Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Chris Wraight is a writer of fantasy and science fiction, whose first novel was published in 2008. He's written several books set in the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes, including the bestselling Space Marine Battles novel Battle of the Fang. He doesn't own a cat, dog, or augmented hamster (which technically disqualifies him from writing for Black Library), but would quite like to own a tortoise one day. He's based in a leafy bit of south-west England, and when not struggling to meet deadlines enjoys running through scenic parts of it.

Von Matthias am 23. Juni 2014
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Kenner der WH40K Serien sind sich bewusst auf welcher Seite das Herz der White Scars schlägt. Dennoch ist dieser Roman gerade so gut gelungen, da es hier in erster Linie um das für Space Marine Legionen / Orden so untypische "Politik-Machen" geht.

Die White Scars sind grundsätzlich gesehen eine Legion welche, trotz beachtlicher Fähigkeiten, im Schatten der prinzipalen Space Marine Legionen des Imperium steht. Ihre Natur ist bescheiden, kühl und geprägt von ständigem Respekt gegenüber Verbündeten und Feinden.

Die Ereignisse um den Bürgerkrieg verlangen nun klare Entscheidungen, und als letzte Legion welche noch keine Seite bezogen hat, stehen die Scars unangenehm im Rampenlicht.

Ich habe dieses Buch gerne gelesen, da es den Charakter der Scars sehr vielseitig beschreibt und einmal mehr offen legt, dass nicht nur militärische Hindernisse das Übel einer Legion sein können.

Format: Taschenbuch
Es bleibt zu hoffen, dass Chris Wraight weiterhin die "White Scars" Serie ausbaut. Schon der Auftakt zum aktuellen Horus Heresy Roman "Brotherhood of the Storm - The Khan rides to war" überzeugte mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail und ließ den Leser in die Welt und der Vorstellungen der White Scars eintauchen. Die Problematik, mit welcher sich auch andere Legionen auseinanderzusetzen haben, dass zwischen Legionären von Terra und denen der Heimatwelt, im Falle der White Scars, der Chogorim, Spannungen bestehen, ist ein wesentlicher Bestandteil der Vorgeschichte.

Auch ohne "The Khan rides to war" gelesen zu haben, lässt sich in Band 2 der White Scars schnell eintauchen. Doch kennen Leser des ersten Bands schon die Protagonisten und deren Hintergründe.
Die Frage, die sich die Leser von Beginn an stellen werden ist, welche Ereignisse führen die White Scars nach Terra, wo sie an der Seite der Loyalisten den Palast des Imperators verteidigen werden? Denn bis zur Hälfte des Buches sieht es ganz und garnicht so aus, als wollten die White Scars überhaupt eine Seite wählen. Der Band führt sehr konsequent und detailliert aus, welche Rolle die White Scars unter den Legionen spielen, welchen Ruf sie haben und wie ihr Primarch, Jaghatai, von seinen Primarchenbrüdern gesehen und verstanden bzw. eben nicht verstanden wird.
Es ist das Bild eines Außenseiters, meist belächelt und noch undurchsichtiger erscheinend als die Alpha Legion, lediglich Magnus und seine Thousand Sons führen engere Beziehungen mit den White Scars. Das Schicksal der Thousand Sons nach Prospero und das Konzil von Nikaea nehmen ebenfalls eine großen Teil der Handlung ein.

Thoughtful Positioning Of White Scars And The Khan 7. Mai 2014
Von Cypher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the Horus Heresy novel next in publishing sequence after Dan Abnett's 'Unremembered Empire' but, this being Black Library it does not take place sequentially afterwards. The novel is set after Prospero but before the attack on Calth.

Although billed as a White Scars novel it does cover a lot of ground - the Space Wolves are the next most heavily covered but the book also gives a lot of coverage to a small group of Salamanders, one Iron Hands Space Marine as well as encounters with the Alpha Legion, Word Bearers and Death Guard plus a lot of Primarchs. Thankfully this is nowhere near as daunting as it might seem. In stark contrast to Unremembered Empire, the wide range of characters and allegiances are handled well and logically. Most of the Primarch encounters are fresh looks back at Ullanor and Nikaea seen from the perspective of the White Scars and the Khan in particular. Very refreshingly there is only one Primarch on Primarch combat and it is very well handled, tense, balanced and believable. All of these scenes by Wraight contrast very well with Abnett's versions.

The novel purports to be the story of 2 recent inductees into the White Scars, each with quite different start points. Through their eyes we see the nature of this Legion which has been left in the sidelines of the story so far. Wraight uses this to his advantage. The White Scars prefer to be on the frontier, exercising freedom and away from the politics of the centre. They do not wish to be rulers, that is the way of growing fat and cowardly. They relish speed and unpredictability, not even their fellow Legions appreciate their skills as few have seen them. But there is a duality here - they also feel hurt they are not better liked or appreciated. But also this suspicion of kingship leads them to doubt the virtue of an Emperor who is not out Crusading but hiding behind his walls back on Terra.

The story then grows to point of view of these 2 White Scars when they are more senior, as well as drawing in the Stormseer Yesugei, the Khan himself and a Terran administrator posted to make the White Scars become more 'efficient.' Through these varying perspectives we see the White Scars anew, Space Marines who appreciate being Space Marines - they laugh when fighting and seem happy most of the time which is quite refreshing compared to some of the more sombre Legions. The White Scars as a Legion have character and it is well told, we have at last escaped from the execrable 'Hunt For Voldorius' where Andy Hoare inflicted a travesty on the White Scars and everything else he touched in that book.

We also see the more tragic elements of the Heresy. The Khan is closest to Magnus and is very suspicious of Russ. The Khan, like Magnus and Sanguinius, was pro-Librarius and felt humiliated at Nikaea. Out on the edges with false stories being promulgated the Khan has tough choices to make. The subtitle of the book - 'A Legion Divided' tells you that other forces are at work and that it is not his choice alone to make.

Wraight has covered the Space Wolves well before in both 'Battle Of The Fang' and 'Blood Of Asaheim.' He continues to do them proud here and Russ in battle is formidable. Again this reminds us just how badly executed the Guilliman in battle portrayal in 'Unremembered Empire' was by Abnett in the preceding novel.

At last we now see the White Scars meet the Alpha Legion and this key encounter from canon is covered well. Looking back over the novel I can see that Wraight somehow managed to not make a total tangle of so many threads and even managed to weave in some Salamanders and an Iron Hands Space Marine (and he knows that Chapter well too). The second half of the book picks up in pace and has some great action scenes.

Having had chance to think back over this novel in the long period since it was released in the UK in GW shops I think Wraight relied too heavily on Mongolian/ Tibetan culture just a little too heavily (the dialogue in particular strays into stereotype) and missed a chance to take its themes and apply them more subtly. However, I found it particularly shocking how it took a new writer to bring the quality of the series back up, especially after following Abnett who was once a great author. Wraight has talent and it is good to see new light being shone on the Heresy and new insights being made once more after a long lull.

The Heresy That Was, the Heresy That Should Be 9. Mai 2014
Von Corey B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Wraight has done an absolutely stellar job with his books following the Rout, and his handling of the White Scars here, probably the least-regarded of the Legions, is done just as well. There are enough cues to link the Scars back to their Asiatic roots without being overly heavy-handed about it (as another reviewer mentioned, losing the verbal tics would have made it a bit cleaner - although it did lead to an unexpected laugh during the first meeting of the Scars and the Salamander/Iron Hands company). The story in the book is complex without being byzantine, and covers more than I expected it to: the Scars, the Rout, the Alpha Legion, Salamanders and Thousand Sons all find some mention in this book without stepping on each others' toes, and there's still room left some some rather epic battles.

As Wraight has done a great job keeping the Rout from being simple, smelly, mead-swilling brutes, he turns the Scars into a rather unique Legion, and even goes into some small detail on the Khan's support of Magnus, and the Librarius - which always seemed an interesting, if confusing, footnote in the history of the Heresy.

The past few Heresy books have been rather weak for the most part (Unremembered Empire probably being the weakest of the lot, while I liked Angel Exterminatus for the exploration of Perturabo's character), but Scars quite easily snaps the lethargy the series has become mired in and recalls the scale of the early Heresy books - it's much more Space Marines and much less Spehss Mahreens.

Excellent - A Real Page-Turner 16. Mai 2014
Von Anonymous 384 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Scars is author Chris Wraight's first full entry in the Horus Heresy series, and is, to say the least, an impressive novel. Wraight weaves a complex yarn filled with substantial characters and a compelling plot. Up to this point, the Horus Heresy series had told us precious little of the White Scars, giving only a brief glimpse in Wraight's succinct 'Brotherhood of the Storm' novella. In Scars, Wraight gives deep identity to that legion, investing it with more distinct character than perhaps any legion examined in the series thus far. The enigmatic Khan, Primarch of the White Scars, is given equal, enigmatic depth, as are the other main characters of the novel. As if this weren't enough, the novel also features appearances from, and more insight into, several other Primarchs from both sides of the conflict. More, it revisits certain events in the years prior to the Heresy, gifting the reader with a greater understanding of the roots of that affair, and also broaches certain heretofore unknown politics within the Traitor forces, who are perhaps not quite as united in their purpose as they have seemed.

All told, Scars is an engrossing novel: wide in scope, rich of plot and characters, and possessing abundant insights into the universe of the Horus Heresy. More than any fiction I've read in years, I found it difficult to put down, finished it in short order, and was sad to see it end. It is truly one of the best books of the series so far, and the author deserves praise for his skill and effort.

5/5.

About the « missing » Legion, and much more… 19. Mai 2014
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Volume 28 of the Horus Heresy “saga” is about the Legion of the White Scars and their Primarch, Jaghatai Khan. Both are loosely based on the Mongols, with one of Gengis Khan’s descendants in fact bearing the very same name. With this book on the White Scars, about which very little had been mentioned and written in previous Horus Heresy books, one can hope that, at last, the series will move forward.

This is perhaps my main gripe with this volume and I will get it out of the way to concentrate on the book’s qualities. I liked it rather a lot, but the story still does not move forward. It still begins with the Khan receiving conflicting messages about the Emperor having let Russ and his Wolves loose against Magnus and his Thousand Sons and about Horus having betrayed and massacred three legions at Isstvan V (yes, again!).

Other bits and pieces can also feel as “déjà vu”. You get a few Salamander survivors and one Iron Hand (similar to the Unremembered Empire). There is also yet another confrontation and duel between two Primarchs, but not the same ones as in previous volumes and the Legion of the White Scars is also subject to subversion and divided.

There is however more to it than just a rehash and recycling of old ploys, and the book is about more than just the White Scars. As another reviewer had notes, the Space Wolves and their Primarch get quite a bit of attention, perhaps because the author, who also wrote the rather superb Battle of the Fang, has a soft spot for them (he is not the only one, by the way!).

There is also a lot on the interactions between the Primarchs (or at least some of them) and their father, all of which are seen through the memories of the Khan (another old ploy, but which still works well). Without spoiling the plot, the least that can be said is that they do not exactly form a “happy family” and that each of the “boys” has his flaws, however superb he might be as a warlord. This is perhaps another strongpoint of the book. While the Primarchs are clearly superhuman, they are also imperfect and very much afflicted with human emotions and character features such as envy, jealousy, passion, sense of duty but also cruelty, deviousness and so on…

Another interesting feature, although also “déjà vu”, is to show the ambivalence of the Emperor and portray him as an ambiguous character, some sort of benevolent tyrant, although he does not appear at all in this volume. To this are added interesting glimpses of the ever loyal Malcador the Sigillite, of the dutiful Rogal Dorn and of the implacable Constantin Valdor, Head of the Emperor’s Legio Custodes (his bodyguards).

Then we get to the Khan himself and his Legion. Here again, I found their story well told, with just enough glimpses into their history to allow you to understand what made them what they are. The book’s prologue, which shows how two legionaries, one from Terra and one from Chogodis, the Khan “home planet”, join the White Scars is a nice touch that alloys for the display of some of the Legion’s characteristics: its sense of honour and loyalty, and the cult that they have for speed and hunting. The personality of the Khan himself is rather nicely drawn, with its strengths including his overbearing sense of loyalty and code of honour, and its hidden weakness. Both he and his Legion are traditionally underrated and disregarded by most of the other Legions and Primarchs, and they have deliberately kept their distances from them most of the time.

Finally, the book includes various engagements and battles. I found at least one of the void battles excellent and very impressive where the Scars really show their mettle and totally surprise their adversaries. In most cases, however, the engagements are largely indecisive, as if the opponents were somewhat hesitant or reluctant to fight each other to the finish. The least credible of all was the duel between two Primarchs, despite being also impressive. After crossing a huge distance to reach the place where he can confront his brother, he breaks off in the middle of the fight, gets back to his ships which are under attack and essentially runs away.

For me, this one was just about worth four stars because, despite my quibbles, I found it good and rather exciting. It was not, however, as good as the battle of the Fang, although you will find the young Bjorn in this volume, centuries and millennia before he becomes the memory of the Wolves.
A solid read and exciting push for the HH series! 14. Juni 2014
Von The Mad Hatter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I really enjoyed this book. Even more so coming off the extremely disappointing Unremembered Empire. This next HH installment came out firing and was a constant thrill ride all the way to the end. Mr. Wraight does an excellent job in introducing the White Scars to the series entirely as well as providing depth into their organization structure, philosophy, and mentality as they are drawn in to the Heresy. Having them come in "Neutral" was a great change of pace against the tidal wave of good versus evil. A Legion seeking the truth for once does it honorably and with enough intrigue to make this Legion evolve into one of the best.

**Spoilers**

- Especially interesting is the discussion between Jaghatai and Magnus (what is left of him anyway). An opening of the eyes moment between brothers that was well played out. It was a bit strange that Magnus both praises and condemns Russ for what happened though. It paints a slightly different picture about why Magnus would even participate in the Battle of the Fang.

- Yesugei is one of those characters that I hope has a very promising future. Even away from his Legion his impact is about as great as the Khagan himself. Again another fantastical structure of a Legion where it was not centered on only a Primarch. Now add in that he is a Librarian and very powerful this makes him one to watch in the events to come.

- The event between the Scars and Wolves plays out a lot differently than Games Workshop has said over the years (not that GW has been very consistent anyways). Hopefully there is a second part to their event in the series. I very much hope to see the Scars and Wolves tear into the same enemy as allies and true brothers.

- The possible introduction of White Scars Warbands? Imagine the stories to come from these kill teams!!

- Ship to ship synchronization defining a perfection for mobile warfare was something that expanded on the high discipline of the Scars. To elevate this Legion to naval warfare was an excellent move by Mr. Wraight.

- The Wolves now deep in thought (and disgust) about being unleashed on their brother legion was impactful. Russ has to live with being deceived and could this be the beginning of the change of the Vlyka Fenryka to the Space Wolves we know today?

- The only bumps in the novel was the sudden escape of the Traitor Legion whereas we are already told that Scars pursue their enemy relentlessly while having the fastest ships of all the Astartes Legions and the Space Wolves being so easily outmaneuvered by their attackers.

The future of the White Scars being on Terra for the final battle is finally in motion and I am very excited to see them do their part in the most important fight of the Imperium.
