More to follow3 About lore Even narrative at BL site says that 'It is the thirty second millennium and the Imperium is at peace The Traitor Legions of Chaos are but a distant memory and the many alien races that have long plagued mankind are held in check by the Space Marines' Guess what mister Abnett get it all wrong again By standard lore everyone knows that ca M32 All Loyalist Primarchs feared Dead or Lost; and that Dan gets true The problem is he is writing that 'The Great Archenemy haven't been seen in millennias' But ahem what about First Black Crusade??? In 781M31? The Beast happens in 544M32 long past the First Black Crusade and returning of Chaos? And 'Death' of Rogal Dorn 4 Characters of this novel some of the are amazing but generally they all blank and totally incompetent The level of incompetence shown by the High Lords of Terra is so unbelievable that reader should ask Dan Abnett how the feth they were allowed to become the High Lords Where the Inuisition was looking? All in all inuisition in this novel are the most 'trivial' service in all the Imperium Plus the ending let's not tell the one person who can help what's going on make him a rogue element send assassin schooled by assassins to kill the assassin who previously was schooled by the assassin who made the assassin assassin OMG But that's actually what happens in the end5 Yeah let's get back to the characters one of the greatest achievement of Dan Abnett in every book Then mister Abnett is writing about the High Lords of Terra and all their machinations he is beyond reproach The characters are alive and truly real Real humans with each independent and amazing personalityBut then he is writing about SM well here it's not rainbows on the horizon Dan's SM this time it's a bad omen to be an Imperial Fist is a blank and wooden characters who had exactly had due to the obvious reasons no emotions Actually I would be truthful that is the most uninspired craving depiction of Space Marines in all the Dan's writing history 6 The story itself is like a direct staging point that it actually is but half of the decisions made by the main and additional characters in this novel are very let's say illogical 7 The general writing style is less interesting than any novel written by Abnett to date And that says something The level of uality Abnett's 'writing' usually provides is just absent here If I haven't known that it was 'actually' written by Abnett I would have guessed that it was written by any other BL writerPlus the depiction of events has a level of being chopped just as the author starts explaining themI give that novel 3 of 5 stars and only because it's a start of something biggerBut sadly from the point of Dan Abnett's Black Library novels that's his worst novel to date

TEXT ß I Am Slaughter Ð Dan Abnett

I Am SlaughterRies from Black Library It's a brand new story set in an unexplored era of Imperial history and as well as showing the entire Imperial Fists chapter in action against an ork invasion of staggering scale it gives us a look at Terra itself the machinations of the High Lords and the start of the Imperium's slide into the dystopian horror we all know and love Also did we mention orks? Lots of orks Seriously so many orks You can read the full review over at my blog span of lore material that any novel or a series for that matter that is set in the vibrant chaos of the Warhammer 40000 can cover is immense There is a history of millenniums involved and Black Library has done a tireless and amazing job over the years of covering as much material as it can whether we go back to the earliest days of the setting with the Horus Heresy mega series or the carefully planned and executed vignettes set in the 41st Millennium The wonderful diversity at its heart is what makes all of this tick for me and in that respect the latest series from the publisher has not disappointedI Am Slaughter is the first novel in the Beast Arises series and is written by a veteran of the setting entire Dan Abnett Over the years he has given some of the best work in 40K and I Am Slaughter is no slouch by any means The story begins with the Imperial Fists Space Marines engaging in a massive planetary attack against a verminous xenos species and it ends in rather surprising ways As this is the start of the series much is left to the reader’s imagination but Abnett teases enough to keep you hooked and reading all the way through though there are some rather typical missteps by the masterDespite being one of the most prominent of the Space Marine Chapters as they’ve been around since the founding of the Imperium the Imperial Fists have rarely gotten a platform anywhere near the size of what some of the other major Chapters such as the Ultramarines and the Dark Angels and the Space Wolves have had And usually they are the butt of a cruel joke as they seem to always die in droves Coincidentally Dan Abnett killed an entire company of Fists in the animated Warhammer 40000 movie Ultramarines which came out in 2010 It was a rather sad affair for the Fists and it does indeed sadden that they seem to get burdened with such a fate often than any other Chapter I Am Slaughter is no differentThe story starts some 2400 years after the Horus Heresy has ended and relative peace has settled across the Imperium The horrors of that disastrous conflict are a distant memory and the Imperium prospers even as vast wars are waged to keep it safe But there is always some trouble that is than it seems This is where the Imperial Fists come in as they deploy to a system six warp weeks from Terra to eradicate a verminous xenos species called the Chromes The celebrated defenders of Terra deploy en masse almost at full chapter strength to prove to the Imperium at large that there are some wars that only they can prosecute A political maneuver in many ways since the power of the Space Marines is waning in these troubled times And this is when disaster strikes and the Beast ArisesThe one aspect of I Am Slaughter that I really liked was that we finally got to see the machinations of the High Lords of Terra In the wake of the Horus Heresy it was the High Lords who came to wield actual power in the Imperium representing the most senior of all the institutions of united Mankind such as the Officio Assassinorum the Imperial Guard the Navy the Navigators the Inuisition and many others twelve in all And they’ve always been a rather distant presence in the 41st millennium The closest we came to see them IIRC was in Bill King’s fourth Space Wolves novel Wolfblade and that proved to be one hell of a tease
