Illuminating, entertaining, visual

Can’t wait for the (hopefully) third!!

Enjoyed the second book in the series much more than the first and that’s saying something. Was pleasantly surprised with the pacing of this novel and the further exploration of Fabius’ mind.

fabulous bill strikes again!

Bile is one of my favorite anti-heros. He is such a coniving devious bastard who honestly seems to have humanities best interests in mind.

Stories like these are what made me love Chaos

Fabius Bile is one of the more interesting characters in the 40k universe. The previous book, Primogenitor was extremely good as well but this novel helps establish what his end goals for his work to shape the future of the galaxy. His struggle with decisions based on emotion vs. logic and results from them that could alter the course of his work, as well as the remainder of his legion make him a very interesting character to follow.

The ending left me with a sense of longing to know how the events that occurred will change the course of the Warhammer 40k universe, given what has happened since after the Gathering Storm. It also makes me wonder if Bile will come to later regret his decision more in the next novel.

As I said before I really enjoyed Josh Reynolds previous Fabius Bile novel and after completing this one I may need to check out some of his other works, Black Library or otherwise, while waiting for a sequel to Clonelord. Last but not least, Johnathan Banks is one of my favorite Black Library narrators, alongside others like Jonathan Keeble, that make stories like these interesting until the very end with their impressive vocal range commitment to distinguishing characters and further developing their personalities.

I cannot wait for the next book in the Fabius Bile series, should it continue.

Gw says you can't play with those<br />

I enjoyed this story very much. I love Fabius Bile and what he brings to the Warhammer 40k setting by being an atheist chaos space marine who believes in science, logic and his work.

During this story Fabius will go through a pretty good character arc, he will question his beliefs and his goals, his actions will bring about great and exiting changes for his legion, fellow Astartes and the galaxy as a whole. Until (spoiler alert) a huge deus ex machina fixes everything in two seconds and sends it all back to the status quo we all know and stagatantly love.

Again: I enjoyed this book a lot, I just wish I never heard/read the last two chapters. Dreams where crushed.

Fabius Bile has become one of my favorite characters in Wh40k, even though I have this huge issue with this book I hope they release more stories of him soon.

book is a disappointment

this book is a disappointment, you will be very disappointed. trust me its better this way. black library gives the reader what they want then at thd very end take it all away, reducing the readers or listeners dream in the lore to ashes.

He is Bile...in name and character...Awesome book

Story wise the book is amazing. The narrations are flawless as well. Makes you giggle when you think how his conversation with 41k Robute would look like. I'm am not a fan of chaos. Truly not. But I will always make an exception Fabius"Waste not" Bile :)

Great story great character

The portrayal if Fabius is excellent, monstorous, humane, humours and remorseful. A wonderful tale that keeps the listener enthralled throughout.
