4.0 out of 5 stars A great book - but not a classic, 18 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Fallen Angels (The Horus Heresy) (Paperback)
Fallen Angels picks up almost immediately where Descent of Angels ended and really, both books should have been one. It takes place between the events of Istvaan III and Istvaan V with the Primarch Lion El'Jonson taking a small strike team to a planet to prevent experimental weapons falling into Horus' hands. At the same time, it picks up events on Caliban after the return of Luthar and this is how the book continues throughout, with two stories running in parallel to each other. Many of the first book's characters return and there's lots of plot twists and turns keeping you in suspence until then end. But that's where the problem arrises again. Whilst there's an excellent twist at the end for the Lion, the final ending on Caliban is one of confusion and like the first book, it seems to end too soon with no coverage of the catastrophic events leading to Caliban's destruction, instead ending at some undefined point before hand. This is frustraiting because it makes the ending feels rushed, as if the author either ran out of ideas or ran out of time and feels like a missed opportunity to turn Fallen Angels in to potentially the best book in the series so far.
