About this deal

Lucius does a awesome job cementing the Slaanesh ideals and all the hints about the whole Lucius the Eternal deal made me giddy.

I'm quite happy how he's developed in Galaxy in Flames, and I actually find myself eager to learn about what he's getting up to with Sindermann, Keeler, Oliton and Garro on the Eisenstein. Ben Counter, as well as making several contributions to Inferno magazine, has written the Soul Drinkers and Grey Knights series and two Horus Heresy novels for the Black Library. It's an annoying way of doing it and I kind of feel this might be where the Witcher TV series got its idea for the amount of stupid time jumps. Don't get me wrong there was a fair amount of violent action for big fans of this, but in terms of character tensions it largely felt like each character had 1 major development and that was that. I couldn't help but thinking that Loken or Torgadden would have stood up Horus over this long before Isstvan.

I found his writing to be just about as good as Abnett's or McNeill's and some of his battle scenes were exceedingly well-crafted. Whereas another one of his brothers holding the line with him becomes envious and thinks Saul is hogging all the glory.

His eyes met those of Horus Aximand and he saw a sorrow that matched his own echoed in his brother's eyes. Other than wrapping up a few dangling plot threads from the Luna Wolves this turned into an Emperor’s Children book. After False Gods, Counter takes the Sons of Horus to Isstvann where they put their latest plan into action. It seems most people were more perturbed by writing style of these piece, but I didn't mind this too much.The arm poses were very static and even though the torsos were very intricate i felt they didn't portray the feeling for the templars that i thought they should have. The Heresy moves on apace, as Horus plots to destroy all those who oppose his plans to usurp the Emperor.
