A Great War is coming, and it will engulf the Imperium of Man. The Space Marines of the Alpha Legion, the last and most secretive of all the Astartes brotherhoods, arrive on a heathen world to support the Imperial Army in a pacification campaign against strange and uncanny forces. But what drives the Alpha Legion? Can they be trusted, and what side will they choose when the Heresy begins? Loyalties are put to the test, the cunning schemes of an alien intelligence are revealed, and the fate of mankind hangs in the balance.

In this installment your introduced to the Alpha Legion which is the youngest of all legions so far, but the majority of the story and characters takes place int the Imperial Army. The reader is introduced to the Cabal which has been battling Chaos sense before the human race was born and using a secret agent in the imperial army is trying to open up a dialogue with the Alpha Legion so they can stop the coming war. This is a good book again and is full of mystery's where you are trying to find who's side everyone is on but does not do much to advance the overall story. I hope they stop introducing new legions and get some movement in the story as a whole with what they already have.

Alpharius and the Alpha Legion are the least known, least popular but unequivocally the most mysterious of the all the space marines. Why they turned away from the crusade, mankind and the emperor remained shrouded in myth, until now. While I have enjoyed almost all of the novels Mr. Abnett has published heretofore, I feel he falls short with "Legion." While it is the seventh book in the Horus Heresy series and replete with the nuances and character development I have come to love oh so much from Mr. Abnett, I can't help but be disappointed in what, to me as the reader, felt like a flash ending. I just didn't buy Mr. Abnett's character development as to why such a deliberate, obstinate, and provident legion would rebel abruptly and with such violent vehemence. The novel which started so well, sadly, felt rushed towards the end.

What the fug do you think you’re doing? Guess who’s back? Returning champion Dan Abnett, not seen since book one (Horus Rising) triumphantly returns to helm book seven of the never disappointing (fingers crossed) Horus Heresy series. Not that I missed him overmuch, since his fellow writers were so adept and skillful in their own installments. Still, I’m excited as Abnett is the reason I started reading this series at all, after loving his Ravenor trilogy. Well, this entry is just as strong as any other, once again introducing a new group of Astartes for us to follow around, this time the Alpha Legion. I like these guys, they are kind of doing a “I am Spartacus” thing where it’s very hard to tell which one of these giant dudes is actually in charge. It lends a bit of mystery and even some comedy to these dark times, and they are exceedingly dark. The forces of evil from the warp are barely understood at this point and I love every detail that is teased out. I love this series, it’s grim, dark, violent, epic and full of cool words, names and turns of phrase I haven’t really encountered anywhere else. It’s like this universe has it’s own language, it feels different than anything else. I mean there is a guy with the last name Grammaticus. How cool is that? Sounds like a Transformer or something. Can’t wait for the next one. My only regret: I bought about ten of these things before they started coming out with the omnibus editions. Dang it! I like those better.

I am Alpharius. A great look at the Heresy boogie men.

It is a nice "break" from the main storyline and introduces (or re-introduces, depending on how you look at things) additional "what-if" scenarios. A good read.
