    I couldn t even get halfway through this one A real shame, because Abnett started things off so well McNeil takes every bad expectation you have about a book like this and delivers in spades Did he read the first book Did he have a solid outline Was an editor involved at any point Characters here are markedly shallow, losing entire dimensions if not undoing entire personality changes between the previous book and this one The one common element is that everybody has regressed to the level of a 13 year old brat, sniping inexplicably at each other without rhyme nor reason Personal conflict is just shoe horned into relationships, entirely unexplained and with no good reason beyond an entirely artificial method from the author of forcing character drama into the plot Whole relationship dynamics change, friends are suddenly enemies and you wonder if you d missed something Don t worry you haven t It doesn t make any sense.All vestiges of subtlety have been beaten and locked in an oubliette Conversations are overly obvious, accusations fly left and right without regard for scene or setting or, as previously mentioned, established character or history It s all amateur dramatics, ham fisted mockeries of dialogue, reducing everything to a grimdark sci fi version of an MTV reality show In a shallow attempt at forcing tension, characters are unaccountably obnoxious and overly obvious Horus himself has become a whiny emo kid with the diplomatic apptitude of a horny elephant Erebus is a bollocks stand in for Grima Wormtongue None of this has context.McNeil has the writing skill of a block of cold spam left too long at back of a disused fridge.

    This is the second book in the Horus Heresy series, and I m still eager to continue the series I ve stated before that I m a big fan of the 40K universe, and this series reveals one of the core foundations for that setting As with the first book we learn about the Warmaster, and follow his descent into heresy.The story delves a bit deeper into Horus personality, and in particular the seeds for his fall The mechanisms weren t unexpected, but it did have some surprises It certainly sets the scene for events to come It s also well reflected in the surrounding characters, in particular the members of the Mournival introduced in the first book The new characters from other chapters play a significant part and also help identify the nature of the different Astartes chapters well legions at that point.The bleak nature of the universe is one of its best features, it s all very much shades of grey, even when there s a supposed purity of purpose This is reflected in the writing which has a formal, and almost sombre feel Having different authors in a series can be a mixed bag, but the style is consistent with the previous book The style of writing suits the setting, but there are nuances here as well For superhuman characters, there s some appreciated subtlety in the writing and characterisation.The books downside is shared by many others in the world As they re aimed at players of the game there s a lot of assumed knowledge, although for fans it does add a lot of richness to the background Overall it s a solid action story, with some thoughtful moments Definitely a good read for fans.

    This book tells the story of how the space marines bioengineered warriors that are a part of a humans crusade to conquer the galaxy meet and are corrupted by supernatural evil I enjoyed the first two thirds of this book The story follows a linear path There are several groups of characters writters remebrancers, military personel, and space marines that somehow reflect the complex structure of the imperium during that time Each scene is well described, both characters and environment constructed places, alien landscapes, magical realms The actions are explained, the reasoning of the characters decisions makes sense There is a strong horror part in this book and is depicted very well the setting is very appropriate for a horror story, the monsters are scary, the fight against them has a lot of tension Excellent part.Then the story jumbs 10 months into the future, in the middle of a war and the main characters have made up their minds about very important matters without much explanation that was given in the previous part Neither the main character s confessions, when he was seriously injured, are shown nor his reasoning for the choices he madeThe first two thirds is a five star, the last part is not bad, but overall the story felt strongly incomplete to me I ve read 7 books in the HH series and my favorite are the Prospero Burns and Nemesis because the main characters story ordinary human in these two is complete I think its 3.5 stars as a stand alone but i give 4 because its part of a series So i guess that some parts, that i think they should have been in this book, are explained in other volumes of the HH series.

    THIS is the book to describe one of THE moments in Warhammer Horus corruption But it is worth only a short story inside the book I understand if some readers should not be bored with too many details. but like this, it looks like Horus was already corrupted, can easily be deceived. definitely NOT a demi god but an arrogant, dumb, greedy all to human character instead Was veeery disappointed The only thing that kept me buying the next book is that I want to know how Loken will decide and who survives the breaking of the legion.

    Mit False Gods legt Graham McNeill den 2 Teil der Horus Heresy nach.Nachdem es im 1 TeilHorus Rising Anniversary Edition Horus Heresy haupts chlich um Captain Gavriel Loken und seine Erlebnisse ging, erweitert der Autor nun das Spektrum um Horus selbst, Offiziere der Legio Mortis und einige Remembrancers.Die 63 Expeditionsflotte eilt nach Davin um eine Rebellion in einem schon befriedeten System niederzuschlagen Anf hrer der Rebellion scheint ein enger Freund von Horus zu sein Eugen Tembra, der sich auf den Mond um Davin verschanzt hat Aufgebracht durch dessen Verrat befiehlt Horus den Angriff Diesen f hrt er selber an.Die Sons of Horus, einige Titanen, normales Milit r und Space Marines der Word Bearers landen auf dem Mond und werden in ein d steres Szenario hineningezogen.Graham McNeill hat nat rlich einen anderen Stil als Dan Abnett, aber mir pers nlich hat der Roman besser gefallen als Horus Rising McNeill bringt die Stimmung und die Atmosphere gut her ber.Fazit Der Roman ist ein Muss, wenn man den ersten Band gelesen hat.Der Nachfolgeband istGalaxy in Flames The Heresy Revealed Warhammer Warhammer 40,000 Novels Horus Heresy

    Was l sst sich ber dieses Buch noch sagen Obwohl sich der Autor ge ndert hat der erste Band stamt aus der Feder von Dan Abnett sind die Charaktere in der Grundlinie immernoch dieselben Anders als Mr Abnett schafft es Mr McNeill jedoch, eine weitaus bedrohlichere Stimmung zu schaffen, welche von Sub Plots nur so berquillt, was das Lesevergn gen nur noch steigert.Auch in diesem Buch trifft der WH 40K Veteran wieder auf bekannte Schurken, unter anderem Kh rn den Schl chter und den Primogenitor, Fabius Gallus, was jedem Fan des Spiels die Freudentr nen in die Augen treiben durfte.Als pers nliche Anmerkung m chte ich hinzuf gen, dass ich auch dieses Buch wieder innerhalb k rzester Zeit verschlungen habe Mehr als nur eine Empfehlung wert

    Nach dem wirklich sehr guten ersten Teil der Horus Heresy war ich nat rlich freudig gespannt auf den zweiten Teil Und ich kann sagen, dass ich nicht entt uscht wurde Es gab einige Momente, die einen wirklich mitgenommen haben und, wenn ich mich mein Ged chtnis nicht tr bt, in ihrer Dramatik so auch nicht im ersten Teil zufinden waren Nichtsdestotrotz gab es einen Punkt, der mich nicht berzeugen konnte die Versuchung des Horus Ohne zu viel zu verraten, aber mich konnte diese Stelle nicht berzeugen und hinterlies einen gewissen Beigeschmack, der sich bis zum Ende des Romans durchzog Alles in einem handelt es sich bei False Gods trotzdem um einen wirklich kurzweiligen Roman, der seine 5 Sterne verdient hat.

    Se avete un po di passione per il genere e per la lettura dovete leggerlo in inglese quindi regolatevi di conseguenza


    Devo ammettere che mi piace Tutte le avventure dell eresia di Horus sono interessanti Non essendo una conversione del gioco da tavolo ma, una storia indipendente, la trovo molto curata In inglese ma di facile traduzione Consigliato per chi vuole passare qualche ora immerso in una lettura sempilce ed avvincente.

    Per un appassionato del mondo di Warhammer 40000 un must La storia che qui prosegue coinvolgente e intrigante Anche se in inglese si riesce comunque a leggere, anche perch in italiano non esiste.

    Libro eccellente sugli avvenimenti che precedono l Eresia di Horus, consigliato agli amanti dell universo di Warhammer 40,000 Il pacco arrivato in condizioni perfette un giorno prima del previsto.

    Al igual que el primero, engancha much simo Quiz s no tan bueno como los de Dan Abnett pero los tres primeros de Horus Heresy son una maravilla.
