An awesome collection of Short Stories from the Horus Heresy; Each are short, brilliant, and a must read to any fan of the 40k/HH universe. ( )

This is basically a conglomeration of short stories that pertain to the Heresy saga. Enjoyable read....I particularly enjoyed the story The Last Church, which details how the Emperor basically eliminated houses of worship on Terra to pave the way for his strictly secular rule of Terra and his anticipated galaxy conquest. Some eerie parallels there with respect to the U.S. ( )

Very interesting story collection. From Legio Custodes (as far as I know first story about these mysterious warriors), Battle Sisters (interesting story how internal conflict can prevent people from thinking straight) to Astartes legions (in very disturbing stories, especially those concerning Dark Angels (again, brilliant old-shool vs new generation conflict) and Word Bearers) and their Primarchs (story of rather deranged Angron) to the Emperor himself (this story raises the same question as “Mechanicum” novel – what are exactly Emperor’s intentions with humanity?).

Humanity’s future truly looks grim – they depend on almost invincible warriors that have a rather no-compromise approach to life… and aren’t compromises what life is mostly made of?

It will be interesting to see what happens next.
