Blood Gorgons is Zou's best novel to date. Though some degree of criticism is fair I believe that Zou has a great future with the Black Library. Within the ranks of the BL authors Dan Abnett is the king, with Graham McNeill a close second. Author Henry Zou well knows that even the Traitor Marines have a deep and fierce loyalty to their Chapter. The urgent need to reach, to fight beside, and (if needed) to rescue his bond-brother.

The Blood Gorgons are a traitor chapter whose actions are localised in the Bastion Sector. They were founded during the Cursed Founding. From the planets they have conquered in the Bastion sector, the Gorgons strike against the Imperium, also protecting those same planets to use as recruiting worlds. Their heraldry is the Gorgon head of old Greek mythology.

On arrival the marines are overwhelm Blood Gorgons is the third book in the loosely connected Bastion War series of novels by Henry Zou. The Chaos Space Marines who first briefly appeared in Emperor's Mercy now take centre stage. After the loss of the leader through treachery the Blood Gorgons chapter are in disarray as a call for help from one of their important recruiting worlds is received.

The Blood Gorgons Chaos Space Marines are called to one of their recruiting worlds as the populace is struck down by a plague of mutation. Facing a hostile environment, shadowy xenos enemies and treachery from within his own forces, Sargaul must dig deep into his hatred and determination to leave the planet alive.

The Blood Gorgons are generally considered to be a pretty awesome piratical, renegade chapter of Chaos Space Marines created by Henry Zou for his novel of the same name. In doing so, he also did something that defied the very laws of the universe and Chaos: he made a batch of Chaos Marines that actually have half a shit worth of sense and purpose left in them. Their leader, Gammadin, has a FUCKIN' CRAB CLAW HAND.

Rare book
Blood Gorgons is Zou's best novel to date. I am well aware of some of the negative reviews of his two previous works, Emperor's Mercy and Flesh and Iron. Though some degree of criticism is fair I believe that Zou has a great future with the Black Library. Within the ranks of the BL authors Dan Abnett is the king, with Graham McNeill a close second. Zou represents a new wave of young talent that has been brought to 40K in recent years.

In his latest novel Zou focuses on the Blood Gorgons Chapter of the Chaos Space Marines, and what a Chapter it is! The Blood Gorgons are definitely one of my favorite Chaos Chapters to date, they are painted in such a unique light that they stand out among the ranks of blood thirsty zealots and vile scum. From their individual appearance and history to the nature of their Chapter, the Blood Gorgons offer a different experience than what readers are generally accustomed to. The Chapter itself is the true star of this novel. Zou writes fast and hard action, displaying the Gorgons in all their superhuman glory but this novel is far more than "bolter porn." This story offers violence, intrigue, loyalty (rarely found among Chaos Marines), treachery, zombies, and more. Zou's strongest skill is his ability to describe the world that the Gorgon's inhabit. My favorite part of the novel is the description of the Cauldron Born, the Gorgon's fortress ship. The Cauldron Born comes to life as this hideously majestic fusion. Anyone who has read and loved Aaron Dembski Bowden's awesome Nightlords novel, Soul Hunter, will be right at home with the politicking and infighting of a renegade Chapter that must raid and scavenge for subsistence.

Perhaps my favorite thing about Zou's work is that it takes the Warhammer 40,000 universe on a different path. Most BL authors tend to be following the legacy set forth by Abnett and McNeil. This is not a bad thing on its own, both are tremendously talented authors, but the problem is that there doesn't seem to be much deviation or innovation within the franchise. Zou's novels strike out in a new direction, for better or worse, he adds concepts and ideas that are likely to make some fans uncomfortable. I, for one, appreciate this bold approach but I can understand where others may not and I believe this has led to some negative reviews. The best way I can think to explain Zou's style may be the similarity it bears to Ian Watson's earliest works in the 40K franchise.

This is a great novel, definitely the strongest of the Bastion Wars series to date. I eagerly await Zou's next book. One final note, the cover art for this series has been superb and the art for Blood Gorgons is the best to date. This novel will sit prettily on your shelf once you finish it with a satisfied grin.
First of all, let me just say that this is the best Chaos Space Marine novel that I've read, surprising, since I've found two other novels about Chaos Marines absolutely unreadable (Soul Drinkers and Word Bearers). The book is engaging, the action scenes are abundant and well written, characters are interesting and I think the author has a good feeling for the 40K universe. It is definitely a recommended read.
From the point of view of a Chaos Space Marine, Zou crafts an excellent take on what a Chaos Warband does and how it operates.
Nice novel set in w40k universe
the book was great loved every page. just started reading the 40k series and i am impressed so far with the few books ive read
The Blood Gorgons (Chaos Space Marines) are weakened by the loss of their leader, Lord Gammadin, the Ascendant Champion. It is said that his demise happened on Belasia, where the dark eldar cultivated the remaining humans as slaves and sold them to others, even to Chaos Space Marine warbands such as the Blood Gorgons. Lord Gammadin had been betrayed by one of his own, the witch named Anko Muhr. But Muhr's traitorous deed remained unknown and it would not be his last.

The Blood Gorgons are called to the defence of one of their recruiting worlds, Hauts Bassiq. The population needs help against a plague of undeath. The expeditionary force is struck down by mysterious enemies. Bond-Brother Barsabbas, the only survivor, finds himself stranded. Determined to discover what is going on, Barsabbas uses his hatred as if it were fuel. He must use his cunning to, not only survive, but also navigate his way to Ur, the only city on the diseased world.

The troubles on Hauts Bassiq could cause a Chapter war from which Muhr is positioned to emerge the victor. Muhr's new dark patron is destroying Hauts Bassiq, and in return for Muhr's role, this patron is willing to aid the witch in his ascension to power. The Blood Gorgons are threatened from within and without. Things are becoming so hopeless that there are those among the Chapter who are beginning to openly admit that the time of the Blood Gorgons is ending.

**** THREE & A HALF STARS! Author Henry Zou well knows that even the Traitor Marines have a deep and fierce loyalty to their Chapter. The main attachment each feels is for the brother he shares a blood-bond with. The urgent need to reach, to fight beside, and (if needed) to rescue his bond-brother. Only his loyalty to the Chapter as a whole is more important. It never crossed my mind that betrayal could come from one of the Chapter's few unbonded members. Fortunately for us it did cross the author's mind. In this, Zou's third Bastion Wars title, readers can safely indulge their blood lust. From the beginning, up until the very end, this story is non-stop action with numerous battles.

There are many characters in this story. Most play minor roles. Some enter only to expire within a page or two. Yet each character that plays a lengthy role has been given a creative background. Even the background of the Chapter itself is detailed. This helped me wrap my mind around the traitor/loyal mind-set of a Chaos Space Marine. My biggest problem is that the story jumps around too often. It not only leaps between various characters, but also between places (ships and planets). If you put this book down for too long you may return and be disoriented or confused for awhile. Readers that crave battles, yet does not mind if the story jumps about, will enjoy this dip into the lives of the Blood Gorgons. ****
