Publisher's Summary

After a long and gruelling conflict, the traitors at last close upon Terra. But time is dwindling for an attack.

Both Guilliman and the Lion are returning with all haste, and their armies could turn the tide. The hosts of the Warmaster must unite, for only then can they attack the Throneworld itself. While Mortarion is sent on ahead as the fleet’s vanguard, it falls to Lorgar and Perturabo to marshal Fulgrim and Angron, both now elevated to daemonhood and perhaps beyond even the will of the Warmaster to command. But Horus lies wounded, and, as the greatest battle the galaxy has ever know looms, it is up to Maloghurst to hold his fractious Legion together and to wrench Horus himself from the edge of oblivion.

Legion Chaos Revealed

Wonderful. So many players, no bolter porn (I like bolter prom when done well) to speak of, characterization, depth, sorrow. Par excellence.

Hard to follow along to at times

The book hops between the perspectives of multiple characters so frequently I couldn't follow what was going on half the time. The story was kinda boring when I could grasp what was happening. There are much better books in this series that describe the lead up to the Siege of Terra. Pass on this one.

Great Book

Amazing book! If you like primarchs, then this is for you! The start is a little slow because it is explained from three viewpoints, but Lorgar, Perturabo Drive the action, then Fulgrim, Angron and Horus take over! I love the primarchs and this book was awesome!

so awesome

I've been waiting for this book to come out for months. Not only was it worth the wait, it was better than I could have imagined. If you skip to the end if the series this one is still a must!

Not sure about this one.

it progressed the story well enough but it wasn't one if those that I couldn't put away until it was finished. there are some bits that we're very good but overall I was left feeling "meh".

A fantastic insight into the traitor Primarchs

A book that shows the fragility of the sons of Horus wirhout the warmaster and the traitor alliances as a whole. Also gives a great insight into the differences between the ascended and non-daemon Primarchs and their allegiances. A story that shows just how much of a knife edge the traitors were on just prior to the final assault on Terra. A must reas for heresy fans.

Fantastic driving listen

Really enjoyed the way the book was written through the eyes of characters untill now not fleshed too much in the series. The story of horus equerry was my particular favourite, someone so close to horus, and showing the legions begin to shatter and change from the standard we'll worth a listen.

Good but not essential

Horus Heresy is at the Clone Wars stage where they're delaying the final transition to the Siege of Terra. In the case of later titles such as Old Earth it works well but here it's just an issue of logistics for the traitor side. The story is fairly simple - Perturabo and Lorgar are sent to fetch Fulgrim and Angron. What follows is not at all unexpected.

French is a good writer - though he's usually a little short on plot he's great with detail and as one of the darker writers of the Library he's often able to get away with it. The best parts of the book show the schism within the Sons of Horus but really it's Maloghurst who saves the book, with even Lorgar being reduced a supporting role. Nothing for the overall arc is accomplished here so you're free to skip this. However if you're like me and have read everything (even Battle for the Abyss) then it's similar to Path of Heaven - a good read though one you probably won't revisit as frequently as The First Heretic or Legion.

A sense of movement, finally!

This was a pretty good listen, the book is split into three stories which follow three sets of characters. Some cool new lore for Chaos fans, good characters, id probably have given it a 5 but the story arcs felt a little dragged out in places.

Sets the scene for the invasion of Terra, finally. Enjoyed this book.
