Summary

The Great Crusade has swept across half the galaxy, a million human worlds now embracing the truth and reason that comes with allegiance to the rule of Terra. But even such unparalleled success comes at a cost. 

Rumours abound that the Emperor plans to step back from the Crusade and raise one of his primarch sons to lead in his stead. Faced with the bitterly noncompliant human empire of Gardinaal and a leaderless host of Ultramarines, Thousand Sons and Emperor’s Children at his Legion’s command, the Iron Hands primarch Ferrus Manus decides to make an example that even the Emperor cannot ignore.

Not as good as the other Primarch books

The other books in this series give a solid look into the history that shaped a Primarch. This does not. It was a solid Iron Hands story but a poor Ferrus Manus story.

A good story.

This is the story of Ferrus Manus and his Legion, the Iron Hands.

Unlike Lorgar, Bearer of the Word (and presumably the other Primarchs books) this book does not center around Ferrus Manus and his upbringing: instead what we have is a tale of how the surrounding world reacts to him and how he interacts with it.

This story is told from a couple different perspectives, and is set during a compliance campaign which is perfect for a story centered around a Primarch. While some might feel that this book is missing the point, I have a theory that Ferrus is supposed to be a mystery - even to his own sons.

Take from it what you will, but ultimately it is a good story set during the days before the Heresy - before Horus set the skies on fire and dragged the Imperium into a brutal civil war. Give it a try; you can always return it and spend the credit on a different title if the style is not to your satisfaction.

Great listen

Can't believe I have become so wrapped up in the warhammer books. Backgrounds on the primarchs add so much to the stories on their legions. This was outstanding.

Great insight into the dour Iron Hands Legion

As ever the primarch series never seize to amaze with the depth of the story. Also tensions between the legions come to fore.
