The Black Library team have created a truly rich universe and these books are absolutely fascinating. Galaxy In Flames is the conclusion to the grandiose opening trilogy of The Horus Heresy and what a butcher's bill there is.

That only really happens near the end of the book and it's pretty much because book three of the Horus Heresy gets us to a point that the future books in the series will be racing to catch up to. It's a bad time to be a good guy in the Imperium and the author brings this to life very well as the noose tightens and the plot is made clear. They were our brothers,’ said Aximand and Abaddon was astonished to find tears spilling down his brother’s cheeks. Loken was built up by Abnett and then McNeill to be a conflicted soul - tortured at the idea that his brothers are being taken over by the power of the warp; starting to hear 'the music of the spheres'; but here his character development was limited.Horus and his brothers make haste to Istvaan III under the guise of pacifying an uprising to cull their legions of any deserters. They are cunning and ambitious, but they are very prideful and arrogant on the other side of the coin. The third installment of the trilogy showing Horus's fall to Chaos, focuses on the tragic events on Isstvan III, where the loyalist factions of the Traitor Legions were slaughtered with the use of Virus bombs deployed by Horus's fleet. There is such an intriguing fear of religion, the supernatural, and sorcery in the first two books, and the switch to embrace it by the betrayers is surprising (but no less dramatic).

These nouns only begin to describe the heinous acts that awash the third chapter of The Horus Heresy. This doesn’t make the book bad by any stretch of the imagination, but it takes away from what could be. A clear plot with stakes both personal (for those about to be bombed) and wider (the bombing is kicking off a galaxy wide revolt). MASS SPOILERS AHEAD) So, this is probably one of the most important moments in the series (that I forgot about until someone jogged my memory).

There are two novels in the Horus Heresy so far that have had to deal with war on a scale like this, and they are in my point of view Galaxy in Flames and Dan Abnett’s Know No Fear. Other than wrapping up a few dangling plot threads from the Luna Wolves this turned into an Emperor’s Children book.

Life has a way of keeping things moving and changing and it's taken me away from talking about, working on and playing the hobby i love so much.Dan Abnett set the ball rolling with Horus Rising, and Graham McNeill followed with a disappointing False Gods. I'd have preferred the novels just went along one time scale rather than the next book being set before the events of this one and eventually catching up, but that's just a small issue as, in all fairness, the way things are done does work quite well. My only real experience with warhammer and the HH came from this trilogy so I had no idea of what was to come. This is also the first time we meet Nathaniel Garro of the Death Guard who players a bigger role in other books. About two months ago, I made my first post on this subreddit when I finished Horus Rising, my first Warhammer novel.

If a refund is payable to you we will process the refund as soon as possible, and, in any case within fourteen (14) days.Horus commits the Sons of Horus under Serghar Targost and Luc Sedirae to the battle while sending Ezekyle Abaddon and Horus Aximand to confront their former Mournival brothers Loken and Torgaddon. The Battle of Isstvan III is quite excellent, and I am excited to see where the series is going next, especially with some different POVs. The ending is one of the bleakest ever and when you finish the novel you just can't wait to read the following ones. Second read (12/26/21): I still feel like Horus's transformation from loyal son of the Emperor to diabolical villain was too fast. Honour and pride had been all but stolen from him and Artuas wanted revenge for the wound he felt to himself and to the Imperium.
