Description

It's tone and sense of place consistent with what came before it and building on it at the same time. If you’ve ever wandered what happens to them, then this book might provide some of the answers in the form of Voyen. Having witnessed the events on Istvaan III, Deathguard Captain Garro seizes a ship and heads to Terra to warn the Emperor of Horus' treachery. Set slightly before the events of Galaxy in Flames, The Flight of the Eisenstein introduces the reader to more of the Death Guard and puts Captain Nathaniel Garro in the driving seat for most the novel. Auch er nimmt die Entwicklung um die Warrior Lodges wahr und kann sich mit deren verdeckten Aktivitäten nicht anfreunden.

Garro is a very well written character and grows on the reader very quickly, and it helps that we at least seen him from another POV in the previous books. For Warhammer 40,000, he is best known for his four Blood Angels novels, the audio drama Heart of Rage, and his two Sisters of Battle novels. It’s difficult for Flight of the Eisenstein to have room to tell its own story, as it does crossover a little too much with the previous novels imo - but this is to be expected. Anyway, I would say that I had grown very fond of The Sons of Horus and The Emperor's Children, but without a doubt by the end of 'The Flight' I had become very much attached to The Death Guard also.The character of Nathaniel Garro definitely grew on me as the story wore on, and I could almost feel James growing into *him* at the same time.

it reads fast, you will see a Primach konfronted with gruesome truth and learn a few things about imperial space ships. Can Garro and his men survive the depredations of Chaos and get his warning to the Emperor before Horus' plans reach fruition? Regardless of any flaws though, Flight of the Eisenstein is a sold entry into the series and one that you shouldn’t really miss. Everything was still fresh and exciting and by the time the new stuff came into play I had a greater appreciation of what was going on because of the added info. And here we sit, on a ship held together by rust and hope, with intent to dive into that ocean of madness.That headline rating does actually mask a little nuance because a bit like False Gods (which I also gave five stars) this was slow to get going, the effort of catching up to where we left proceedings at Isstvan III while we examined the buildup to the betrayal from the perspective of the Death Guard a little hard going at points. This one starts off with a Rashomon-like vibe in that we get different perspectives of things we've already experienced. As a result, there are places where Garro can sometimes come across as a bit too similar to Loken in character, and it’s as if Swallow saw what characters people liked about the first three books and decided to incorporate some of them into his own. The events of 'The Flight' are equally as intense and emotive as they were in 'Galaxy in Flames' if only slightly diminished by the story being centred on a new cast, predominantly made up of The Death Guard.

And I don't think I have said anything about them, but I have to collectors editions, and the author after-word is AWESOME in every single book. Garro’s challenges and his reactions create a point of distinction between him and the otherwise very similar everymen Loken and Tarvitz. I would even say this became my favorite novel in the series so far because it ends well, there is a lot of action and demons and such, and it kind of wraps up the previous three novels in a good way. His writing includes the Marc Dane action thrillers, the Sundowners steampunk Westerns and fiction from the worlds of Star Trek, Marvel, Tom Clancy, Warhammer 40000, Doctor Who, 24, Deus Ex, Stargate, 2000AD and many more.

The story follows on directly from the horrors of the massacre at Istavaan III, where loyalist legions are slaughtered by those whom follow Horus. I tried the Kindle version because the trade paperback editions are out of circulation and was happy with the formatting and ease of use.

The story moves on to Istavaan III and retells it from the now injured and recuperating Garro who’s been assigned command of the frigate Eisentstein, along with Captain Grulgor. We get a variety of battle scenes here, ranging from Death Guard Pre-Heresy conflicts to space combat. It feels that each author is really trying to leave their own mark on the series which I think is keeping the quality a level above what I was expecting.This book is bloody brilliant and seriously one of Swallows crowning achievements of his great, if vacillating in quality, work with Black Library. The Eisenstein becomes stranded in the Warp until it is rescued by Rogal Dorn and the Imperial Fists. However a lot of the dialogue falls into a common trap authors face when depicting astartes, particularly in 30k: they sound like parodies of Shakespearean characters. All of the Horus Heresy books have astonished me with how much better written they were than I expected.
