start of a brand new and epic than the most epic thing you can think of event series 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 Warhammer is like man brain candy to me, you know there will be explosions, and men like gods doing ungodly things to millions upon millions of aliens and other men who deserve it.That being said, The Black Library has made a bit of a ballsy move by spreading out what is essentially one giant story over 12 books over a year Because you never know what quality you will get from start to finish, however, Mr Abnett starts the blood flowing in grand fashion.Is it groundbreaking stuff nope it

yesterday, finished it in 3 hours So here goes my review Trying to be objective, I read so fast only the books, I am interested in like in case with this one Dan Abnett as an author even if book was written in 2012 and IF, High Lords in M32 GOOD reasons Guess what that s actually exact novel that mostly disappoint There are several reasons for that.1 As a beginning of a new series it is exactly how it should go get the feel of boogeyman and gr So, got my hands on I AM Slaughter yesterday, finished it in 3 hours So here goes my review Trying to be objective, I read so fast only the books, I am interested in like in case with this one Dan Abnett as an author even if book was written in 2012 and IF, High Lords in M32 GOOD reasons Guess what that s actually exact novel that mostly disappoint There are several reasons for that.1 As a beginning of a new series it is exactly how it should go get the feel of boogeyman and great menace Setting stage for bigger andhorrible events That it got right even if orcs are actually shown on the last 30 pages But as a novel on itself it s inconsistent, choppy and rushed.2 All the main flaws of Dan Abnett as a Warhammer 40k writer are here errors in lore, grave mistakes in timetable and general stuff of the 32nd mil., and his masterclass unimaginably rushed ending It s like he was written a 400 page novel, that was chopped to 230 pages New BL standards More to follow.3 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 781.M31 The Beast happens in 544.M32 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 Inquisition was looking All in all inquisition 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 end 5 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 personality.But 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 quality, 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 writer.Plus the depiction of events has a level of being chopped just, as the author starts explaining them.I give that novel 3 of 5 stars, and only because it s a start of something bigger.But, sadly, from the point of Dan Abnett s Black Library novels that s his worst novel to date The Beast was an Ork warboss of immense power His Waagh on the Imperium during the 30K timeline is infamous here we get the story of that time But, this story isn t just about the Ork threat since it also delves into the politics of the Imperial Senate.The Imperial Fists are detached from their guardianship of Terra and the entire Chapter is sent out to the world of Ardamanta to fight the xenos Chrome But, something is driving the Chrome towards the Imperium The vast majority of the book The Beast was an Ork warboss of immense power His Waagh on the Imperium during the 30K timeline is infamous here we get the story of that time But, this story isn t just about the Ork threat since it also delves into the politics of the Imperial Senate.The Imperial Fists are detached from their guardianship of Terra and the entire Chapter is sent out to the world of Ardamanta to fight the xenos Chrome But, something is driving the Chrome towards the Imperium The vast majority of the book is devoted to the Imperial Fists operations against the Chromes, as well as looking into the issues plaguing the Senate as seen through the eyes of the Inquisition and the Officio Assissinorium It isn t till the end you realize that a huge Ork invasion is underway.A great book from lore standpoints and I also enjoyed the look into the power politics of the Senate This is a three book set, so I shall have to rush out and find the second book of this excellent story Some spoilers below I Am Slaughter Oh man, now THAT is a title What can I say Abnett did a pretty good job here The first half of the novel was awesome The action with the Imperial Fists on Ardamantua was great, the political intrigue involving the Officio Assassinorum and the newish Inquisition was great The biggest highlight, I think, was the world building We haven t seen an Imperium at peace before, and man is it awesome To look at the Great Crusade Horus Heresy and then 40k, w Some spoilers below I Am Slaughter Oh man, now THAT is a title What can I say Abnett did a pretty good job here The first half of the novel was awesome The action with the Imperial Fists on Ardamantua was great, the political intrigue involving the Officio Assassinorum and the newish Inquisition was great The biggest highlight, I think, was the world building We haven t seen an Imperium at peace before, and man is it awesome To look at the Great Crusade Horus Heresy and then 40k, we never really got to see it I mean, just reading about the Adeptus Astartes being actually considered redundant and possibly going away is absolutely insane for the 40k universe, and damn was it interesting Unfortunately, the second half of the novel was a bit lackluster compared to the first The action was very rushed, the political intrigues and events were very brief, really it was like they took as much out of it to get the point across and leave as little actual writing as possible, whereas the first half was full to the brim of the nitty gritty details that Abnett does so well in the 40k universe And once we got to the final few chapters, shit hit the fan And we didn t really get to see shit hit the fan too much We got to see a slice of the land battle, a slice of the void war, and then a fairly random political ending I would have liked the book to be at least 100 or so pages longer so we actually got to see someI mean, we got to see snippets at best of 2 awesome fleets destroyed, and an entire Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes brought to ruin There have been whole 400 page novels that don t cover nearly that much, and yet here it was barely glossed over The Imperial Fists deaths and sacrifice didn t feel real, or important but for a few lines of dialogue As well as there was a few inconsistences that didn t really sit with me, such as the Imperial ideas about Orks are they a joke, or a real threat that must be contained , The Heresy War , has it ever been called that , What happened to the Black Crusade that happened around the same time as the Beast s Waaagh I know Dan Abnett generally takes some pre existing lore and throws some extra stuff in it, and sometimes it really works The Imperial Fists wall names was a bit weird however It didn t really add anything They should have just had wall names, and saved the word count spent with explaining most of it giving two step introductions and spent those words on a better 2nd half of the novel And The Magos Biologis Laruentis Need to correct for spelling was a damn good character If there is any one thing that I think Dan Abnett really knocked out of the park with this novel, it s the dialogue and conversation between human characters His Space Marine dialogue is decent, but Abnett does standard or above standard really, really damn well.So, I d say the novel was good, though had plenty of flaws A solid 4 5 because I really enjoyed it despite those flaws Really can t wait to see where the other authors take this series
