Inhaltsangabe

The Great Crusade that has taken humanity into the stars continues. The Emperor of Mankind has handed the reins of command to his favoured son, the Warmaster Horus. Yet all is not well in the armies of the Imperium.

Horus is still battling against the jealousy and resentment of his brother primarchs, and when he is injured in combat on the planet Davin, he must also battle his inner daemon. With all the temptations that Chaos has to offer, can the weakened Horus resist?

Toby nails it every time !

It's a shame such heresy is so eloquently conveyed. All in all a great book in a great trilogy.

Between High and Low Literature

While the first entry in the series was mainly setup and world-building, book two finaly details the fall of Horus Lupercal in all its bittersweet irony. What makes it great is the pathos akin to theatric tradition of tragedy: Horus' fall is at the same time uncertain yet inevitable. All characters act somewhat comprehensibly, making the outcome all the more tragic.

Combined with the timeless themes of rampant ambition, critique of religion, and the nature of authoritarian rule and military power, this elevates "False Gods" to somewhat high literature. I came for cheesy Science-Fantasy, which the novel certainly delivered, but stayed for the cynical comments on the unchanging nature of man.

Had I discovered the Horus Heresy earlier, chances are I would have written my Bachelors Thesis about it instead of Miéville. It really is that good.

Spannende Geschichte und eine Dunkle Tragik

Dunkel und so wie man 40k kennt. Wer wissen will wie aus lupecal Horus wurde ist am richtigen Ort. Es ist die Geschichte von einem der sich in der Dialektik aus Hochmut und Zweifel verlaufen hat und dabei am Ende nicht so schlau ist, wie er meint zu sein.
