Fulgrim and his Emperors Children, Astartes Legion famous for their constant quest for perfection, are main characters in this chapter of Horus Heresy series.Small incident during the war with strange alien Laer civilization will bring Fulgrim in contact with mysterious artifact ¿ mighty sword that will use Fulgrims own insecurities and ever-going quest for glory for his own needs. Very soon entire Legion will succumb to this irresistible temptation and Emperors Children will become a twisted group of demented warriors in service of Horus [and indirectly Chaos]. As a result old friends will become enemies and great tragedies will occur.Slightly disturbing story (especially when it comes to indulgences and perversions made under the influence of Chaos) but nevertheless interesting one ¿ more details are revealed regarding Istvaan massacres and Horus¿s plans.Hopefully next books in series will move on with the story and depict events during the assault on Terra itself.Recommended.

I am compelled to admit that I scanned over a good piece of Fulgrim, chiefly part three after the defeat and annihilation of the Diasporex. The rest I read fully. In point of fact, I was a bit bored with Fulgrim¿s fall. Maybe it was due to the obviousness of the inherent evil contained in the blade he captured from the Laer? Possibly? However, I don¿t think the whole Daemon usurping control theme was pulled off to great effect. The battle scenes were scrumptious and full of pithy witticisms and full-blown action. With it all culminating in the massacre at Istvaan V. Yes it was cool and brutal, but it didn¿t make up for the drawn out fall of Fulgrim. After the incredible Eisentstein novel, this one sadly seemed to fall short.

The only true paradises are those that are lost to us... I’m slowly developing the opinion that The Horus Heresy may be my current favorite science fiction universe, and this one, book 5 does nothing to discourage that idea. This one centers around the Emperor’s Children and it’s Primarch, hence the name. I really like how each Legion feels distinctly different. Not just different colored armor, but a real reflection of each Primarch, sometimes embracing a very different agenda and questionable tactics. It’s also cool that each Legion seems aware of the others only by reputation and gossip. We get to see how those preconceptions hold up to the real thing. It’s just one example of a tiny detail that shows how well thought out this universe is. Not to mention how impressive it is that each of these is written by a different author, but it still fells like it has the same voice. Huge in scope and concept, yet intimate and personal in conflict. Wonderful, I will read all of these again. And again.

WOW. This book took me by storm. Fulgrim is an evil genius but ultimately its the supporting characters that do this for me. The remembrancers and some of the 3rd legion captains really tie this story together to make it a beautiful train wreck.

The book was pretty good. I was very involved in the storyline, enough so that i was mad that evil was winning and was in a bad mood for the time i was reading the book.

Overall the Horus Heresy has been a good series but I didnt like the way that this book went. Personally, I think it is because Im not the biggest fan of the Emperor's Children as much as the other Legion's. I am finding that the rest of the series is awesome!

Having started the Horus Heresy series I have been amazed on the "flow" from one author to another. This is a perfect example of storytellers weaving an intricate tapestry as a group. Rarely seen and even more rarely executed with zeal and superior material. Highly recommend this book and the entire series. Lee
