Horus Heresy: Scars by Chris Wraight – Book Review [Bellarius]


Returning to Scars one final time, Bellarius gives his thoughts on Chris Wraight’s novel as a whole.

“An ambitious story set on a grand scale, but lacking in focus and character.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Scars (Episode VI) by Chris Wraight – Review [Bane of Kings]


Milo, aka “Bane of Kings” reviews the sixth instalment of the first serialised Horus Heresy novel, Scars, penned by Chris Wraight and published by Black Library.  This instalment sees the continuation of the adventures of the White Scars as now, halfway in through the book, the plot really continues to pick up its pace. Episode VI, like previous instalments – is available to buy exclusively from Black Library as an ebook.

“Another excellent instalment. There hasn’t been a weak outing yet in Scars, and Episode VI is no different. Chris Wraight is on excellent form here as we reach the halfway mark – with the promise of greater things to come.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Scars (Episode Six) by Chris Wraight – Advance Review [Bellarius]


The Scars reviews continue as Bellarius takes a look at Episode Six of Chris Wraight’s serialised novel, but reflects largely upon the series as a whole thus far.

“Remaining consistantly strong, the series takes a break in the fighting to prepare for the next major events.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Scars (Episode V) by Chris Wraight – Review [Bane of Kings]


Milo, aka “Bane of Kings” reviews Episode V in the serialised Chris Wraight’s Scars, the latest book set in the multi-authored, New York Times Bestselling Horus Heresy series. Acting as the first novel in the series to be told in this format, Scars’s individual episodes are published weekly by Black Library and are available exclusively from their website. 

“A great continuation of Scars, Chris Wraight manages to move the plot along  and provides an interesting storyline for readers to follow. When this book is done, I’m sure Scars will rank among one of the strongest Horus Heresy books. But for now, we have to do with these weekly instalments.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields.

Horus Heresy: Scars (Episode Five) by Chris Wraight – Advance Review [Bellarius]


Bellarius returns with Chris Wraight’s serialised Scars once more, and finds an exciting tale held back by the same flaws.

“Engaging battles, interesting character development, a good chapter in a great story.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Scars (Episode Three) By Chris Wraight – Advance Review [Bellarius]


Bellarius returns to Scars by Chris Wraight with the soon to be released Episode Three.

“An exciting, fact paced installment with plenty of White Scars lore yet is held back by its format.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Horus Heresy: Scars (Episode Two) By Chris Wraight – Advance Review [Bellarius]


The reviews of Chris Wraight’s serialised Scars novel continues as Bellarius takes a look into the second episode.

“Interesting in spite of its flawed nature” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

The Primarchs – Advanced Review [EJ Davies]


EJ Davies takes on the latest (again) in the Horus Heresy series with the Christian Dunn edited collection of four novellas entitled The Primarchs focussing on Fulgrim, Ferrus Manus, Lion El’ Jonson, and the twins Alpharius and Omegon.

“A superb collection of stories, with some expansive ideas setting great events in motion for the later payoff in the Heresy.  Great stuff.” ~ The Founding Fields

Deliverance Lost by Gav Thorpe – Book Review [EJ Davies]


EJ Davies – new to The Founding Fields – reviews the latest in the New York Times Bestselling Series, picking up the threads laid in Raven’s Flight (audio drama), and The Face of Treachery (Age of Darkness anthology).

“Despite this being his first Horus Heresy novel, Gav Thorpe delivers a solid story with great action set pieces and twists aplenty.”
