What kind of creature has claws like that? This series is so cool! Sometimes, when I’m trying to decide what book to read I will read the first paragraph to see if it grabs me. Well, listen to this, these are the first two sentences: “In the void, the vessels gathered. Shifting gently in the silent darkness, the crenellated hulls and great ornate shapes appeared as a congregation of Gothic edifices, cathedral-wrought in their complexity, drifting as if torn from the surface of worlds and carved into warships.” Sold! I would have started reading even if I wasn’t already completely hooked (and coming in hot from Galaxy in Flames) on this fantastic series, The Horus Heresy, of which this is the fourth book. I like how each entry takes up the story, but from a different perspective, with alternate Legions and new characters. Yet it all feels of one piece, and what a grand tale it is so far. Epic.

A departure from the previous 3 books, this story took us on a different mission doing different things. I had a hard time really coming to like Garro all that much but i did find the whole thing to be a great set up for the Grey Knights.

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

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.

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.
