Publisher's Summary

The Heresy came to Calth without warning. In just a few hours of betrayal and bloodshed, the proud warriors of the XIIIth Legion - Guilliman's own Ultramarines - were laid low by the treachery of their erstwhile brothers of the XVIIth.

Now, as the planet is scoured by solar flares from the wounded Veridian star, the survivors must take the fight to the remaining Word Bearers and their foul allies or face damnation in the gloomy arcology shelters beneath the planet's surface.

In the novella-length Calth That Was, Graham McNeill highlights the fateful encounter that will alter the destiny of Captain Ventanus and shape the face of the Ultramarines Chapter for 10,000 years to come. The battle for Calth is far from over.

Wasn’t entertained

Out of all the Horus Heresy I’ve read or listened too this was the least entertaining. The performance was great. However it was the Word Bearers stories I found to be lacking.

Narrator matters

I have listened to quite a few different narrators now and believe me it really matters. Some of this book is superbly done. Other times when a different narrator is reading it is just ok.
