Review of 'Horus Rising (The Horus Heresy)'

4 stars

Overall it was a solid book. While sometimes dwelling a little too long, the book does a really good job at exploring the philosophy of ideologies born out of times of conflict/war/persecution and how those ideologies hold as the world around them change. Far deeper than I expected, and more than enough to convince me to read another book in the series.

A fairly quick read that entertains and provides enough exploration of ideas about how we choose to interact with the world around us that it's certainly not just a throwaway. I enjoyed it.
