Présentation de l'éditeur

Anthology of short stories revealing the untold tales of the Underworld War.

The Heresy came to Calth without warning. In just a few hours of betrayal and bloodshed, the proud warriors of the XIIIth Legion – Guilliman’s own Ultramarines – were laid low by the treachery of their erstwhile brothers of the XVIIth. Now, as the planet is scoured by solar flares from the wounded Veridian star, the survivors must take the fight to the remaining Word Bearers and their foul allies, or face damnation in the gloomy arcology shelters beneath the planet’s surface. A collection of stories by authors including Dan Abnett, Aaron Demsbki-Bowden and Rob Sanders. The battle for Calth is far from over...

Biographie de l'auteur

Laurie Goulding was born in London, grew up in Burton-upon-Trent, and then experienced a slight regression in Winchester before finally settling in Nottingham. As the original director of Black Library TV, he would regularly make the authors uncomfortable by sticking a camera in their faces – now he achieves the same effect by wielding a red pen as a member of the editorial team.

HASH(0x975d8bf4) étoiles sur 5 Mostly good... 13 août 2013

Mark of Calth is a collection of eight short stories about what happened after the treasonous and treacherous attack of the 17th Legion of the Word Bearers on Calth and the 13th Legion of the Ultramarines, and after they had "poisoned the system's sun", making the surface of the planet inhabitable.

As it generally happens for many readers in such cases, I liked some stories more than others. The two I liked the least were the first one ("the Shards of Erebus", by Guy Haley) and, more surprisingly, the last one ("Unmarked") by Dan Abnett, although he happens to be one of my favourite authors (and in this I am certainly not alone). The reasons for not liking these two stories were similar. They were drafted in such a way that I simply did not see the point of the story or, perhaps more accurately, I did not understand what the respective authors were getting at.

I like the six other stories, however. My three favourites were "The Traveller" (David Annandale), The "Underworld War" (Aaron Demski-Bowden) and "The Athame" (John French), essentially because they were the most original in both style and content although I will refrain from mentioning anything more about them to avoid spoilers.

For those familiar with the works of Anthony Reynolds, "Dark Heart" will show you something of the early feats of one Marduk, and how he manages to impress Kor Phaeron, first Captain of the Word Bearers. "Calth that Was" (Graham McNeill) and "A Deeper Darkness" (Rob Sanders) are told from the perspective of the Ultramarines. They are about how they continued to fight the war against the Word Bearers but from underground. The "Underworld War" is also largely about this underground conflict, but from the viewpoint of a Word Bearer.

Three and a half stars.

Not as good a read as I had hoped that it would be,especially after reading other books that were based on events before and after this book. I had hoped for a better read to expand my knowledge of this particular battle within the Warhammer universe. It's a vey good read but drags out in some places and it's sometimes hard to follow the story lines. But I did enjoy reading it once, but really doubt I'll go back to it later.

Mark of Calth is hit and miss. You may like how it deviates from the regular writing style of the Horus Heresy or you may hate it. There were two characters I loved from a previous installment, an Ultramarine with half a ceramic face and his protector, which show up again here. They make an appearance, but do not take center stage or get developed at all. I had honestly forgot about them by this point, after reading some Space Marine novels and other stuff. That was the Graham McNiel story and I have to say, the writing style really left me confused, not knowing what was happening half the time. And with all stories, if this is where all these characters from this book die off, I really don't see any relevance as to why they brought them back. I'm not too in depth with the lore, maybe one of these characters becomes the founding master for a later chapter, I'm not sure, but I think it would be nice to get some info on stuff like that from the actual read, like having a current character remember or discover how the chapter came to be tracing that back to Calth or anywhere in these plot lines.

The most interesting story to me was about the athame by John French; I actually loved that perspective, wish it could have been more fleshed out and in depth. Disliked the perpetual continuity right after. I just don't like the thought of perpetuals. Bowden's tale (not in order) was okay, cool character, but you know what happens to any cool character that pops up.

Overall, I'm not a fan of the Calth atrocity, every event and connection is so far apart it's hard to get a clear picture of what and why its happening. This will most likely continue affecting the Horus Heresy because its in a direct series and time line wise, in and out of order. As a stand alone, I would have given it 1-2 stars, being it was so unclear, gave it 3 because it ties into the Heresy, although I don't know at what importance.

Sadly, this is just like all the other Heresy books coming out in the past year or so....plain Jane and not really moving the story along. I won't bother trashing the authors or going into spoilers/character flaws. This book was just another letdown in the series. Instead of moving the story along and getting to the good stuff, we are presented with another waste of time. I feel like the publishers are forcing these authors to pump out quantity of quality. I can't remember the last Abnett or McNiell book I read that knocked my socks off. I had to go back and read the Eisenhorn omnibus to get my faith back.

To black library...knock it the hell off. You are ruining this series. After this book, you can bet I won't be buying anymore physical copies. God bless torrents and ereaders. At least after the next crappy book in the Heresy, I wont be upset that I gave you any money.

As a 40K fiction fan of the First Order--and a huge fan of all things Ultramarine--this novel was a delight. The Horus Heresy line is fantastic, and I encourage readers of it who have yet to sample this segment of the story arc to do so with all speed! Imperator Vult! ('the Emperor Wills It!') Enjoy--I did. The characters are well-developed, the plot and pacing move nicely. The piece is structured intelligently, and pleasant to read. I will find more of this authors work--and so should you.
