Publisher's Summary

Recalled from the Great Crusade after Ullanor, Rogal Dorn and the VIIth Legion were appointed as the Emperor's praetorians - but only after the Warmaster's treachery was revealed did the full extent of that sacred duty become apparent.

Now, the Solar System comes under attack for the first time since the war began, and many of the seemingly impregnable defences wrought by the Imperial Fists prove inadequate. With all eyes fixed firmly upon this new threat beyond the gates of Terra, who in turn will protect Dorn from the enemy within?

wow

I really really really liked this story. the narration is excellent. the story arcs are well crafted and have nice connections and call backs to earlier books. if you've put a lot of effort into the HH series you'll find a lot of that rewarded in this book.

I highly recommend this book. I'm not big on reading all of the anthologies for HH and I tend to skip them. I prefer longer stories like this one that develop long term story paths.

Heavy Bolter Porn with a Great Climax!

The story started off with a lot of descriptive description and not a lot of dialogue...but flourished into deep characters and relationships. Brilliant down to the very last word. Stay for the after credits.

dull as sin

i really struggled with this one.
the narration by jonathan Keeble is top notch as always but i found the story itself to be dull and sin and a real slog.
if youre super into 7th or 20th legion it may be the right thing for you but it was jot my cup of tea.
