Horus and the Iron Warriors [May. 15th, 2006|09:04 pm]
Let The Galaxy BURN!


[music |Alice In Chains-Rooster]

I recently finished book 1 of the Horus Heresy by Dan Abnett.  INCREDIBLE!  It's cool when I got to know some people's first names before they became the way they were (ie. Lucious the eternal, Abbadon the despoiler, etc.).  I am looking forward to books 2 & 3 of the series.  

I have heard that there are other books about the Iron Warriors besides Storm Of Iron.  Is there any truth to that and what are the names of the books?

Thanks for your input.

Storm Of Iron leads into Dead Sky, Black Sun, which begins the faceoff between Uriel Ventris and the Iron Warriors.

whoa... McNeil ties Storm of Iron to Ventris?!

damn. I still need to track down a copy of Warriors of Ultrimar. Nightbringer was fantastic though.

I got a bit bored with them as they went along. After you've read all the 40K books, all the space marine stuff starts to blend together.

No telling if he'll ever tie up Dead Sky, Black Sun, but at least it was different.

Honestly, I found Dead Sky, Black Sun to be 'eh', surprisingly, considering how much I enjoyed the Ultramarines novels and Storm of Iron.

Still, it's not -that- bad :)

Yeah, Horus Rising was great. Good stuff, as usual, by Dan Abnett.

I'm looking forward to reading more of the series... in his blog Abnett points out that there are more than 3 books in the series and he'll be writing another one.
