1.0 out of 5 stars like very bad fanfic, 12 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Death of Antagonis (Space Marine Battles) (Paperback)
I had hopes for this, I really really wanted it to be good.
It started with promise, a pseudo zombie plague, Black dragon space marines and what I assumed would be an epic battle for the world of Antagonis (given that thats the title of the book. After a fairly decent opening few chapters and a pretty decent twist behind the zombie everything went down hill.
The meat of the story is really about the interal strife within the black dragons and how the choose to embrace or reject their mutations that turn them into a space marine version of wolverine from the x-men whilst trying to get to the bottom of the true motive behind the death of Antagonis (not really a spoiler it happens pretty soon into the story).
From that point it became cookie cutter fan fic fodder.
Characters are pretty much a single trait rather than any real depth. Fanatic to the point of crazy inquisitor, wolverine clone, evil chaos marines that lack any real motive or developement you can find them all her. The only charcter that stuck out was Setheno,a sister of battle attached to the Black dragons to see that the imperial will is carried out. Shes somewhat fanatic yet resonable, willing to do whatever needs to be done to ensure the survival of the imperium and kicks a lot of ass doing so.
But its all a bit stupid, we have a bit of a fetch quest to unlock the key to a super weapon....a stupid super weapon, we have an amount of deaths that would deplete a chapter let around the company strength for sent to Antagonis and a Mary sue wolverine clone who manages to cut down anything in his path with minimum fuss. The whole thing is laughable and poor editing fails to catch several moments in which David Annadale seems to show a complete lack of knowledge in the background of the universe hes chosen to write in.
Really avoid like the plague
