Summary

Primarchs Book 8.

For long years, the White Scars have fought for the Imperium, bringing worlds to compliance. But when a new project, to embed psykers in the Space Marine Legions, seems likely to come to fruition, Jaghatai Khan must decide if he will comply.... 

Listen to it because Chris Wraight returns to the Khan of Khans with a tale set at the height of the Great Crusade and showing the momentous decisions that, in some ways, led to the darkest events of the Horus Heresy.

Mid tier for the primarch series

I would have preferred the story to be more on Jagathai's background before the Imperium, but I did enjoy the part about the beginning of the legion on terra and the dialogues of the primarchs. I would rate this mid tier of the primarch series and if you like the White Scars, this is still a "must listen".
Narration was great, as in pretty much all the 30K (and 40K) books.

fantastic.

A great read with some nice little nods to the other Scar books. Chris Wraight has done an outstanding job fleshing out the Whute Scars Legion again.

Could have done more with this

Scars and Path of Heaven were great and really put the WS on the map as the thoughtful, reflective legion, but this doesn't really add anything. The Primarchs series seems pretty variable - Peturabo was really great.

"For the Khan!"

This is a must for any 40k fan! We get to see the greatness of the khan and see his love for his people. All he wants is speed!

Jaghati

Honestly, Jaghati is a difficult character to really enjoy as he lacks any major traits the other Primarchs have tharake them unique. He comes off as rather bland.

The Khan is center stage in this one.

This is the third book I've read in the Primarchs series. The other two, Roboute Guilliman and Leman Russ, were the story of a campaign. In that context, we learned more about each Primarch. Jagataghi Khan stretches from the Khans initial time on Terra to the very beginning of the Chondax campaign more than a century later. The story is broken down into major events during that time frame making it a little disjointed. There isn't really an overarching story. The only common thread throughout, is the White Scars philosophical conflicts with the Imperium and their views regarding psykers and the Librarius. That being said the book is a lot of fun to read. Wraight focuses entirely on the Khan and his closest advisors. If, like me, you enjoyed his previous White Scars stories you'll enjoy this.

Khan!!!

While the story does highlight how the legion comes about. There is some lacking depth to the story. Feel they could have explored them deeper.

Enjoyable, wish there was more primarch talking

I did enjoy this book but honestly I was hoping for more interaction between the brothers especially Jaghatai and Horus, but it was still enjoyable

Great story of an overlooked Primarch

The story was well paced, from front to back. I hope to learn more from this dimple yet complicated man.

Outstanding!

As usual, Chris Wraight brings the White Scars to vivid life. You know a Heresy book is great when you want to collect a new Legion by the end of it. Not sure how long I can resist painting up an army of the Ordu thanks to Mr. Wraight's incomparable work.

Excellent

Warhawk of Chogoris is spread over a span of time from Jaghatai's first visit to Terra up to the victory at Ullanor. We get to see how the relationship between the Khan and his legion and the Imperium evolves. Also new interactions with his favored brothers Sanguinius and Magnus. We see how they all support the librarius, but come to it from different philosophies. An incredible read. Keeble is awesome as always.
