I guess I m the only one who couldn t stomach this book I have to admit I did a little squee dance when I found out they finally wrote about the Sororitas However, when I sat down and read it, I almost tore the book in half Luckily I restrained myself and promptly returned it back to the library.My issue is that it read like a gothic romance novel where the female characters basically all of them were wooden dolls voiced by men I do understand the background of the Sororitas and understand the r [...]
I liked this book If you are a fan of 40K, particularly of the Sisters of Battle, then you should find it an enjoyable read If you didn t understand that last sentence, then stay away from this book You re going to be confused I m a sucker for the Sisters of Battle fluff , and so I am the target audience for the book A lot of people have criticized this book It had its problems, but nothing detracted from the entertainment value Sure, the plot is predictable and the characters a little bit lacki [...]
This could go easily to 4 1 2 stars, if not 5 But whatever the rating I enjoyed this book a lot I read it in paperback form, which is a big deal to me, as I have been a Kindle junkie for over 5 years now But I picked up this book for less than 5 and it was worth it to me to read it in PB.Lots of good ole sci fi action with these Battle Sisters A great plot and a pretty darn good evil cold hearted villain with a mysterious backstory that fits into the plot These Sisters are devout, determined, an [...]
I am the first to admit that I am a fanboy.I loved this work As with anything well done in the WH40K universe it is richly textured and I found myself strangely drawn to the passion of these warrior nuns, the Sororitas Adeptus Strangely as is this is so hot, and I shouldn t be thinking this Fanboy Sorry.It is very well written and the plot is quite good, and the wide variety of characters are distictve therefore easy to follow and remember.If all you want is high brow space opera and know nothin [...]
This is a rare non omnibus 40k book for me, but I m a big fan of the Sisters of Battle, and this is the only book out there I ve read James Swallow s Blood Angels omnibus,and wasn t terribly impressed, so I went in to this one with lowered expectations, and was pleasantly surprised The Sister are depicted as human than the Adeptus Astartes, but still powerful in their own right, and the author manages to cram in a good deal of witch purging Good combat, if you re familiar with all of the 40k te [...]
This is an AWESOME book to introduce the Sisters of the 40K universe We learn of unwavering faith and the costs that the sisters are willing to pay in service to both each other and the god emperor If you are a Novice to the 40K universe of books this is great place to get started.
One of the popular factions among Warhammer 40K players, but sporadically supported by Games Workshop, are the Adepta Sororitas a.k.a Sisters of Battle , the actual military arm of the Ecclesiarchy.I stumbled across a copy of Faith and Fire at Half Price Books Fire certainly comes into play throughout the novel The Sisters of Battle believe that the only good witch mutant heretic traitor is one who s not only dead, but burnt to a crisp Meanwhile, their psyker enemies often retaliate with witch [...]
The world was entertaining to dive into, the side characters had interesting developments The main tension was pretty good, not astounding, but enough to keep me reading I enjoyed the intrigue, secrecy, and build of the story Each supporting character had their place in the story, and the villain drove the plot This book would have been stronger if the story was from the villains perspective He drove the story, built the tension, and added emotion.The main success of the story was showcasing the [...]
A quick, easy to read, action based novel that has a squad of Sisters of Battle hunt down a criminal heretic as he attempts to enact his devious plan If you are looking for a novel that has psykers, action, and a heroine that rubs against authority but at her heart is on the side of good guys then this is the book for you.If you are into the Warhammer 40k universe, highly likely if you are reading this book, then the book follows a Sister Superior A Sergeant or squad leader in the Sisters of Bat [...]
It s the one thing I really don t like about the 40k Universe the quasi medieval religious rhetoric used by the Ecclesiastical, and for that reason I started this book with serious reservations.That being said, the principal character, grew on me, a kind of religious Maverick.
This book got better as it went along Unfortunately there were still some really cringe worthy bits The female protagonists were objectified and sexualised by random bit characters fantasising them, in a way I ve never seen with male protagonists in 40K.
I really enjoyed this the balance between battle and story was good though I felt the plot a little predictable in places I guess that is normal for Warhammer 40K.
This setting is heavy on specialist lingo, so to help me out I found a really detailed site warhammer40ka wiki this setting must have a huge following, the site is pretty big.So anyway, I looked up Sisters of Battle and found they wore Power Armor I looked up Power Armor and found it s like being in a mini version of an ard cart armour composed of shaped Adamantium and Plasteel plates, encased in a Ceramite ablative layer Each suit possesses a full suite of life support functions for operation i [...]
Bookworm Speaks Faith and Fire Sisters of Battle By James Swallow The Story The Adeptas Sororitas are the Sisters of Battle The combat arm of the Ecclesiarchy, the ruling religious body of the Imperium of Man, they are warrior women who purge the darkness from the Emperor s Light When a rouge psyker named Torris Vaun escapes on a Imperial planet, the Sisters of Battle race to capture him and in turn uncover a plot that could threaten the very future of the Imperium The Good The good is what the [...]
Great throughout, amazing finish I would like to say something off the bat I love the Sororitas They are by far my favorite faction in 40K That being said, I will still try to give the most unbiased review I can.The characters are quite interesting, not exceptional but nonetheless still very enjoyable to read You can t do to them anyways Giving them a love life or a unique feel would go against what the Sororitas are and by the end of the book, you experience what being a Sister of Battle real [...]
There and back again.After a relaxing pause re reading David Gemmel books, I ve returned to Warhammer 40K universe with a most excepted perspective Sister of Battle.I was a bit dissapointed in the end But that is another story.Faith and Fire Lexicanum quote The book features the Sisters of Battle who stand between humanity and damnation From the elite Seraphim warriors to the berserk Sisters Repentia, they are the strong arm of the Ecclesiarchy As the dangerous psychic heretic Torris Vaun escape [...]
Hey, finally, a James Swallow book I really enjoyed it has a fairly weak third act, sadly, but the first two acts are pretty solid.We follow some Adeptus Sororitas on the hunt for a psyker whose back story is basically just Jack from Mass Effect I REALLY enjoyed the psyker than any other character in this story, and wish we d had insight into his goals and gotten a bit out of him than we did, but still, overall, I was pleased with the outcome.I think the highlight of this book for me is when [...]
I liked this book, though it wasn t as good as Flight of the Eisenstein I expected that considering it wasn t a Horus Heresy novel Still it was good.The story follows a what I m guessing is a battalion or regiment sized group group of Sister s of Battle as they hunt down a rogue witch psyker on the world of Neva Once they catch up with him, however, they find out that things aren t as they appear.Overall James Swallow did a very good job of bringing to life the Emperor s badass warrior nuns the [...]
I really wanted to like this book I am a fan of the Adeptus Sororitas , but I could not The highest point of this book, in my opinion, was the good amount of descriptions of various religious and military rituals and ceremonies, which were very vivid and colorful But, though the story was not quite predictable, it seemed rather stale and not quite up to the standard that Black Library authors such as Dan Abnett set The atmosphere was suitably grim, though, as is customary.Also, I understand that [...]
World Building and adherence to canon terminology Here is where Swallow hits it out of the park I m guessing he decided to devote the bulk of his creativity into building a truly vibrant slice of Imperium life too bad it ends up stocked with static characters Swallow richly blends elements of parochial grandeur and steampunk technology We also get excellent depictions of the specific technology of the 40K universe Read the full review here hachisnaxreads 20
The Adepta Sororitas is my favorite army in Warhammer 40k ass kicking nuns in a testosterone filled universe So I was excited to read Faith Fire, a book starring this female warriors Perhaps expectations were very high, but this book doesn t seem to do them justice Actions scenes written by James Swallow were excellent, but the plot was linear and the characters felt very flat.Regardless, I will read the sequel, Hammer and Anvil, Necrons are on it
This book was alright, It wasn t terrible, but not spectacular either I was excited when I had found Faith and Fire, I thought Finally, a Sisters of Battle book and yet it just kinda left me feeling meh It had lot s of action and a good storyline, it was just the character development that bothered me The way the Sisters of Battle were portrayed just seemed so lifeless and flat It was interesting enough to get me through it, but it could have been so much better.
Out of all the various groups in the Warhammer 40k universe, the sisters of battle are my personal favorite and, in my opinion, most under represented And the author James Swallow does a fairly good job of representing
A great peek into the lives of the Adeptus Sororitas, but the plot felt forced and a little flaccid toward the end.
Was very glad the Sororitas were finally portrayed in their own novel Good read.
Very good book, didn t totally pick up on all the points during my first read, but an excellent book about Warhammer 40k universe.
didn t finish it maybe another time kind of dull.
I m a sucker for 40K books.
Conceptually I like the Adepta Sororitas, but this book was rather boring.
I thought that this was great book about the Sisters of Battle Especially in a genre dominated by the Imperial Guard and Space Marines.
