The wind screams. The dark night is freezing. Vossk, a Vostroyan Firstborn, shrinks into a rock against a howl of memories. Having disgraced himself by deserting his post during a terrifying encounter, Vossk had resigned himself to penal servitude, though yearned for the chance to redeem himself. But in the 41st Millennium, such dreams are hollow when a man’s reality has been shaken to his core. Found in the shadows of a pitiless cave, Vossk relives his tale to his rescuer....

The whole drama was brilliant. The horror was solid and it left me wanting more from Black Library. The performances were great and the story was top quality.

During the turbulent Reign of Blood, a great schism in the Imperial Ecclesiarchy threatened all of Terra and promised a darkness to rival the terrors of Old Night. Fell times have come again to the Imperium, and a War of Faith appears inevitable. Standing in the way of catastrophe is Celestine, the Living Saint and one of the greatest heroes of the age. Only she can reunite the warring factions of the Ecclesiarchy and prevent a second Reign of Blood.

These Primarch books have been great through and through, each one adding a layer to the Primarch they depict. Corax and his legion are given greater depth and I think that is a good thing through and through

I quite enjoy the books that look at epic figures from their childhood. The book Dante does something similar. This book left me with a couple of questions about Lorgar but it did illuminate him a lot more for me

Born to a life of political conflict, Perturabo was always considered a child prodigy among the people of Olympia - indeed, his philosophical and scientific works were beyond compare. But then, after his rediscovery by the Emperor and decades of thankless military campaigning on the Great Crusade, the primarch begins to resent his Legion's place in the Imperium.

This book is a brilliant look into the mind and history of Perturabo. Truly it shines a light on his character and psyche as well as illustrate the tragedy that is reminiscent of ancient Greek myth.

While I am saddened that a good chunk of these primarch books usually only half focus on the character in question. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this. Vulkan Lives!!!

The Khan is a fascinating character I'd love to see him in more books. This book does a good job introducing fans old and new to this awesome Primarch.
