Publisher's Summary

Unaware of the wider Heresy and following the Warmaster's increasingly cryptic orders, Roboute Guilliman returns to Ultramar to muster his Legion for war against the orks massing in the Veridian system.

Without warning, their supposed allies in the Word Bearers Legion launch a devastating invasion of Calth, scattering the Ultramarines fleet and slaughtering all who stand in their way. This confirms the worst scenario Guilliman can imagine - Lorgar means to settle their bitter rivalry once and for all. As the traitors summon foul daemonic hosts and all the forces of Chaos, the Ultramarines are drawn into a grim and deadly struggle in which neither side can prevail.

Hated Marines before this book

Now I own 3000 points of Ultras... for Calth!

This is some top notch narration, a bit confusing at first but oh so worth it. God I hate lorgar.

Detailed, Perspective Driven Heresy Account

Abnett and Armstrong never disappoint. Vividly detailed betrayal, foreshadowed every step of the way bringing a mix of emotion.

As if the Red Wedding and Istvaan III had a child...

One of the best in the series

Just finished and loved every minute of it. This is the first of the Horus series that I have ever written a review for , because it’s just that good.

Lots of action, great narration

Narrator was exceptional, he performed lots of distinctive voices for each character. The story had a nonstop pace and was full of action. I always enjoy the Roboute Guilliman and Oll Persons characters.

Best Horus heresy yet.

I loved this book and won’t bore the review reader with specifics. Though it starts slowly there is a constant slide as the enemy of mankind sets nefarious plans in motion. By the middle of the book, Dan Abnett assails the reader with some of the thickest action and fighting ever written for black library. A story filled with heroic deeds and fantastic character portraits that faithfully depict the ultramarines lowest and highest moments in turn. A great listen.

Good for Ultramarine fans

I am a big fan of Dan Abnett but this felt like word salad. too many non-important side stories and very verbose repetition.

To little about the Primarchs, too little about the Heresy. It starts well and ends pretty well but the subtle hints and connections to other HH novels are hard to follow unless you can memorize the previous novels and various GW codices and campaign books.

HH should be 40 stories, 18 pre-found story of each primarch with flashes to their legion. 18 stories during the crusades about the primarch and legion and 4 stories on Horuses fall and siege.

Not 40 books but 40 stories horever long that takes. Deliverance Lost for example was good but I wanted more on Corax before and during the crusade. Same for Guilliman.

The battle for Calth, as represented here, had too much about Mechanicum nobodies and scrap code.

There is a Mechanicum novel in this series which describes them well. I would rather have 5 more chapters of Guilliman flashbacks than bibaric love in the 31st millennium.

It is a must read for the series imo as it not only leads to the conclusion of the Heresy novels but also is info for the Primaris marines in 41st millennium stories.

Finally we are shown the SCALE of it all

I've read other books about the betrayals, battles and atrocities of the crusade but this book finally gives you a true sense of the horrific scale of the heresy and how doom could come to the world.

Dan Abnett does such a wonderful job describing the horror and helplessness that individuals must have felt. A fantastic read.

a slow beginning with a fun end

the first third of the book was a lot of disconjointed battles where they would go on and on about the damage caused. It picked up after the first quarter or so and the story got started. I am excited to see what happens next, because half the stories end in ways that beg for more. I would have liked if this book was another one or two hundred pages longer to finish everyone's stories.

Warfighting for the 41st Millenium

A perfect combination of story, heavy metal action and military philosophy. This book needs to be put on the Marine Corps Commandant's professional reading list.

pointless for the series and a chore to follow

The voice was fine but the story is laughable. I bought this on a recommendation that it was important for the overall story. I can assure you that it was not.
