Another outstanding novel around the Dark Angels, and their secretive attitude towards themselves as well as outsiders. in this second novel of the legacy of caliban series, the dark angels try to tie up loose ends, while at the same time managing mistrust and conspiracy within their own ranks. the book highlights even more the very fact that the chapter cannot be considered whole and united, but rather being composed of several minor factions.

the novel is well written, just as expected, and builds up a climax and atmosphere that are suitable to support the idea of the story. the only aspect that bothers a little bit are the tendencies of the Dark Angels to use medieval terminology to refer to their equipment.

HASH(0x9e9140a8) von 5 Sternen Great Read! 24. April 2015

I enjoy the authors writing style and have read many of his books. This one I was waiting for and it did not disappoint. Clearly if you want to pick this books up for the first time make sure you ready Book 1 first. It sets the stage for this one.

Gav Thorpe is either hit or miss with me. Some of his books are great and then others are flat. This is one of the better ones. I have always liked the secret conspiracy behind the Dark Angles and this book really brings that to light. It ends on a cliff hanger, but still a good read.

HASH(0x9ef8b24c) von 5 Sternen Partly good but mostly implausible 21. Juli 2014
Von JPS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I read this book several weeks ago, but waited a bit before posting a review because I wanted to avoid overreactions. As another reviewer has noted, this is the second book in the Legacy of Caliban series - Ravenwing is the first and The Unforgiven will be the third. IT is also linked with to the Purging of Kadillus to the extent that the some of the events take place some 15 years later in the same systems.

Unfortunately, I had the same kind of issues that I had encountered with the previous title of the series: it is largely implausible. As mentioned in my review of the previous episode, it is rather difficult to believe that it would be possible to keep secrets within the Chapter for thousands of years and to tell lies – or at best half-truths – to the vast majority of brothers without anyone asking questions. Granted, the Dark Angels are trained to be disciplined believers, or even fanatics for some of them, but keeping this “big secret” for so long stretches credulity.

I also had similar problems with the plot and with one of the main characters – Interrogator-Chaplain Asmodai (the “Master of Repentance” or “Chief Torturer”, if you prefer) – in particular, who comes across as a bit of a caricature. Every time tensions build, he seems to “lose it” and overreacts with extreme violence, including the hasty execution of one Librarian. Throughout the book, he seems mainly interested in undermining and contradicting his direct boss, the High Interrogator Sapphon. The most extraordinary thing coming from an Order where discipline and self-control is presented as so important for this Chapter is that he gets away with it and only receives, at best, a (figurative) slap on the wrist.

Also difficult to believe is the behaviour of Master Belial, Commander of the First Company, with one of his new recruits. While it is understandable that he would want to put back in his place the cocky young recruit, the way in which this is done exhibits a mixture of arrogance and bullying that made me wonder whether he was even suitable for command, whatever his brilliant performances in the field.

The key topic here again is the hunt for the Fallen – the Space Marines that turned against their Primarch and managed to survive the destruction of Caliban. Here it was a pity that the author did not choose to tell us a bit more about the various individuals. For instance, we are told very little about Astelan himself, apart from the fact that he was already a high ranking Dark Angel at the time of the Horus Heresy and seems to have given the order to open fire on the Primarch’s fleet at the time. We are also next to nothing about Lord Cypher, although he is the main prize that the Dark Angels have been supposedly hunting throughout the galaxy for thousands of years.

Again (that is just like in the previous episode), some of the ideas in the book were interesting. This was particularly the case of the assault on Tharsis presumably directed by one of the Fallen but in fact masterminded by one of the most talented warlords of the Horus Heresy and using patterns and battle tactics that the 40K Space Marines seem to have forgotten. Unfortunately, and for me at least, this, and a couple of other features, were not enough to save the book. Two stars.

The ending was amazing. Pity the beginning of the next book ret-coned it a bit.
