Finished reading it and here's what I have to say without spoilers:
If you are new to 40k books, you should get this. It gives you a good angle on the space-marines and their style of combat, as well as a basic (yet awesome) understanding of the all-confusing subject of the warp.
I think it's a great addition to the HH novels, simply because it goes into how deep of an impact it was for individual space marines on the effects of the heresy, and how not all marines of certain legions become Insta-Traitor
Very very action packed. Space warfare as well as ship boarding actions. Warp space battles are...very well written. I thought over all it was pretty well developed character wise, but there was a bit of a blue ball at the end (as was written in previous review)
quote of the day?
"Word Bearer, you talk to much..."
QUESTIONS for fluff-policeWhen did the Thousand Sons go traitor in relation to this book?
Do the space wolves know that the emperor is a psyker, and that other Marine legions use librarians?
Were the word bearers the first to go traitor?
