4.0 out of 5 stars not a horus must read but a worthy book none the less., 15 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Legion (The Horus Heresy) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is not essential to the horus heresy books. This is a book about the alpha legion through the eyes of those they use and in rare cases come into contact with. This book is mostly seen through the eyes of imperial guards men and women but they are not ordinary guard. these soldiers are made and are essentially the predecessors of the primarchs and marines or atleast an off shoot. Their technology was a test by the emperor to see if it was feasible and as you are here you know the rest. Being based on out dated technology they are the last of their kind and they know it too. The story revolves around a planet that through unknown almost magical means are able to keep the forces of man from completing their planetary compliance. This is a serious cause for concern and is now becoming embarrassing. The other part of the story centers around an agent who works for a shadowy group known as the cabal. The agent sent knew and met the emperor and has since died many times so they are indeed alien. he has been sent to locate the alpha legion and to make contact as he has news that will shatter the very foundation of human kind. Surfice to say a shadowy organisation getting intouch with another shadowy organisation proves extremely difficult. This is a good read but doesnt really bring to the heresy tales much of anything untill maybe the last 50 or so pages.
