James Swallow: Nemesis By James Swallow



If Horus does surviveI give this book 4 neural shredders to the brain pain out of 5 I would give it 45 there was a few times I struggled with some of the ideas being espoused by some of the characters that didn t seem to fit what we know of them It started off slow for me but really picked up before the midway point So give it a chance When I first started reading the mainline Horus Heresy novels with Horus Rising I ad only the most rudimentary knowledge of Warhammer 30k40k lore Some of the foreshadowing of those early books was lost on me because I wasn t intimately familiar with the setting but on the other How to Negotiate Your First Job hand I was able to be surprised by revelations character arcs etc because I didn t already know what was going toappenWith Nemesis even my rudimentary knowledge of the setting was enough to spoil the ending Heck even knowing that there are books in the series beyond this is enough to spoil the ending That would be fine if some interesting macro level developments appened in the background the macro world building parts are often the most interesting anyway but there wasn t much of that either That said I think this was one of the better written entries in the series and I could see it appealing to a wider audience than much of the Horus Heresy does of note this book managed to crack the NYT Bestseller list Focusing on expertly trained umans rather than superhuman Astartes allows for a sort of middle ground where you get to follow characters that are emotionally relatable well some of them while still getting to see them do cool stuffIt was a bit overlong and not that noteworthy in the grand scheme of the series but it was well written and enjoyable Additionally the last post climax chapter Perfect Justice (Ben Kencaid, has some clever things to say about the setting written with subtlety than you often see in licensed fiction I ve recently finished the latest Horus Heresy novel by James Swallow writer of Flight of the Eisenstein another fantastic part of the series a good read really enjoyed the characters and storyline I find that it could uite of easily been a stand alone book and felt that it didn t really contribute much to the entire story arc whilstaving a few minor items that affect the entire story it could uite easily of been a normal Warhammer 40000 book rather than part of the Horus Heresy I felt that i wasn t disappointed with the characters deaths and actually expected them all the way through and unlike in other The Literary Relationship of Lord Byron and Thomas Moore heresy books found that. It's even begun But what they cannot know is that another assassin is abroad already withis sights firmly set on killing the Emperor.

The Warhamer 40K genre mash up alooza continues with the awesome little novel that starts out sorta like a gritty whodunnit murder mystery before reminding itself that it is in fact a Warhammer 40K novel and goes back to blowing up planets and shit Yeah gone are the Astartes super Suggestions for Marketing Small Timber human soldiers though and in is a small group ofighly trained assassins New Exploration hunting Horus Lupercal and who are in turn beingunted themselves by something way crazy A couple surprises a couple remember the Alamo moments and ton of fun Nemesis continues what is already an amazing series Finally At the very end of 2018 being up to date with the Horus Heresy franchise I decided to go back to the book I skipped ages ago to Nemesis I The Shaping of Western Civilization heard that this story does not bring much to the main plot which was the primal reason for the delay Another reason was my lack of interest in the Officio Assassinorum which now definitely raised tremendously This started slowly reminded me of another Swallow s work Flight of Eisenstein It took forever to get me fully engaged but ended up rather interesting and entertaining I started several times and I went through with it only on my third try Unfortunately this means that this tale is not immediately attractive to the reader but it gets better The variety of characters is uite pleasing secondalf of the book kept me very engaged and brought me a lot of knowledge and new understanding of the differences between the assassin temples The ending was not disappointing as well I am glad I took my time to finally read Nemesis and I believe the Horus Heresy knowledge I possess now made the experience enjoyable Is it skippable Yes Should you skip it Probably not It s worth a read Read the 13th book in the Horus Heresy series in the Black Library suggested reading order I really thought I would enjoy this one a great deal being that it focuses on the Assassin Clades of the Warhammer 3040k universe It ended up not being as gripping or enjoyable as I thought it would be I m not sure exactly why perhaps the characters weren t recognizable or likable perhaps the pacing wasn t so great But ey it was still way better than Battle for the Abyss A solid if not spectacular addition to the Horus Heresy series Nemesis is still an entertaining read with further insights into the WH40K universe The story follows two different perspectives that of a group of Imperial assassins sent to kill Horus and also an opposing assassin sent to kill the Emperor Th. After the orrors of Istvaan V Horus declares outright war against the Imperium In the shadows of the Emperor's Palace powerful figure.

E imperial assassins storyline is fairly standard fair as the team is assembled one of each type of killer being introduced in series adding two types of assassin not seen in the tabletop game and proceeding with their mission The interweaving story of the dark assassin as The Ecology, Exploitation and Conservation of River Turtles he worksis way toward Medicine and Religion his objective is interesting but problematic in fluff termse is a pariah bonded with a warp creature and I thought pariah s were anathema to anything from the warp but that s just me being a Warhammer geekFor fans of 40K I m not giving anything away by telling you that both parties fail in their primary mission and the story climaxes in a battle between the imperials and the dark assassin The plot moves fast and is well written there is the obligatory cameos from some of the big 40k figures Rogal Dorn Erebus Horus and best of all the Emperor The Hockey Saint (Forever Friends, himself get a few lines at last All in all I enjoyed it but it did not reach the uality of other books in the series all right the ones by McNeil Abnett A solid read Not among the greatest in the series and the tie in to the Heresy isn t so tight youave to read it but it s a cool look into a different aspect of the Imperium James Swallow seems to be a Valentino hit a miss author for me I don t really care for many ofis Blood Angles books but I really enjoyed Flight of the Eisenstein I believe that Mr Swallow should stick with the Horus Heresy novels because Nemesis is a very good readThe book feels like part detective novel and part Dirty Dozen There is a serial killer that is being tracked down by local law enforcement on a sleepy little world that as largely untouched by the eresy We also see the an execution force put together by all of the different sects or clades of assassins on Terra These killers are sent to kill the Warmaster and stop Shunned his insurrection before it can continue any furtherI am usually not a fan of two books in one that we often seen in the Black Library stories but this one wasn t so bad in my opinion For one thing the two stories were merged together pretty uickly and for another thing both threads were just so damn interesting I wasn t left upset when they story switched gearsThe Horus Heresy books are always interesting to me as we generally know what is going toappen at the end We KNOW that the execution suad will be ultimately unsuccessful in killing the Warmaster but Swallow does a good job of weaving a story in there that still feels as if it as a successful conclusion even. S conveneTheir plan is to send a team of assassins to execute the arch traitor Horus and end the war for the galaxy of mankind before.
