Review ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Dan Abnett

The Unremembered Empire ✓ Believing Terra has already fallen to the Warmaster Primarch Roboute Guilliman founds the Imperium SecundusThe unthinkable has happened – Terra has fallen to the traitor forces of Warmaster Horus Nothing else could explain the sudden disappeara. The Review “The Unremembered Empire explains why Dan Abnett is one of the best Black Library writers out there at the moment and uite possibly the best It’s explosive action packed and a very awesome read indeed despite any flaws it may have” Bane of Kings The Founding Fields Far out on the Eastern Fringe the realm of Ultramar stands alone Having weathered the Word Bearers’ attack on Calth and the subseuent Shadow Crusade against the Five Hundred Worlds the Ultramarines primarch Roboute Guilliman now draws all loyalist forces to Macragge as he contemplates a new future for mankind With the arrival of and fugitives from the war that has engulfed the rest of the galaxy all distinction between friend and foe is lost – isolated from Terra by fearsome warp storms is Guilliman making a bid for power to rival even the renegade Warmaster HorusLet’s get this started by saying that I’m a massive fan of Dan Abnett He’s my favourite Black Library author alongside Chris Wraight and Aaron Dembski Bowden and whilst he may not have a 100% track record I haven’t enjoyed his Warhammer Fantasy works or Pariah for example the amount of books that he’s put out still manages to be nothing short of impressive with a large number of double figures in the Gaunt’s Ghosts series alone and The Unremembered Empire was always going to be a must read for me especially given the fact that the Ultramarines are one of my favourite Space Marine LegionsChapters and Know No Fear currently remains my favourite Horus Heresy novel thus so far And whilst The Unremembered Empire might not uite be as good as Know No Fear it’s nonetheless pretty damn impressive easily ranking among the Top 10 books in the series so far and delivers a stunning read that features plenty of awesome Primarch actionUnrememberedEmpireHorusHeresyThe first thing to get us off the ground here will actually be what I didn’t like about The Unremembered Empire Because whilst yes I did enjoy it a lot I couldn’t help but notice a few things that I wasn’t too happy with – case in point the characters Like Scars the latest novel in the Horus Heresy series doesn’t spend a lot of time fleshing out its non Primarch characters to the extent where they can be treated as Loken or Tarvitz esue figures A couple from previous books such as Know No Fear show up true – but with the focus on multiple Primarchs Abnett overlooks the other characters to the point where I’m struggling to remember their names even though I finished this novel earlier in the weekHowever when he does get characters right he gets them right Guilliman is well and truly fleshed out as a character in this book and for all accounts and purposes he’s the main character We’ve never really had a Primarch take the role of a main character before in the Horus Heresy novels although I’m still yet to read Betrayer and whilst we’ve had them take center stage for a while The titular character of Fulgrim for example they’ve never really felt like the one main character and it’s here where that impact is really felt Guilliman is the driving force behind the narrative and he’s pulled off wonderfully wellThis book is a sort of seuel to many previous novels Threads from Nick Kyme’s Vulkan Lives as well as of course Know No Fear are picked up and expanded upon here and some are direct than others There’s plenty of page time from multiple Primarchs and if your favourite books are Primarch heavy novels then The Unremembered Empire will be perfect for you Abnett weaves an action packed and entertaining novel that will have you on the edge of your seat indeed – I finished this book in a couple of sittings something that I tend to do uite often with the recent Heresy novels Know No Fear Angel Exterminatus Fear To Tread and Vulkan Lives were finished fairly uickly for example Will you understand what happens here without having read them It’s difficult to say Probably yes – although you’re better off giving them a read through firstHowever there are a few flaws that prevent this novel from beating Know No Fear I’ve already touched on one and here are two – firstly the novel seems to be a lot rushed than past Abnett books It’s almost as if he had a word limit for this book and was trying to cram everything in within the last pages to make it all fit nicely together which was a shame as the pacing as a result felt uneven The description isn’t your usual Abnett level detail as well which makes a change but it would have been nice to see the layer of detail that the author brings to his works there But with all these flaws you’re probably thinking that The Unremembered Empire is actually a bad book and I’ve mislead you with the pull uote You would be greatly mistaken as The Unremembered Empire really shines in several casesIf you’re a fan of the Heresy then you’ll know that Abnett gets action seuences and this book is no exception There are several awesome set pieces that feature among the best battle scenes that I’ve read from Black Library’s books and they’re done so well that the book never falls into the trap of being labelled as ‘bolter porn’ There’s an even split between the action and the ‘uieter’ scenes as well as they are delivered with pretty awesome uality that enhances the overall feel of the book The first two thirds of the book are very well done as well and even though the third act may seem rushed it doesn’t do enough to drag the book down from being ‘good’ to ‘OK’ – it does weaken the overall outcome of the novel somewhat And the inter Primarch scenes are for the most part really strong and I loved just how many Primarchs Abnett was able to pull off in this novel in order to create a wonderful read When dealing with such famous characters in terms of lore there is a risk of getting them wrong – but Abnett nails the likes of Guilliman and Sanguinius very well indeedAll in all despite the issues that I had with The Unremembered Empire it remains a very strong success and I very much enjoyed it which of course explains the high Verdict It’s one of the best Ultramarine novels that we’ve been given apart from Know No Fear and is something that should please all Heresy fans The Unremembered Empire is therefore one of my favourite Black Library novels of the year and I can’t wait to see what Abnett brings to the table next Top notch stuffVERDICT 455 Review ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Dan Abnett

Dan Abnett ´ 7 Review

Dan Abnett ´ 7 Review Nce of the Astronomican’s guiding light at the heart of the Imperium or so Roboute Guilliman would believe Ever the pragmatist he has drawn all his forces to Ultramar and begun construction of the new empire known as Imperium Secundus Even with. As a brief aside before we begin I’ll freely admit I went into this in the worst of minds To the old canon of the Horus Heresy the Ultramarines involvement was over They had fought at Calth been given extended focus thanks to Lorgar and Angron’s crusade and were trapped at Macragge Beyond short stories the series should have been done with them as the reason for their later strength was that they escaped the worst of the fighting Diverting nearly the entire series to Macragge felt less like a true story development and an effort to keep the spotlight on Games Workshop’s personal mascots than let them become side lined Something not helped by the continual shilling of the legion in other novels keeping them in nothing but a superior to all lightThankfully for us Unremembered Empire proves to be anything but an excuse to try and have the Ultramarines show off again; and is an excellent novelWith the Ruinstorm created by Lorgar to isolate the five hundred worlds of Ultramar the legion finds itself unable to contact the Imperium at large Bloodied beaten but unbowed Guilliman enacts a desperate move to try and unite what’s left of any loyalist forces and prepare for the worst Terra could be gone he could be the last primarch alive and for all he knows the remnants surrounding Maccrage could be all that is left The Imperium is over The Imperium Secundus beginsTo make it clear Unremembered Empire serves as a nexus point within the Horus Heresy series With so many books tying into it many characters arriving from other stories it serves to connect many distant and unrelated tales The extremely large ensemble of figures listed in the opening pages is proof of this yet it’s not as bad a point as many would thinkUsually having so many elements introduced would lead to continuity lockout a point Angel Exterminatus suffered from with the Emperor’s Children or being extremely overstuffed yet it is handled with care The book hasn’t been written to purely suit those who read preceding tales or relying upon knowledge of them Instead they are re introduced in a manner satisfactory for the story Going in depth enough to satisfy a reader’s understanding but not letting exposition get in the way of storytelling Even minor continuity nods help to smooth this over without much emphasis being placed on them such as the re use of “Shakespire” when referring to the Great Playwright’s works Further while many characters are present the focus is kept on a small handful and uses the others as representations of the story’s core theme They become involved only when necessary as a force than as individuals and to represent a major idea within the novel Unity even in the fact of ChaosRather than being exclusively about the Ultramarines it would be accurate to say this book is about loyalists Scattered forces arrive at Macragge after Guilliman activates a desperate contingency allowing for many vessels to re emerge from the Warp around the planet Imperial Fists Raven Guard White Scars Iron Hands Salamanders Dark Angels and even one or two figures from traitor legions all make an appearance as a result all of who are treated with dignity Rather than effectively having God Mode on as we saw in Betrayer with a few hundred of Guilliman’s astartes butchering thousands of traitors with ease building better fortifications than Dorn Guilliman himself fighting Angron and Lorgar to at least a standstill and only being defeated as a result of sheer attrition these are actual Ultramarines By the book soldiers with no weaknesses but lacking many of the specialist strengths of their brothers They are just as prone to losses just as prone to death but their discipline control and strategic pragmatism is never forgotten This is especially clear when Alexis Polux outlines the flaws in Macragge’s defences which have been built to preserve the world and for open combat rather than full security No force is treated as innately superior but instead strategic differences and greater understandings are highlightedThe story as a whole gives reason as to why there would be greater unity behind Guilliman following the Heresy It really serves as a prelude to the implementation of the chapters and the scouring showing the shattered legions becoming used to following him in their efforts to defend the Imperium Secondus Each of them works as a much closely united force in small numbers and combines their strengths in ways otherwise rarely seen as divisions of legions Their willing service to Guilliman is out of mutual unity than deferring completely to him as their spiritual liegeSpeaking of Guilliman we see far into his mind than before and get a true impression of the primarch Both with his strengths and weaknesses as a leader he is shown to be an interesting figure and the book does a lot to foreshadow his future potential Not only exploring his role as a major figure within the Imperium Secundus but managing to humanise him to a great degree and showing him to be a sympathetic figure That said Abentt does go a bit far with his humanisation to the point where some of Guilliman’s superhuman elements do seem lost in comparison to other primarchs There just isn’t enough of an opportunity to truly show off some of his strengths and as a result he does feel somewhat lacking especially in comparison to a nightmarish whirlwind of death who arrives on the planetYes we’re getting onto the weaknesses now While it has a great first two thirds the final act of Unremembered Empire is weak by comparison both in the writing department and as a tie up to events Much like Priests of Mars this is very much Unremembered Empire Part One and lacks closure to its events instead seemingly relying upon seuels to finish things off Something definitely not helped with the writing uality seemingly diminishing to the point where aforementioned nightmarish figure is described as “creepy” rather than with Abnett’s usually strong descriptions Many characters feel as if they’re being driven by snark than personal backgrounds and a few frustrating bits of new canon are added at the last second Namely one major player in the story strolling in and out of the Warp without protection or defences of any kindWhen new elements are introduced in this final act they feel rushed or underdeveloped as a result Lacking in both emphasis and build up and almost feeling lazy in execution when they are implemented as a last second development While there are only one or two of these thankfully the arrival of one major character the book advertises and the use of a prominent device in a new way both feel underwhelming A major disappointment given how streamlined and well executed many previous elements were in spite of the book’s heavy continuity with other sources Further the blurb on the back of the book does lie as a major uestion it asks is dealt with very early on removing an interesting possibility which could have been exploredFor all its problems Unremembered Empire is a definite success It’s one of the best books to involve the Ultramarines in recent years and even given a problematic ending still manages to be entertaining If you have enjoyed the series thus far and are willing to accept a troubled conclusion it’s still a must buy It serves as an excellent seuel to Know No Fear and is definitely a period in the Heresy which needs to be expanded upon alongside the war outside Ultramar
