Description

Amidst the galaxy-wide war of the Great Crusade, the Emperor castigates the Word Bearers for their worship.

Distraught at this judgement, Lorgar and his Legion seek another path while devastating world after world, venting their fury and fervour on the battlefield. Their search for a new purpose leads them to the edge of the material universe, where they meet ancient forces far more powerful than they could have imagined.

Having set out to illuminate the Imperium, the corruption of Chaos takes hold, and their path to damnation begins. Unbeknownst to the Word Bearers, their quest for truth contains the very roots of heresy.

Stick with it

I thought it started a little slow but by the time you get to part 2 it picks up something fierce. Very important in understanding the backdrop of the horus heresy in its entirety.

A riveting story full of Heresy

I would recommend reading most of the important books in the Horus Heresy before this one, since it answers a lot of questions that are posed from those first books. Great book, great narration, and great plot!

The Word Bearers are actually likeable!

I've read about 10 books and the Word Bearers are always painted in a fanatical chaos light. However, I was surprised that the characters in this book were the funniest and most likable of all the legions thus far. That's what makes their fall all that much sadder. Like the Thousand Sons their fall to chaos is a tragedy.

Oh Lorgar....

Loved the book, a very cool look into a legions fall and their gene loyalty

But oh Lorgar you loathsome piece of piss, you who think of yourself as compassionet, yet sacrifice your own Sons in your desperat quest, you who betray your Sons, just as you feel betrayed by the Emperor (although he, as always, does seems like a grade A arse)... And worst of all, You a Primarch let yourself be manipulated by your own Son and a Mortal... Oh Lorgar you weakest of Primarchs... I Body , Mind and Soul....

Critical piece of lore

Great story, great narration. One tiny gripe is the narrators portrayal of the femal voice. It's kind of... Silly. Still, a very good story overall

An Excellent Intro to the Word Bearers

This is one arc of the Horus Heresy that I knew very little about. Now, I am hooked and can't wait to start Know No Fear. I personally didn't like how it jumps around at times, but once is I finished I see now that it needed to complete the story. Overall, this is a great book, and another awesome reading by Gareth Armstrong.

Could have been better

The narrator literally sucks at voicing LORGAR when he is angry. I felt like I was listening to some childhood villain's voice whenever he got mad. The writing style was not as intriguing as I expected it to be

Great book!

The book hooked me instantly. the character development is amazing all around. I'm new to the Warhammer 40k universe and I honestly haven't read a bad book this far in the series, but of all that I have read, this one has been the best.

Deep characters and amazing story telling. I loved this book from start to finish. I can't wait for the series to pick these characters back up.

One of best books in Series so far

Aghal Tar is the character that brought life to the Word Bearers legion.

The last moments of this book are a perfect cap on the events showing the legion has more depth than just being fanatics.
