    1. As I said to a friend of mine it s as awesome as Know No Fear, only with the infinitisimally cooler Blood Angels instead of Ultramarines.In the first chapters of the book it already becomes clear that the Blood Angels Black Rage is NOT, as lore implicitly led us to believe, a condition that only manifested in the Blood Angels after their Primarch died it already existed before that Which immediatly begs the question what causes it hint it s quite easy to imagine once you consider the chapter s n [...]

    2. This is the problem with a series any series usually, they aren t planned out at the start This leads from whatever beginning good, bad, otherwise to most often a strong middle and then the end could go either way And God help you if you re dealing with a trilogy with an amazing second act Warhammer 40,000 The Horus Heresy isn t under the restraints of a trilogy It now spans 18 novels plus 3 announced and we re just reaching the end of the Second Act , 8 collections of novellas and short storie [...]

    4. So, needless to say, I m going to keep reading this unending series I ve come to terms with the fact that it never will However, I definitely have my favorite installments which tend to go over extremely well with me and my let downs Sadly, this chapter falls into the second category I really was looking forward to this particular take on the Blood Angels a personal favorite , and was sadly disappointed.This books dragged like no other, for everything execpt the last 50 100 pages or so It took m [...]

    5. In all blunt honesty I have not been a huge fan of James Swallow s other Horus Heresy novels, this book however reminded me Black Library doesn t hire crappy writers for Horus Heresy 40k and fantasy I m told there are somebut I m not to expert there James Swallow took a stand beside my favorite writers in the series, Graham McNeill, Dan Abnett and Aaron the guy who s last name I m to lazy to look up and spell.This book probably had the most flash backs of any heresy novel so far but it was sorfe [...]

    6. This is without a doubt the dopest shit I have ever read The Blood Angels are put to the ultimate test, as angels are thematically pitted against vile demons of the warp I frequently grew spontaneous erections as battle scenes involving Sanguinius were portrayed, and wept tears of joy at depictions of his undying love for his sons Many times I felt a warmth come over me as I imagined that I was a Bloof Angel and Dopeguinius was talking to me personally I was travelling at the time of finishing t [...]

    7. Fear to Tread describes an operation by the forces of Chaos that is meant to turn Primarch Sanguinius and the 9th Space Marine Legion, the so called Blood Angels, to their cause To succeed, Chaos plans to take advantage of a genetic flaw in Sanguinius and the Legion s DNA As the Heresy is getting under way, the outwardly still loyal Warmaster orders the entire 9th Legion and their unsuspecting Primarch to a remote star system There they find themselves isolated and ambushed, fighting a new kind [...]

    8. Oh man, I have always been a fan of Mr Swallow s, especially his Blood Angels, but this novel left me speechless Now that it has been a few hours, I can really put into words how and why I loved it Firstly, the variety of character within the Blood Angels was remarkable From First Captain Ral and Fifth Captain Amit, to Sargent Cessiel and his squad, and the dozens of Blood Angels I didn t mention, they all had their own unique character Which was a blessing for the noble boys in Red I really lik [...]

    9. While I ve read a majority of the current Horus Heresy novels and I am interested in Warhammer 40k s lore I feel as if the further I ve delved into the world the it breaks down and becomes harder to read This book epitomized that in that it was actually painful trying to continue It s been a running theme that the Adeptus Astartes and their primarchs are enormously incompetent, which has aggravated me to no end Time and again the Astartes are so absolutely close minded as to be shockingly stupi [...]

    10. There are good Warhammer 40k books and bad Warhammer 40k books This was a good one The Horus Heresy novels recently have been poignant, if you can really use that word to describe this series, because you know that all of these stories about the Legions are moving inevitably towards Horus, Sanguinius and the Emperor all having their showdown at the Throne of Terra This is Sanguinius s novel I liked it because the concept of the Blood Angels sounds like something designed to draw 16 year old girl [...]

    11. In the end, I have to say that this was one very strong book It would have benefited if it was shorter, but despite its lenght, it is worthy of your attention Sanguinius is the best of all primarchs and only angels can truly fly, indeed Detailed review in Bulgarian here citadelata fear to tread t

    12. WOWWowry goodt just one of the best Wh40K s so far and one of the best of the horus series Story and great Detail with very good characters

    13. This would be a 5 book if the mystery and sinister terror that the first portion of the book conveyed remained throughout the story When the Blood Angels were first arriving, all of the cosmos defying witchery they bore witness to was absolutely awesome The mystery was tense, and horror was ripe But then, alas, it gets dispelled when the enemy is revealed and the book turns into a typical combat trudge as is common in 40k, or 30k books, and I lost some interest The ending was still engaging eno [...]

    14. Cassiel was the first to speak Is it over now Sanguinius spared him a look He shook his head Oh how I wish it was over then I found this book incredibly hard to get into and enjoy and I had a few problems with it Firstly, it s just too long In my opinion, the story could have been 100 pages shorter The amount of setting description of each moment was too much Secondly, I thought the story was boring The pace was too slow and I wasn t made to care about this legion I found myself shouting at the [...]

    15. The Warhammer 40K series has a long and complex backstory so newcomers might find this book a bit much to take in Essentially the story is about a legion of Blood Angels space marines that get sent to a trap designed to bring out their primal bloodlust and turn them into servants of chaos The trap is sprung, and a battle breaks out in space and planetside, with a small group racing to save their brothers Was looking for an easy read with descriptions of epic battles and was not disappointed.

    16. It was a bit of a slog trying to finish the book, I m not sure what it is but the pacing doesn t feel good All in all, I wanted to read about the Blood Angels, and with their struggles and victories, I guess I ve formed a decent view on them An average book but sheds light on the IX Legion.

    17. Very Very good I felt like it started slow but that was part of the whole plot too Once it sped up I couldn t put it down.

    18. Original Post thefoundingfields 2012 07 Dual Review with Lord of the Night, fellow TFF member An epic tale that s just what Blood Angels fans were waiting for Explosive stuff Fear to Tread is epic Although it may not be as powerful as Know No Fear was, Swallow proves that he can write better novels then Nemesis This is one of the upper tier novels in the Horus Heresy series, for several reasons that I will go into below, after the blurb Since the earliest days of the Great Crusade, Sanguinius an [...]

    19. I had started to read this book awhile ago and then it got set aside for other novels I decided to give it another try during a recent vacation and was able to finish it finally The overall plot is an interesting one that is ripe with potential, yet manages to fall short of the mark Fear to Tread is about the Blood Angels and their flaw Anyone who has been a fan of Warhammer 40k will know the history of the Blood Angels and their chapter s flaws In this novel, Swallow tackles explaining not only [...]

    20. Up front I must state that I was extremely apprehensive about this book, having thoroughly disliked James Swallow s first three Blood Angel books But I tried to stay optimistic and hoped that experience had improved the author s style, and the 30k setting would see better results from Mr Swallow.Thankfully much of my optimism was rewarded Overall the story was well written, characters were nicely crafted, and there was no trampling of existing canon One of the highlights for me was Swallow s cha [...]

    21. As a Blood Angels player and reader of much Black Library fiction, I was not impressed with this installment of the Horus Heresy Granted, this was the first I read after the main 3 surrounding the Luna Wolves Sons of Horus and Isstvan massacre, but I found a few glaring issues.Sanguinius is too damned perfect I get it, the essence of an angel and the positive aspect of his father, the brightest of the primarchs and all that However, flaws in the Emperor s character are referenced a thousand time [...]

    22. I started this book without any kind of expectations and without any knowledge of Blood Angels lore I only read one other book by James Swallow The Flight of the Eisenstein which I did not like very much Basically the only reason I picked this up was to have some extra background going into The Unremembered Empire.The book has about 300 pages of patient, methodical build followed by roughly 200 pages of action and pure war Mixed between chapters are a few for lack of a better word anecdotes Litt [...]

    23. I m probably being overly lenient in my star rating, as the parts I didn t like and the parts whose inclusion struck me as just plain pointless threatened to overwhelm the positive aspects of the story This book also suffers from the same affliction I ve noticed in some other Heresey yarns it kept going after the story ended This conceit to a longer narrative is the albatross that hang around so many Heresey era works The outcome of the Heresey is a foregone conclusion, it s set in ten thousand [...]

    24. Fear to Tread spotlights another of the Space Marine Legions This time the Emo Vampire Angels TM knonw as the Blood Angels It follows a pattern laid out by a few earlier books loyalist legion recieves cryptic messages, goes off, whoops Horus is a traitor and they re all fucked, righteous buttkicking ensues It doesen t have any particularly interesting character interactions, or even that much interesting institutional stuff since most of the Blood Angels peculiarities come about as a result of t [...]

    25. Back when I was a 40K playing teenager Blood Angels were my favourite Astartes chapter and I must admit to feeling some trepidation when I heard James Swallow was writing their first entry in the Horus Heresy series Of Swallow s work I ve read the incredibly boring Flight of the Eisenstein, the superb Nemesis and the thus far pretty good Garro audio books With this track record in mind I wondered Where in this spectrum, that ranges from dull to awesome, would my once beloved Blood Angels fall Th [...]

    26. This is another mediocre novel in the Horus Heresy series, but if you re a fan of the universe and the series, you ll probably find it better than the three stars I m giving it There are some minor technical nits a bolter has a magazine, not a clip , but my main complaint comes from the willful blindness exhibited by one of the greatest primarchs Sanguinius This is quickly becoming a repetitive problem with the series where the supposedly super human primarchs, with all their stupendous intellec [...]

    27. excellent, enojoyed all the way, very slow to get started but the set up was carefully laid out for the reader so you can grasp the full measure of the treachery and betrayal of the heresy.I think James Swallow has done an excellent job as usual and is most definitely a blood angel, if not sanguinius himself hand on heart I think this story is where I personally thought this is it the heresy has started all the pieces are in play Sanguinius pain I truely felt and the abundance of characters brou [...]

    28. Mixed feelings on this onee story is fantastic, and I really enjoy reading about Sanguinius and the Blood Angels The problem for me here was I hit one of my dreaded reading slumps around the holidays while trying to read about 10 pages a night or so Also, Swallow lavished in a period of what I felt was redundant, way overblown writing after the Blood Angels main ship crashed on Signus Prime This is the portion of the story where the legionaries and their primarch Sanguinius battle the evil force [...]
