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.

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.

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.

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....

Best book in the Heresy

This is without a doubt the best book in the series. It answers many questions regarding how the Word Bearers fell to Chaos, why Erebus is such a bastard and many more.

One of my favorite books, in general!

ADB's quality always impresses! The Word Bearers were always fascinating and Argel Tal is one of my favorite characters for sure.

great great job!

I love this lore

Absolutely great and the only complaint is that it has to end . Luckily there are 100s of other books to keep it going

unexpected perfect entry 40k

this was a captivating and excelent listen.
the final 10 or so chapters feel like an extended epilogue, but they are still awesome and worth listening to.

First Heretic Review

The story follows Argel Tal and the Serrated Sun Chapter from the ashes Monarchia to the Eye of Terror and then Isstvan V.
