I finished Prince of Crows in under 10 hours two days ago and I must say that it is frakking fantastic!
Sevatar is without a doubt now one of my Top 5 Warhammer characters. He always has a line, is hilarious either on purpose or without realising it, and has one of the most belligerent attitudes towards the Primarchs I have ever seen. He's also crazy as one stunt unquestionably proves, even a Primarch wouldn't have tried to do what he did. :lol:
The story itself is damn interesting. Two segments, the first showing the Night Lords final battle in the Thramas Crusade and the second showing Curze growing up in Nostramo Quintus and becoming the King. If any one Primarch needed to have their childhood story told its Curze, he had the most interesting past of all the Primarchs and it explains his reasoning behind his beliefs on justice and his subjugation of Nostramo Quintus. Sevatar's story was just as entertaining, as he pretty much takes the reins of the Night Lords Legion and guides it along its path for the remainder of the Heresy, and helps take part in one crazy as hell assault.
And of course the ending was great, and exciting as it puts the Night Lords in a whole new situation.
Another element I vastly enjoyed is Sevatar's ability to make unintentionally hilarious quips. Throughout the story he made me laugh with at least seven quotes that I just found absolutely side-splittingly funny. A few examples here,
Another thing I enjoyed was the depiction of the Emperor and Curze meeting for the first time, and the new concepts it introduces.
One thing about PoC that did confuse me slightly was Sevatar's secret, i'm fairly confident I know the answer but there is something else that it could be that I can't discount.
Prince of Crows gets a 9.4/10 in my books, its definitely one of my favourite Heresy pieces and it makes me anticipate ADB's Night Lords Heresy book even more. I just have one request now.
PLEASE DON'T KILL SEVATAR ADB!! HE'S TOO AWESOME!!
