Description

Half a galaxy away, Graucis Telomane of the Grey Knights has been readying himself for this day, and plans six centuries in the making are finally set in motion – plans that will see the eradication of the Emperor’s greatest mistake once and for all.

Naturally, Aaron Dembski-Bowden’s Betrayer was a big part of my preparation, being the seminal Horus Heresy World Eaters novel. We have Kossolax the Foresworn, a powerful warlord and the current master of the Conqueror – Angron’s ancient flagship. Because it felt like the true point of this book was to make you understand how the nails feel and operate. That became one of my favourite parts – in another world, I could have written a novel about that story alone! A deeper character study of Angron is something I think I would have enjoyed more (and is possibly what his Horus Heresy-era novel is more in line with) but given what little I know about the man, perhaps it is wise to keep him off the page for as long as Guymer does.I’m not suggesting that anyone should read sixty-plus books to understand one slim novel, but that kind of familiarity would doubtless help. Every character within this story (with the exception of one which I will speak of later) has a very interesting arc and I never wanted to skip one character’s progression in favor of another. I think my only gripe is the number of Sarrin ex machina, and it's entirely reasonable how it happens, I just didn't find it narratively compelling all the time (and it does happen rather a lot). He's just rage made manifest, and the narrative makes it abundantly clear that there is no possible redemption for him. Equally consumed by Angron’s mere existence, they at least have different ideology to the rest of the cast.

This weekend is set to be one of the bloodiest on record, when the World Eaters arrive in Warhammer 40,000 as their own faction complete with a new codex, new models, and the big guy himself, Angron. David: With Angron, and characters like him, you don’t really look at them from the inside – from their perspective.Marooned on a worthless moon with a rag-tag band of traitors as despicable as himself, Ortan Leidis of the Angels of the Grail dares to dream of something greater.
