Finished it within a week, which is a new record for me due to work, having a kid, etc.
Such a damn good and well written one. It hooked me right from the intro. The way the Primaris were introduced into Elara's Veil was way more better written and done than the overall official stuff. Due to all the future stuff, which was already teased in this one, I honestly cannot wait to see a continuation. The Pure, Elysium, the fate of certain characters... Do we already know if the second one is in the making or will it be done after Aaron's contribution to the Siege?
I dare to say that the only time I was on such a hype level was after finishing Soulhunter. The Spears are so enjoyable. Their behavior, their culture, just everything was well researched. I fell in love with them, seriously. Although I got several favorite chapters, most notably the Vlka, most of the time, they are somewhat too much focused on a certain theme or are overusing certain aspects (wolfy mcwolf wolf or the Salamanders & fire or the DAs and their secrecy). The Spears, in comparison, feel more balanced, somewhat way more realistic / natural. Furthermore, they reminded me of my Hawaiian themed chapter, the Storm Riders (ocean world, storms, close brotherhood, somewhat of a bro-type).
Others have already praied this one more eloquent, previously. Long speech short: I highly reckommend this one to everyone, even if you're disliking the Primaris. This book redeems a lot. At least to me.
And thanks for giving us an insight of your research (with whom you had spoken, etc.). Knowing this made it even better.
Some thoughts I have to leave:
