three books in the series, Flight of the Eisenstein just moved too slow. I wish that the story would have moved forward a bit quicker and not detailed a battle that ws already covered in a previous book from a different point of view.

    Fantasic

    This was a fantastic book and filled in some gaps the third left behind. I don't know what the other was saying the vivid detail in this book was fantastic. Great how he described the emotions heart break and betrayal of the space marine's they were depicted as brothers sadden by the betrayal. Highly reccomended.

    Great Addition to the Heresy Series

    I just got this book from a Barnes and Noble store locally about a week ago and I couldn't put it down. It has most of the dramatic elements that the first three books had from the wonder and magnificence at the height of the Great Crusade to the despair and pain of the Heresy. Garro was portrayed perfectly in comparison to the circumstances he was in (utterly confused, full of despair, ect.) Plus you get a full on view of the Master of the Imperial Fists the Primarch and Son of the Emperor Rogal Dorn that was completely on par with Dan, Graham and Ben's level of skill. How do these guys make you actually 'see' the majesty of these amazing characters called Primarchs? So, basically in two words: Absolutely amazing.
