It was a fantastic idea to create a series of novels about the Horus Heresy. It complements and illuminates the 40k universe with a view on how it use to be and how they got where they are today.
The first novel is a great start to the series. There is a air of menace or doom about the story in that you feel all the way through that there is some defining moment or disaster just around the corner that kicks the whole heresy off. That is what keeps you reading until the end.
I'm reading it now. It sorta says what's going on where Horus doesn't get involved. It's not a bad book. The Rememberancer's point of view is very interesting. It is a different apporach to the Warhammer 40k Universe. Maybe one I am searching for
