James Swallow continues to write well crafted fiction for the Black Library, and Fear To Tread is no exception. This novel is fast paced and well executed, with interesting characters that are well developed and show thoughtfulness on Swallow's part in creating a legion that reflects it's present through the various chapters founded from it. There were a lot of "wow" moments in the novel, the end especially; and as the greater arc of the Horus Heresy unfolds I feel myself becoming more and more pulled in. I think when the series is finally done, there will be certain books that form a linear link and are must reads. This one is one of them.
I'm a life long reader of sci-fi and fantasy; and have been painting and modelling for about 10 years. Interested in chatting about some of the other books I've read? Send me an email or drop me a line on Shelfari.
