I won't add anything to the reviews of the book but be aware this paperback is OVERSIZE format - what is the point!??? it doesn't match my other 22 books and its the same for "betrayer"

Oversize hardbacks are one thing - but paperbacks are meant to be convenient.. i think the oversize format is just to justify the oversize price.. GW are becoming more and more expert in fleecing their loyal customers with selective releases, limited editions and a lack of kindle formats.

Its annoying. Come one GW - just let us fans have the stories we want as soon as they are ready.. My shelf collection is messed up unless i buy the book again.. Also the paperback editions should have the e-book editions bundled together. Again GW wants to make you pay twice for the same book in different formats. They are damaging the goodwill i have for GW after 25 years of being a fan!

One thing that myself and most of my wargaming comrades love about the Horus Heresy series is the expansion of personal primarch “fluff”. In Angel exterminates we get this with Perturabo which to my mind is long overdue. In the book we get to see a deeper side to this fellow and see what makes him tick. What Graham McNeil has done is given him a personality more than this grumpy silent type who hates rogal dorn and loves smashing up buildings. He makes Perturabo human and that is one of the stand out aspects of the book. His interaction with his “sons” and most notably the “trident” is also interesting and Graham McNeil has pulled off a master stroke by linking this book to his 40K series of novels including Storm of Iron. Ive read some folk complain about this but I believe it’s a real treat as Storm… is one of his best books and so getting back detail about the main protagonists is a treat. IT also reveals who the Warsmith in that book is…..
In this book we also get Fulgrim and his emperors children who are turning more vile as the heresy unfolds and again that is a triumph as we get to see the interaction and the levels to which the respective legions have fallen. The story also rounds Fulgrim off well but I wont spoil it here!

From a loyalist perspective we get the iron hands with their allies who show up who offer a good aspect to the story again some good surprises on the loyalist side. Especially when a raven guard gets stuck into a certain Emperors Children legionary!

The sneaky elder also play their hand and as an imperial player of the games just wants to make me kill more of them. You just cant trust those pointy eared space elves!!!!!!

Overall I loved this book it got back to what makes the Horus Heresy stories really good.

An epic continuation into the Horus Heresy series, exploring a previously untouched legion and primarch. Purturabo is portrayed as a much more complicated and in depth character than ever before and geniunely touches the reader. The other legions are excellent depicted especially the Emperors Children who have slid into unredemable evil. The only issue for me is the baffling decision to release this book in papaerback format but hardback size, for which i have knocked off a star. Otherwise well worth it!

Okay, due to the VERY ANNOYING new policy Black Library have instituted, I read this book months ago when it was released in the GW stores only, at which time we were unable to post reviews here. So I'm going on memory now overlaid with other books, including the next HH novel Betrayer.

Exterminatus is a good, enjoyable novel, it continues the story of Fulgrim, but more interestingly gives us a really good portrayal of Perturabo - who previously had a very thin and scant background and character. Here we see him as a noble architect at heart, forced into the role of a siege master and warlord. The Iron Warriors also get some good page time.

The story of the expedition into the Eye of Terror is handled well by and large, though perhaps begins to drag a little in places. Also, Fulgrim is so far fallen into Chaos now he often comes across as somewhat too much of a moustache twirling 'eeevil' bad guy.

I won't mark the novel itself down for the release policy, or the fact I was forced to buy it in 'collector's edition hardback' if I wanted to read it when it was released, but like the one star reviewer here I did find it very annoying. I'm not personally a fan of hardback novels, I find them unwieldy and uncomfortable to read, they break up the lines on my bookcase, and I prefer the feel and smell of a newly purchased paperback. Also these 'collector's editions' are double the price of course - which is clearly why BL have started this policy. Bloody annoying. But what are you going to do? Stop reading the HH books? I'm hooked unfortunately, so there you go...

Seriously, I don't know how much more of this I am able to take. Lately, whenever I finish a novel by McNeil, I'm not sure whether I want to shout or sob. Apparently, McNeil has completely run out of ideas on new characters. Either that or he seems to labour under the misapprehension that all his readers are dying to find out everything about any character he has ever conceived.

In This novel, we meet Kroeger and Forrix. We find out who "The Warsmith" really is and even where Honsou came from. Am I missing somebody? Oh, yes we even meet Grendel. You know, that boring more-or-less-pointless character from "Dead Sky, Black Sun". And yes, Warsmiths Toramino & Berrossus are present as well. And everybody knows you've been DYING to learn more about THEM!
In other words, at the end of the novel we might just as well pack up and move on to the plot of "Storm of Iron".

Seriously, it has been 10,000 years...and all the protagonists are still alive and more or less in the same positions they have been during the Heresy? Nothing else happend? Footsloggers died in their thousands, but the officers are still around and kicking ten millenia later?

Another gripe I'm having with this book is that, once again, there are too many characters. I was looking forward to seeing the Iron Warriors giving their first serious appearance, but nope...there are Iron Hands, Raven Guard, Salamander, Imperial Fists and Emperors Children present as well, hogging the spotlight. And half the time McNeil seems to be uncertain as of what to do with them. Most of the time, they just feel like fillers.
