I’ve read four chapters so far and it’s really, really good.

And first tidbit for me - Felix is primaris 10-079-983 implying there are many, many thousands of primaris marines


Not necessarily.

It could be.
Batch 10
Sub parts 79
Try # 798

Call names things like a mfging company.

He could be test # 800~. Of the batch that oblyn1 worked.

However felixs to me felt like he was a trial for greyknights

Listen to half of the book now and it is a really good story! Good blend of history flash backs and present day.

I am a man, raised by wolves and warriors in a world of ice and fire. I am a primarch, made by the Emperor to the patterns of forgotten science. Duality is part of my nature.

'The false Russ nodded as he circled around his other self, his high, black boots crunching in the snow.
'The civilized barbarian. The magic hater who surrounds himself with mumbling priests. The berserk thinker. The leashed hound who runs free. The Terran Fenrisian.
''Aye, 'said Russ.' That's me. It does a man no favours to be straightforward.

Just read chapter one. Love the elixir of life and how it is made...very grim dark. Off to a great start and looking forward to this one mostly for HH era stuff and Guilliman interactions.

Well, it's already been stated that there were tens of thousands/hundred+thousand Primaris Marines as part of the Unnumbered Sons.

It's quite a scary book. As a film, it would be fantastic. The dream manipulation stuff is probably going to effect my sleeping tonight!

Phew, usual Hayley prose and enjoyable; really tough reading for a long time fan - interesting threads being tied off. Glad Hayley treated my namesake Sebastion well, he's been passed on through three authors now. Couple big reveals and explanations, and this "secret" that left us hanging after Goulding left is being addressed.

Tough reading as in the fates of some long time characters. I've been a fan of the Scythes since 1997 and have followed their growing history and appearances. A few revelations to be found that raised my eyebrows.

The term Mary Sue has really gotten synonymous with "stronger than average character I don't like" these days, it seems. Heck, I even had an argument on BoLS when the new Gotrek model got its rules. That other person didn't know jack all about Gotrek & Felix and simply called the dwarf a Mary Sue. I wonder how many eyes Mary ever lost in her blind rampages, or how many families she had die on her...

Yeah, I’d expect that to conveniently change to Cawl suddenly finding a new technological way to perfect them in the future, when GW wants to sell you an even more new and improved marine :lol:

Just finished it, didn’t disappoint at all. Haley is fast becoming black library’s premier author imo. Not just the quality and volume of work but answering questions about the setting raised by the sweeping events of global campaigns and new model additions.

Well, i think i will buy it, i was cautious regarding Cawl fluff, but with the spoilers and reviews givens, i think it worth the money.

 

Regarding the Spoilers,

Secondly regarding the Emperor, one thing come to my mind from the Codex Adeptus Custodes (It is a long citation, to give context) :

Ok, no problem, i wasn't sure myself if had to put the whole thing as spoilers since it did not truly revealed that much, but i wasn't sure in the end, so it is a question solved^^. =)
