An Ork moon is orbiting Terra and the High Lords are unable to stop it So the Imperial Fists and their successor chapters return to Earth to save it and destroy the MoonWith the help of the Mechanicus Mars they attack the Moon but can it be stoppedA great fast paced pulp fiction from the 31st Millennium set in Games Workshop s 40k universe You do need to have read the previous books and it does lead into the next one so likely one for those wanting to know about the history of the dystopian galaxy A satisfying continuation of the impressive Beast arises arcWhilst there is nothing horrendous nor indeed tedious about You know what This is a really good bookThe Beast Arises series has in my humble opinion struggled to live up to the standard set by Dan Abnett in I Am Slaughter but this one really does come close The problem with this series at times is that it features so many character perspectives it s hard to keep up sometimes Whilst it is true that there are still a number of different perspectives in this one no less than previous books in fact it seemed a little asier to keep up with what was happening I think that was because they were less spread out that it was Ex On The Beach easier to followThis book starts to bring all those perspectives together and the threads start to make sense you begin to get an idea of how and whyach of the characters are doing what they are That brings me onto the characters one of the main things that has always drawn me to the background produced by Games Workshop is the imperfect nature of their characters The blurred lines and how not Good Thinking everything is black and whitevery now and then there is a disturbing area of greyness where you feel yourself sympathising with and Death in Mumbai even rooting for someone you desperately want to hate It s not a matter of good versusvil because sometimes the good guys are just as bad if not worse than the bad guysIn terms of the action it does as Baccarat : La lgende du cristal ever take place at an incredibly frenetic pace and leaves you wondering whether certain people are going to make it The sign of a good action seuence is one that leaves you feeling breathless at thend so fast paced was it and this book just about manages that Throw in political intrigue and no small amount of suspense and you ve got yourself a very good book indeedTo summarise This is a good though not great book that manages to O Colégio de Todos os Segredos excite and keep you guessing the whole way through It s a crowd pleaser I would say plenty there for fans of the lore andnough to draw in fans no matter your preferences in terms of your favourite models Not a great deal there for people who aren t already fans of Warhammer 40 000 but then that s not really the intention of this seriesDefinitely worth four out of five stars This is book 5 in the year long March Violets (Bernie Gunther, event known as The Beast Arises In the previous book the Proletarian Crusade was pulped to death almost immediately after landing on the Ork deff star lounging above the homeworld of the Imperium of Man Even worse the Orks sent ambassadors to demand an Imperial surrender The High Lords of Terra were too worked up to give an immediate response and that s when the Eldar launched an attack on the Golden Throne itselfExcept the Eldar aren t attacking They re there to deliver a message to the Emperor who is too busy sitting immobile to care about orbiting Orks The Custodes the Emperor s bodyguards refuse to sign for delivery and all hell breaks looseKoorland returns to Terra as the newly minted chapter master of the Imperial Fists and he orders the assembled Imperial Fists successor chapters to attack the deff star Arbitrator Galatea Haas lone survivor of the Proletarian Crusade survived longnough to learn the ins n outs of the Ork construct With Haas help Koorland launches an attack on the deff star s teleportarium where the Orks are preparing the final invasion of TerraMeanwhile Marshal Magneric of the Black Templars finally corners his ancient nemy the Iron Warriors Warsmith Kalkator But Kalkator is cunning how can the Black Templars kill the Iron Warriors if they both get killed by Orks That s right realpolitik forces the Black Templars to team up with the Iron Warriors and it is SO GOOD SO FUCKING GOOD And totally plausibleLast but certainly least Drakan Vangorich s assassins are learning bits And Pieces What Fabricator pieces of what Fabricator Kubik is up to on Mars Orks can t blow up Mars if Kubik teleports the planet somewhere lse What happens to the Imperium after Kubik runs away Not his problemDespite the near infinite freedom of the Warhammer 40k universe there s so much that individual creators can t do because the lore wouldn t allow it but in this series so far removed from the 41st millennium the authors have been let loose and it shows I ve read a few of Guy Haley s short stories before but this was my first time reading one of his novels The pacing the back and forth the multiple viewpoints and the revelations combine to form unforgettable poetry When Games WorkshopBlack Library announced last year s long Warhammer 40000 Water Music event story line The Beast Arises I was pretty skeptical I wasn txactly sure how a 12 part novel series about a massive invasion by the Orks a faction that I find interesting in a force of nature sort of way but never really as compelling villains could maintain momentum and my interest The kick off novel to the series though I Am Slaughter was by Dan Abnett one of my favorite 40K and comic writers So I decided to give The Beast Arises series a shot I Am Slaughter was pretty good but I was kind of underwhelmed by book two and book three had some interesting parts Then something surprising happened with book four The Last Wall I suddenly found myself won over and invested in the conflicts and characters of The Beast Arises Revived event I m happy to report that mynthusiasm has only grown after reading book five Throneworld by Guy HaleyI was prepared not to like Throneworld because it s cover featured a member of another 40K faction I find pretty underwhelming The Eldar 40K s space lves do play sort of a large role in the opening chapters of Throneworld but they are not a huge part of the novel Haley handled them well too It was interesting seeing them running wild on the Imperium of Man s home turf of Terra and their interactions with one of the series main character s Drakan Vangorich the Grandmaster of the Imperium s office of assassins were pretty interesting Grandmaster of the Imperium s office of assassins were pretty interesting those interactions set the stage for some other compelling dynamics that could be xplored in the series second halfOne faction that does play a decent sized role in Throneworld that Haley does a pretty fantastic job with is the Adpetus Mechanicus the Machine Cult of Mars I used to have zero interest in the Mechanicum I thought they were one of the most boring factions in the world of 40K Then I read Graham McNeil s Horus Heresy novel Mechanicum and realized how interesting they could be and in Throneworld Haley further illustrated why Mars is one of the most intriguing worlds in 40K uite a bit of the action in the novel involves mystery and intrigue on the Mechanicum homeworld as an ambitious and power hungry Fabricator General advances a secret plan that might lead to victory over the Orks and civil war against the Imperium Standing in his way are several of Vangorich s agentsThe rest of the action in Throneworld involves 40k s most ubiuitous faction the Imperium s Space Marines which is fine because Haley utilizes them in fun and fascinating ways Space Marine stories need action and there s plenty of really cool intense and apocalyptic set pieces in Throneworld but like any good stories the best Space Marine tales are ones that feature strong vibrant fully realized characters There are plenty of those types of Space Marines in Throneworld The most fascinating of course is Koorland AKA Slaughter the last surviving member of the Imperial Fists Watching him rise from the tragedy that cost him his Battle Brothers and grow and change from a front line soldier into a cunning galactic hero and leader has been one of the most satisfying parts so far of Th. Book 5 of The Beast ArisesA new threat arises on Holy Terra – the ldar attacking the Imperial Palace from beneath And in the depths of space an unlikely alliance discovers a secret that might save the Imperium from the marauding orks But can they survive long nough to tell anyoneThe Imperium’s situation has never been grim – an ork attack moon hangs over Terra and ork armada. Ck Templars come to his aid and with a reuest from Mars a vast force is assembled shutting down an interesting discovery an Ork gate This is the reason the Orks stream forth in numbers beyond imagining Also the giant War Boss of the Orks is defeated though this doesn t seem to matter much in the grand scheme as it is kind of a forgotten detail in the overall story archThis book Love for Imperfect Things ends with another cliffhanger and I can t wait to see what happens next As a reader of many WH40K books this series is a strange beast in the fact that it takes place many years in the future and many things have changed in the 40K universe It is a very unusual and fresh take on the genre and so far I have been delighted to take it all inDanny Review also published here Throneworld ties with The Last Wall for my season favorite to date This is down to its high focus on Terra as the title suggests and with it all the politcs and scheming that make this series shine It also picked up a few plot points fromarlier installments that I thought had fallen by the wayside or been resolved off screenFirst off though I have to say that the cover art is somewhat misleading The Ulthw Farseer depicted may or may not appear depending on the artist s intent it does not fully match previous art of the character that did appear in the book and the Eldar s involvement in Throneworld is relatively slim if impactful full of flavor and answering some uestions I know many readers had so far Where are the Adeptus Custodes What are they doing Is nobody concerned about the Emperor s well being or whatever you d call it considering he is A Heart of Stone entombed atop his Golden Throne We get glimpses of all of these points and I was satisfied with them and the Eldar s appearanceA point of contention on fan forums has been the way the Custodes have been hit by the Worf Effect I see where they are coming from but didn t feel like it was undeserved Faced by a Harleuin Shadowseer and a Death Jester and surprised at that they didn t fare too badly and the whole scene just worked for me It highlighted the sheer arrogance and superiority complex of the Eldar magnificently and showcased how different these Custodes are from their Heresy counterparts They are isolated away from the courts of Terra only concerned with the Emperor They also felt diminished from the proud lions of war we saw in the Horus Heresy seriesIt added to the decadent feel of the Imperium at large and Terra in particular Mankind might have been at peace for long centuries but their golden age is over Things have changed significantly yet not so much as in the 41st Millennium They still pretend and delude themselves hereBesides thesearly scenes we get to see the Last Wall in action soon after the failure of the Proletarian Crusade They make to assault the Attack Moon above Terra which results in some glorious action scenes and Taking Instruction (Taboo, even the big boss himself gets his first outing since volume oneThroughout it all we see Koorland s relationship with his fellow Chapter Masters growven in unexpected ways It was a joy to read Language and Linguistics especially for the unexpected little bits strewn throughoutThe Last Wall s arrival at Terra throws the Senatorum into an uproarven scares the High Lords But all of it is played off in such a wonderful way including celebrations of the heroic Chapters and underhanded insults by the Lord Guilliman that my hatred for the High Lords has only risen further Following Chapter Masters Koorland and Thane around the celebrations and politicking watching their growing frustration with the High Lords and the whole situation was impressive and I had various scenes play inside my head for a while These scenes on Terra are the strongest parts of the High Lords plotlines so far They set the tone for Divertimento escalations to come and confront the sons of Dorn with the harsh reality of not only having to confront the Orks but also Terra itselfMeanwhile the situation on Marsscalates at last with the Red Haven cell of assassins deplayed multiple books ago coming into action I loved the infiltration scenes and the techno cruelty of the Adeptus Mechanicus This plotline will be Love Is a Fairy Tale exploding soon and I thought the author did a great job spreading oil all over the red sands of MarsThe other big plotline focuses on Warsmith Kalkator of the Iron Warriors who was introduced in The Last Wall and will seemingly feature in future books as well Last time he was facing the Orks while being hounded by the Black Templars These Templars finallynter the stage personally led
by Dreadnought Marshal Magneric Magneric has a history with Kalkator and indeed his whole Crusade comes down to havingDreadnought Marshal Magneric Magneric has a history with Kalkator and indeed his whole Crusade comes down to having friends with the Warsmith until the outbreak of the Heresy As the indeed his whole Crusade comes down to having friends with the Warsmith until the outbreak of the Heresy As the blurb already spoiled the two factions Iron Warriors and Black Templars are forced to ally temporarily to fend off the Orks and avoid destruction I saw a lot of outcry about this one Promise at Dawn even before the book was released solely on the basis of how the marketing department over at Black Library tried to shock people into picking the book upThings aren t as straightforward as one might think here It is an alliance of circumstance and necessity uneasy to the very core and only held together by the Iron Warriors survival instincts and the honor of the Templars The relationship between the two leaders also plays a big part and we get to see them trading verbal blows all throughoutIn fact these debates are the highlight of this string ofvents They argue about the nature of the Emperor man or god the Black Templars adoption of the Imperial Creed while throwing away the Imperial Truth Kalkator ven draws parallels to Lorgar s chastisement by the Emperor see The First Heretic while Magneric uickly becomes invested in trying to save Kalkator from the abyss of treachery or at least his soul by repenting and converting to the Templars faithIt presents the iron hard pragmatism of the Iron Warriors mbodied by Kalkator facing off against the powerful faith of the crusading sons of Sigismund On top of that we ven get to see how their fanaticism and faith can impact the flow of battle One of my favorite uotes from the book is the following I am not going to convert to your pathetic creed Magneric For if uotes from the book is the following I am not going to convert to your pathetic creed Magneric For if cannot trust a man who lies I trust a god who does so ven less It does a fantastic job highlighting the Emperor s paradox and the hypocrisy of the Imperial Creed which is once again mirrored by Ecclesiarch Mesring back on Terra His role in future novels will be interesting to follow indeedBut at the The Right Sort of Man (Sparks Bainbridge Mystery end of it all Haley s passion for the Black Templars is showing After reading his Space Marine Battles stories about them soon to be collected in Crusaders of Dorn I wasxpecting no less from him There are subtle differences between both Darkmere eras Black Templars but they both share the fanaticism and faith that they are known for It was also cool to see Haley giving the spotlight to a Dreadnought once again after the glorious audio drama The Glorious Tomb which isasily one of my favorite audios produced by Black Library to date What I m saying is He s got the subject matter down really well by now and was the logical choice for this plotline The Beast Arises is at a very high point as of this installment Events are in full motion and allegiances are shifting There are many clues as to the future but for the time being I am happy with the present depicted in Throneworld It is another stellar Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? entry in the series and prepares the series for the next big boom Oh man Throneworld Guy Haley rocks his way into The Beast Arises series with a monumental bang The story was utterly fantastic Guy Haley masterfully picks up the strands where other authors have left off and runs with it The novel opens with the Eldar the insanelyxciting cliff hanger of book 4 and things get moving very uickly This part of the novel was definitely one of the best following the troupe of Eldar Harleuins as they tore through Terra to reach the Golden Throne Guy did a fantastic job at capturing their wistfulness and arrogance as well as their very fluid and alien combat An. N almost impossible task taking news of this discovery back to Terra through a galaxy teeming with orksMysteries abound as the ldar make their presence felt in the midst of humanity's war for survival And fans of the Imperial Fists and Iron Warriors will be thrilled – or appalled – to see rivalries sort of put aside as loyalists and traitors work together against their common ,
E Beast Arises In Throneworld you get to see Koorland kick ass and continue to grow as he leads The Last Wall an army of different Space Marine legions descended from the Imperial Fists into battle against an Ork Attack Moon I ll never get tired of typing the words Attack Moon So cool and imaginative and deals with the treachery and machinations of the people in charge of the very world he s trying to defend The Lords of Terra My favorite parts of Throneworld though had to deal with some Space Marines new to the larger action of The Beast Arises the Imperium aligned warriors of the fanatical Black Templars legion and the Traitor Legion known as the Iron Warriors Part of the reasons I find Space Marine Legions so fascinating is ach Legion has it s own cultures and customs I have not read much about the Black Templars and in Throneworld Haley shows off their best and worst traits The Iron Warriors are allowed to be Scraps Of The Untainted Sky eually nuanced as well You don t forget they betrayed humanity and the Emperor but their main representative in the book is allowed to be both articulate in his reasons and charismaticKalkator the Iron Warriors leader is a fun and interesting character So is Magneric the relentless Black Templar High Marshall and cybernetic Dreadnought that is leading a force to hunt down and destroy Kalkator and his grand company of Iron Warriors Their scenes together are fascinating because of their dynamic as both hunter and hunted and former friends Plus you get to see what happens to that dynamic when it s confronted by the savage monstrosity of the Orks I hope to see of Kalkator Magneric and their respective Legions in future installments of The Beast Arises So with Throneworld my investment andxcitement over The Beast Arises series has grown I look forward to reading the next The Eric Carle Gift Set entry in the series and books by Guy Haley I believe this is my first book I ve read of his and I can t wait to read his return to The Beast Arises with The Beheading The final book in the series and Dark Imperium which moves the timeline of 40K forward in some directions that soundxciting You can read the full review over at my blog galaxy wide Ork invasion that heralds the rebuilding of their lost Huguenot Prophecy and Clandestine Worship in the Eighteenth Century empire on anven greater scale yet Political bureaucracy and infighting that paralyses the Imperial response Secret and possibly traitorous Fashion Design Course experiments being carried out by the Cult Mechanics Terra itself directly threatened A Chapter lost Entire sectors lost Possible Chaos interference The Beast Arises series has it all it seems The previous four novels have been rather revolutionary in many ways and as the story progresses there s always another big twist just around the cornerWith Guy Haley s Throneworld the series marks the third straight novel which is among some of the best works to come out of Black Library in the past five years I ve read a fair number of novels from Guy Haley and he s always impressed me with his narrative styles and his plot twists That all holds true for Throneworld as well in which we see the Eldar themselves getting involved with the Ork Imperium conflictven as the larger narrative progresses well beyond the weirdness happening on Terra for the stalwart sons of Dorn have managed to consolidate their power and beginning anew their campaign against the OrksNote Some major spoilers from the previous novels and this novel are mentioned hereIn David Annandale s The Last Wall we see something rather shocking when some Ork ambassadors visit Terra from the attack moon that is besieging the capital world of the Imperium That in itself was incredibly shocking but of course the writers just didn t leave it at that did they And with the whole Proletarian Crusade that happened in the middle of the novel itself a high risk high reward gambit that failed this was just the Orks rubbing the collective Imperium s incredible bad luck in its face At the nd of the novel we saw that following the visit from the Ork ambassadors an Eldar strike force penetrates the crumbling defenses around Terra and straight into the Imperial Palace All of which sets the stage for some fantastic moments in Guy Haley s Throneworld which is a knocker in the same league as Gav Thorpe s The Emperor ExpectsWe know from the pages of the Horus Heresy novels that Farseer Eldrad Ulthran of the Eldar Craftworld Ulthwe is a psychic contemporary of the Emperor himself And that the Eldar tried numerous times before the Heresy unfolded to stop it in its nascency and that they failed utterly So fifteen hundred years on what stop it in its nascency and that they failed utterly So fifteen hundred years on what really left for them to do That is one of the main uestions that Guy attempts to answer in this novel and I think he provides the foundation of some solid responses to those when Eldrad sends a troupe of Harleuins the Eldar version of traveling monks who are peerless warrior mystics as well to the Imperial throneworldThe ntry of the Eldar into the conflict had me really Alternatives Chapter 2 (The Chronos Files; The Shattered Saga excited They ve always been one of the interesting xenos species within the Warhammer universe and I alwaysnjoy reading about them On that front the narrative that Guy set up was a bit of a disappointment since the Eldar don t do anything too significant as Cincinnati and Other Plays events unfold However he does give us some downright fascinating action scenes as the Harleuins go up against the Imperial Palace s defense troops thelite Lucifer Blacks and Speak Out! even the Adeptus Custodes who are the personal defenders of the Emperor himself That part was just mind blowing to me All throughout the series this has been a uestion that has really nagged at me what are the Custodes doing in this conflict This all too brief look at them did a lot to assuage those concerns and only made me wish to see What I also loved about all of this was how this side plot intersects with the side plot involving Inuisitors Wienand and Veritus who are currently fighting amongst themselves to prove their own philosophies the superior of the other At this point in time the Inuisition operates as a grand monolothicntity without the specialization of roles it has adopted by M41 so this conflict between the two Inuisition agents makes sense and the coalescing of their different perspectives is something that I was reading very intently We are still very I Like You the Best early in the history of the Imperium at a time when much of what we see finally in M41 comes into being and that s one of the strengths of both the series in general and Throneworld in specific Closer to 35 stars in my opinionOverall Injoyed this novel The deeper intrigue of the politics of Terra and the Space Marine Chapters that make up the Last Wall were The collectors encyclopedia of antique marbles enjoyable The space battles were awesome The land battles and boarding actions were awesome as well And seeing the Officio Assassinorum plot thread starting to reveal itself was good stuff Ispecially like the scenes of the infiltration of the Eldar and the Harleuin attempt to breakthrough the Imperial Guard and Adeptus Custodes into the inner sanctum of the Emperor to deliver their message But minor spoiler herein lies the weakest part of the novel This message seemed too generic to justify the presence of the Eldar in the book not to mention the vanuishing of the The Philosophy of Giambattista Vico entire Harleuin troupe sent to deliver it Maybe if the message had significant meaning like insight into stopping the Ork threat then I could see the justification for thextreme means to deliver it Perhaps there will be to the message in a future book in the series but at the time of this review I saw it only as a way to have the EldarHarleuins and Custodes play a role in the story and describe their awesomeness but little lse I read this in one sitting and it was a good addition to The Beast Arises series I am not uite sure how many there are in this series but this one was as good as the better ones in the set so far The Ork moon still menaces the Earth and the dissembling and chaos from the High
