Publisher's Summary

Far out on the Eastern Fringe, the realm of Ultramar stands alone. Having weathered the Word Bearers' attack on Calth and the subsequent Shadow Crusade against the Five Hundred Worlds, the Ultramarines primarch Roboute Guilliman now draws all loyalist forces to Macragge as he contemplates a new future for mankind.

With the arrival of more and more fugitives from the war that has engulfed the rest of the galaxy, all distinction between friend and foe is lost - isolated from Terra by fearsome warp storms, is Guilliman making a bid for power to rival even the renegade Warmaster Horus?

Defiantly a favorite

Well written, suspenseful, and defiantly had me on edge several times. I think this is one of the best in the series and I really would like to read it again.

best in the series so far

best in the series so far, this book kept me on the edge of my seat and waiting at many corners... ties in with 26 very well and has a lot of great big characters.

awesome story and performance.

great story and performance! I felt it wasnt a giant Loyalist snuff story like most of the Heresy novels.......seriously, how the hell did the Imperium not fall?

Why don't people like this!?

I don't understand why people dislike this. It's awesome! Guilliman's snarky mom, how Guilliman feels about his mom, the interactions between the brothers, and the lower key but still bad to bone action. I totally recommend this if you like legitimate human interaction in a 40k story.

Paced like an action movie (or several)

There is a lot that happens in this book and it seems strange that so many storylines could progress simultaneously without messing up the pacing, but somehow it works! It's greatest achievement must be making Rowboat Girlyman a genuinely likable and "non-marysue" character. A great read if you are a fan of Conrad Curze, The Lion, Vulkan, Space Wolves or the 30k Universe's version of James Bond!

Enjoyed

Can't get enough of the Horus Heresy series, this book will not disappoint. If you have followed the series as I have this is a must.
