Graham McNeill continues the story of the single most important event in the history of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. For years, fans have been clamouring for novels about the Horus Heresy - the bloody civil war that set Space Marine against Space Marine and nearly spelled the end of mankind at the hands of the traitor Horus. The second book, in the initial trilogy, will be a springboard for a full range of books set during this terrible war - when gods walked amongst the stars and the Emperor of Mankind ascended to the Golden Throne. "False Gods" takes the epic story onwards as Horus struggles to keep his armies in line and the seeds of his downfall are sown.show more

Our customer reviews

This is the second book in Horus Heresy of the Warhammer 40K series and also the secondi na story arc which is dealt with in the first three books of the Horus heresy. I've only read the first 3 books (The first: "Horus Rising", the Second: "False Gods" and the third being "Galaxy in Flames") and this while an enjoyable read is probably the weakest of the three books in my opinion. This deals with Horus decending into Chaos. However I don't believe there is enough character development of Horus himself, it's almost like one minute he is good , then the next he's a chaos god. Horus and his storyline are left too much two dimensional for my taste while some of the more minor characters seem to be fleshed out more. However to enjoy the third book in the sequence this should be read.show more
