Description

What a series, what an amazing bunch of authors, and what an overall story this is turning out to be. I found that the writing style lived up to or exceeded the other novels in this series and Swallow really redeemed himself from the Blood Angels books. I think I can appreciate the more tightly focused story around a single character (Garro) this time around, though in doing so found his personal religious rebirth a little tiresome by the end.

The Eisenstein becomes stranded in the Warp until it is rescued by Rogal Dorn and the Imperial Fists. If you haven't read the first three books, or if you're not a fan of Warhammer 40k, then this isn't a book you'll enjoy. His Marc Dane novels are fast-paced action thrillers featuring a former MI6 field officer turned private security operative; NOMAD is the first in the series, published in the US by Forge. The narrator goes pretty much overboard with the acting; half the Death Guard (even in their uncorrupted state) sound like zombie orcs, there are some that speak like Gollum (Kaleb, most notably), and some are so posh (Voyen maybe), that such an acting could only fit an arrogant playboy like Fulgrim. The story follows on directly from the horrors of the massacre at Istavaan III, where loyalist legions are slaughtered by those whom follow Horus.In den ersten Bänden freundeten wir uns mit Garviel Loken, Capitain der Luna Wolves, spätere Sons of Horus, an und lernten seine bedächtige, souveräne Art zu schätzen. This one starts off with a Rashomon-like vibe in that we get different perspectives of things we've already experienced. With good reason too, the stage is grand, the situation is dire and all rests on the slimmest glimmers of hope. It works almost as well as a standalone as it does in the series and I would rate it as high as Fulgrim or Legion as the best of the series.

Das tut dem Werk sehr gut, und so liegt mit "Flight of the Eisenstein" ein spannender Teil der Horus Heresy-Reihe vor. However a lot of the dialogue falls into a common trap authors face when depicting astartes, particularly in 30k: they sound like parodies of Shakespearean characters. Can Garro and his men survive the depredations of Chaos and get his warning to the Emperor before Horus's plans reach fruition?I tried the Kindle version because the trade paperback editions are out of circulation and was happy with the formatting and ease of use. We also learn more about the Imperial Fists in Book 4, but I still really want to meet more of the Legions, which will be encountered in later novels. It is still a great read to follow and see what happened aboard the Eisenstein after the events of Isstvan III.

As a result, there are places where Garro can sometimes come across as a bit too similar to Loken in character, and it’s as if Swallow saw what characters people liked about the first three books and decided to incorporate some of them into his own. There is some effort made in the first act of the story to flesh out his legion in the same way the first trilogy developed the Luna Woves/Sons of Horus, but in FOTE the bad-guys are so obvious and obnoxious as to make any tension boring, this along with a metric tonne of plot armour the story didn't carry much compulsion. It was with some horror that I started this book and realised that I'd never actually read a Black Library novel by James Swallow, my experience of him thus far restricted to a few Blood Angels short stories and his Star Trek novels. Spoilers->Rogal Dorn could have been explored more but it was not really necessary to the story (I just love the lore). The strongest scenes in the book were towards the middle where you know those loyal Space Marines who so eagerly want to get to the battle to fight.Garro is a very well written character and grows on the reader very quickly, and it helps that we at least seen him from another POV in the previous books. 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. Human drama is fine, military action is fine but want I want to read about is the Primarchs and this book had them. In focusing largely on Garro, the narrative really fleshes out the shock to the system instigated by larger events.
