As the Horus Heresy divides the Imperium, Corax and his few remaining Raven Guard escape the massacre at Isstvan V. Tending to their wounds, the bloodied Space Marines endeavour to replenish their numbers and return to the fray, taking the fight to the traitor Warmaster. Distraught at the crippling blow dealt to his Legion, Corax returns to Terra to seek the aid of his father – the Emperor of Mankind. Granted access to ancient secrets, Corax begins to rebuild the Raven Guard, planning his revenge against his treacherous brother primarchs. But not all his remaining warriors are who they appear to be… the mysterious Alpha Legion have infiltrated the survivors and plan to destroy the Raven Guard before they can rebuild and threaten Horus’s plans.
This is a very good addition to the HH series so far, without giving anything away it is Corax heavy, learning about the Primarch and the rebuilding of the XIX Legion, lots of twists and turns , Gav Thorpe doe NOT disappoint !
Best book since Horus rising
Pretty awful sadly
There are some novels in the Heresy series which are brilliantly written, intense, epic and delve into this odd gothic hopeless world with great artistry - then there are some that are basically terrible world war 2 b movie cheese dialogue stories written for 10 year olds - sadly this turns out to be the latter - after Dan Abnett and Graham McNeill go to the trouble of inventing real emotion and complex human characters, you get awful rubbish like this which is concerned only with nerd details about what weaponry is used and has characters that display three emotions - happy, sad or confused. Literally nothing else. Even the Emperor written so brilliantly by McNeill is basically a happy then sad Santa Claus figure here which is painful to read. I won't skip any of the Heresy books out of completeness but if I read them again I will happily skip this dull and badly written geek manual that would have embarrassed me to read at age 10.
