Summary

As his Homo Novus project comes to fruition, Fabius Bile faces a new threat - the dreaded haemonculi of the Thirteen Scars. Can he marshal his forces to protect his creations, or are the New Men doomed to death? 

Listen to it because: discover what happens when you cross the Haemonculus covens...and what lengths Fabius Bile will go to in order to survive their deadly attentions.  

The story: in the centuries since his return from Commorragh, Fabius Bile has distanced himself from the affairs of friend and foe, content only to oversee the cruel evolution of his New Men. But when his creations are threatened by the monstrous haemonculi of the Thirteen Scars, the Manflayer is forced to seek out new allies and old enemies alike in an effort to preserve all that he has built. Homo Novus must survive...even if Fabius Bile must die to ensure it.  

Written by Josh Reynolds. Read by John Banks.

Great finnish to one of the best trilogies in 40k

Loves Reynolds nuances storys of the typical evil faction, operating on a grey scale.

Not as good as the two before it

Feels more like a book to make way for new models than to drive the story forward

Worst of the three books

I love this series, but this book is easily the weakest of the three so far with a very disapointing ending.

Loved it. but maybe rushed?

I loved it, a bit rushed ending. I would've loved the third part being its own book entierly. hopefully theres another one. there was so much to cover I don't fault the author. hopefully theres another and I will be there to get it.

another great installment!

The story continues with Fabius against the Eye and Everyone else If they had broken this up into two books I would have been even more over joyed.

A nice segue for Chaos

An interesting look into how Chaos gets it's way even when they don't want to.

Fabius Bile :

"If anyone know's how to kill a primarch it's Ezekiel Abaddon."
These words truly warmed my ❤ i love this book and everything it represents And can't wait to see the direction it takes us Chaos Space Marine Players into 9th addition.
*SPOILER*
STOP READING UNLESS .....U want to know where we are heading?

ok Good let's continue......

Fabius Bile vs Belisarus Cawl
Ezekiel Abaddon vs Robute Guilliman
Biles Marines vs Primarchs

Almost as good as the first two!

This one almost feels like someone else wrote it. A plot change, a minor detail missed, but still worth a listen. The narrator seemed to have trouble remembering which voices belonged to certain characters.
