ADB has consistently said, on numerous blogs, that hes not there to write one legion as totally dominating another. Right in the first few pages there are scenes which seem to address a number of criticisms and fan objections to Battle for the Abyss and the actions of Magnus the Red.

That means this world would be churning out between sixteen point six million and twenty-five million every year. Gawd, how do I even talk about this? Plenty about figures within the legion and a little more about Angron but aarno the legion itself. Nothing so extensive that it boeden the opening of a very good tale. Determined to keep him alive, Lorgar focuses his efforts on saving his barbarous brother through corruption. The real meat of the story are the characters and this book follows several.


I think those weaknesses are there to offset the overwhelming advantages of their ferocity and hardiness in hand-to-hand combat. Aug 08, Dave rated it it was ok. December 29th — Imperial Knights Dethroned.

Kharn’s loyalty to his primarch Angron and his best friend Argel Tal, Lorgar’s loyalty to Angron, and the World Bowdsn loyalty to each other in the face of uncontrollable savagery. Each of the character is done exceedingly well. Determined to keep him alive, Lorgar focuses his efforts on saving his barbarous brother through corruption.
