SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW: Warhammer 40K: Horus Heresy: Shadows of Treachery - Ed. Christian Dunn

Release Date: 27/09/12


From the battlefields of Phall and Isstvan, to the haunted shadows of Terra itself – the greatest war in the history of mankind rages on. While the traitor Legions continue their campaign of terror across the galaxy, preparations are made for the defence of the Imperial Palace and the final, inevitable reckoning that must yet come between Horus and the Emperor...


To be honest this book is one that you might want to watch picking up if you’ve been pretty up to date with buying a number of the E-books as well as the audio titles from the Black Library as quite a few of them have been about before. Don’t get me wrong if you’ve not purchased either it’s a book that you’ll love especially with the rich writing talent within but if you’ve already got a lot of the addition mediums, the odds are you’ll feel a little short changed.

That said, the writing is crisp, the short stories a wonderful diversion for journeys and when backed with a whole host to dip into all taking part during mankinds galactic civil war makes this a book that would be wonderful for a Christmas Gift. All in pretty reasonable but check what the person you’re buying it for already has as otherwise you may find it hardly touched.
