Description

Under the command of the newly appointed Warmaster Horus, the Great Crusade continues. Fulgrim, Primarch of the Emperor's Children, leads his warriors into battle against a vile alien foe, unaware of the darker forces that have already set their sights upon the Imperium of Man.

Loyalties are tested and every murderous whim indulged as the Emperor's Children take their first steps down the road to true corruption - a road that will ultimately lead them to the killing fields of Isstvan V....

Not my favorite, but maybe the best of the Horus Heresy.

I don't like the emperor's children or many of their characters to begin with, and this book made me dislike them more. They were prancing dandies shouting perfection perfection etc.

But! This book embraced all those annoying, offsetting, decadent, and offensive traits to make the reader hate then more and more as the book goes on. The imagery is truly top tier and while I don't like the focus of the book, it rivals Eisenhorn and Gaunt in quality. A must read if you are going through the Horus Heresy. It ties the last two books together neatly while telling its own descent into madness. And much less Lucius than the last three books. I hate that guy lol.
And David Timson did a great job too, characters were easy to tell apart.

Great Narration, okay story

What did you love best about Fulgrim?

The dropsite massacre, being so iconic in the heresy, is portrayed for the first time and is really quite incredible.

Would you be willing to try another book from Graham McNeill? Why or why not?

Absolutely, while Fulgrim wasn't my favourite book of his, I have read others and consider Graham McNeill to be amongst the best Black Library authors there are

Which character – as performed by David Timson – was your favorite?

I quite liked the portrayal of Eldrad Ulthran. I was curious as to how he would pull off the voice of the Eldar and I believe he did it justice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Istvaan V dropsite Massacre and the beheading of Ferrus Mannus

Any additional comments?

I liked the character of Fulgrim before reading this book, and now he is one of my least favourite traitor primarchs. I'm not sure what that says about the book, though.

Rough beginning for narrator

For the first 5 or so hours I was zoning out or lost. No matter the situation the narrator sounded like he was narrating a water buffalo wandering around in some national geographic show with no emotion. The voices all sounded the same I couldn't tell who was talking. I ended up stopping for the day and when I started it again he seemed to get a better rythem although I did find myself zoning out occasionally.

Not my favorite in the series so far

awesome book with great narrator but this one just wasnt as awesome as its predecessors in the series, i was mainly disapointed with the rememberancers role in this one as there plots have formed interesting breaks from all the killing in the other books as well as making for good "red shirts" in this book its all about the gore and blood lust of a twisted demi god seaking "perfection" and retelling the events of horus' betrayal from another perspective.

McNeill is the weakest of the series authors

Though I’m glad there wasn’t yet another reprise of the Istivan III battle, the first third of the book was a real crawl. I didn’t really feel connected to any of the characters this time around, as there was no real protagonist. The fall of Fulgrim was certainly more thought out and tragic than Horus’...this is definitely guilty of the “every warrior is more perfect and beautiful than the last” descriptors of the series. When everyone is perfect/grand then no one is.

Excellent

I loved this book. I only wish it had gone more in depth into fulgrim before he fell.

So good

My favorite of the Heresy series up to this point.
The theatrics of the legion and the irony of their fall was engrossing to say the least.

Brutal, sadistic, and debaucherous in a way that reminds me of the horror of Clive Barker.

narrator sucks

the narrator makes all the characters sound like pevish fops, not at all like the towering badasses they are supposed to be.

Good read

I liked it. The story dragged on a little far to long at the beginning.

Left something to be desired

Speaker: He had somewhat of a uniform and annoying voice. It was hard to tell the characters apart. He wasnt that bad though i suppose...and was probably tainted by the story.

Disclaimer: possible spoilers.
Story: It was meh. The plot was dull. The dialog was cliche and boring. You'll hear the word "perfection" so many times itll drive you insane. I get why they fell to chaos. Thier mind was gone from all the dumb diatribes thier primarch spat out. Everything is touted as being so epic....yet i had trouble feeling it. The characters seem naively incompetent. I dont identify with them at all. Ok ....so they are evil and im not supposed to. Well the author seems to be wanting the readers to see fulgrim as a tragic hero. Instead hes just a panzy that was like "Oh....chaos? Sure why not?" And at least could the good guys of the book not stand around sucking thier thumbs???? I mean....they are all like "hey things dont seem right here" right before they die horrible deaths.

Ok...the book isnt all bad... there are some good parts. Actually the elements of a good story are there. Its just like a soup with good ingredients but some are cooked all wrong.
