    One thought on “Dark Imperium”

    1. There are very few things as daunting as new beginnings, but Guy Haley takes the challenge head on. Dark Imperium represents our first look behind the curtain of 8th edition, the first lurch into the 42nd Millennium. It acknowledges the past, anchors the present and presents a number of wonderful glimpses towards the future. It is a daunting undertaking, and one that will undoubtedly be subject to heightened scrutiny and scorn.And I loved it.Moving from a macro-view of the nature of the galaxy, [...]

    2. A solid new entry into the 40k pantheon. Dark Imperium has some decent action sequences, and the fluff is built upon nicely by Haley. The stuff regarding the Primaris marines needed further development, and I was disappointed not to read more about Mortarion in this entry. A lot to look forward to in the future.

    3. An exceptional first step into the future of Games Workshop's far flung and grim future. Though it could be argued that the end comes a little quicker than one might desire, this fact serves to reinforce the bedrock of a quite excellent tale.There's a miss or two here and there, as with all books. Certain characters yearn for just one more interaction as all who foster our intrigue might. What Dark Imperium does is fling open the doors to a future of the IP which I for one cannot wait to see exp [...]

    4. Well here we are, the beginning of the next chapter in 40k history; the return of the Avenging Son. Roboute Guilliman has been on death's door for thousands of years, struck down after the Horus Heresy and nearly slain. This book details events that have spurred the new lore in the 8th edition of the Warhammer 4ok tactical wargame. As always, the game writes the lore, and it has for many decades now. Guilliman was revived by the master of the Adeptus Mechanicus, the rogue genius Belisarius Cawl. [...]

    5. Opening with Guilliman and Fulgrim’s fateful duel 10,000 years in the past, this focuses thereafter on the conclusion of Roboute Guilliman’s Indomitus Crusade, a little over 100 years after the events of the Gathering Storm.This is a novel with multiple aims, but what it doesn’t do is try to answer every question about what’s changed in 40k. It doesn’t detail the immediate aftermath of Guilliman’s rebirth or explain what Cawl was doing all along…instead it offers occasional hints t [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this book. Guy Haley is set a monumental and arguablytask- to set the background for a whole new generation of Warhammer 40,000 fluff. One has to say that it is a task that would challenge any author, even some of the Black Library's bigger hitters like Abnett and Dembski-Bowden but he carries it off well.He is presented with a very different Imperium, facing a radically exacerbated threat from the forces of Chaos and the need to use all the rebranded names for stuff. Here we ha [...]

    7. The good: The book serves to "conclude" the story of the Heresy-era Ultramarines and to further the story of the 41st/42nd Millennium Ultramarines! And it does so by bringing the most Ultra of the Heresy Era Ultramarines, Roboute Guilliman, into the 42nd Millennium! He gets to meet Black Library's primary Ultramarine protagonist, which sent me into spasms of fanboy glee. The characterization of both Guilliman and Marneus Calgar were the narrative highlights of the book. The Rise of the Primarch [...]

    8. O.k finished at last. What started with an impressing story to read devolved into typical Warhammer bolter-and-sword-porn, so I take one point off from my first impression.The story starts with Lord Guilliman in internal conflict between the WH30K era "Imperial Truth", mixed with WH40K era description of everyone wanting to believe in his divinity (and, of course, that of big E). Reading of a planetary assault that had nearly Heinleinesque "hard scifi" descriptions of the new Primus armour and b [...]

    9. Well written book with an interesting story (of how Bobby reacts to the zealous Imperium), though as it is supposed to be a trilogy, nothing actually gets resolved in this book.However, as this is tied to release of the Primaris Space Marines in the tabletop game, all of the action is focused on them. These parts, though only about 4-5 of them thorough the book, are written like a shameless advertisement. After reading how efficient and so much better they are for the upteenth time (not to menti [...]

    10. An adequate read. Dissappointed that while the book told about the story of Guilliman's wounding, and placing in stasis, the story then jumps 100 years on and briefly covers the awakening period of his life. I was of the understanding that this period was to have be explained (rather than buy an $80 book to read the fluff). All up a typical Black Library novel, nothing exceptional, a fireside filler.

    11. It had its moments - Haley really captures the bigness of everything in the 40K universe.Unfortunately, the book's critical flaw - one I find in many novice authors, is that it feels more like a number of short stories strung together. All in all, a fun read at its best when dealing with the primarch's reaction to how times have changed millenia after his near-death, but it doesn't quite rise to the heights of Eisenhorn either.

    12. The next progression of the story of Warhammer 40k is well told by Guy Haley in this book. I always wondered whether there would be named Primaris marines and they are pretty much brought to the front by Guilliman himself. Interesting to see where the conflict between them and the Death Guard would go to. Nice start for 8th edition lore!

    13. This book just left me wanting more from it. Nothing really happened, and apart from Guilliman, no characters really stood out. Nice cameos from some of the older Ultramarines, but the story felt more like a scene setting than an epic tale. Wanted more from this.

    14. It was a great book and read and I commend GW on taking a brave step forward. However I think it needed more Guilliman. He is so superbly written in this, it's just a shame he only appears in about 6 chapters.

    15. Primari$ $pace Marine$The sad part is that there are interesting nuggets--imperial creed, Calgar's demotion, Cawl's trustworthiness--but the product placement is so over the top that it trumps the narrative.

    16. This was a very quick update to the 40K universe. I usually really like Haley's writing and I do here as well, but it seems slightly rushed. It is interesting to see the Ultramarine's Primarch trying to adjust to and adjust the post Horus Heresy universe. I welcome and look forward to the new era.

    17. As a starter to a new arc of stories in Warhammer 40k universe this book was ok. Not the best of the Black Library works, but definitely a solid addition to the vast epicness that is Warhammer 40k!

    18. Its good but not very exciting. Wraps up the Indomitus Crusade. Lots of Roboute Guilliman and the Primaris Space Marines.Includes a very detailed description of Nurgle's elite Plague Guard led by the Great Unclean One Ku'Gath. (the Father of Plagues)

    19. Really enjoyable readGreat insight into the mind of Guilliman and a really exciting start to the new era.May there be many more
