This story excited me in a ways i can describe here. Honestly who doesn't love the idea of super assassins of on a daring mission to stop the really bad thing from happening. While this isn't quite guardians of the galaxy in space its pretty close. We have several different assassins all highly trained to perform a single task and we are going to take them all and give them a single objective. What a joy to read. It sadly has very little overall effect on the series however its super fun.

I love the series, and was thrilled when I saw this was gonna feature members of the Officio Assasinorum (sp?). But the characters were all kinda soft, considering they were supposed to be assasins, and were all forgetable. The plot does nothing to further the storyline of the "heresy" and I actually found myself rooting for the badguy as he was the only one who seemed like a legitimate threat to anyone. No real twists to speak of. My least favorite entry into the Horus Heresy series.
