One of the GOOD Black Library Horus Heresy anthologies, especially if you haven't read 'Daemonology' and 'Black Oculus' before.Let's judge the stories:'Daemonology' by Chris Wraight - a very good story regarding Mortarion, his DG and their not so distant future. Spoilers - try as he might to study the maleficarum 'Which is all around you now', as Khan said, will not change the end result anyway. It will all ends badly ;)But it was good to know, that some daemons could hide and bide their time for such a long time.'Black Oculus' by John French - a very small story, and a big teaser for the follow up 'Tallarn: Executioner' and 'Tallarn: Ironclad'. Expertly written by a true master of suspence in BL author circle.'Twisted' by Guy Haley - Haley now truly become a very good BL author. He should write a full HH novel - i'm convinced in that. All the story is truly can be described as it is written in synopsis on BL site: 'Malorghast is having a truly bad day' ;) Plus as a lovely bonus - quick glance on the metamorphosis of 'Vengeful spirit' with all the Octed and warp around.'Chirurgeon' by Nick Kyme - normal story about, well, as expected - Fabius Bile. Nothing outstanding here, but where are 2 revelations, 1 on the Legion scale, and 1 personal. Due to them, after all, it's a good story. But Nick could use some lessons from John on creating suspence ;)'Wolf Mother' by Graham McNeil - outstanding story on itself, but gives literally nothing to general HH plotline, and it's moving forward, except for the meeting of Perpetual and future Grey Knight ;) Reading 'Vengeful spirit' before it, is highly recommended, because it has several characters from the novel. Plus it is a quick paced short which will teach you all 1 lesson - DO NOT FUCK WITH Olivia ;) Oh, and now we actually have a likeable Perpetual, truly ;)If i haven't read 2 of 5 stories a long time before this anthology, i definitely would have given it 5 stars, due to the enjoyable read. But as i had read them - 4 of 5 stars will suffice ;)

A few months after Death and Defiance, the first novella-length, non-limited edition Horus Heresy short story anthology, comes Blades of the Traitor, a collection of five short stories from some of Black Library’s best-known authors. Interestingly, Black Library are offering readers a choice straight away of how to purchase these stories – the physical book is due for release soon (after pre-release at the Horus Heresy Weekender) while the ebooks are available either as a well-priced collection or as individual stories. It’s therefore up to readers whether to cherry pick the stories they’re most interested in or read them all as a collection.Read the rest of the review at https://trackofwords.wordpress.com/20...
Another waste of time from Black Library's favourite money-spinner. Gone are the days of decent novels with coherent plots. Now, we're into the age of piss-poor novellas punctuated by dull sprawling books about periphery characters and plotlines.2 stars. Because at least it's not full of Salamanders.
This collection of Horus Heresy short stories, ranging from decent to meh, just serves to highlight how lost I am. I wish there was some kind of preface now that read to the effect 'Previously with this character this happened'.
Not bad, but little bit mess in characters.
Another fantastic offering from the Black Library, and John French (et al) in particular. All of the short stories in this slime tome are worth reading, but the Chirurgeon in particular is masterful!
