False Gods had the nuanced plot that McNiell has shown to be his forté.
However, you get the impression that, as pointed out in a previous comment, that Ben Counter was brought in too early. Yes, he handles action with the panache typical of Black Library releases, but in terms of plot and character development, he seems to be far outclassed by Abnet and McNeill. Yes, it probably didn't help that he had to work with already established characters, and yes, I dont think that this means that he is a better or worse author, but the difference in style between the first two books and the third is pretty jarring.
And what's with the guy making the seemingly unilateral decision to change 'Istvaan' to 'Isstvan' ?
Having read the first two books, `Galaxy in Flames' is well written and continues the corruption of Primarch Horus, mostly through the eyes of Garviel Loken, 10th Captain of the Sons of Horus. As his suspicions grow, so does the danger. With devastating consequences, Horus's corruption to the Warp Gods is apparent.
The bigger picture of the Imperium of Man, the Primarchs and their respective legions become clearer as they begin to divide and some become possessed by the Entities of The Warp. Plenty of fast action and horror make this a great sci-fi story and, with the first two books, one epic event.
If you are unfamiliar with the 40K universe, then I highly recommend the wikipedia web site or the Gamesworkshop site for some indepth background, you will be `illuminated'!
Looking forward to `Fulgrim', `Descent of Angels' and finally, `Legion'
