descent of angels

Fantasy in space. Knights with guns. Beast versus man. This is my intro. You should be hooked by now. This review will be short because Descent of Angels is one of those books that knows what it aims to do and does it well. Its only problem is that it doesn’t aim high enough.

Descent of Angels – Book Info

Descent of Angels, written by Mitchel Scanlon, is the 7th book in the Horus Heresy series of the Warhammer 40K universe. It is the first that can stand as a standalone, and it has literally no connections to the rest of the books. The action of the book happens 50 years before the events of the main series. That also means that if you’re looking for a continuation of the main events, you will not find it here.

What you will find in the Descent of Angels is a bit of lore about Caliban before the Imperium of Man discovers the planet. Caliban is the origin planet of the Dark Angels, one legion of Space Marine in Warhammer 40K.
