What the community says about Mechanicum (The Horus Heresy)
- "I'm unsure if this explicitly features powered armor, but the general story concepts here are extremely fitting for any fan of powered armor or the like. This is a very Warhammer 40K esque futuristic setting, and this would appeal to any fan of that property. For anyone looking for more grim fantasy futuristic settings, this might be a good choice."
- "This is a strong entry into a beloved series. While it may not be the absolute best, it is still a good read. It explains a great deal to those already immersed in the world, although new arrivals can catch on quickly. There's a political dimension to the book which made me think of real-world issues, which I appreciated. "
- "Mechanicum is the 9th book in the Horus Heresy series, and while I'd obviously recommend ready the earlier books first, it's probably my favorite. It tells the story of civil war on Mars and is set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000, but 10,000 years earlier. The other great thing about this book is that if you enjoy the world, there are currently 46 in the series, so you'll have plenty to immerse yourself in."
- "Well written and fun book to read! If you're a fan of this genre, which I am, you will be entertained throughout the book. The story develops slowly at first but it is mainly because the backstory is being explained. Once I got through the first few chapters, it completely held my attention."
- "Mechanicum is very good science fiction book written by Graham McNeill, who is known for his sci-fi works. Mechanicum is also part of a series that is one of the New York Times best selling series. It tells a story of a civil war on Mars in a futuristic setting."
- "Fantasy books like this for young adults may not be wise for all kids. I think parents should be careful what they expose their children to. Once it is in the mind, it is there forever. This book deals with "angels" and "spirits." If you are not okay with that, don't get them this book."
