Can you hear it? It is the songs of the spheres.
***** Writer Ben Counter takes off where “False Gods” left. The mindsets of the personalities in this installment mirror those from the previous story perfectly. From there, Counter takes viewers’ creative imaginations to an entire new degree. The battle scenes were so genuine to me that I can nearly feel the world shiver beneath my feet and also hear the bolter blasts. It gets no better than this! Ben Counter’s description of the bloodbath on Isstvan III and also the last stand of the patriots Children of Horus rises to the highest degree of military science fiction. He appears to have counted heavily on historic renditions of the battles of Stalingrad and Berlin to develop an abrasive realistic look that far goes beyond the initial 2 Horus books.
But his achievement doesn’t end with terrific fight scenes. He achieves two things that boost his novel to a level over “good” army sci-fi. Initially, he catches the friendship that develops on the field of battle between fellow soldiers as well as communicates those feelings with both pathos and heat. Numerous set scenes vibrate with such feeling that I found myself contrasting them to similar scenes in Homer’s Iliad and Tolkien’s The Return of the King. Second, he illuminates the surge of the Emperor cult and also highlights strongly (not tells) the destination of Disorder gods. This lighting is essential to the stress that needs to exist between Disorder as well as the Realm.
If the Horus Heresy is going to be a fantastic series and I believe it will certainly be, the visitor should understand the destination of Turmoil, otherwise it is simply one more story regarding super heroes dealing with villians or put another way– great verses evil. I think Ben Counter has found the middle way, fairly describing the tourist attraction of Mayhem as well as the piousness of the Emperor or Order. I was excitedly expecting this book after reading the initial 2 Horus Heresy books. Ben Counter did an excelent work. I liked this book. It is the very best of the Horus Heresy trilogy. The activity was nonstop. I could not place the book down. He did a good task of binding all of the loose ends of the trilogy. I am currently most definitely a huge follower of Ben Counter. Fantastic work. He did a wonderful job of bringing the space marines and also the warhammer 40k universy to life. Ben Counter – Galaxy in Flames Audio Book Online. I am expecting the following publication in the Horus Heresy line. I had not been expecting this to end up as well as the previous 2 books due to having just ended up the Heart Drinker Omnibus and not being a huge Ben Counter fan. Do not get me wrong, I believe he’s a fine author, but just something doesn’t rather click with me. Anyways, I was very pleased with this work as well as extremely recommend it to others. The Horus Heresy stories are very well-written, dramatic, and also socially appropriate in their questions of faith as well as secularism, placing them rather a methods over your common activity novel/tie-in story. This publication information the minute the Horus Heresy becomes public and also the events immediately leading up to it. It is clutching, jaw-dropping, memorable: I don’t even live in their time however the political as well as galaxy-wide effects of these occasions even reaches me!
My only complaint, and I think others have said it, is with the personality of Horus. The previous book went to terrific sizes to depict Horus’s emotional advancement, but here he becomes a particular character, a typical villain. It appears that the narrative was leading in also deterministic a way towards their being loyalist and also traitor area marine myriads without affectionately demonstrating why the traitor myriads would certainly comply with a villain as obvious of Horus outside of “commitment.”.
Besides that, it’s a great book as well as I have actually currently bought the next.
