Great, short 30k piece to better understand the Primarch of the 4th Legiones Astartes. The author gives you a great idea of the life and conquest of Olympia through Perturabos eyes while at the same time telling of the 4th's efforts against a gigantic invasion of Hrud. The climatic last third of the novel depicts the news of and punishment against the rebellion of Olympia. The greatest enjoyment is the ebb and flow of Perturabo's behavior and character as he grows and lear s what it means to be a Primarch, both as an Olympian youth and leader of Astartes. As with all traitor Primarchs, this story gives insight of the flaws of such wonderous, perfect leaders and this novel leaves you with a brilliant ending to close the story of the tragedy of Perturabo.

Burning of Prospero was ok compared to this great tale of the Vlka Fenryka. It takes place soon after Prospero and the story focuses on a few specific Wolves but mostly a side to Russ that is necessary to truly understand the honor of the Legion. A lack of action in the first half is made up by the multitude of important characters from other novels. The action of the second half is very exciting and well written.

One of the top 5 HH stories to read. You could argue this is another, great "Beginning" of the HH novels as it's the starting point of the Ultramarines induction into the war. Brilliant pacing, great climax, and awesome ending.

For those that are fans of the Space Wolves, this is a must listen. Otherwise this story is slow and Does not contain a lot of action. For a better account of the battle of Prospero, a Thousand Sons is much better.
