The path to Terra is clear - we know that, so it's all about how it gets there. It's been referred to as the Last Temptation of Sanguinius, and that is fair. Why Guilliman isn't at Terra, the Scouring by Lion, all is revealed. Those lost in the Warp return.
The symbolism is strong with this one, and I enjoyed it. I can see that not being the case with a lot of people.
Sanguinius shows a side to Curze that I didn't expect to see. Lion actually had a moment which made me go huh, and respected him for it.
Strong ending for me. Sanguinius thoughts at the end are great and his plan for Horus.
Another somewhat problematic point is that this title contains multiple allusions to previous events that have taken place in previous titles. The point here is that unless you have read a number of the previous Horus Heresy volumes (there are more than four that are alluded to), you might have some problems in understanding what is going on, or why such and such a feature or planet is important. However, if you have read these titles (as was my case), you will be even more convinced that this book is essentially a filler where little new happens and with little originality in it.
Even the characterisation of the Primarchs was mostly unoriginal, although not always uninteresting. Lion is, as usual, rigid in his certainties and rash in his actions. Guilliman is increasingly subject to doubting his own judgment while Sanguinius the Angel – perhaps the most interesting of the three in this volume – ranges from fatalism tinged with despair, since he knows his own fate and knows how much his legion will have to suffer from it, to glimmers of hope as he seems to see a way to chaet his destiny.
To be fair, however, I did find some interesting features as well. One was the interactions between Sanguinius and his imprisoned brother Konrad Curze (the Primarch of the Night Lords) as both have inherited part of the Emperor’s gift (or curse) of foresight and have glimpses of the future, and of their demise in particular. Another is the origins of the Black Rage which will plague the Blood Angels once their Primarch is no more.
The features that I found interesting were however simply not enough to make this book into a good read. As a result, I could not help rating it two stars and cannot pretend that I liked it.
Night lords is the best book by far than the inquisition novels.
This book/ the fist half was pretty good but than the second half it bogged down and just got slow and lost total interest. Konrad is in it for 5 pages and he is the most memorable part of the book. It really is horrible. The review below mine sums it up very well also.
Trust me skip this one.
