Publisher's Summary

He is known by many names - Clonelord, Manflayer, Primogenitor. He is the epitome of deceit and perversion, and feared by man and monster alike. Once the Chief Apothecary of the Emperor's Children, the madman known as Fabius Bile possesses a knowledge of genetic manipulation second to none.

Now a renegade among renegades, he is loathed by those he once called brother, and even the most degraded of Chaos Space Marines fear his name. Exiled for his dark experiments, Bile has retreated deep into the Eye of Terror, leaving a trail of twisted abominations in his wake. But when a former student brings word of the ultimate prize for the taking, Bile is unable to resist being drawn once more into the cauldron of war. For in seizing this prize, Fabius Bile might yet discover the one secret his has been unable to unlock...the secret which will prevent his inevitable doom.

A great audiobook

Well narrated and masterfully written. Sci-fi from the perspective of unrepentant villains. This is not a book about the struggles of great heroes fighting for justice. Fabius is a vile creature, struggling to survive. He turned his back on humanity, on HIS humanity, long ago. Now his past has come back to scorn him, and his future runs short.

Best chaos story I've read since the night lords!

I had real doubts going in but this is actually the best chaos story I've read since the night Lords Trilogy after reading this I believe I will actually pick up the model!

disappointing ending... adding more words for min.

its my fault because I forgot these books can't change actual cannon, and without risk or loss the story becomes cotton candy.

like Fabius the book falls short of perfaction

it was an ok book, some of the bits were interesting with a look into how apothecaries operate and are perceived within the traitor legions. However, I did find it to be an exceptionally slow book that took quite a while to get going. it did have it's moments and there was some interesting characters but overall it felt very middle of the road

Vividly Grotesque and Intriguing

Excellent voice acting and narrating. Enthralling story with beautifully vivid imagery. A enjoyable 40k novel delving into the infamous 3rd legion and Fabius Bile.
