About this deal

Garro was a stead fast character, and I really took a liking to him pretty immediately, and I really enjoyed his group of battle-brothers. It’s all quite high-flown stuff but sometimes its good to read an emotional fantasy, in that the characters are given reign to express emotions that would be unlikely to happen in reality. The escape from the Istvaan system was awesome, and the journey through the warp and battle with Grulgor's men/Nurglings was fun as hell. Nonetheless, my complaints were relatively few, and Swallow does a good job of showing us the inner turmoil of these warriors who are faced with situations they never thought they might face. Those of you who read the first three of the serie will read it just to follow the story line and you won't be disappointed.

There's a lot of action packed into a relatively short book, and the constantly moving pace is keeping me turning the pages and hopping from book to book without slowing down. Book 4 took a slightly different tack than with the previous 3 novels, because much of the story focussed on a flight to Terra.I rather enjoyed the opening ballard between Garro and Grulgor – who delights in putting down old-straight-arrow-Garro whenever he can.

You're not going to cover much of the same ground at all, so don't worry about a retelling, you will occasionally see a familiar face but this is an entirely new story. If you've made it this far, you're probably familiar with the past three books, which tells the tale of Horus and his betrayal up to this point. I had a gap of 6 months or more between book 3 and book 4, but I can't wait to charge through a few more of these right now.Overall I enjoyed this book a great deal, from the character interactions to the descriptions of the action, and it left me really wanting to read more of Swallow's Garro. Radnja ove knjige se preplice sa radnjom predhodne te mozemo videti iz jos jednog ugla Horusovu izdaju i zverstvo pocinjeno na Isstvanu III.
