Ssassins are covered very well irstly because you get to see them in action As the execution Sons of the Devil, Vol. 2 force is assembled the group goesrom location to location picking up assassins immediately after their previous missions have completed Doing so the reader gets to read about the missions while they are happening to some effect Sure reading about a Vindicare sniping people isn t very interesting and it s a little corny in the book but reading about a Culexus the anti psyker assassin in action Merry Christmas, Daddy from the Culexus point of view was very interestingAlso you get toeel that the assassins are people with real personalities somewhat and Roped in feelings and such and you get to see how they interact with one another and how they view one another They aren t portrayed as single minded killers It s especially interesting to read how the Eversor thinks when theocus is on him ok maybe one of them is a single minded killerFinally the book includes an operative rom the Venenum and Vanus temples who aren t really mentioned often in the 40K background otherwise I think only in the Assassins codex rom 3rd edition They seem to be in there as plot devices though as opposed to being there or the necessity of their skills although the Vanus obviously contributes uite a bit to the missionI don t have many complaints about the book but there are two issues I have First I think the book jumps around too much and not necessarily to the story s benefit Generally moving rom one character s viewpoint to another can really help drive the story but only if it s done Samanthas Gift for that goal I don teel that Nemesis is really written to it with such a goal There are two separate stories that are going on inside it and although they are related the jumping between the two probably should be done a little less reuently Of course that s my opinion and I m not a professional authorThe second one is very minor and is of a confusion than a complaint There are two parts earlier in the book one at the beginning and one in the middle where Horus could be involved yet it seems like he s purposely kept apart Courting Miss Adelaide (Noblesville, Indiana, from the action then some of the characters directly interact with him at the end and it really doesn t seem like there was a reasonor it It s probably solely because he wasn t really relevant to the story at that point but it stuck out at meSo there are a ew things I want to also talk about but of course if you haven t read the book you shouldn t read them So stop reading if you only wanted a review SPOILER ALERT The book gives a very clear hint that someone warned Horus about the assassination attempt and even the First Chaplain is surprised that Horus was aware There s some suggestion that it might be a spy in the Imperial Palace but I think the implication is that the Chaos Gods are whispering directly to Horus We know that when he assaults Terra he s going to be significantly enhanced by the Chaos Gods gifts so I suspect this is the start of them showing their avor to him It certainly will make A Colton Target future dialogueinteractions with Horus interestingThe responserom both the Emperor and Horus regarding assassins is one of the Love Isnt Enough final parts of the book but is very interesting The Emperor declares a changerom the Assassination clades to a governed Prodigal Prince Charming form presumably the Officio Assassinorum but defends the need to keep such a group because in the war to come every weapon in the arsenal of the Imperium will be called to bear Horus however describes assassins as a tool of the weak I justound that rather Task Force Bride fascinating the noble Emperor using a backhanded means to try to end the war with the traitorous Horus decrying a similar attempt by one of his alliesI m very excited to read the next books in the series I can t waitFrom my blog A solid read Not among the greatest in the series and the tie in to the Heresy isn t so tight you have to read it but it s a cool look into a different aspect of the Imperium. It's even begun But what they cannot know is that another assassin is abroad already with his sightsirmly set on killing the Emperor.

Dark assassin as he works his way toward his objective is interesting but problematic in A Soldiers Family (Wings of Refuge, fluff terms he is a pariah bonded with a warp creature and I thought pariah s were anathema to anythingrom the warp but that s just me being a Warhammer geekFor Desejo Indomado (To Tame A Playboy, fans of 40K I m not giving anything away by telling you that both partiesail in their primary mission and the story climaxes in a battle between the imperials and the dark assassin The plot moves Dangerously Attractive (Harlequin Intrigue fast and is well written there is the obligatory cameosrom some of the big 40k Mistress figures Rogal Dorn Erebus Horus and best of all the Emperor himself get aew lines at last All in all I enjoyed it but it did not reach the uality of other books in the series all right the ones by McNeil Abnett James Swallow seems to be a hit a miss author Cinderella Story Part 2 (36 Hours) for me I don t really careor many of his Blood Angles books but I really enjoyed Flight of the Eisenstein I believe that Mr Swallow should stick with the Horus Heresy novels because Nemesis is a very good readThe book A Ranchers Redemption feels like part detective novel and part Dirty Dozen There is a serial killer that is being tracked down by local law enforcement on a sleepy little world that has largely untouched by the heresy We also see the an executionorce put together by all of the different sects or clades of assassins on Terra These killers are sent to kill the Warmaster and stop his insurrection before it can continue any A Doctor, a Nurse, a Christmas Baby furtherI am usually not aan of two books in one that we often seen in the Black Library stories but this one wasn t so bad in my opinion For one thing the two stories were merged together pretty uickly and A Mother in the Making for another thing both threads were just so damn interesting I wasn t left upset when they story switched gearsThe Horus Heresy books are always interesting to me as we generally know what is going to happen at the end We KNOW that the execution suad will be ultimately unsuccessful in killing the Warmaster but Swallow does a good job of weaving a story in there that stilleels as if it has a successful conclusion even if Horus does surviveI give this book 4 neural shredders to the brain pain out of 5 Finally At the very end of 2018 being up to date with the Horus Heresy Her Kind Of Cowboy franchise I decided to go back to the book I skipped ages ago to Nemesis I heard that this story does not bring much to the main plot which was the primal reasonor the delay Another reason was my lack of interest in the Officio Assassinorum which now definitely raised tremendously This started slowly reminded me of another Swallow s work Flight of Eisenstein It took His Pregnant Christmas Princess forever to get meully engaged but ended up rather interesting and entertaining I started several times and I went through with it only on my third try Unfortunately this means that this tale is not immediately attractive to the reader but it gets better The variety of characters is uite pleasing second half of the book kept me very engaged and brought me a lot of knowledge and new understanding of the differences between the assassin temples The ending was not disappointing as well I am glad I took my time to Through the Language Glass finally read Nemesis and I believe the Horus Heresy knowledge I possess now made the experience enjoyable Is it skippable Yes Should you skip it Probably not It s worth a read I ve recentlyinished the latest Horus Heresy novel by James Swallow writer of Flight of the Eisenstein another antastic part of the series Nemesis It covers a plan by the Imperial assassin cults to send a team of assassins one rom each temple to assassinate Horus Of course a plan is simultaneously put into motion by the traitors to send a vicious assassin to kill the EmperorI ll start out by saying that I really liked this book it s a great addition to a great series Sure you know Private Arrangements (Forged of Steele, from the beginning that neither of the assassination plots succeed but that s not really the point of the series The main interest is seeing HOW it unfoldsThe S conveneTheir plan is to send a team of assassins to execute the arch traitor Horus and end the waror the galaxy of mankind before.

I would give it 45 there was a ew times I struggled with some of the ideas being espoused by some of the characters that didn t seem to Sanctuary fit what we know of them It started off slowor me but really picked up before the midway point So give it a chance Read the 13th book in the Horus Heresy series in the Black Library suggested reading order I really thought I would enjoy this one a great deal being that it Forever Faithful (Forever Faithful, focuses on the Assassin Clades of the Warhammer 3040k universe It ended up not being as gri a good read really enjoyed the characters and storyline Iind that it could uite of easily been a stand alone book and Friendfluence felt that it didn t really contribute much to the entire story arc whilst having aew minor items that affect the entire story it could uite easily of been a normal Warhammer 40000 book rather than part of the Horus Heresy I One Part Woman felt that i wasn t disappointed with the characters deaths and actually expected them all the way through and unlike in other heresy booksound that I wasn t eager Stranger for their return this is unlike any other heresy book where you are excitedor the characters return such as Garviel Loken Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis from Horus rising Galaxy inlames and False gods overall a good read but i elt i could of skipped it out of the series and not have to worry The Warhamer 40K genre mash up alooza continues with the awesome little novel that starts out sorta like a gritty whodunnit murder mystery before reminding itself that it is in act a Warhammer 40K novel and goes back to blowing up planets and shit Yeah gone are the Astartes super human soldiers though and in is a small group of highly trained assassins hunting Horus Lupercal and who are in turn being hunted themselves by something way crazy A couple surprises a couple remember the Alamo moments and ton of The English Spy (Gabriel Allon, fun Nemesis continues what is already an amazing series When Iirst started reading the mainline Horus Heresy novels with Horus Rising I had only the most rudimentary knowledge of Warhammer 30k40k lore Some of the To See Paris and Die foreshadowing of those early books was lost on me because I wasn t intimatelyamiliar with the setting but on the other hand I was able to be surprised by revelations character arcs etc because I didn t already know what was going to happenWith Nemesis even my rudimentary knowledge of the setting was enough to spoil the ending Heck even knowing that there are books in the series beyond this is enough to spoil the ending That would be Out of China fine if some interesting macro level developments happened in the background the macro world building parts are often the most interesting anyway but there wasn t much of that either That said I think this was one of the better written entries in the series and I could see it appealing to a wider audience than much of the Horus Heresy does of note this book managed to crack the NYT Bestseller list Focusing on expertly trained humans rather than superhuman Astartes allowsor a sort of middle ground where you get to Mary Tudor follow characters that are emotionally relatable well some of them while still getting to see them do cool stuffIt was a bit overlong and not that noteworthy in the grand scheme of the series but it was well written and enjoyable Additionally the last post climax chapter has some clever things to say about the setting written with subtlety than you often see in licensediction A solid if not spectacular addition to the Horus Heresy series Nemesis is still an entertaining read with As Aventuras de Hornblower (Saga Hornblower further insights into the WH40K universe The storyollows two different perspectives that of a group of Imperial assassins sent to kill Horus and also an opposing assassin sent to kill the Emperor The imperial assassins storyline is The Accidental Tourist fairly standardair as the team is assembled one of each type of killer being introduced in series adding two types of assassin not seen in the tabletop game and proceeding with their mission The interweaving story of the.
