Low star reviews are just unfair....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Age of Darkness (The Horus Heresy) (Paperback)
I guess this book isn't for the casual 40k reader of for those just starting out reading 40k, but if you're a real fan of the Heresy then this is a very good book and don't let some of the low star reviews put you off. Personally I thought it was really interesting to get an insight into those years of standoff and to consider some of the issues that were going on in that period. I very much hope they keep expanding on this era before the big final showdown. Unfortunately some just want to race to the end.
