    One thought on “Cybernetica”

    1. Review also published hereCybernetica is one of the few Horus Heresy books that I felt were more of a chore to read than a pleasant experience. I did not enjoy it. I had to re-read sections over and over because they just wouldn't sink in, or I'd go back to re-read parts out of a feeling I missed something vital, especially after seeing praise for said sections online. But in the end I still feel unimpressed and dissatisfied with the story and its characters, and the big amount of action sequenc [...]

    2. Nah Another 50/50, and quite literally. Started strongly, first half of the book was intriguing, like a good beginning of an even better story. But that's not how things turned out. I had a hard time enjoying the second half, even the plot twists were unable to do it for me. On to the next one

    3. A two star rating is defined as "it was ok" by . That is perfect for this book. The most interesting characters are left behind early in the story and it quickly plummets into mediocrity from there. The writing lacks the descriptive power of Abnett, Dembski-Bowden, and McNeill, feeling repetitive and uninspired. Learning about some of the Mechanicum's inner workings and their vigilance against techoheresy was nice and of course the Vertex system was pretty mind-blowing. However, none of it satis [...]

    4. Ah Cybernetica!The rumored novella, that came in and out of existence for a number of years, and let me tell you, it was worth the wait! The Carrion was a awesome and interesting character to see the story through, and I really found myself becoming attatched to both him and his comrades The Null and The Void. It has been too long since we were last on the Red Planet, and seeing it from another perspective, as well as seeing some of the abominable machines employed there, was a treat. I found th [...]

    5. This story started out very strong giving readers an insight into the world of Heresy-era Techmarines and their role on Mars. The initial fight was also very pleasing to read - I always like to read about Iron Warriors. But the the book lost me. Since it is a novella a great deal was glossed over and it felt obvious that this was the case. The main characters travels across Mars lacked scale and the awe that was meant to be conveyed fell flat. The combat devolved into the author always having so [...]

    6. While most recent Horus Heresy releases have moved the story forward chronologically, for the latest Limited Edition novella, Rob Sanders’ Cybernetica, Black Library have taken us back to an earlier point in the timeline. Set on Mars just as the Heresy begins, we follow a Raven Guard known as The Carrion, sent to train as a Techmarine after he was grievously wounded and left unable to follow his legion’s way of war. Alongside brothers from other legions he finds himself fighting to survive a [...]

    7. Always love the tech savvy stories revolving around troublesome mars, but especially AI. Its warhammer 40k biggest taboo, hell even for the warped dark mechanicus AI is considered heretical.Yeah we get it, tech marines play their part but are most of the time ignored. I think it gives a new perspective on what it means to be a techmarine and that it doesn't always have to be a bulky overconfident iron warrior.The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak RIP Carrion

    8. Frustratingly similar to Rob's Archaeon: Everchosen in that the first third or so is wonderful character stuff, then it just devolves into things beating the crap out of each other. By the time the big third act "reveal" happens, I'd long since went into auto-read mode that I forgot the significance of it. Oh well.
