I came to this book with some little trepidation, as the first omnibus about this chapter of humanity's greatest warriors left something to be desired. However, this was much better and restored my faith in the writer, James Swallow. In short, we pick up where we left off, with Rafen and the aftermath of the near civil war that plagued the Blood Angels when Rafen's brother Arkio was manipulated into thinking he was the heir to Sanguinius. Red Fury details the BA's attempt to rebuild their chapter by calling all the successor chapters to Baal to give a tither of initiates, and "wacky high jinks ensue" (in the words of Mr Swallow). In Black Tide, the second novel, The BA's go on the hunt for Fabius Bile, who stole the chapter's stock of gene seed, and is now being hunted. All in all, better characterisation than the first omnibus, and was much better written. Worth a read.

Whilst I've read the two full novels contained with before (Red Fury and Black Rage) I absolutely loved the additional material that was included within however this is the third time that Heart of Rage has been released (once in a book and once as an audio book) which may leave readers feeling a little cheated.

If you're a fan of the Warhammer 40k world it is a great value for money item and a wonderful way for the reader to contain the titles within their own collection. Add to this a Blood Angel Appendix and a couple of other stories and it was a book that entertained as well as kept the chapter alive. Cracking stuff and could be an ideal gift for the Black Library fan in your life.

Having gotten bored of the pseudo-pagan feminist agenda that are the current generation of fantasy books (replete with pseudo-tolkienesk unpronouncable names) I decided to give sci-fi a go and turned to my beloved 40k setting.
As sci-fi goes this is good, its not specifically profound in the way 'classic' sci-fi is but it is a cracking good read! Easily readable with well fleshed out characters it follows on from the first omnibus.
Swallow portrays the 'dark side' of the blood angels as well as their aspirations to angel-hood. Overall the book is well written although one can notice the authors repeted use of some uncommon words throughout different novels.
If you haven't read the first omnibus I'd read that first, I think it is slightly better than the second but only just. Also a must for any Blood Angels fans of the tabletop game!
