Summary

The Heresy came to Calth without warning. In just a few hours of betrayal and bloodshed, the proud warriors of the XIIIth Legion - Guilliman's own Ultramarines - were laid low by the treachery of their erstwhile brothers of the XVIIth.

Now, as the planet is scoured by solar flares from the wounded Veridian star, the survivors must take the fight to the remaining Word Bearers and their foul allies or face damnation in the gloomy arcology shelters beneath the planet's surface.

In the novella-length Calth That Was, Graham McNeill highlights the fateful encounter that will alter the destiny of Captain Ventanus and shape the face of the Ultramarines Chapter for 10,000 years to come. The battle for Calth is far from over.

Excellent Stories

i was put off by the other reviews but took the risk and was not disappointed. these stories fill in some gaps in between know no fear and other books in the series and the last 2 stories involving the athem and Ol Pierson give more human color and depth to the multi millennium conflict that is going "just as planned"

So so at best

Not the best in the series by a long shot! Not the worst either. Couple early short stories are decent, most of the middle can be skipped, and the last two are the best!

Wasn’t entertained

Out of all the Horus Heresy I’ve read or listened too this was the least entertaining. The performance was great. However it was the Word Bearers stories I found to be lacking.

Narrator matters

I have listened to quite a few different narrators now and believe me it really matters. Some of this book is superbly done. Other times when a different narrator is reading it is just ok.
