    One thought on “The Ultramarines Omnibus

    1. Chris on said:

      OK I admit, this kind of book is for guys what I suppose a Harlequin romance is for girls Ultramarines has a lot of testosterone loaded action and won t win any literature prizes, but it s fun.

    2. Doreen on said:

      Book 1, Nightbringer, was good, definitely 4 stars It had intrigue, interesting characters, plot twists so a good read Book 2, Warriors of Ultramar, was like that sequel they make in the movie industry to capitalize on the deserved success of the first one pretty bad, but having enough of the flavor of the first that you forgive it its flaws The 3rd book, Dead Sky, Black Sun, was just awful All blood and killing and synonyms thereof The worst part is, I borrowed this book to make some sense of t [...]

    3. Sam on said:

      This book is actually a collection of 3 books set in the Warhammer 40K universe Overall, not a bad collection if your a fan of the setting or a fan of war stories.Book 1 2 in this collection were by far the best The second was especially good if you like men fighting against impossible odds think Alamo, but on planetwide scale.Book 3, sad to say, was a waste of space Unless perhaps you like Dante s Inferno It was pretty much the story of 2 space marines super soldiers , journey through the Warha [...]

      30,000 years from now, a God Emperor will arise and unite all of mankind against the many, many forces that seek our enslavement and or eradication Most beloved of the Emperor s sons was Horus, his warmaster, who rebelled because daddy wasn t paying enough attention to him But greatest of his sons was Roboute Guilliman, Primarch of the XIII Legion To call Guilliman a genius would be a horrendous understatement Among his many achievements, he authored the Codex Astartes, the rules by which a chap [...]

    5. Chip Hunter on said:

      Collecting McNeill s first three Ultarmarines novels, this omnibus represents some of the best WH40K fluff to be found IMO, it is a close call between Graham McNeill and Dan Abnett for the most talented writer publishing under Black Library company, with the slight edge going to Abnett If you re already a fan of WH40K fiction, this is a Must Read, and if you re new to the universe, this would be a fine place to start Following the intrepid Uriel Ventris in his earliest adventures, these stories [...]

    6. Andy on said:

      Does exactly what is says on the tin.Plenty of battles, tankfuls of honourable chaps in enormous armour and the nastiest bad guys you ve ever come acrossHappily, the many and varied fight scenes are interspersed with a surprising amount of interesting characters and enough back story to ensure your attention doesn t wander too far and the book become overly repetitive.Will take a break from the Ultramarines for a while, but will definitely return to the second omnibus before long

      The Warhammer 40,000 universe is such a massive and entertaining one that it takes awhile to get to know it s major players As you read and become acquainted with the various heroes, villains, and armies that populate it you start to hear intriguing things from other fans about characters and concepts you may like So when you finally get a chance to read about something like a Space Marine Legion you ve heard so much about it you wonder if what you ve heard will live up to the hype.That s what h [...]

    9. Scott on said:

      The first to fall from my extended convalescence Truth is, I started this book almost three years ago, but to be fair to me, this is one of those omnibus editions that contains three full novels Let s be honest the dark and brutal world of 40K makes a novel a year than sufficient Overall, I liked this book s Because it took me three years to conclude, I am not able to give a thorough review of each details fade but I can say the following The first book, NightBringer was about the Ultramarines [...]

    10. JT on said:

      This book is 40k fluff, pure and simple Marines are sort of tough to write about since they re all essentially gods, physically and mentally engineered successfully to be flawless unless you re corrupted by Chaos of course, and then you re still incapable of flaw or weakness but just evil minded So everything that isn t dealing with a fall from grace storyline which all authors end up trying to utilized most fail turns into a straight action shoot em up Which is fine as far as reading for entert [...]

    11. Angel on said:

      I finally finished this big omnibus This volume collects the first three novels chronicling the adventures and battles of Space Marine Captain Uriel Ventris and his 4th Company of the Ultramarines This is all out escapist military science fiction but do not let that label fool you There is some very good writing in these novels, and at least once I found myself really sympathizing with Captain Ventris That particular instance for me came in the novel where the inquisitor lied about the fate of a [...]

    12. Stefan Teleu on said:

      This book was pretty interesting It was as action packed as expected but some parts of it I liked, and some were a bit disappointing It is structured in 3 parts which don t really have any relation to one another except for their chronological setting The first part is about politics, corruption, space elf pirates and evil things older than the universe It was pretty captivating, however what bothered me was the fact that the focus on the main characters was minimal and that it introduces a grea [...]

      This book was really an impulse buy from my short lived time as a Warhammer 40K player I played as the Ultramarines so it really was only logical for me to be interested enough in this book to warrant buying it I really didn t expect much out of the book as most Warhammer books really aren t anything special.I was pleasantly surprised when I immediately not only became engrossed with the book, but also found that the book was written and thought out to an extremely high quality The book is actua [...]

    15. Derek Weese on said:

      Nothing new to say that hasn t been said before about this series, so I ll keep this brief The settings are truly epic, these are Graham s earlier works, and their still awesome seriously, why does this guy not get the respect he deserves Oh yeah, he writes genre fiction The scale, as always, is grand and yet he still finds time to make you care about the characters and to connect with them.A lot of the charm of his writing are the little things such as showcasing the average person In the secon [...]

    16. Tylerm McLeod on said:

      The novels plot is that alien raiders are tormenting planet Pavonis and the government is going haywire The Ultramarines are sent to fix things up They find something that changes everything The main character is Uriel Ventris He commands the 4th line of Ultramarines The governor of Pavonis is Shonai I liked this book mainly because of all the violence and war At times to me the book was slow and boring The pages were also long with lots of words Near the end the narrator hooked me and it become [...]

    18. Greatredwarrior on said:

      A solid offering from the Black Library, but nothing to go and recommend to everyone Book 1 is ok, but has kind of inexplicable events Book 2 is awesome but all the Snow Dog parts can just be skipped whole with no loss to the story at all just speeds things up , and Book 3 is actually disappointing with huge amounts of gore and horror but nothing worthwhile.Ultimately the failing of this Omnibus is the real lack of character development for Uriel or Pasanius There s a lot of running around and k [...]

    19. Brian on said:

      Honestly speaking, It held my attention to a point that I can no longer put down the book until the very end And this is due to the fact that the action driven plot was really well done It reminded of the classic action packed films i.e Rambo, Predator, Terminator and so forth that really made me forget the cares of the world for an hour, as the film entertained me with action and simple plot lines of Hero and Villain The Ultramarines Omnibus is the same The plot is simple and pretty straightfor [...]

    20. Craig Tyler on said:

      I had heard from different sources that Graham McNeill had a way with writing Military Futuristic Battle Science Fiction And I have to say, the novels were gritty, descriptive narratives of just that.Sometimes the characterizations were lacking, but that has to do with the rapid pace in which McNeill propels the action and story along There are points in each novel This is a three novel, omnibus edition in which the action seems to move in real time, and you can t read fast enough to keep up Rec [...]

    21. Josh on said:

      It was all right, but there was a lot of gore and a lot of synonyms for gore There s only so many times you can describe someone or an alien being eviscerated before it becomes rather tedious.I ve been an avid follower of the Warhammer 40k universe for a long time, as well as a huge Space Marine nut, and don t get me wrong, it s dark and can often times be very bloody and or gory but this carried it to excess in both the first and last books of the omnibus There was so much description of gore a [...]

    22. Ding Ong on said:

      Well, this was the first Warhammer40k book about the Astartes that i had read Often i had wondered how stories of spacemarines would be like in books, since they are mostly action packed This book was not a letdown, there was sufficient story mixed into the action, though reading all the detailed descriptions of the gore and action starts to get a little tiring when it is read a few times Still, it gave me really good insight on how the Ultramarines worked, how they are bound by their codex, dut [...]

    23. Mark on said:

      The short story to kick things off, Chain of Command , is a nice intro to the main characters The first two full novels, Nightbringer , Warriors of Ultramar are excllent 4.5 STAR pieces not quite perfect Too bad things go a bit downhill from there The Dead Sky,Black Sun novel has interesting plot but too much of the gothic phrasing I guess when you are dealing with Hell and demons that will happen But it goes a bit overboard with the freakish gigantic unbeatable evil and the over blown graphic n [...]

    24. Nathan Avery on said:

      Well written and enjoyable to read, but not much in the way of originality You can only read about a Space Marine commander thinking outside the codex so many times before it starts to get stale I read this book after Grey Knight s Omnibus which was published later so technically it is the derivative of the two , and the books almost mirror each other, right down to the final books about being stranded on a Chaos planet.

    25. Christopher on said:

      In the 41st millennium there is only war The Empire of man once stretched through the stars, now most of its technological prowess is lost and what remains is guarded with a fanatical zeal Humanity is assailed from all corners by its enemies and only the Adeptus Astartes stands against them Amongst them

    26. Sven Mysterioso on said:

      There s a bit of weirdness and non canon action in here Our hero and his sergeant are just really too human.They are knights errant than the supermen they are supposed to be Space Marines are so foreign in thought and deed that they are really alien That s one of the big conflicts of the mythos.But its written well, and it was three books, so it has to be good for you to muscle through the ENTIRE thing.I wouldn t re read it though.

    27. Brian on said:

      The trilogy goes from great to good to ok The first book had the most uncertainty as to who was working against the Imperium and to what ends The second book had a clear foe, yet still retained some interesting twists Unfortunately, the third book was set within the confusing mass of Chaos, which limited my interest in the story It is nice to see Captain Ventris wrestling with the internal dialogue questions that us normals have every day.

    28. Jeffrey M on said:

      Sent to Pavonis to deal with a rebbelion, Uriel Ventris gears up for just another quick mission That was 7 monthes ago With only his battle brothers at his side they face rebels, heretics, crazed polititions, and even a dark god whose only goal is to devour all life and power from anyone foolish enough to test his might Will Uriel Vemtris survive this demonic encounter Or will he fall to chaos as so many have done before him Only time will tell 5 Stars.
