Overview

Having made a miraculous recovery from the grevious injuries he suffered on Davin, Warmaster Horus now leads the triumphant Imperial forces against the rebel world of Isstvan III. An unprecedented alliance between the Sons of Horus, Death Guard, World Eaters and Emperor' Children Legions seems more than capable of overwhelming the paltry mortal defences - indeed, such a display of force seems unneccesary? Putting their own concerns aside, Garviel Loken and his loyal kinsmen lead their companies to the surface only to learn the full, horrifying truth, and the legendary war known as the Horus Heresy begins with the most foul act of betrayal imaginable...

The third book in the first trilogy of the Horus Heresy is fantastic. This is a book about the first stand for the emperor against the Traitor Horus, and the great battle of Isstvan III. Horus shows his true colours to the imperium, the rememberencers are killed and the next stage of attack is planned. Ben Counter, while obviously working from Dan Abnett¿s outline, is a great author. He is a very descriptive writer, and makes you feel as if you are present during the bloodshed and his word choice evokes just the right emotions from the reader. I anxiously await the next book in the Horus Heresy, as well as other novels by mister Counter.

The third book of the Horus Heresy has the traitor Horus finally showing his true colours. Having decided to wage war on the Emperor he once served, his first move is to purge the loyalists on his fleet, and even those from within his own legion.He sends all those he cannot trust from his own and three other legions to the surface of a planet to fight against some rebels there. Once the battle is underway the planet is subjected to a vicious double attack - a biological weapons designed to kill everything living, followed by a planet-wide firestorm. Of course, adeptus astartes are hard to kill...This is a solid entry in the Horus Heresy series, better than the second book, which I felt stuttered.

Galaxy In Flames was not as good as the first two books but it looks like it has set the stage for a lot to happen in the fourth novel. The Warmaster along with Abaddon and Little Horus have very small parts in this book until the very end. But Saul Tarvitz, Lucius and Lord Commander Eidolon who Loken first meet on Murder have large parts to play.

Let the galaxy burn! Book 3 of The Horus Heresy series, which continues to impress and astound me with it’s vast scope and ever surprising plot twists. In this installment we begin to grasp the full extent of Horus’ treachery. For a series that is entirely about warfare there is a surprising amount of intrigue and character development not to mention very cool concepts (like traveling and communicating through the Warp) which sets this stage far apart from anything else I’ve read. I’m pretty sure these stories were developed long after the original role-playing board games were a success, so it’s kind of amazing that they succeed, by themselves, on such a high literary level. This isn’t science fiction fan service, but a very smartly plotted and above all unique universe which I so love. On to the next one, for the Emperor!
