Nemesis (The Horus Heresy),
This review is from: Nemesis (The Horus Heresy) (Paperback)
After reading the first three books from the Horus Heresy series I just wanted more. However not every of the books from the series is as good as the first trilogy. Nemesis is one of the books that doesn't feature Astartes as main characters and although I was slightly dissapointed with that I found this book a great read. It has really good character profiles for most main characters. Plot is really interesting and keeps you gluesd to the book, I read it in two days. Unfortunately I didn't like the part of an elite killer, chosen as champion of her order being so easily distracted from mission and taking a path of her own without any good explanation. The other thing is that although the book, although it is nicely written, has good plot and is basically a good read, has a premise that normal humans (albeit elite assassins) could kill either Horus or Emperor, especially him.
