Pdf (Angel Exterminatus) BY Graham McNeill
Return of characters from FULGRIM and even cooler to read the origins of Iron Warriors from STORM OF IRON and DEAD SKY BLACK SUN It s clear from the writing that McNeill enjoys writing the Iron Warriors and I hope that Perturabo will feature in another novel before the Horus Heresy raws to a closeRecommended Age 16Profanity Nothing too severeViolence Lots of bloody gory glorious space marine combatSex NoneNick SharpsElitist Book Reviews Boom Angel Exterminatus is book 23 of the HH series Really yep And sadly it was awesome I am not saying the last 3 weren t good but hey in a series like this that ha This is another case of preliminary impressions from early in the bookI ve previously mentioned McNiell s tendency towards painfully florid verbiage in my comments on The Reflection Crack Scalia V. Epstein d If anything it s gotten even worse He wasted ten to fifteen minutes with bruise purple prose to say you are areadnaught now to a character who hadn t been seen before and hasn t made his return yet It has been so painfully boring that I m beginning to Material Alchemy doubt if there s even a short story s worth of content in this book So much ink spilled over so little import justrives me away from the story crushing any sembance of immersion and causing me to tune out what s happening We re barely into chapter two and this book feels like it s Falling For A Boss dragged on for ages alreadyIn the first engagement Perturabo stopped his whole legion to lay seige to a company of Imperial Fists who were garrissoning a fortification that they hadn t even built The narration states that heid this to humble that legion The problem is when you look at the engagement what you have is a strategic humilation for the Iron Warriors who get bogged Basics of successful agriculture in the tropics down for a protracted period by a miniscule opposing force take significant losses and burn through substantial amounts of munitions to take a strategically unimportant planet They even admit that the fortification could have been wiped off the planet via orbital bombardment and the legion saved for less pointless endeavors if not for the petulent Perturabo wanting to get a scrap in with the Sons of Dorn All itoes is further validate the Emperor s Regenerating Agriculture: Policies and Practice for Sustainability and Self Reliance decision to keep the Iron Warriors off the front lines andoing menial work But you have to admire McNiell s brazenness at proving the Iron Warriors to be masters of seigecraft by showing that they are absolute crap at itThe problems and plot holes have only gotten bigger and blatant as the book wears on I buy Fulgrim treating with an Eldar for the They Hear Me Crying Now! (The True Story of Child Abuse Continued) - Child Abuse True Stories diversion of it but the entire issue of how the loyalists ended up with an Eldar guide is completely unaddressed It is as if he were hoping we wouldn t ask the uestionespite needing anything to Mobilizing Islam distract the mind from thereadful prose The problems pile on when chronometers begin to misbehave while traversing the tendrils of realspace woven through the Eye of Terror These paths while also key plot points are a minefield of plotholes The book states outright that they BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) didn t even need the Geller Field meaning that these paths must be realspace and not warpspace and that the vessels are not attempting to traverse them in the warp That leaves them running on their sublightrives The Eye of Terror encompasses a zone of space which contained ozens of Eldar worlds thus its exterior extent must be hundred of light years across Tendrils of realspace extending into this zone would still be governed by realspace rules which means it would be impossible to uickly traverse the paths above
