Angels of Darkness

Angels of Darkness is one of the books written by Gav Thorpe for the Warhammer 40,000 series. Popularly referred to like 40K, Warhammer 40K is a tabletop miniature game that is produced by Games Workshop and which features dystopian science fantasy universe. The novel is themed on a Dark Angels interrogator chaplain who has doubts on his chapter. He is on a crusade to bring The Fallen to justice after they infiltrate the system. Over the course of the book, the author takes the readers to one of chaplain interrogations with one of the “Fallen” apparently a space marine from the future. In this instance, the readers get to know as to the reasons that caused the civil war in Dark Angels ranks. The novel jumps back in time and forth in time, and over the course of the book, the readers get to discover the secrets behind Dark Angels.

Angels of Darkness is a must-have book for every fan of the Warhammer 40K universe. The way the story is told is spectacular, as the novel is split into two distinct time periods that are apparently connected. The plot twists make this novel interesting while the different characters both primary and secondary are well crafted and their interactions with each other done excellently.

Deliverance Lost

Deliverance Lost is the 18th book in the New York Times bestselling novel series, The Horus Heresy series by Gav Thorpe. During the division of Imperium by Horus Heresy, Corax and the remainder of his Raven soldiers escape the mass killing at Isstvan V. They tend to their wounds and aim to replenish their numbers as well as their weapons so as to take their fight to the traitor, Warmaster. Corax thus returns to his home in Terra to seek the help of his father- the emperor of humanity. He is thus granted the access to ancient secrets and immediately begins rebuilding his Raven soldiers for ultimate battle.

Unfortunately, not all of his remaining Raven Guard are what they appear to be; this is because a strange Alpha Legion has already infiltrated his group of survivors and has a plan in mind. To bring mass destruction the Raven Guard as soon as possible before they can rebuild and be a threat to the Horus plans.

Deliverance Lost is a great novel, the story is fantastic, and Corax character development is decent more so in the flashbacks to his early life on Deliverance. The author does a splendid job of pinpointing out that the fact that the Space Marines are post- humans while the Primarchs are not human. The overall storyline is well paced, featuring great action scenes, and some good, satisfying moments.
