The action and relentless violence starts in merely rip-roaring fashion and then steadily escalates - SFX --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By A Customer on 4 Aug. 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nightbringer is a novel that will be hard for those unfamiliar to the Warhammer 40,000 universe to understand. Despite being set in the future its is more fantasy than science fiction. Set in a dark future were Humanity is besieged on all sides by its foes may of who are more fitting to surivive than the often corrupt and bloodthirsty humans.
The story is told mainly from the perspective of Uriel Ventris a newly promoted Captain of the Ultramarines an Adeptus Astartes Chapter. The space marines who defend the corrupt Imperium from its foes. Their are no good guys in this universe only different degrees of evil.
The plot although sometimes predictable fits in well with the 40K mythos. The action comes in thick and fast as you would expect when the main character is a genetically enhanced killing machine leading a force of other genetically enhanced killing machines. Oh and of course people are disected alive... a special treat for the slightly more "deranged" fans.
40k fans will not be disapointed with this novel which also for probably the first time ever in a black libary novel features the Dark Eldar with a major role. And Ultramarine players should be especially pleased now that its not only the Space Wolves Marines getting novels.
Now i just need the sequel Warriors of Ultramar...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This Warhammer 40,000 novel is all about a newly promoted space marine captain, named Uriel Ventris, and his mission to protect an ambassador who is going to try to restore calm on a very much troubled planet.
As a fan of the Warhammer 40,000 game, i could easily understand much of the book's content, but i feel anyone who is not familiar to the back story of the game will feel a little lost at some aspects of the plot. I enjoyed this book very much, and i am certainly going to buy the sequel when it comes out.
The novel is incredibly voilent and gory in places, and this may put people off, but anyone who can stand it will find a this a very fun and enjoyable book, and i would certainly recomend this novel to science fiction fans and anyone who is intrested in the Warhammer 40,000 background.

I would recommend this book to people who like Science Fiction,action and adventure novels.
Nightbringer is the first story in the Ultramarines Omnibus. I am 11 years old and a very confident reader and always read books out of my recommended age range. This book would not be suitable for younger or nervous readers. It does also contain mild bad language and very graphic battle scenes. I would rate this book as suitable for teenagers, 13 yrs +.

The story is set in the 41st Millennium, it is about 4 company Ultramarines sent to a planet called Pavonis. Their mission is to rid the planet of elder Pirates, but Uriel has been given the task of guarding a very important governor.

In other reviews (Ultramarines Omnibus) people have said that they didn't really like the stories in Ultramarines Omnibus (Nightbringer/Warriors of Ultramar/Dead Sky Black Sun) but I didn't really understand why.
I really enjoyed it and found it to be a good, exciting Science Fiction read. Maybe other reviewers worry about minor details a bit too much and should just concentrate on enjoying the story. It's not supposed to be 'realistic'or 'true to life' or even 'believable' it's SCIENCE FICTION! :-)
I hope you enjoy it if you decide to read it.

This is the first book in the Ultramarines series of novels by Graham McNeill and it brilliantly sets the tone for the future books. Nightbringer sees Captain Uriel Ventris on his first mission in command of the Ultramarines Fourth Company, trying to live up to the expectations of his previous commander. The book ranges from the mountains of Macragge to alien tombs beneath the troubled world of Pavonis and forces Captain Ventris to confront traitorous humans, degenerate aliens and creatures from the dawn of time. Graham McNeill has done very well with this book getting the balance between action and dialog right and explaining the background from the wider Warhammer 40,000 universe whenever such things are needed, making this book accessible to newcomers to the hobby as well as veterans. This book will also be of particular interest to those who collect Necrons as it involves the awakening of one of the C’tan Star Gods.
