SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Warhammer 40K: Ultramarines: The Second Omnibus - Graham McNeill

Release Date: 24/05/12


The Ultramarines have been the honourable cornerstone of the Adeptus Astartes throughout their ten thousand year history. Captain Uriel Ventris fights to prove that he is worthy to return to the hallowed ranks of the Chapter after his exile to the Eye of Terror, and that he is free of the insidious taint of Chaos. But as the Iron Warriors move against Ultramar, a grim premonition comes to light: Ventris will have a part to play in the coming war, for good or ill.


The new compendium and value for money title featuring more of the Ultramarines in this, the second title. Its full of action with gripping close combat and bolter fire which when backed with a great lead character alongside a superb supporting cast, goes to demonstrate why Graham’s Ultramarines have been a sure hit with fans since the books original release.

Add to this wonderful stories, pyrrhic victories alongside the glorification of the chapter and when added to gripping arcs alongside top notch combat makes this a book that if you don’t own them already, is very hard to ignore. Great stuff.
