The Blood Angels Omnibus Paperback
Part of the Warhammer 40, 000 S. series
In this two-book sequence, author James Swallow brings the Blood Angels Chapter to life.
In an epic story of heroism, corruption and betrayal, battle-brothers Rafen and Arkio find themselves pitted against each other in a battle for the very soul of the Chapter.
When Brother Arkio claims to be a reincarnation of Sanguinius, the Blood Angels' spiritual father, the message is clear: follow me or die.
Rafen kneels before Arkio and swears an oath of devotion - but the words are ashes in his mouth, and in his heart, he knows that he and his brother will have a reckoning that only one of them will survive...

Review by Zare
Blood Angels, one of the first founding Space Marines outfits, are a very strange breed of Space Marines. Suffering from uncontrollable rage attacks (sort of a gene imposed disease of sorts) that they constantly fight to keep under control (although it eventually destroys them) they are what you may call the Vampires - both in appearance and in extremely violent and blood-thirsty behavior.But nevertheless when one considers that this storyline takes place in war-torn apocalyptic post-Heresy period I find it refreshing to have all Space Marines portrayed as human beings with their doubts and fears.Story is based around the plot of Chaos led Space Marines to corrupt the Blood Angels (and eventually all chapters that were created on the basis of the original Sanguinus' Legion) and bring them to the "dark-side" so to speak.Interesting collection.Recommended.
