As the name suggests, this fifth book in the Horus Heresy series details the fall from grace of the Primarch Fulgrim and his Legion, the Emperor's Children. The book is relatively well written and easy to read managing to be very compulsive, and I probably got through it faster than some of the previous Horus Heresy novels despite its length (more than five-hundred pages). The battle scenes were easy to follow and although some may have lacked a little energy they were all greatly entertaining, especially the climactic Drop Site Massacre on Isstvan V, which was suitably epic in scale (although it probably could have done with more than a couple of chapters if I am honest), and the duel between Fulgrim and Ferrus Manus, which was a tragic yet exciting showdown.
On the downside, the narrative can be a little choppy in places, jumping forward in time repeatedly when a little more time should probably have been spent on some things. The characterisation of some of the characters could also have been handled a little better, especially with Julius Kawsoron whose fall I didn't really feel was handled very well.
While not the best book in the Horus Heresy series, Fulgrim was a very entertaining read and is well worth a solid four stars.
But I persevered and I'm so glad I did! Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I found there to be less characters in this book, so it was easier to keep track of who was who. The story overall was engaging and really enjoyable, seeing a legion and hero sub-come to the influences of Chaos. I particular enjoyed the remembrancers parts in the story (this time round) as they didn't overwhelm the book like in previous outings, and how their parts complemented/mirrored that of the legion. Although the book is a good dealer longer than normal, I found it told the story to the point and that it didn't go needlessly wondering off.
In short if you liked False Gods (and Graham McNeil), I think your'll really enjoy this book as it's in the same vein and style. In relation to the series this is my 2nd favourite book so far. I hope other books in the series are written/told like this . . .
That scene where Marius Vairosean chops a Iron Hands space marine's head off, than proceeds to kiss his dead lips... That scene seriously creeped me out. Goddamn Slaneeshi perverts.
