This review is from: Battle for the Abyss (The Horus Heresy) (Paperback)
While the plot depends on a fair knowledge of the preceding & concurrent events of the Great Crusade & impending Heresy this just about works as a standalone story. It doesn't expand significantly on the heresy but gives some insight into the hitherto seemingly sidelined ultramarines & the word bearers with some intriguing inter-legion dynamics worked through adding extra spice for those who know a bit more about how the Warhammer 40k universe turns out. In summary, entertaining but by no means the best in the series & so far seems to add little to the central progression of the Heresy plot other to tacitly provide an explanation for the absence of 2 legions at Isstvan.
