What the community says about Battle for the Abyss (The Horus Heresy)
- "as some reviews says this book is a book that u might as well skip it if u want so but then again is very cheap so i can read it and decide later is not a long book so i can read it and give my own review afterwards i dont know about best dark fiction books but u can give it a try since is so cheap "
- "Battle for the Abyss is no doubt the best book in the Horus Heresy series. I read all the books in 2010 and thought they were well-written, and really show-cased the writer's ability to develop a great plot line and carry it on through several volumes. If you're looking for an entertaining read in the fantasy genre, this is a must-read!""Battle for the Abyss is another Horus Heresy book that gets dumped on a lot. Personally, I don't think it's a particularly great entry but I enjoyed myself enough while reading it. When the Horus Heresy started out it was intended to just be a new setting where a multitude of stories could be told that didn't necessarily move the main plot forward and this book certainly falls into that category. It wasn't until later in the series where the authors shifted to telling stories that really focused on moving the main plot forward. The villain Zadkiel is pretty melodramatic to the point he's almost a parody but the action is cool so who cares if that's what you're wanting. I would suggest doing some jumping around first. I read The First Heretic, A Thousand Sons, and Prospero Burns before I got to Abyss and I think my deeper understanding of Word Bearer, Thousand Sons, and Space Wolves legions really helped me enjoy this book more than someone who might have read it in the order it was released."
- "I love the utopia and dystopian genre in general, but these books never let me down when it comes to what I like to see. I can always expect a lot of adventure and drama from this particular series and I know it will keeping me reading on for hours. I think this is a perfect solution when looking for a book in this genre and you will not be disappointed with the story line."
- "I. Do. Not. Like. This. Book. You should not buy this book. You would be better off burning your money. There's this old saw about how if you gave enough monkeys enough typewriters and enough time, they'd eventually turn out the works of Shakespeare? They'd turn out this book first."
