Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
So wie gleich zwei völlig unterschiedliche und gegensätzliche Orden die Hauptrollen in Guy Haleys neuem Space Marines-Battles-Roman besetzen, so unterschiedlich und gegensätzlich ist auch die Qualität des Romans selbst.

Aber zunächst einmal zum Wesentlichen, der Handlung: die Blood Drinkers, ein Nachfolgeorden der berühmten Blood Angels, die sich, anders als viele ihrer Brüderorden dem Rausch des Bluts vollkommen hingeben, haben auf verschiedensten Planeten Aufstände von Symbiontenkulten niedergeschlagen. Als dann plötzlich das Space Hulk "Death Of Integrity" aus dem Warp bricht und sich als Zentrum und Ausgangspunkt dieser Epidemie herausstellt, müssen die Blood Drinkers jedoch um Hilfe rufen, da sie alleine nicht in der Lage sind, das gigantische Konstrukt zu zerstören und die Zehntausenden von Symbionten an Bord zu vernichten. Ihr Hilferuf wird von den Novamarines, einem Nachfolgeorden der Ultramarines, die sich insbesondere durch ihre extrem enge Befolgung des Codex und ihre Ganzkörpertätowierungen auszeichnen, aufgefangen, die ihren Cousins sofort ihre Unterstützung anbieten - und auch von Forschungsteams des Adeptus Mechanicus, die mit dem Space Hulk so ihre ganz eigenen Pläne haben...

Guy Haley gelingt es dabei hervorragend, die völlig gegensätzlichen Orden mit Leben zu füllen, jedem seine eigene Geschichte und seinen eigenen Charakter auf den Leib zu schneidern, jeder auf seine Art düster und heroisch zugleich.

3 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Buchstabenverzehrer am 27. September 2013
Format: Taschenbuch
Mit "Death of Integrity" schreibt Guy Haley einen weiteren Warhammer 40k-Roman - der ihm sehr gut gelungen ist.

"Neu" an diesem Roman ist die parallele Darstellung zweier Space Marine-Orden, wie sie unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Einerseits kämpfen Novamarines, Nachfolgeorden der sehr codextreuen Ultramarines, andererseits Blood Drinkers, Nachfolgeorden der Blood Angels, gegen Symbionten auf einem gewaltigen Space Hulk. Natürlich mischt noch eine dritte Macht im WH40k-Universum mit, das Adeptus Mechanicus.

Die Story des Romans entwickelt sich eskalierend, aus einer kleinen Patrouille zur Aufklärung wird ein massiver Feldzug mit fast 200 (!) Terminatoren. Ebenso eskalieren die Konflikte zwischen den Marines der unterschiedlichen Orden - wie zu erwarten.

Besonders gut gelungen an "Death of Integrity" ist die Beschreibung der Lebenswelten der beiden Orden. Der Leser erfährt eine Menge Details über die beiden Space Marine-Orden, angefangen bei Kampftechniken über Bewaffnung, Riten vor der Schlacht und sogar etwas über den "Roten Durst / Schwarze Wut".

Fazit: Ein toller Space Marines-Battles Roman, der definitiv zu den besten der Serie gehört! Guy Haley, weiter so!

dieser Roman hat alles was ein WH40K Buch enthalten sollte: Düstere Atmosphäre, mörderische Kämpfe, starke Charaktere und eine Menge Misstrauen und Intrigen. Das Buch sehr gut beschrieben, und es ist schwierig es beiseite zulegen.

Well Paced, Great Plot, Memorable Scenes & Characters - Plus Surprises! 4. September 2013
Von Cypher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book sits alongside the best of the Space Marines Battles series. It explores in convincing detail the doubts and challenges faced by the 2 most senior figures in both the Chapters present in the novel - the Novamarines and Blood Drinkers. We see how Galt of the Novamarines is concerned about leading in the absence of the superior wisdom of his Chapter Master and how he values the wisdom of his mentor Veteran Sergeant whilst being concerned for his mentor's safety too. The Chapter Master of the Blood Drinkers, Caedis, is beset by different doubts, the threat of the Thirst and the Black Rage as well as his Chapter's unique methods of addressing these challenges. But also his concerns for humanity and his duty to protect the weak.

We also see the intermeshing of the 2 Chapters in battle with each side appreciating features of the others without either side being drawn into stereotypical positioning. Haley also brings to light a whole host of minor characters too. Probably not as well as Abnett can do when he is on form but creditable anyway.

Haley is particularly good at embellishing the traditions of the Chapters and differentiating these Successor Chapters from their respective parents. I particularly liked the depth he gave the Novamarines with the Shadow Novum and the purpose behind their tattoos. He really excels though when we see a Blood Drinker beset with the Black Rage and share his visions too. This feels like some really important writing.

I also enjoyed the tactical situation with the hulk itself. The main characters address risks pragmatically, they think through detailed battle plans and use their strengths to their advantage. We are a long way from this being a simple corridor by corridor search of a hulk that we are all too used to. He builds a great sense of menace, the adversaries are fearsome enough to warrant the fielding of nearly 200 Terminators and for the reader to still be uncertain of the outcome. This is particularly the case as the story is set in M38 - all of the characters could in theory be killed off in the novel without affecting canon which further heightens suspense. The 'natural' environment of the hulk is drawn well too - such as hulk quakes, radioactive fog and gravity issues as well as interacting with archaeotech.

There also some very interesting surprises in this novel too that come towards the end and one shocking revelation.

My disappointments were the Mechanicus characters and a situation at the end of the hulk part of the story which is confusing in its implications (I can not be more specific without this being a major spoiler). I felt the Mechanicus characters could have been better handled, they are fine but nothing original and nowhere near as good as those detailed by McNeill in the Priests of Mars series or Abnett in Titanicus.

I would also suggest it is worth reading the prelude to this book, which was released as 'The Rite Of Holos' in The Best of Hammer & Bolter 2, as this gives some additional insight into the turmoil within the Blood Drinkers Chapter as well the events that lead up to the Blood Drinkers' quest to discover the hulk Death of Integrity. It will also link in more closely to the main adversary in this book.

One of the better ones 15. September 2013
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one of the better Space Marine Battles. Although perhaps not quite as good as "the Battle of the Fang", which remains my favourite in the series, it is a rather close contender with almost all of the ingredients that make a good, exciting read. It tells the story of the purge of a space hulk infested with aliens that has the capacity of breaking in and out of real space and represents a large threat to all of the surrounding worlds.
Within this basic narrative, several other stories, dimensions and ingredients are weaved together.
One is the constant struggles of two Successor Chapters of Space Marines to continue to serve, despite being overstretched. One of these is an Ultramarine Successor chapter - the Novamarines. The other is that of the Blood Drinkers, one of the Successor Chapters of Sanguinius' Blood Angels. Both have their challenges, particularly the latter.

A second dimension is that of the two leaders of the two represented Chapters. Chapter Master Caedis, Lord of the Blood Drinkers, is determined to purge the xenos plague that the huge cemetery of lost ships harbours, although his days are numbered. First Captain Mantilio Galt of the Novamarines, is bereft with doubts about his duties, and these tend to affect his judgement.

A third dimension is the irruption of a Mechanicum squadron, just as the two Space Marine ones are about to destroy their target from afar. This irruption leads to a major reconsideration of the initial battle plan, with the devious and untrustworthy magi striving to recover as much lost technology while using their allies rather unscrupulously and keeping their own secrets, and in particular the one that lays at the centre of the hulk.
Well-told and fast-paced, even if not entirely original - Mechanicum expeditions to recover lost artefacts seem to be rather fashionable these days among Game Workshop authors - the book is both gripping and easy to read. It also contains a number of interesting twists where past, present and future collide and interact, with an undertone of gloom and doom, as the beleaguered Empire of Man and the human race declines and struggles to face multiple challenges.

I did, however, have at least one significant grip. The book never explains how the main prize that the Mechanicum priests are after ever got to be part of the Death of Integrity, especially since, given its age, it must have been one of the main components. Apart from this, and a few other minor quibbles which are not really worth mentioning at the risk of providing spoilers, this was a superb read. Four stars.

Bookworm Speaks!

The Death of Integrity by Guy Haley

****

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. As it is written in the tomes of the 41st millennium.

The Story: In the Imperium of Man there are hundreds or a thousand Space Marine Chapters but the focus seem be more on the first founding chapters such as the Dark Angels or the Space Wolves. Here, Guy Haley treats us to two successor chapters and their stories are allowed to be fleshed out. This is a favorite of Bookworm, when the short passages of the index are expanded.

Having tracked a genestealer brood across the sector, Chapter Master Caedis of the Blood Drinkers calls upon his old allies in the Novamarines to assist in the destruction of the space hulk designated Death of Integrity. But before they can unleash their plasma torpedoes, the Adeptus Mechanicus intervene and task both Chapters with a secretive mission into the heart of the hulk. With deadly xenos creatures seemingly lurking around every corner, Caedis treads a fine line between glorious victory and the damnation of eternal bloodlust carried by all sons of Sanguinius.
The Good: Space Hulks are key component of 40k lore. They are an amalgamation of starships, asteroids and ancient technology that have fused together over their journey through space and are usually infested with violent alien enemies like tyranid gene stealers, which are the main opponents in this story. This already sets up a very intriguing and dynamic setting for the books actions. The claustrophobic and poisonous setting and the sheer amount of material that composes a Space Hulk lends itself to a surprising amount of variety in the settings. The constant shifting of the hulk makes the setting itself become an enemy and more than just a background.

This is how films like Alien succeeded. A fight on a planet and one can just flee into the distance, it is not like that on a space born setting. There is no where to go and the walls are closing in. It creates a tangible feeling of tension and isolation.

Where this book really comes into its own is how the author differentiates between the Novamarines and the Blood Drinkers. The contrast between them is so intense that it can’t help but imbed itself in the reader’s memory. The Novamarines are successors of the Ultramarines and the Blood Drinkers are of the Blood Angels. While all are sons of the Emperor, both Chapters differentiate in ways that it creates tension between the groups and how the react to threats that really illustrates the author’s flexibility. He does a good job of shifting perspectives between the various protagonists of the story and keeping each one unique.

This is illustrated in how the different chapters prepare for war. The Novamarines are the sons of Roboute Guilliman who hailed from the civilized world of Macragge, their ceremonies are solemn, reflective and dignified. Whereas the Blood Angels are passionate, savage, and hot-blooded (no pun intended).

The Flaws: Because there are so many characters in this book we are not given time to sufficiently explore all of there personalities in depth, except perhaps Mantillo Galt. That is very much a missed opportunity. Also, while not necessarily the villain of the story, the head of the Adeptus Mechanicus, Magos Plosk is also very one dimensional. They do a good job of making his motivations understandable but he does not change very much through the text. Even Plosk’s big revelation near the end, towards the reader, is not particularly interesting. When reading it, the reader is more likely to go “huh?” rather that “woah!” It doesn't need to be said which one is preferable, at least to Bookworm.

The book is primarily told from the perspective of the Novamarines and since they are a successor of the Ultramarines, once again this may be evidence of Black Library’s favoritism towards the Ultramarines. The Blood Drinkers are interesting but again, their personalities come off as a little flat more towards the end. A major plot point is that the Blood Drinkers, like all the successor chapters of the Blood Angels, constantly struggle with the curse of Sanquinius, i.e. the Red Thirst and Black Rage, extreme bouts of blood lust and rage. This is contrasted by their beautiful appearance and sophisticated ways. This shown several times through the text to great effect but the problem is that, again they are largely blank slates and the fact that there is barely any middle ground. Its one side or the other.

Final Verdict: Death of Integrity may not be the strongest Space Marine Battles book, but the iconic setting and action-packed storyline with surprising amount of heart, easily overcomes its flaws.

Four out Five Stars.

I have read every one of the space marine battles books that are in print not electronic. This is a very worthy entry in the series. The interactions between the two chapters are interesting to see as it has the tension and respect you would expect of two successor chapters based on the progenitor legions. The interactions with the tech-priests of the adeptus mechanicus have all the suspicion and intrigue you would expect. There are a few mistakes with equipment and sometimes the structure of a sentence may not make sense but overall this is a very worthy entry in the series. Well worth the money spent to get it and worth the time to read it. It is on par with the rest of the space marines battles books and I would recommend almost all of them. Except for Architect of Fate.

This is an excellent account that shows a Space Marine incursion into a Space Hulk and their battles with the genestealers inside. It really does a nice job of showing the complications of battle in the hulk, and just how interesting a hulk is. The red-robed priests of Mars have their own agenda (Shocking!) and all in all, this is really well done.

Definitely pick up for a WH 40K fan, science fiction or military fiction fan.
