    1. The first full-lenght HH novel by Guy Haley after some good short stories is an awesome debut, a real masterpiece.An action packed tale with lots of twists, great unforgettable characters, references to Novamarines and Scythes of the Emperor Space Marines Chapters history and events echoing into the W40K setting 10000 years later. Really not bad for a first novel.Pharos is a touching tale of brotherly love too: Sanguinius and Guilliman;Sanguinius and Konrad Kurze (giving us an amazing fight scen [...]


    2. Review also published hereOh boy, what a ride. To me, Pharos is the Horus Heresy in top form. It covered all the bases: Primarch drama, action, massive Legion-scale battles, revelations, big repercussions for 40k as we know it, very likeable charactersPharos continues on from various plotlines within the Imperium Secundus story arc. Set after The Unremembered Empire and Deathfire in the mainline series, but also A Safe and Shadowed Place, The Long Night and The Dark Between the Stars as well as [...]


    3. Minor spoilers ahead. 'Pharos' is a first Horus Heresy novel from the uber talented sci-fi author Guy Haley. And guess what — HE OUTDONE HIMSELF with it. This novel is definitely one of the best HH novels to date. Especially count that knowing, that I hate Imperium Secundus stuff and think that it's Arc should have ended a long time ago.But let's get back to the amazing HH book # 33.The best depiction of this masterpiece (and yes that is actually what 'Pharos' truly is) was made by the author [...]


    4. After two relatively stagnant years without any truly remarkable additions after The Unremembered Empire, and with an exception for Anthony Reynolds’ excellent novella The Purge, the Horus Heresy makes a comeback.And what a triumph of a comeback Pharos was. As one light dies within the story, another shines brightly, and that’s Guy Haley. Having singled the author out since The Shards of Erebus in Mark of Calth, my only thought at the time had been, “this guy’s a genius at characterizati [...]


    5. Guy Haley makes his Heresy debut with aplomb; presenting us with an alternately action packed and characterful novel. Whether it's taking a look at the ever fraught court politics of Imperium Secundus or presenting us with a brutal insight into the fractured and ever more malevolent Night Lords, he holds both attention and a good few continuing plot threads with deft hands.Haley presents characters that we care about or are interested in seeing more of; from the humble human auxiliaries on Sotha [...]


    6. The book came out as an e-book yesterday, and I finished it today. It's the direct sequel to "Unremembered Empire" and while it's useful to have listened to the audiobook "Herald of Sanguinius" it's not required. It also is starting to line up our characters for the return to Terra and Aaron Dembski-Bowden is working on a novel entitled "Master of Mankind". So it's Ultramarines vs Night Lords in the battle for the Pharos on Sotha. There's plenty of action, much of it from the point of view of so [...]


    7. Oh man, I really don't know where to begin. I've been a fan of Guy Haley's various warhammer fiction for quite some time now, though I have definitely not read all of it yet. He shows a remarkable talent for storytelling and creating exceedingly awesome character(or making them into one!). Pharos is Guy's first novel length release for the massive Horus Heresy series, and he does not disappoint. While the novel certainly starts off a little slowly with build up and character/world building, I st [...]


    8. This entry into the series made me smile. It was reminiscent of the earlier works that included the actual storyline and a set of old characters who get some time on stage alongside a new set of red shirts who get erased just after you begin to care for them. I am kind of sick of Ultramar, honestly, ever since Know No Fear it has been all Ultramar all Imperium Secundus all the time. Yes, that is clearly a large portion of this tale, but as the Python's liked to say, "Get on with it!"This novel h [...]


    9. Much like David Annandale, Guy Haley is proving to be one of those authors my opinion has gradually shifted on. Despite the utter contempt I held towards Death of Integrity, his surprising success with Baneblade and later Valedor proved that he was a reliable author in his own right, capable of forging great stories. Now, with Pharos, we have some of his best work to date and a great spin on several major legions.The story here focuses upon the Imperium Secundus once again and the world of Sotha [...]


    10. The secret, warpborn villainies want nothing more than to escape the immaterium for realspace and aggrandize their pleasures in the horror of torture and blood. They hunger for it. They would make this nightmare and themselves a 'reality'. Their gutlust is no lie. The Emperor, harbinger of mankind's destiny, it's 'manifest' destiny, that they should rule supreme among the millions of stars in the galaxy, he believes himself savior of the human race, it's sculptor and architect. But he denies his [...]


    11. You can read the full review over at my blog:shadowhawksshade.wordpressIn many ways, we are in what could possibly be called the middle-phase of the Horus Heresy, with novels such as Deathfire and War Without End and, of course, Pharos. The Dropsite Massacre has happened, Rogal Dorn is busy fortifying Terra, Horus and his allies have spread their web throughout the Imperium, and Guilliman has holed himself up in Ultramar, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Ruinstorm. Doesn't exactly pain [...]


    12. Please note, if you haven’t read The Unremembered Empire then this review will contain spoilers.Mysteriously numbered as 34 in Black Library’s Horus Heresy series despite Deathfire coming in at number 32, Pharos by Guy Haley continues the wider Imperium Secundus arc, picking up plotlines from Dan Abnett’s The Unremembered Empire as well as Haley’s own short story A Safe and Shadowed Place (from Death and Defiance). While the new Emperor Sanguinius sits uneasily upon the throne, Guilliman [...]


    13. Probably the strongest HH book to come out for a while but the benchmark wasn't set very high. While it's good to see Night Lords take a more prominent part in the action I am getting tired of traitor legionaries being one-dimensional bad guys that are bad for the sake of being bad. That being said, Kellendvar was perhaps the strongest character in this as we got to see some of his internal struggle.This is the true follow up from Unremembered Empire but I felt that too long had passed between t [...]


    14. A small force of human auxilia and Ultramarines defending a powerful communications array are taken surprise by a massive Night Lords force. Human, transhumance and daemons battle it out for the fate of humanity. The action is intense and the story is fast paced. Even a beloved character falls. it was a good bolter porn read.


    15. 3.5*, I think. Some great stuff here. Some slightly stilted moments at the beginning. A lot to recommend it. Looking forward to the next book in the series I have to read. (I'm trying to catch up - I'd let four Heresy novels to pile up unread.)




    16. Well I just finished this, the 34th installment in the Horus Heresy series. This book was really awesome! What lies within these pages is the tale of the Imperium Secundus, wherein the Five Hundred Worlds of Ultramar, ruled by Primarch Roboute Guilliman of the Ultramarines becomes victim to the Night Lords legion. Sanguinius, put in charge as the new Emperor, as news assumed from the three Primarchs within the new Imperium has forced the decision to be made, has taken over, reluctantly. As Prima [...]


    17. The quintessential Horus Heresy book. Pharos has all the ingredients of a great Warhammer 40,000 novel and Guy Haley manages to blend them together into a cohesive and engrossing story.The book continues the Imperium Secundus storyline. With the help of the titular Pharos, Guilliman the territory under his protection. However, the Night Lords stranded after the Thramas Crusade stumble upon it and then all hell breaks loose. I always like to read about less popular and less documented Legions and [...]


    18. What a beautiful, wonderful experience. Half way through it was a solid 4 star for me, but the later chapters had turned the good book into an amazing one. I feel like the main theme of Pharos is Brotherhood, the relations between Primarchs, battle brothers and actual birth brothers of the unfortunate Nostraman descent, human soldiers and space marine neophytes. Heart warming friendship between one of my favorite loyalist characters, Barabas Dantioch, and Alexis Polux brought a tear to my eye in [...]


    19. Another solid entry into the series; even though i'm not a fan of the whole "Imperious Secondus" sub plot thing.The Night Lord's launch an attack (almost by accident) on the Pharos the xeno-tech that is illuminating the area cut off by the Ruinstorm. Can the outnumbered and surprised defenders hold out long enough for Gulliman to send reinforcements or will the Avenging Son's realm be cast into darkness for good?Yeah, don't start with this book.Of all the Traitor Legions Cruze's Night Lords are [...]


    20. A very enjoyable book, a masterwork in making two kinds of the same transhuman (space marine) intensely alien to one another - the approach of the Night Lords and Ultramarines is ying-yang stuff, particularly as the Night Lords sink into a morass of nihilism while the Ultramarines cling to an almost confucian belief in system. Amidst all this is, however, a story of empathy, as an Iron Warrior (the destroyers of walls) and an Imperial Fist (the builders of walls) grow closer in challenged times. [...]


    21. I have read the thoughts of others and I have to sayThis is the WORST book in the HH group. Fulgrim was pretty badbut this one even tops that. I have read everyone of the HH series and can say some of them are amazing! Soul Hunter, Fabius Bile, Outcast DeadEtc But this one horrible.1. The Pharos itself was difficult to understand 2. The Characters, none of them had any charisma, boring3. He made the night lords out to be the biggest wimp in the Entire Space Marines warrior group. They get killed [...]


    22. It has become a bit of a tragicomic love hate relationship between fans of the lore and the Horus Heresy. Collectively we are all shouting; get on with it! Book after book that seems to be getting us nowhere or collections of short stories that feel as ideas that did not get the green light for a full book, it is beyond enough it has become an insult. And yet once and a while we get a gem such as Pharos. The characters are all well developed, we get an interesting insight in the psychology of th [...]


    23. If you're looking for in depth exploration of the human emotion, keep moving. Anyone who knows how the Warhammer boys (and girls) operate should come into this book understanding that almost all of the main characters are going to die, the book is going to be grim, and even though the good guys win it still kind of feels like a loss. That being said, Pharos continues the Horus Heresy with usual gusto. The Ultramarines continue to fight for their empire against some pretty brutal, well terrorists [...]


    24. This is one of my favorite books in the series so far. Plenty of action, so great links to things in the 40k universe, and more of the vicious Nightlords. I'm glad the bad guys from Nostromo are continuing to be represented in the novels as more than mustache twirling villains. This book keeps with the feel of the Nightlords trilogy.


    25. This book as some really good parts. I especially liked when it followed the Planetary Defense Force. The SGT that leads the is a very likable character. However, the book felt overly long and dragged. Also we get it the Night Lords are Evil. The best scene hands down is when Sanguinus is flying around the city and thinking about life and what is happening.


    26. Part of the Imperium Secondus storyline. A good side-story to the mainline Heresy storyline. The Pharos was an interesting addition to / reason for Ultramar's rise as a secondary Imperium.


    27. He said this, he said thatt exactly Hugo awarding winning writing.Boring. Usual boring gun battles etc etc etc
