Publisher's Summary

On the world of Colchis, mighty religions rule a decaying society in the name of absent gods - until the arrival of Lorgar. Primarch, prophet, leader of destiny, the Golden One is raised by Kor Phaeron, priest of the Covenant, to be his weapon in a quest for power.

As religious war spreads across the planet, spearheaded by the Brotherhood of Lorgar, the primarch is plagued by visions of the future and the coming of the Emperor. To find his place in this new order, he must reach balance between the teachings of his adopted father, Kor Phaeron, and the fate that he knows awaits him among the stars.

    "brilliant "

    well read and good story from the beginning.
    tells the whole story from being found as a child up to being found not like the other primach books that I was hoping would be more like this one.

    Story
    "More about Kor Phaeron"

    This is a solid book, very reminiscent of Biblical stories (as you might expect from the Word Bearers), especially Moses, and a little bit of David (of David v Goliath, fame).

    The story revolves around Kor Phaeron as much as it does about Lorgar; how he found him and treated him as a child, and ow that plays on his mind as Lorgar is older and leading his legion.

    Don’t expect too much action, as it’s about the developing faith and relationship of Lorgar and Kor, and the power dynamic between a Demi God and a demagogue.

    Jonathan Keeble is on form as always!

    Story
    "Like a good 'making of' documentary "

    Lorgar is definitely one of the more interesting of the Traitor Nine and has been blessed with some excellent writing in the course of the series. An erudite and scholarly man who in another lifetime would have remained a priest who ultimately engineers far more insanity than any of the other fallen Primarchs.

    It helps a lot to have read about the events of Monarchia in 'The First Heretic' to place Lorgar in the context of this novella. That said, there are no real revelations in this book and nothing to advance the story of the Heresy

    What you get then is a very good history of Lorgar's early life with Kor Phaeron and a good understanding of Colchis. As a character I find Lorgar fascinating and this book is ideal for me - atmospheric, slow-paced and full of detail, it really helps to understand the mind of Lorgar and determine if he was always going to fall to the Ruinous Powers or he had a choice. Not essential reading by any means but a most worthwhile one.

    Story
    "Love Gav"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was good, but Lorgars origin didn’t impress.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Lorgars home world sucks. It’s sort of a dune rip, sand critters and all. Wild religions. I just wanted Lorgar to be from a more complex society.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    ——


    Did Lorgar: Bearer of the Word inspire you to do anything?

    ThwHoris Heresy Books are abusing fans. From the Istvan massacre to book 46... 46? Who the hell writes a 6 book series? I’m a wh40k fan, but this book inspired me to edit for fans, not for profit.
