** Let's give a little background here. When we say that they sent the Ultramarines, we're not referring simply to the one thousand battle-brothers. We're referring to the Ultramarines and their successors chapters from the Second Founding. ''AllOfThem''. It's established that they have numerical superiority before the battle even begins. The book even acknowledges that the Ultramarines and their successor chapters don't need tactics, and can simply overwhelm them with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill sheer numbers]]. They still use tactics designed to instantly counter the Night Lords every traditional strategy because the Ultramarines are ''that'' disciplined. Talos admits that the Codex Astartes just beat the Night Lords in the most well-executed and straightforward siege he has seen since the Battle of Terra.

* Uzas, the human slaves and thirty raptors taking down [[spoiler: DemonicallyPossessed Marine Caleb]], ending with Lucrophys snarling ''I'll eat your eyes.'' Coming from a Chaos Space Marine, let alone a Raptor, that is a genuine threat.

* Talos achieves a CrowningMomentOfAwesome at the same time he crosses the MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Spending weeks torturing Tsagualsa's Astropaths, he finally has Octavia kill them with her [[DeadlyGaze third eye]], ensuring that it was an extremely painful death. What makes this amazing is that he had Octavia do it when they were sitting right on an Astropathic duct used to transmit psychic messages, ensuring that the Astropaths death-cries were carried along and received by Astropaths on multiple Imperial worlds, resulting in warp storms that could last either days or centuries, and in a few cases resulted in planets suffering daemon attacks. It's utterly horrifying that Talos could inflict that much pain on so many worlds but there is no denying that he really harmed the Imperium with this.]]

-->'''Malcharion''': My chronicle already ends in glory. Captain Malcharion, reborn in unbreakable iron, slaying [[spoiler:Raguel the suffer of the Ninth Legion]] for the second time, before at last passing into eternal slumber. That is a fine legend, is it not?\\

* Captain Malcharion, every time the story focuses on his perspective it is like reading words distilled with pure awesomeness. Especially so in his appearance in [[spoiler:Void Stalker]], where he does one of the most, arguably, heroic acts in a 40k novel; especially so since he is supposed to be one of the "bad guys".
