A great and unmissable novel,
This review is from: Horus Rising (The Horus Heresy) (Mass Market Paperback)
I read this book recently and once I started reading it I was instantly enraptured and devoured this and the two sequels in the space of about a week!
I really enjoyed this opening book of the Horus Heresy series. Dan Abnett is a great writer IMO and I loved the gritty and dark style of this novel.
I think Abnett does a great job of bringing what are essentially and army of faceless clones to life with many interesting characters. The action is fast paced and gripping and for those into the 40K universe this is a great window into the history of the Space Marines.
Highly recommended. I would advise buying the first three books together as once you start reading the first novel it is very hard to put down and you'll be hungry for more when you finish it!
